Velo3D, Campbell, California, USA, has announced that Kevton Technologies, a subsidiary of Kevton Industries based in Houston, Texas, USA, has purchased seven Sapphire metal Additive Manufacturing machines. The purchase was announced during IMTS 2022 and is reported to be one of the largest ever with Velo3D from a contract manufacturer. The first two Sapphire AM machines are scheduled to begin producing parts in Q1 2023.

“Our team is seeing a strong trend towards Additive Manufacturing—especially within the aerospace industry—and our partnership with Velo3D will help us maintain our leadership position as a provider of manufactured parts within all of our key industries,” stated Kevin Nguyen, Kevton Technologies president. “After meeting with many vendors of Additive Manufacturing technology, we understood how transformational Velo3D’s fully integrated solution could be for our service offering.”

Kevton Technologies provides its customers with various manufacturing services, including CNC turning, CNC milling, coordinate measuring machine inspections, wire EDM, and other finishing services. The company has a range of certifications which include ISO9000/AS9100. The company’s new Additive Manufacturing division is expected to continue the company’s legacy within its key industries.

Benny Buller, Velo3D CEO, commented, “Additive Manufacturing is seeing extensive growth right now and we’ve only scratched the surface of the adoption we expect to see over the next decade. Companies with the foresight to acquire Additive Manufacturing technology now will be much better positioned to grow their market share in the coming years. We’re thrilled to be working with Kevton Technologies to help them establish themselves as a provider of mission-critical, additively manufactured metal parts.”
