Markforged, Watertown, Massachusetts, USA, a manufacturer of metal and carbon fibre Additive Manufacturing systems, has collaborated with Carahsoft, Reston, Virginia, USA, a government IT solutions provider, to accelerate the availability of industrial AM technologies to the U.S. Government. Carahsoft is expected to serve as Markforged’s master government aggregator and distributor, making the company’s metal and carbon system available to federal agencies and reseller partners via Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts.

The company’s Additive Manufacturing systems are said to produce metal and carbon fibre parts with high strength-to-weight ratios, which reportedly make it easier for users to implement additively manufactured parts in the field. Markforged stated that its industrial-grade printers are designed for use in remote locations and are deployed on six continents, and in some of the harshest operating environments.

“For decades, federal agencies have used lengthy and complex supply chains to send new or replacement parts to the field. Markforged is excited to work with Carahsoft and our value-added resellers to eliminate that burden with 3D printing technologies that produce custom tools and end-use parts in real time,” stated Brian Houle, Vice President of Global Channel Sales at Markforged.

Lacey Wean, Manager of the Markforged team at Carahsoft, commented, “Being able to produce tools and parts independent of existing supply chains gives field teams the ability to adapt to changing mission needs. We look forward to partnering with Markforged and our reseller partners to offer federal agencies the ability to deploy their own 3D printers and avoid the traditional costs and delays associated with external vendors.”
