Methods 3D opens new US Additive Manufacturing labs

Methods 3D Additive Manufacturing Lab

Methods 3D, Inc., a newly formed subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools, Inc. based in Sudbury, Massachusetts, USA, has announced the completion of seven Additive Manufacturing laboratories strategically located across the US.

Methods 3D advanced new Additive Manufacturing laboratories are equipped with 18 production machines including Direct Metal Printing (DMP), Select Laser Sintering (SLS), Stereolithography (SLA) and Multi-Jet models running 14 different materials.

A full complement of post-processing equipment such as EDM, CNC machining, automation and inspection is also onsite and each location is fully staffed by a dedicated team of sales, application engineers and service technicians. The Additive Manufacturing labs are in each of Methods Machine Tools’ technology centres located in Sudbury (Boston), Detroit, Charlotte, Chicago, Phoenix, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

“Our new additive labs are ideal for manufacturing professionals to consult our experts and explore ways to design and produce their components using the latest 3D technology integrated with conventional machining, automation and more,” stated James Hanson, Chief Operating Officer. “Engineers have been bringing their application challenges to us and we have been working with them to implement this technology into their manufacturing operations”

“By partnering with 3D Systems, whose core competencies complement Methods’ suite of metalworking machining and automation solutions, we will provide our customers the most advanced 3D printing available, in addition to the highest level of service, support and solutions that Methods Machine Tools is known for. We are at the front end of this innovative technology that is poised to grow exponentially,” added Hanson.
