The Barnes Group Advisors (TBGA), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, is partnering with TransMachine Additive (TMA), Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA, a division of TransMachine Technologies, to provide strategic leadership for the company, with Laura Ely serving as President of TMA, and TBGA providing technical support via the Technical Excellence Resource Model (TERM). The TERM will allow TMA access to TBGA’s technical expertise for application development, without the overheard burdens of a large business.

”We are excited to support TMA’s growth via the TERM concept,” stated John Barnes, Managing Director, The Barnes Group Advisors. “It is a great opportunity to leverage our diverse experience in Additive Manufacturing to reduce risk and accelerate time to profitability.” The objective of the collaboration is said to be to build on TMA’s aim to provide AM products by Electron Beam Melting (EBM), in an agile, cost-effective and customer-focused environment.

Barry Leonard, CEO of TransMachine Additive, commented, “I’ve always had a vision to expand our high quality, precision manufacturing presence in the US. With our investment in EBM Additive Manufacturing and the industry leading business and technical expertise of The Barnes Group Advisors, that dream is rapidly becoming a reality.”

TMA reported that it is ready to support customer programmes ranging from early application development to serial production. Full product solutions are said to be available, with project management including delivery of fully finished parts. TMA operates out of an ITAR-registered production facility, using an Arcam Q20plus and Arcam A2X system, and plans to be AS9100 certified by early 2019.
