Velo3D adds StarHagen to Contract Manufacturer Network

August 5, 2022

Velo3D, Campbell, California, USA, has announced that aerospace production parts provider StarHagen, Mooresville, North Carolina, has joined the Velo3D Contract Manufacturer Network with the purchase of a Sapphire Additive Manufacturing machine. This marks the first Velo3D Contract Manufacturer Network located on the eastern US coast.

“Our team has extensive experience manufacturing high-value parts for aerospace applications and to maintain our leadership position in the industry we knew we needed an Additive Manufacturing solution,” stated Scott Anderson, StarHagen Managing Director. “In our evaluation of offerings on the market we found that none could exceed the capabilities delivered by Velo3D. The company’s unique capability of printing parts with minimal supports and its extensive adoption within the aerospace industry— including with some of our existing customers— gives us the confidence that we will be successful with our deployment.”

StarHagen specialises in manufacturing with extreme precision for prototype and production volume manufacturing. In addition to its new Sapphire Additive Manufacturing machine, the company also operates a variety of CNC machines, including those capable of 4- and 5-axis machining, which will enable it to provide complete turn-key parts for its customers. StarHagen has experience working with various exotic alloys, including those commonly used in aerospace applications like Inconel 625. The company is AS9100 certified.

“While Velo3D provides many OEM customers with Additive Manufacturing technology for their in-house machine shops, many aerospace companies prefer to obtain finished parts from known and trusted contract manufacturers,” added Benny Buller, founder and CEO of Velo3D. “StarHagen’s extensive experience in delivering high quality parts for mission-critical aerospace applications makes the company a great candidate for a Sapphire printer.”
