Velo3D, Campbell, California, USA, has announced a partnership with Hartech Group, an advanced technology equipment supplier for the US federal government based in Denver, Colorado, to distribute Velo3D’s metal Additive Manufacturing technology to government agencies, including the Department of Defense.

“We are a well-known prime contractor specialising in providing complicated turn-key solutions to top subtractive machining manufacturers, which is why we have decided to build these same solutions in the AM world,” stated Gary Bredael, Hartech Group Director of Additive Manufacturing. “We have chosen Velo3D and its end-to-end solution for our federal government customers interested in acquiring advanced Additive Manufacturing technology due to the company’s very high quality and reputation. We will use our top ratings with the federal government to make sure we supply a full Velo3D solution.”

Hartech Group reported that it chose to work with the company because its technology is well suited for complex DoD requirements, especially in the area of supply chain management – particularly with regards to its repeatable outcomes across its fleet of machines. Furthermore, Hartech stated that core Velo3D technology – the non-contact recoater, controls, and the software components of its end-to-end solution – enables advances in engineering design not possible with other solutions.

Benny Buller, CEO and founder, Velo3D added, “It’s no secret that the federal government can be slow-moving and difficult to navigate for newcomers, but Hartech’s background and capabilities will help us grow our presence with these customers so they can leverage the benefits of advanced Additive Manufacturing. In the short time that we’ve officially partnered together, there has already been extensive interest from Hartech’s contacts in the federal government – and we’re just getting started.”
