Co-founder and President Matt Sand sees a big uptick in high-volume orders for 3D-printed metal parts.

 

"There's a big restructuring with the supply chain right now, and it plays into our favor," says Sand, one of 3DEO's three co-founders. "We're seeing from our existing customers more orders and a lot of interest in manufacturing in the U.S."

It follows that the company is moving from 10,000 square feet into a 60,000-square-foot manufacturing space that will increase capacity by a factor of 10, says Sand. The move will be complete by August 2020.

Sand says 3D printing caught him "hook, line, and sinker" before 3DEO's beginnings. "I got my MBA from UCLA, so I'm kind of the business guy," he says. "I met my two partners when they were halfway through their PhDs at the University of Southern California."

3DEO in the News: 3DEO Achieves ISO 9001:2015 for quality management systems

Posted by 3DEO on May 22, 2020 2:58:25 PM

“The ISO 9001 certification is a terrific milestone for 3DEO. A strong quality management system is the backbone of any world-class production line,” commented Matt Petros, CEO of 3DEO. “The ISO certification marks an important step in realizing 3DEO’s long-term vision of leveraging next-generation technologies to build the world’s highest quality, data-driven factory of the future. In the previous generation of manufacturing, spot checks and random sampling were best of class. 3DEO is building a dynamic production line with real-time streaming data that allows ongoing monitoring and end-to-end closed-loop feedback. For 3DEO, ISO is the starting point of what we expect to become the next generation of manufacturing.”

3DEO Posts Triple Digit Annual Growth with Next Generation Metal 3D Printing

Los Angeles, CA: May 5, 2020. 3DEO started as a 3D printing company with its revolutionary metal 3D printing technology, Intelligent Layering®, at the core. But in order to compete in high-volume traditional manufacturing, the company evolved into a vertically integrated, next generation factory. This new business model meant manufacturers could gain the cost savings, design freedom, and manufacturing flexibility they need to compete – without having to shell out millions of dollars for a metal 3D printer and the supporting infrastructure.

As evidenced by 3DEO’s success metrics for 2019, this paradigm shift could be a forerunner to building the factory of the future.

3DEO in the News: Someday My Prints Will Come: Additive Manufacturing Insights

Posted by 3DEO on Mar 23, 2020 10:01:42 AM

The industry is finally becoming comfortable with the fundamental differences of metal AM, especially processes like DMLS. Everyone using metal 3D printing in orthopedic manufacturing pretty much uses DMLS. Because that process has been around for 30 years, a great deal of research has gone into establishing and proving process and part quality. A decade ago it was more like the wild west; there was no official voice in the FDA weighing in. Back then the mindset was basically “Who wants to be the first victim to have metal 3D printed hip implanted?”

Now the opinion of “I don’t want anything except a metal 3D printed hip implanted, it’s completely customized to my body” is beginning to prevail. That shift has been happening over the last decade. Designers see metal AM as another tool in the toolkit. They’re happy to design for it and the trepidation about using metal 3D printing has mostly faded.

3DEO in the News: Is Metal Additive Manufacturing for You?

Posted by 3DEO on Mar 13, 2020 10:46:59 AM

Are you interested in high-volume-production metal additive manufacturing (AM)? If so, first and foremost you must develop a deep understanding of the total cost per part and how it breaks down. Without this understanding, it will be impossible to develop winning business cases that set up you for success. Rather, unexpected costs and surprises run the risk of disappointing you months or years down the road. By understanding this up front, you can develop lasting applications that can outcompete traditional manufacturing.

The three main types of costs can be found in pre-printing, printing, and post-processing/post-printing. Only 10% of the cost comes from pre-printing and 40% from printing. And, what most people find astonishing is that in today's world of metal 3D printing, as much as 50% of the cost comes from post-processing.
