3DEO in the News: 3D Printing News Brief: March 1, 2019

Posted by 3DEO on Mar 6, 2019 10:30:06 AM

Metal 3D printing company 3DEO, Inc., based in Los Angeles and founded in 2016, grew a lot last year, having used its patented Intelligent Layering Technology to 3D print and ship over 30,000 paid parts to customers in multiple industries in 2018. It appears that this growth isn’t slowing down either, as the company is more than doubling its production capacity this quarter to meet customer demand with its proprietary metal 3D printers. It’s only the first day of March, and 3DEO has already locked down two more customer production orders that are scheduled for delivery this year, one for 24,000 pieces and another for 28,000.

3DEO in the News: 3D Printing: This Time the Hype Is (Mostly) Real

Posted by 3DEO on Mar 4, 2019 8:41:00 AM

Back in 2012, there were a lot of inflated expectations regarding the role that metal 3D printing would soon play in medical device manufacturing. Matt Sand is a product of that hype cycle because it was around that time that he, as an entrepreneur, started getting excited about the possibilities of 3D printing. Today, Sand is a co-founder and president of 3DEO.

On-Demand 3D Printing Could Change Manufacturing As We Know It

Posted by 3DEO on Feb 19, 2019 11:02:36 AM

By extending the boundaries of the on-demand production concept, additive manufacturing is changing supply chains in many industries.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of 3D printing over conventional techniques is flexibility. Because unit quantity, complexity, and labor inputs account for a relatively small percentage of final part cost, 3D printing facilities—especially in production—play by a different set of rules. Thanks to its flexibility, additive manufacturing can be reactive to business cases in a way that traditional methods just can’t. The adaptive, on-demand production of parts has the potential to reshape the way many manufacturers do business.

3DEO in the News: Integrating the Power of AM Into Injection Molding

Posted by 3DEO on Feb 12, 2019 10:04:36 AM

3D printing has often been portrayed as a natural complement to injection molding. After all, injection molding is a high-leverage manufacturing process where extremely high tooling costs are offset by low unit costs at high volumes. Additive manufacturing (AM), particularly where metals are concerned, has presented the balancing value proposition with tooling and setup costs representing a relatively low figure in comparison to the steep per-part variable costs. However, innovation in these two fields has presented an intriguing combination of the technologies: using AM technology to produce molds and mold inserts.

Metal 3D-Printed Surgical Instruments: Predictions for the Future

Posted by 3DEO on Jan 31, 2019 8:46:00 AM

Few categories of manufactured goods are as well-suited to 3D printing’s strength as surgical devices. The coming years will prove that clearly.

The swift and continuous improvement of 3D printing systems over the past few years has brought the technology into the mainstream like never before. Technical improvements in printers themselves and growing public awareness have fed off one another to facilitate rising adoption rates across all sectors. As more industries recognize the potential of additive manufacturing to redefine their processes, 3D printing’s share of the total manufacturing market should continue to swell. Still—and this applies particularly to metal AM—the technique is a better fit for some applications than others.

3D Printing in the Medical Technology Industry: An Economic Case

Posted by 3DEO on Jan 30, 2019 1:31:09 PM

A close look at the variables that determine final part cost reveals that additive manufacturing can be an efficient solution for many medtech applications—but only if approached correctly.

3D printing has left behind its days as an obscure, fledgling technology of dubious real-world value. In nearly all corners of the modern manufacturing environment, additive manufacturing (AM) is now recognized as a powerful manufacturing technology, particularly when it comes to complex designs and streamlining the supply chain. Still, the perception lingers that 3D printing is impractical for most companies, at least from a cost perspective.
