3DEO Ships 150,000 Production Parts, Breaking Ground in Metal Additive Manufacturing

Los Angeles, CA: June 9, 2020. 3DEO, a metal 3D printing technology company has shipped 150 thousand production parts for end-use applications. This represents a significant milestone for the company, which was founded in 2016 specifically to compete in high-volume metal manufacturing markets against conventional manufacturing techniques like CNC machining and metal injection molding.

According to Matt Sand, 3DEO’s President, “150 thousand parts is a terrific milestone for 3DEO. It validates our patented technology, our unique business model, and our mission to break metal additive manufacturing (AM) into high-volume production. Today, we routinely win bids against traditional manufacturing because of our competitive cost structure and material performance.”

3DEO Achieves ISO 9001:2015 with Best-In-Class Process Control

3DEO, a metal 3D printing company based in Los Los Angeles, California, has received ISO 9001:2015 certification in order to further the commercialization of its technology.

Matt Petros, 3DEO’s CEO, commented, “The ISO 9001 certification is a terrific milestone for 3DEO. A strong quality management system is the backbone of any world-class production line. 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 Press Release: 3DEO Posts Triple Digit Annual Growth with Next Generation Metal 3D Printing

Posted by 3DEO on May 4, 2020 5:24:32 PM
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.

What you need to know about the FDA’s guidelines for 3D-printed medical devices

Posted by 3DEO on May 23, 2018 12:12:58 PM

No matter how you slice it, the spike in industry-wide 3D printing revenues over the past 5 years has been impressive. A close look at that growth, however, reveals something interesting: it’s been disproportionately driven a small handful of vertical markets. Of these select markets, none has been as influential as MedTech. Metal-based additive manufacturing (AM), in particular, has proven to be perfectly suited to meet a number of needs in medical and dental device production.

Intro to Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes - Material Jetting

Posted by 3DEO on Mar 27, 2018 9:37:52 AM

Overview of Material Jetting in Metal 3D Printing

Material Jetting is relatively new and similar to binder jetting, with one key difference -- instead of a binder being jetted through the printhead, a metallic material is jetted. This material is jetted onto the build tray directly using either a continuous jetting or Drop on Demand (DOD) process. The jetted metal is deposited on the build tray in the cross section of the part for that layer. This process continues as it builds up layer after layer. The resulting part still needs to be sintered in a furnace to achieve final part density. Previously, material jetting was limited to plastics and polymers, but recent advances have seen new companies attempting to commercialize the process for metals. XJet currently shows the most promise for material jetting with its patented NanoParticle Jetting technology and recently shipped its first commercial machine to a customer.

Metal 3D Printing Processes - Directed Energy Deposition (DED)

Posted by 3DEO on Mar 22, 2018 4:00:02 PM

Overview of Directed Energy Deposition in Metal AM

Directed Energy Deposition (DED) is an additive manufacturing process where metal wire or powder is combined with an energy source to deposit material onto a build tray or an existing part directly. Parts chosen for DED are typically large without the need for tight tolerances. DED methods are capable of building very large parts and are popular because of the rapid deposition speed. Because it closely resembles welding, DED is commonly used to repair and maintain existing parts. DED machines usually mount a nozzle on a multi-axis arm, which then deposits the metal feedstock to the surface. When used with 5 or 6 axis machines, the material can be deposited from nearly any angle and is melted upon deposition with a laser or electron beam. This process means DED can be used to build objects very quickly and is only limited in size by the reach of the robotic arm.

Guide to Metal 3D Printing Processes

The additive part of the name comes from adding layer upon layer to create the part, as opposed to subtractive technologies such as CNC machining which mill and grind away material to reach a final part. How these additive layers are formed and the parts are created is what separates the different additive manufacturing technologies.
