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 In the News: Additive Manufacturing Gears Up for Mainstream Production

Posted by 3DEO on Mar 9, 2020 5:11:30 PM

Is additive manufacturing ready for mainstream production, or does it remain mostly a method for producing prototypes and spare parts? This is the question that faced a panel of experts at the Pacific Design and Manufacturing show in Anaheim last month.

What are Your Options for Improved Surface Finishes After 3D Printing?

Posted by 3DEO on Jan 8, 2020 9:38:16 AM

As you may or may not know, the Intelligent Layering, a proprietary technology developed by 3DEO, provides the best as-printed surface finish in metal 3D printing. Customers have compared our surface finish to a "very nice cast finish" in that it's matte silver and silky smooth. While it's good enough in the as-printed state for many applications, there are also a number of options to improve or change the surface post print.

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: Here's 5 Metal 3D Printing Success Stories

Posted by 3DEO on Sep 24, 2018 10:04:37 AM

Given the optimism that metal AM will continue to grow in relevance for series production, it's natural to focus on future potential and skim over the present. However, that forward-looking mindset obscures the exciting developments already taking place in 3D metal printing. The technology as a tool to be used in full production runs is not some distant possibility. It's already here. 3DEO's president Matt Sand details five current examples of how metal AM is changing manufacturing at scale.

3DEO in the News: Comparing Metal Parts Manufacturing Methods

Posted by 3DEO on Sep 24, 2018 10:01:38 AM

Metal fabrication does not lack for depth as an industry. No fewer than 6 distinct — and commonly used — techniques exist for the manufacture of metal pieces and parts in 2018. Each can be considered the “best” option given certain conditions. For this reason, it’s often tough for an organization looking to outsource a specific production run of components to decide just which method is right for them. The list of options is long, and it’s growing more nuanced by the day.

Success Stories in Production Metal 3D Printing

Posted by 3DEO on Jul 12, 2018 8:47:19 PM

These five applications are proving that metal AM has a place in high volume production—and they’re just the tip of the iceberg.


Given all the industry optimism that metal AM will continue to grow in relevance for series production, it’s natural to focus on future potential and skim over the present. That forward-looking mindset, however, sometimes obscures the exciting developments that are already taking place in the world of 3D metal printing. The advent of the technology as a tool to be used in full production runs is not some distant possibility. It’s already here. Here are the five best current examples of how metal AM is changing manufacturing at scale.
