Methods 3D, a subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools, is opening seven additive manufacturing laboratories across the United States. The labs are staffed by teams of sales, application engineers and service technicians, and are located in Methods Machine Tools’ technology centers in Sudbury, Massachusetts; Detroit, Michigan; Charlotte, North Carolina; Chicago, Illinois; Phoenix, Arizona; San Francisco, California; and Los Angeles, California.

Each of the additive manufacturing labs is outfitted with 18 printers including direct metal printing (DMP), select laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA) and Multi-Jet models running 14 different materials. A full complement of postprocessing equipment such as EDM, CNC machining, automation and inspection is also onsite and each location is fully staffed by a team of sales, application engineers and service technicians.

“Our new additive labs are ideal for manufacturing professionals to consult our experts and explore ways to design and produce their components using the latest 3D technology integrated with conventional machining, automation and more,” says James Hanson, chief operating officer for Methods 3D. “Engineers have been bringing their application challenges to us and we have been working with them to implement this technology into their manufacturing operations.”
