During an Additive Industries partnership event at the Formula 1 race in Austin, Texas, metal additive manufacturing company 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing confirmed the first order of a MetalFab1 system to produce large and high quality parts at the highest productivity. The system will enable 3rd Dimension to build big parts in a large symmetrical build volume.

“Our client base demands large quantities of high-quality products,” says said Bob Markley, president and CEO of 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing Co. “As we have moved into full-scale production, we have realized the need for drastically faster additive equipment and the Additive Industries four-laser system provides the solution our customers need. I have looked at many additive solutions to add to our existing equipment and have not only been impressed with the technical prowess of Additive Industries, but also their innovative and modular solution. With this machine, we can add capacity as needed as well as ensure that all of the machines are of the same specification.”

“3rd Dimension understands how to do series production with additive manufacturing and integrates subtractive processes to create the highest quality parts for automotive, aerospace and consumer applications,” says Shane Collins, general manager of Additive Industries North America. “This combination is essential to drive this technology forward. Moreover, 3rd Dimension, like Additive Industries, is collaborating closely with its customers to continuously improve the products. That makes a great fit between both our companies.”
