Type A Machines has entered into a contract manufacturing relationship with BriteLab for the production of its Series 1 3D printer, an industrial-grade fused-filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printer. BriteLab provides collaboration-based product lifecycle focused manufacturing solutions from its facility in San Jose, California. The Type A Machines 3D printer product line will benefit from BriteLab OEM management, factory automation, product engineering and high-volume expertise, the companies say.

“Manufacturing in the U.S. was an important consideration in our selection of an OEM partner," says Andrew Rutter, Type A Machines founder and CEO. "While it’s critical we remain responsive to the market, and protect our intellectual property, we also feel an obligation to improve our local jobs economy. We’re pleased BriteLab was able to meet all of our requirements.”

As part of the on-going relationship, BriteLab will provide design for manufacturing (DFM), supply chain management (SCM) and new product introduction (NPI) services for the Type A Machines Series 1 product line.
