Velo3D has formed a nationwide partnership with GoEngineer for its additive manufacturing systems. GoEngineer will operate as an extension of Velo3D, providing dedicated resources to provide education, sales and service support for Velo3D’s SupportFree technology, Flow pre-print software, Sapphire metal AM printer, and Assure quality assurance and control system.
GoEngineer will be Velo3D’s largest partner in the U.S., while existing sales networks and direct purchase opportunities from Velo3D remain in place. With more than 35 years of experience and thousands of customers in high tech, medical, machine design, energy and other industries, GoEngineer provides a variety of design solutions, including CAD, PLM and 3D printers.
“We are pleased to partner with Velo3D to help manufacturing companies across the U.S. produce mission-critical parts for industrial use,” says Ken Clayton, CEO of GoEngineer. “Velo3D delivers breakthrough SupportFree technology for the design and manufacturing of metal parts that are not hindered by geometric constraints nor compromised by part quality. Metal additive manufacturing is an important piece to GoEngineer’s portfolio and we are excited to help our customers differentiate themselves even more.”
GoEngineer has strong expertise in additive design solutions. “I see them as a strategic and invaluable partner in educating customers about the opportunity our technology brings to design and manufacturing,” says Benny Buller, founder and CEO of Velo3D. “Together, we will help end-users build what they want without the constraints of yesterday’s standards. Design freedom, agile production and quality assurance are requirements that Velo3D is uniquely positioned to meet.”
Velo3D is known for enabling geometric freedom through its SupportFree process, which reduces the consideration of support structures for complex passageways, shallow overhangs and low angles. Coupled with its non-contact recoater, Velo3D’s printing process can create the intricate cooling passageways and fuel delivery channels needed to achieve high-output fluid transmission and electrical power.
Can we achieve something like a wartime transition to ventilator production, or will the response need to look different from this?
The COVID-19 outbreak has brought both setbacks and opportunities for American manufacturing. 3D printing companies share their stories.
3D printing and robots enable one another. We miss the possibilities of one if we do not consider the other. The combination includes AM for end effectors, robots for 3D printing parts, and different modes of metal and plastic production.
