Vertex chooses VELO3D to meet the growing demand for AM »3dpbm
Making vertices, a Cincinnati-based company providing CNC machining and manufacturing services from development to production, has selected VELO3D to help meet the growing demand for “impossible” 3D printed metal parts.
Vertex was born out of the desire of AM pioneers Greg Morris, Steve Rengers and Tim Warden, formerly of Morris Technologies, to leverage their manufacturing experience and cutting edge technology to help companies solve some of their problems. the most difficult. Vertex is AS9100, ISO13485 and ITAR registered and certified.
“With unique technology providing the ability to create production parts that would be impractical or impossible using other methods, our new additive manufacturing solution from VELO3D means customers will have even more freedom to design and design. some of the most complex geometries imaginable, ”said Greg Morris, co-founder and CEO, Vertex Manufacturing. “This is the essence of why Steve, Tim and I started Vertex Manufacturing – to help customers take advantage of the most advanced manufacturing technologies and push the boundaries of what is possible.”
Where Morris Technologies primarily focused on prototyping use cases, Vertex was created with a mission to help customers who need advanced manufacturing solutions for development and production programs. They offer a range of services including advanced multi-axis CNC machining, additive manufacturing, rapid castings and final inspection of manufactured parts.
“When I first founded VELO3D, I was inspired by the Vertex team and tried to get them to work with us, but we were too early and had not yet proven our place on the market, ”said Benny Buller, founder and CEO of VELO3D. . “Their decision to work with us today is a testament to the real and transformational capabilities that VELO3D brings to the metal fabrication industry. “
Vertex will take delivery of its first full-stack VELO3D Sapphire solution later this month, which will be configured to print metal parts in Inconel 718 (PDF), a nickel-based superalloy known for its superb tensile strength when it is subjected to extreme pressure and heat up. It will be installed alongside other advanced manufacturing systems such as a high-end Makino a61nx CNC machining center. Vertex has announced its intention to add additional VELO3D solutions in the future based on feedback from existing customers who appreciate the benefits in terms of quality, efficiency and productivity.
“The intention is for this first machine to be fully operational by mid-July,” Morris said. “As we move forward, we want to leverage the knowledge and experience of our team to bring products to market or bring them into production to focus more on continuing production programs, regardless of whether they are It is traditional manufacturing, advanced metal additive manufacturing, or a combination of both. “
In March, VELO3D revealed its intention to merge with JAWS Spitfire Acquisition Corporation and become a public company. Earlier this year, VELO3D was named to Fast Company’s 2021 list of the world’s most innovative companies, among the best in the manufacturing category for its profound impact on the 3D printing industry.
