3DEO has won the Design Excellence Award for its metal 3D-printed production component in the 2020 Design Excellence Award Competition sponsored by MPIF, the international trade association for metal powder industries.
“We are honored to receive this award of distinction from MPIF," stated Payman Torabi, Ph.D., 3DEO’s co-founder and CTO, in a news release. "It is a terrific accomplishment for 3DEO that highlights the giant leaps we have made over the last 18 months commercializing our technology.”
Torabi described 3D printing as "an incredible modern tool with a lot of advantages. You can’t utilize all its potential powers with an outdated mindset or approach. We as engineers, designers, builders, and innovators need to start rethinking our methods so all of humanity can witness and benefit from a new industrial revolution.”
Added Matt Petros, Ph.D., 3DEO’s CEO: “It is particularly exciting to me that the winning component is a high-volume production part, not a one-off prototype. We had to out-compete CNC machining to win the production order, and we did that with a lower piece price and the ability to seamlessly scale quantities into very high volumes. It was a ‘win-win’ for both 3DEO and our customer.”
Rather than selling printers, 3DEO sells 3D-printed metal parts and offers customers a “one-stop-shop” for production-quality metal components.
“With production customers in diverse industries and applications such as aerospace, defense, medical devices, and consumer products, 3DEO is well on its way to realizing its vision to become a world-class metal parts supplier,” added Petros. “The design award for such a high-volume production component is a terrific example of the tangible progress we are making. Thank you to MPIF for the recognition, and most importantly thank you to our customers for working side-by-side with us to change the world of manufacturing together.”
