GoEngineer to Exclusively Distribute Velo3D Products in U.S.
Velo3D and GoEngineer have signed a partnership that will make GoEngineer Velo3D’s largest distributor in the U.S.
Velo3D has formed a U.S.-wide distribution partnership with GoEngineer. GoEngineer will operate as an extension of Velo3D, dedicating resources to educate designers about SupportFree technology, as well as sales and service expertise supporting Velo3D’s complete portfolio — including Flow pre-print software, the Sapphire metal AM printer and the Assure quality assurance and control system.
GoEngineer will be Velo3D’s largest distributor in the United States, although Velo3D’s existing sales networks and direct purchase opportunities will remain in place.
“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 gained the trust of thousands of customers with their rich expertise in additive design solutions,” states Benny Buller, founder and CEO of Velo3D. “I see them as a strategic and invaluable partner in educating customers about the opportunity our technology brings to design and manufacturing. 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 well-known for enabling geometric freedom through its patented SupportFree process, which reduces the need for 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.
Analyzing directed energy deposition and powder-bed fusion provides a thorough understanding of the extra machining necessary for a “near net shape” versus a “net shape” manufacturing process.
A hybrid system combining metal 3D printing with machining gives the Marine Corps perhaps its most effective resource yet for obtaining needed hardware in the field. It also offers an extreme version of the experience a machine shop might have in adding metal AM to its capabilities.
Additive manufacturing provides new ways of making medical implants, but its impact is greater than this. How 3D printing is changing medical manufacturing and improving patient outcomes.
