Integrated 3D™ Manufacturing (I3DMFG™), pioneers in 3D printing, opened its new headquarters in The Dalles, OR. The company manufactures complex metal products in a repeatable, reliable manufacturing process serving industrial applications in the aerospace, UAV, clean energy, automotive and medical markets.
I3DMFG™ is the right solution for small to medium production runs for customers who may have never dreamed that intricate designs utilizing metals could be manufactured. The I3DMFG™ process and manufacturing methodology is for production runs that demand structural integrity as well as complex design requirements. I3DMFG™ delivers complex, high value products with precision and accuracy never achieved before.
The company’s technology has an impact not only on manufacturing but also on design philosophy, labor allocation and business strategies. Their Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) manufacturing process minimizes waste and cost and also presents an opportunity to enable manufacturing jobs to return to the U.S. “Our vision is to bring jobs, ingenuity and manufacturing back to the United States,” said Erin Stone, CEO. “Our manufacturing capability enables U.S. companies to manufacture their complex parts in a timely and price competitive way. There is less reliance on offshore manufacturing which brings back jobs to the U.S. and protects valuable intellectual property.”
The company embraces a “Design is Manufacturing” philosophy which enables the freedom to design products without traditional manufacturing constraints. “If you can dream it, we can make it,” says Stone. Designers are free to pursue design parameters where many manufacturing rules can be put aside. I3DMFG™ enables designers to produce products with complex geometries like lattice patterns used in medical procedures to replace knees, hips or even parts of a human spine.
The company’s new headquarters employs 5 with plans to employ 7 by the end of 2014. I3DMFG™ headquarters are located at 3525 “C” Crates Way, The Dalles, Oregon and their satellite office is at 500 Bond Street, Bend, Oregon.
