Desktop Metal Accelerates its Growth Trajectory Within Rapidly Growing Additive Manufacturing Market

Desktop Metal | August 27, 2020

Desktop Metal, Inc. a leader in mass production and turnkey additive manufacturing solutions, announced today it will become a publicly listed company in order to accelerate its growth trajectory within the rapidly growing additive manufacturing market and capitalize on the strong secular tailwinds supporting the reshoring of manufacturing and supply chain flexibility. The Company has signed a definitive business combination agreement with Trine Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company led by Leo Hindery, Jr. and HPS Investment Partners, a global credit investment firm with over $60 billion in assets under management. Upon closing of the transaction, the combined operating company will be named Desktop Metal, Inc. and will continue to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange and trade under the ticker symbol “DM.” The additive manufacturing industry grew at a 20 percent annual compound rate between 2006 and 2016 before accelerating to 25 percent compound annual growth over the last 3 years, a rate that is expected to continue over the next decade as the market surges from $12 billion in 2019 to an estimated $146 billion in 2030. This market inflection is being driven by a shift in applications from design prototyping and tooling to mass production of end-use parts, enabled by the emergence of what Desktop Metal refers to as “Additive Manufacturing 2.0,” a wave of next-generation additive manufacturing technologies that unlock throughput, repeatability, and competitive part costs. These solutions feature key innovations across printers, materials, and software and pull additive manufacturing into direct competition with conventional processes used to manufacture $12 trillion in goods annually.

Hexagon and ETQ Connect Quality Solutions to Help Manufacturers Bring Superior Products to Market Faster and Protect Brand Reputation

Hexagon | October 11, 2021

Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, a global leader in sensor, software, and autonomous technologies, and ETQ, a leading quality management system (QMS) provider, have announced a partnership to assure quality from concept to customer, enabling improved data-driven decision making throughout the entire process, producing better, more consistent products in less time and with less resource and enabling progressive smart manufacturing strategies. The partnership connects Hexagon’s vendor-agnostic inspection and measurement solutions with ETQ’s stakeholder-connecting QMS to produce a rich digital thread that automatically captures quality control and assurance processes that are currently performed manually. By applying machine learning and artificial intelligence throughout design, production, customer service and support the cloud platform also helps users to rapidly identify and analyze issues by producing actionable insights. Manufacturers in a range of industries automotive, life sciences, heavy manufacturing and beyond – will derive immediate value from the integrated data thanks to higher product quality and fewer defects, scrap, rework or recalls. As the Smart Manufacturing environment evolves, this level of data-driven automation and integration will deliver the ability to maximize the quality and efficiency of the complete manufacturing lifecycle and create the foundation for autonomous manufacturing and true digital transformation. Rob Gremley, CEO of ETQ Paolo Guglielmini, President of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, said: “Consumers perceive quality based on their experience. It is the manufacturer’s brand reputation, it can add significant value to a product, and it combines every aspect of the product lifecycle. Our customers trust our solutions to connect the shop floor to the top floor with pervasive quality assurance, and this new addition to our ecosystem will further support their journey towards Industry 4.0.” An example of how the partnership will benefit customers today is in resolving a nonconformance incident, leveraging inspection and measurement data collected and managed by Hexagon’s Q-DAS and eMMA software solutions with full traceability and best in class Statistical Quality Control (SQC) and Analytics, and integrated with ETQ Reliance’s QMS. Hexagon’s existing quality control solutions can identify a nonconformance from, for example, the Production Part Approval Process, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, or customer feedback, at which point the digital connection between that manufacturing solution and the ETQ QMS will autonomously generate a nonconformance report (NCR) without human intervention. Typically, the action to halt or modify production of the faulty product is handled manually or with limited technological help, but with a combined Hexagon-ETQ generated NCR solution, a corrective action can be automatically triggered in production and the information simultaneously updated in the company’s enterprise resource planning system to put the affected product batch on hold. This prevents the release and potential negative consequences of defects, efficiently digitizing the quality management process and providing an unprecedented degree of integration across the manufacturing lifecycle and support smart manufacturing strategies and aspirations. About Hexagon Hexagon is a global leader in sensor, software and autonomous solutions. We are putting data to work to boost efficiency, productivity, and quality across industrial, manufacturing, infrastructure, safety, and mobility applications. Our technologies are shaping urban and production ecosystems to become increasingly connected and autonomous – ensuring a scalable, sustainable future. About ETQ ETQ is the leading provider of quality, EHS and compliance management software, trusted by the world’s strongest brands. Nearly 600 global companies, spanning industries including pharmaceuticals, electronics, heavy industry, food and beverage, and medical devices, use ETQ to secure positive brand reputations, deliver higher levels of customer loyalty and enhance profitability.

Global Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) Growth Opportunities

ReportLinker | November 23, 2021

PPG created the ramp seals via additive manufacturing using a patented ambient reactive extrusion (ARE) technology called PPG ARE that results in easy-to-install parts made from PPG’s production qualified aerospace sealant. The 3D-printing process enables PPG to customize the design of various parts, such as ramp seals, for continuous process improvement while increasing sustainability. Conventional manufacturing processes involve subtractive manufacturing, which requires removal of excess materials to create the desired part. With additive manufacturing, the exact amount of material is deposited in the precise layout and design of the part, thereby reducing waste, saving energy, eliminating the rework of a manually created product and shortening the time required to bring the product to market. “With additive manufacturing, we’ve automated a manual process for producing these ramp seals,By creating shelf-stable parts that are quick to install, we are able to save our customers significant production time and a cost savings of more than 30% compared to current manufacturing processes.” Cindy Kutchko, PPG senior group leader, additive manufacturing, aerospace PPG is working with Cosine Additive to expand PPG ARE large-scale 3D printing capabilities. The first 3D printer using PPG ARE technology for commercial applications has been installed at PPG’s Application Support Center (ASC) in Los Angeles. PPG’s position as a global paint, coatings and specialty materials provider combined with the size, speed and accuracy of the PPG ARE thermoset technology in these 3D printers enable the creation of durable and functional parts that were previously difficult to produce. “These 3D printed components are a game-changer for the C-130J Super Hercules,” said Rod McLean, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin’s Air Mobility & Maritime Missions line of business. “PPG’s ARE technology is an outstanding example of how manufacturing innovation and evolution combine to deliver affordable, customized and durable components for our operators.” PPG’s global aerospace business offers coatings, sealants, adhesives, transparencies, packaging and application systems, and transparent armor, as well as chemical management and other services.
