A Digital Manufacturing Partner for Every Business

Yesterday, we made a big announcement.

After spending the better part of the last year qualifying and onboarding new fabrication centers, we are pleased to formally announce that we are now offering CNC Machining and Casting services alongside our 3D Printing service.  In doing so, we have become the “Digital Manufacturing Partner to Every Business.”

What does this mean to you, our customer?

That if you enjoyed the one-stop shopping convenience we previously offered you for additive manufacturing, you will love getting those same benefits from our comprehensive machining and casting services.  Instead of having to dial up dozens of companies in search of a solution that might call for any of those technologies, you can now submit a single RFQ and know that 99.9% of the time you’re going to get a great quote on the program that leverages the strength of 3Diligent’s thousands of fabrication options to ensure you’re getting the best solution to your fabrication need.

Beyond providing you the added convenience of one-stop shopping for your digital and rapid manufacturing needs, these expanded capabilities also enhance our ability to support your company’s needs from prototyping through to production.  At 3Diligent, we are very excited about the growing number of production 3D Printing programs we are supporting.  Advancements in 3D Printing speed, reliability and material science are making it a viable option for an increasing number of programs.  However, there are times when machining or casting are a better option for the application at hand, especially at higher volumes.

Now, for those of you who have been regular users of our service, you know that we have been quietly offering Machining and Casting for some time.  We’ve been refining these capabilities in semi-stealth mode.  Until we had all the pieces in place, we didn’t want to announce that we were ready for primetime.

But now we are.

Our service now offers several hundred CNC machines of all flavors, including milling, turning, EDM, laser cutting, and waterjet cutting.  Our casting service now services materials including an incredible range of urethanes, silicone, and metals.

And I’m pleased to report that the reviews have been outstanding.  From casting to machining, our customers have reported the highest levels of satisfaction with our world-class project management and the timeliness and workmanship of our fabrication centers.  You can read a few of them here in our press release.

If you have a program that might call for machining or casting, I strongly encourage you to submit an RFQ at www.3Diligent.com.  I think you’ll be impressed!

3Diligent Expands Digital Manufacturing Services with Addition of Comprehensive Machining and Casting Services

Company adopts “Digital Manufacturing Partner for Every Business” tagline to reflect growing and evolving business

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 11, 2018 – 3Diligent Corporation, a comprehensive digital manufacturing service provider, today announced it has completed the build out of a range of machining and casting manufacturing services. The company, which has been known for developing the most comprehensive range of 3D Printing services in the industry, is now a leader in the full range of digital manufacturing capabilities.

The move was made to address the needs of companies who sought to use 3Diligent’s fabrication network, procurement expertise, and online portal beyond the scope of its 3D Printing offering.  Especially in situations where 3D Printing, CNC Machining, or Casting are all viable options, 3Diligent’s offering of each service provides customers a single convenient interface to seamlessly access these competing technologies.  Further, 3Diligent’s expansion into these offerings allows it to more readily support customers seeking larger volumes and materials that aren’t currently served by 3D Printing.

Complete Casting and Machining Services

In the past year, 3Diligent has placed an increased emphasis on building out its machining and casting network in addition to its 3D Printing service.

Machining is the process of creating a part by removing material from a block of raw stock.  3Diligent now offers a complete range of machining services including milling, turning, electro discharge machining, water jetting and laser cutting.

Casting is the process of creating a part by pouring material into a defined negative space to create a part.   Casting services include urethane casting, silicone casting and metal casting.

“We strive to be a complete digital manufacturing solution for our customers from prototyping through production.  These new services complement our existing ones and allow us to provide even more convenient one-stop shopping value to our customers,” said Cullen Hilkene, CEO and co-founder of 3Diligent.

In conjunction with the introduction of these offerings, the company has updated its tagline to “The Digital Manufacturing Partner for Every Business.”  Previously referenced as “The 3D Printing Partner for Every Business,” the company changed the tagline to better reflect the broad nature of the work it does for customers.

Resonating with Customers

“We worked with 3Diligent on a urethane casting project. The breadth of materials and services they offered, including flame retardant and color options, made them a great partner on this program,” said Terry Trumbull, VP of Electro-Mech Components, Inc., a provider of components to the aerospace industry. “We were very satisfied with the experience.”

“We used 3Diligent for several custom [machined] parts used in the fabrication of instrumentation control panels,” said John Pendleton, President, Kansas City Valve and Fitting. “Everything arrived on time and to spec, and we saved 30% versus our previous supplier.”

Customers can order parts made from any of the new machining or casting services – or its market leading range of 3D printing options – from the 3Diligent website at  http://www.3diligent.com/.
