Company’s Breadth of 3D Printing, Machining, Casting and Injection Molding Technologies Enable On-Demand Custom-Part Fulfillment Globally

El Segundo, Calif.—April 29, 2019—3Diligent announced today it has now qualified and networked digital-manufacturing facilities on six continents. Its network of nearly 250 contract manufacturing partners spans more than a dozen countries and 1,200 machines.

This milestone means 3Diligent is able to offer faster and more cost-effective support to customers seeking a single partner for their global custom-part manufacturing needs. Through its dynamic utilization of regional manufacturing facilities near the final delivery address, 3Diligent can cut down on delivery time and shipping costs. Perhaps more importantly for large businesses, 3Diligent can also provide a single platform through which to track and manage digital-manufacturing activity across the enterprise.

“The promise and power of digital manufacturing—especially 3D printing—lies in its ability to quickly and easily get the same part made in different places using the same 3D design file,” said 3Diligent CEO, Cullen Hilkene. “We are proud to have qualified and networked expert manufacturing partners around the world who are capable of making this vision of the future a reality.”

The trend toward distributed digital manufacturing is accelerating as more companies consider Computer Aided Design (CAD) driven technologies such as 3D printing and CNC machining to enable on-demand spare parts and even production runs. The supply web is emerging as a way to utilize these digital-manufacturing technologies to increase agility and flexibility within a company’s supply chain.

“3Diligent provides companies a partner and ready-made fabrication network to deliver around the globe for their customers and their own internal operations,” said Hilkene. “This powerful combination of cutting-edge equipment, material breadth, geographic coverage, and consistent quality makes 3Diligent a category of one among distributed digital-manufacturing companies.”

Companies can use the 3Diligent RFQ process to access its nearly 30 available manufacturing processes, including 3D printing (additive manufacturing), machining, casting, and injection molding.

3Diligent has delivered digital-manufacturing services from prototype through production for a wide variety of industries including industrial products, automotive, medical device, aerospace, energy, and design firms. A notable recent project involved the 3D printing of unique aluminum curtain wall nodes for Walters & Wolf to help deliver the iconic exterior look and feel of the upcoming Rainier Square Tower in Seattle.
