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.”
