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 like 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.”
