Diversified Manufacturing Technologies, LLC (DMT) has added a state-of-the-art Markforged Mark Two printer to its lineup of goods and services available to their customers.The Mark Two is an industry first, fiber filament 3-D printer that has the ability to make parts as strong as aluminum 6061. It prints in nylon, filling each part with close-packed reinforcement in continuous carbon fiber, Kevlar, or fiberglass. “These parts are extremely lightweight and durable,” said Diversified Manufacturing Technologies’ president, Andrew Tordanato. “With our ability to make fully functional parts right off the printer, we’re able to reduce project build times by 80%, and material and cost by 50%.”
DMT provides parts, equipment, and services to manufacturing companies, enabling them to fulfill orders and accept jobs that the organizations may not have had the resources to accept in the past. They offer years of manufacturing experience along with extensive knowledge in additive manufacturing. “We understand how to simplify and make the best use of our machines and our processes in order to drive down prices while providing parts at a fast rate. The fact that we can make parts the right way the first time is a definite positive also,” Tordanato said.
With equipment like the Mark Two, DMT has broadened what it offers its customers. There are only a select number of these printers in use today. “[DMT] offers the services of this printer to companies who can’t or don’t want to invest in a printer to complete just one or two projects,” Tordanato explained. “We can now offer quick-turnaround prototypes that fully function, and build parts to replace ones currently made with conventional machining methods that are extremely heavy and have a long lead time. We can now help customers who currently use carbon fiber and fiberglass as their main focus area and material choice.”
