STS Additive Partners with Big Systems & Markforged
STS Additive Manufacturing, a division of STS Technical Design, announced in an official release that it has joined forces with Big Systems and Markforged to become one of the very first companies in the United States to utilize the Markforged Metal X 3D Printer. Using the 3D printer, STS Additive Manufacturing will deliver metal and composite additive manufacturing services.
Big Systems, which is already one of the nation’s leading providers of 3D printers, will partner with STS Additive Manufacturing and use the Markforged Metal X printer as a way to demonstrate the printer’s robust capabilities to its ever-growing, global client base. Having this demo capability creates a unique opportunity for Big Systems to help make metal 3D printing a mainstream staple throughout the manufacturing industry.
Markforged’s Metal X 3D Printer aims to reinvent manufacturing and is known to be one of the most accessible 3D metal printers, one that is revolutionized by its award-winning hardware, design and unmatched results.
Speaking about the using the Markforged Metal X printer, Rich Ciampa, Director of Design Services and Additive Manufacturing for STS Technical Design said, “The Markforged Metal X printer is worth getting excited about. Our customers can initially have their parts printed in 17-4PH stainless steel, with H-13 tool steel and other materials coming online in the months ahead. What’s even more exciting is that this new partnership with Big Systems and Markforged allows STS Additive Manufacturing to become one of the first companies in America to offer this new technology on a large scale.”
“To be able to present the amazing metal 3D printing capabilities on the new Markforged Metal X 3D printer to our customers is an opportunity too good to pass up,” stated Joe Jones, President and Owner of Big Systems. “We’ve been able to offer 3D printing solutions for years now, and to be able to add metal printing into the mix, particularly metal 3D printing with superior quality at affordable prices, yeah, I’d say this is a complete game-changer.”
In addition to adding metal 3D printing capabilities via the Markforged Metal X printer, STS Additive Manufacturing will also begin to implement robust, 3D composite printing services via a recently acquired Markforged Mark Two printer.
