Directed Manufacturing, Inc. (DMI) Acquires Renishaw AM250

Directed Manufacturing, Inc. (DMI), a leading 3D printing rapid manufacturing company for production of plastic and metal parts, components and assemblies, today announced its delivery of a Renishaw AM250 to Pflugerville, TX. The selective laser melting system purchase comes in direct response to demand for design engineers looking to source production metal parts while reducing production lead times and costs.

"We're pleased to add this system to our equipment list and expand our capacity to deliver direct metal part manufacturing services," said Directed Manufacturing Inc, DMI CEO Alex Fima. "We thoroughly researched our options and selected the Renishaw AM250 due to its reputation for building precision Titanium prototypes and parts."

DMI's direct digital manufacturing facility in Texas supplies production metal parts and complex geometric components to the medical, industrial, aerospace and defense industries. The company strives to positively impact the design process, shorten product development cycles and streamline the manufacturing of product, tools and patterns.

The Renishaw AM250 is noted for its large build chamber and can build parts up to 9.84" (250mm) x 9.84" (250mm) x 14.17" (360mm) in size, and increases DMI's capacity to supply metal parts in aluminum Al-Si-12, cobalt-chrome (ASTM75), H13 tool steel, inconel 718, inconel 625, stainless steel 316L, stainless steel 17-4PH, titanium CP, Ti-6Al-4V and Ti-6Al-7Nb via additive manufacturing. The system specifically addresses special processing requirements for 3D printing Titanium due to its high-quality atmosphere for building reactive materials where oxygen content must be minimized. In tests the system's running vacuum dropped oxygen levels to less than 100 parts per million. It also has the capacity to run non-reactive materials under nitrogen gas.

DMI is a leading provider of 3D printing, rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing services to the automotive, aerospace, defense and medical industries. The company's product development and engineering facility offers access to computer numerically controlled (CNC) machining, direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), fused deposition modeling (FDM), hybrid tooling, injection molding, selective laser melting (SLM), selective laser sintering (SLS), stereolithography (SLA), polyjet (3D printing) and the proprietary pro CAST RTV tooling within a quality controlled environment. DMI's manufacturing facility is registered AS9100C with the International Aerospace Quality Group (IAQG), ISO 9001:2008 certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) registered. The company holds active memberships with the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), International Standards Authority (ISA), National Tooling and Machining Association and Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).
