3DEO is a small business based out of Gardena, CA, about 15 minutes from LAX airport in Los Angeles. The company uses proprietary metal 3D printing technology to manufacture production components, primarily for applications in the aerospace, automation, defense, industrial, and medical industries. Production components, not prototypes. Right now, the company has eight of its proprietary metal 3D printers in a 13,000-square-foot facility, but the space could accommodate another 42 printers to meet demand.
I recently had a chance to speak with Matt Sand, 3DEO’s president for the last two years, and while he couldn’t share specifics, he could discuss the industry, particularly, how metal 3D printing is changing the way that people manufacture parts.
