“Our value-added resellers to eliminate that burden with 3D printing technologies that produce custom tools and end-use parts in real time”
Markforged, the leading manufacturer of metal and carbon fiber 3D printers, has announced its partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, to offer its industrial additive manufacturing technologies to the U.S. Governmental agencies.
The partnership will aim to make Markforged’s reliable, high-strength metal and carbon fibre printers available to Federal agencies and reseller partners via Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V contracts.
Markforged’s superior quality 3D printers are capable of producing cost effective metal and carbon-fibre parts making it easier for customers to apply and use 3D printed parts in their respective applications. The company’s industrial-grade printers are designed for use in remote locations and are already deployed on six continents and in some of the harshest operating environments. Markforged recently launched a flame-retardant material, Onyx-FR, which will be one of its key attractions.
Excited to partner with Carahsoft Technology, Markforged Vice President of Global Channel Sales Brian Houle said, “For decades, Federal agencies have used lengthy and complex supply chains to send new or replacement parts to the field. Markforged is excited to work with Carahsoft and our value-added resellers to eliminate that burden with 3D printing technologies that produce custom tools and end-use parts in real time.”
Equally eager to work together, Lacey Wean, Manager of the Markforged team at Carahsoft, exclaimed, “Being able to produce tools and parts independent of existing supply chains gives field teams the ability to adapt to changing mission needs. We look forward to partnering with Markforged and our reseller partners to offer Federal agencies the ability to deploy their own 3D printers and avoid the traditional costs and delays associated with external vendors.”
