Velo3D, Inc., a leading metal additive manufacturing technology company for mission-critical parts, and Hartech Group, an advanced technology equipment supplier to the United States federal government, announced a partnership to distribute Velo3D technology to government agencies, including the Department of Defense. The collaboration establishes Hartech Group as the federal government’s preferred distributor for Velo3D.
The companies will collaborate to provide full-service project execution for Velo3D’s advanced metal additive manufacturing solution’s sale, installation, and onboarding.
“Our team has deep experience delivering solutions to customers in the federal government and we know what it takes to not only supply the piece of technology, but also supply everything needed to make the equipment fully operable to the DoD end user. We are a well-known prime contractor specializing in providing complicated turn-key solutions to top subtractive machining manufacturers, which is why we have decided to build these same solutions in the AM world.”– Gary Bredael, Hartech Group Director of Additive Manufacturing
Bredael continued, “We have chosen Velo3D and its end-to-end solution for our federal government customers interested in acquiring advanced additive manufacturing technology due to the company’s very high quality and reputation. We will use our top ratings with the federal government to make sure we supply a full Velo3D solution.”
Hartech Group only works with federal government clients and has extensive experience with Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), General Services Administration (GSA), Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA), and DLAA and local contracting. Customers who purchase Velo3D Sapphire printers and software from Hartech Group will benefit from a streamlined procurement process that includes set up, training, and ongoing support, allowing them to focus on building the parts they require without compromise.
“It’s no secret that the federal government can be slow-moving and difficult to navigate for new-comers, but Hartech’s background and capabilities will help us grow our presence with these customers so they can leverage the benefits of advanced additive manufacturing. In the short time that we’ve officially partnered together, there has already been extensive interest from Hartech’s contacts in the federal government—and we’re just getting started.”– Benny Buller, Velo3D CEO and Founder
Hartech Group chose Velo3D because its technology is uniquely suited for complex DoD requirements, particularly in supply chain management. Velo3D’s ability to deliver repeatable results across any of its machines, for example, aids in the development of AM-enabled distributed supply chains. Furthermore, the core Velo3D technology—the non-contact recoater, controls, and software components of its end-to-end solution—enables engineering design advances that are not possible with other solutions.
