TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS
The company reports that the average
order size across its customer base is
10,000 parts over a nine-month commitment
period. It also executed shipments
of more than 150,000 parts of a
single component, accounting for the
increase in average deal size by about
90% year over year.
" Shipping parts in these volumes alThe
Manufacturing Cloud allows flexibility to update designs at any time and scalability in real time.
accommodate its accelerated growth,
3DEO more than doubled its facility in
Torrance, spanning 80,000 sq. ft (7,432
sq. m) of manufacturing and office
space. The company currently has 37
printers in production with plans to
add 44 additional printers into production
in 2022.
3DEO plans to install 125 of these
next-gen printers in Torrance over the
next three years, capable of producing
more than 20 million parts per year in
its initial factory. " We are in an exciting
position for continued scale, " Sand said.
" 3D printing is a tiny fraction of manufacturing
overall, which means we basically
have unlimited room to run in the
coming years. "
Accelerated growth in 2022
3DEO expects to triple its growth this
year from 2021, with medical and aerospace
companies largely driving the
increase along with other industrial sectors.
A significant driver is the continued
global supply-chain disruption,
which makes a strong case for increasing
domestic production.
Metal-printing parts suppliers are
helping companies regain control over
the manufacturing process, according
to Sand. He has cited MIT analysis that
suggests 3D printing could reduce total
supply chain costs by 50% to 90% as

production shifts from make-to-stock
offshore facilities that heavily rely on
freight to make-on-demand facilities
located closer to the final customer.
Digital manufacturing allows OEMs to
scale up or down as needed, enabling
real-time responses to fluctuations in
demand or disruptions in the supply
chain, Sand added.
3DEO announced it had shipped its
millionth customer part in July 2021.
lows 3DEO to compete with traditional
manufacturing such as metal injection
molding and CNC machining, " said Jim
Golden, 3DEO's VP of sales. An average
uptime of 89% for its printers was
achieved in 2021. The company says this
ramped-up uptime has been key to
3DEO becoming the highest-volume
metal 3D printing company in the
world, citing 3dpbm Market Research.
The company's team also expanded
last year, by 91% to 175 total employees,
with the engineering group growing by
about 120% to a total of 33 engineers.
" Beyond our headcount growth, 3DEO's
technological advantage continues to
rise as we have the data and IP to create
a powerful flywheel, " said Payman
Torabi, 3DEO's co-founder and CTO.
" The possibilities for continued digitization
and technology implementation in
manufacturing are infinite. "
Ryan Gehm
Matt Sand, 3DEO's co-founder and president: " The printer is actually only a small piece of the puzzle
when it comes to mass production. "
