We are honored to have Magnum Venus Products (MVP) as a long-standing IACMI member and we look forward to future advancements resulting from this partnership.
Last week, Magnum Venus Products (MVP), in partnership with the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), installed the first commercially available medium/large-scale thermoset 3-D printer at the DOE’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility in Knoxville, Tenn. ORNL contributed to this project through a DOE Office of Technology Transitions Technology Commercialization Fund project managed by the Advanced Manufacturing Office in DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
According to MVP, the 3-D printer was developed in response to growth in 3-D printing, a market demand for hyper-customization and the need for advanced manufacturing automation.
As MVP explains, while 3-D printers have been around for years, the additive manufacturing industry had needed a cost-effective solution that could print structures and molds. MVP engaged with ORNL to create a 3-D printer capable of printing large-scale thermoset materials.
