Thermwood, Navy Sign Additive Manufacturing Partnership Agreement; Ken Susnjara Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventThermwood and the U.S. Navy's Fleet Readiness Center East have entered into a two-year cooperative research-and-development agreement to mature the company's large-scale additive manufacturing technology.

The company said Dec. 20 its three-dimensional printing machines are designed to  produce 3D-printed parts that are larger than needed and then trim the components to a final size through a near-net shape approach.

“We are excited to work with the FRC East and are confident that, working together, we can achieve significant advances and results,“ said Ken Susnjara, Thermwood founder, CEO and chairman.

Thermwood-built LSAMs span up to 100 feet in length and combine printing and machining on a single machine with the use of dual gantries.

The company rolled out its portfolio of large-scale additive manufacturing systems in September 2016.
