Manufacturing Technology Insights | Tuesday, April 06, 2021

Primus Aerospace has joined the VELO3D partner network after acquiring the Ti6Al4V Sapphire® metal additive manufacturing (AM) system.

FREMONT, CA : Primus Aerospace, a pioneering contract manufacturing partner to aerospace, defense, and space OEMs, has joined the VELO3D partner network after acquiring the Ti6Al4V Sapphire® metal additive manufacturing (AM) system.

VELO3D's first titanium-specific metal 3D printer will be used primarily for aerospace and defense applications. Primus has described VELO3D's AM system as a solution for various applications, including cube satellites, hypersonic, and turbine engines.

Lockheed, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, and Raytheon are among the top military primes and aerospace OEMs that the Colorado-based organization serves.

"Primus is proud to be a leader in this manufacturing category," says Gary Vaillancourt, Vice President of Engineering & Technical Sales. "Our customers require maximum performance of their aerospace-related systems and, together with VELO3D, we can redefine what is possible in manufacturing through advanced AM technology."

Primus Aerospace will offer their customers unique design freedom and high-quality AM services as a result of their collaboration with VELO3D. Primus aims to reveal robust design and manufacturing abilities with the VELO3D manufacturing solution that will help the realization of previously unattainable geometries and tailored solutions and the discovery of innovative aerospace applications.

"Primus Aerospace is an excellent partner for us with their customer focus, commitment to innovation, and adoption of leading-edge technology," says Benny Buller, Founder and CEO of VELO3D. "Our capabilities will help them deliver to engineers and supply chain managers the part designs they want, not the limited part geometries that other commodity-AM suppliers say they can have. The synergies between our two companies will support developers of new products to optimize their designs without compromise or restraint."

Primus Aerospace plans to deliver the titanium Sapphire® System in the first quarter of 2021 and start offering titanium printing plants at their Golden, Colorado.
