PADT Named EOS Distribution Partner Across Southwest United StatesApril 20, 2021
PADT, a provider of numerical simulation, product development, and 3D printing products and services, announced it has been named distribution partner for the full EOS lineup of industrial metal 3D printing systems. PADT will represent the company’s powder-bed fusion systems across Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas and Utah.
“PADT is experiencing explosive growth,” says Jim Sanford, vice president of sales and support for PADT. “Our new partnership with EOS helps us serve our customers and expand their 3D printing options with this lineup of systems. Metal materials are the next major frontier in 3D printing innovation and PADT is an early adopter. We continue to explore new ways to apply the technology to meet our customer’s evolving needs.”
PADT will sell EOS small and medium systems, the EOS M 100 and EOS M 290; and its large production platforms, EOS M 300 Series, EOS M 400 and EOS M 400-4. PADT has installed an EOS M 290 machine onsite to develop end-use metal products for customers and expand its ongoing research and development of metal 3D printing.
“As 3D printing technology has advanced, PADT has seen an increase primarily in the aerospace and defense industry’s use of 3D printing for end-use parts,” says Rey Chu, PADT co-founder and principal. “Metal 3D printing provides many benefits over traditional manufacturing, including lighter, cost-effective parts made much faster and with greater design freedom. The EOS machines provide PADT’s entire range of customers with a wide variety of options to produce metal parts quickly and effectively. Those same advantages will benefit any industry that has a need for low-volume production of complex metal parts.”
