RIZE Inc., the Boston, USA-based, manufacturer of unique extrusion-material jetting hybrid 3D printing systems, and PSMI, a global provider of metal removal solutions and engineering expertise for the world’s largest manufacturers, are partnering to offer Azoth, a new business model for providing an unprecedented additive manufacturing solution for the industrial manufacturing market.
Additive manufacturing is demonstrating to be a disruptive force in manufacturing and transforming products and the supply chain. Today, tooling applications comprise many of the key application areas for additive manufacturing in this market. With the formation of Azoth, PSMI demonstrates their vision to drive a digital transformation for their customers in the area of prototype and MRO products. Together, PSMI and Azoth bring their industrial customers an unparalleled subtractive and additive manufacturing solution.
“PSMI offers services at more than 250 plants across multiple countries, including OEMs, like John Deere, General Motors and Eaton Corporation,” said Scott Burk, Co-President of PSMI. “We intend to have each and every one of those locations deliver innovative additive manufacturing products and services to our customers.”
For the first time, Azoth, with support from RIZE, will create and operate the Additive Indirect Supplies Crib to provide manufacturers with custom prototype tooling, gaging, fixturing and more on-site at dramatically reduced lead times and cost, increasing their customers’ competitive advantage. Cost reductions of 50X and lead time reductions of 30X are expected to be feasible using RIZE’s additive manufacturing technology vs. subtractive methods. RIZE Authorized Reseller, Dynamic Detroit, a leader in subtractive machine tools and AM technology serving the USA Midwest, will provide sales and services support to Azoth.
“We are delighted to partner with a visionary company like Azoth to help drive a new business model based on RIZE’s APD additive manufacturing technology,” said Andy Kalambi, President and CEO of RIZE Inc. “RIZE is a future-proof technology in the fast-moving additive space. This partnership further demonstrates RIZE’s vision and leadership to enable Additive at Scale.”
