Jabil has introduced a complete solution for creating, integrating and validating custom engineered materials for additive manufacturing. The availability of Jabil Engineered Materials reinforces the company’s 3D printing leadership while driving further adoption of 3D printing to produce highly functional parts for diverse and unique customer applications.
According to John Dulchinos, vice president of digital manufacturing, Jabil is taking advantage of its rich history in materials science innovation to advance the entire additive manufacturing market forward and produce custom materials in weeks. Its ability to integrate new engineered materials into our ecosystem of 3D printers and rigorous processes will transform a new generation of additive manufacturing applications, including those for heavily regulated industries, such as aerospace, automotive, industrial and healthcare.
According to a 2019 survey of 3D printing stakeholders sponsored by Jabil, expected growth rates for use of 3D printing have skyrocketed despite lingering challenges with part quality and materials. More than half of the 300 survey participants reported that the cost and availability of materials is an obstacle for increasing 3D printing adoption within their organisations.
