Fathom Digital Manufacturing Company, an industry leader in on-demand digital manufacturing services, announced it has entered into a commercialization partnership with Evolve Additive Solutions. Under the partnership, Fathom will be the first provider of Evolve’s additive manufacturing technology, Selective Thermoplastic Electrophotographic Process (STEP), in North America.
STEP technology enables the production of thermoplastic parts within hours or days without compromising on quality, throughput, scalability or cost, a significant time advantage over the typical multi-month lead time for traditional injection molding tools and parts. STEP technology is also an environmentally responsible manufacturing process that reduces carbon footprint by eliminating the need for tooling as well as by reducing warehousing and transportation logistics. Additionally, the Evolve SVP (Scaled Volume Production) platform delivers throughput that is up to 10 times faster than any other industrial additive printer.
Fathom is addressing global supply chain disruptions that are a threat to productivity and revenue generation by fully leveraging over 25 in-house agile manufacturing services across 12 nationwide manufacturing sites which allow customers to consolidate and simplify supply chains.
Fathom Digital Manufacturing will use STEP technology and its in-house capabilities of over 530 advanced manufacturing systems across plastic and metal additive technologies, CNC machining, injection molding and tooling, precision sheet metal fabrication, and design engineering to help companies bridge critical supply chain gaps.
