For Andrew Tordanato, Diversified Manufacturing Technologies president, getting into 3D printing was a natural evolution. His family owns Mohawk Manufacturing, a metal stamping operation that has been in business since 1921. In 2015, the company added a metal 3D printing division in response to changing customer demands. Diversified Manufacturing Technologies grew out of that experience, along with the desire to further “diversify” into plastics and carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) as well as metals. Things are coming full circle now, as Diversified not only prints parts but also helps manufacturers who are thinking about adding their own additive manufacturing (AM) equipment to their shopfloor operations.
