No metal AM hardware company has been able to gain rapid adoption in the aerospace segment as Velo3D. The company started just a few years ago by CEO Benny Buller, has already grown into a publicly listed entity on track to reach nearly $100 million in yearly revenues. Now Mr. Buller and Velo3D are the special guests of this first episode, in the second season of the 3dpbm Pulse Podcast.
Its machines are used to produce many of the most high-profile rocket engines and rocket engine parts, with growing applications in aviation and in the energy segment. They are used by innovative startups like Launcher, space pioneers like SpaceX, and aerospace giants like Honeywell, just to name a few.
Now, Velo3D wants to keep growing and bring its success stories into new markets, expanding into new application areas such as the energy industry and new international markets such as Europe.
This innovation is truly non-stop and today we have the opportunity to speak about how the company has experienced literally skyrocketing success by addressing two key challenges in metal powder bed fusion: efficiency and repeatability.
And we get to hear how they did it from the company’s founder and CEO, directly from the Velo3D’s HQ in Silicon Valley, Benny Buller.
“Our tremendous success in providing our customers with the industry-leading additive manufacturing solutions they need is reflected in our revenue growth, increasing more than 15 fold since the first quarter of 2021,” said Benny Buller, CEO of Velo3D. “We have accomplished this while the revenue of our peers has been relatively flat over the same period. As a result, given the expected strength of our business in the second half of the year, it is possible that we will be the industry leader in metal additive manufacturing as we exit 2022, quicker than even we anticipated.”
