Hawk Ridge Systems has opened the doors to its new additive manufacturing center in the Santa Clara Valley, San Jose. The new AM center is a response to the demand for a more robust facility – something the company believes is necessary, based on its experience over the years, as it has developed and expanded its 3D printing product portfolio.
Hawk Ridge Systems offers one of the widest selections of 3D design and manufacturing solutions. Their solutions include HP, and Markforged 3D printing technologies, Artec and Creaform 3D scanners, and the full portfolio of Dassault Systèmes offerings, including SOLIDWORKS, and CAMWorks manufacturing software.
Hawk Ridge Systems is one of the largest, award-winning providers of additive manufacturing solutions, and has received the ‘top SOLIDWORKS reseller’ award many times since its inception in 1996. The company also offers worldwide training through the Hawk Ridge Systems store. Headquartered in the Silicon Valley, the comapny has 22 offices in the United States and Canada, providing coast-to-coast coverage in North America.
The new additive manufacturing center in San Jose also includes the newest printer from Markforged – the FX20. Boasting state-of-the-art software and materials, the FX20 is capable of printing high-temperature thermoplastics, reinforced with continuous fiber, faster and bigger than previously possible. The lab will also offer the latest post-processing solutions from Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT).
“We are excited about moving our Digital Manufacturing Lab to a more spacious and accommodating facility,” said Paul Rudin, VP of Digital Manufacturing for Hawk Ridge Systems. “Displaying our additive solutions is important in order to demonstrate their value, features, and capabilities to our clients – and this space allows us to do just that.”
“We’re thrilled to expand our additive manufacturing capabilities with the opening of this new location. We hope to bring value to the Bay Area community while being an integral part of the local manufacturing sector,” added Dale Ford, CEO of Hawk Ridge Systems.
