Kevton Technologies, a subsidiary of Houston-based contract manufacturer Kevton Industries, has acquired seven Sapphire 3D printers from Velo3D to provide its customers with high-quality, additively manufactured parts. The purchase is one the largest ever with Velo3D from a contract manufacturer and will make Kevton Technologies one of the top suppliers of additively manufactured parts relying on Velo3D’s laser powder bed fusion technology. The first two Sapphire printers are scheduled to begin producing parts for customers in Q1, 2023 in Kevton’s Houston, Texas facility.

“Our team is seeing a strong trend towards additive manufacturing—especially within the aerospace industry—and our partnership with Velo3D will help us maintain our leadership position as a provider of manufactured parts within all of our key industries,” said Kevin Nguyen, Kevton Technologies President. “After meeting with many vendors of additive manufacturing technology, we understood how transformational Velo3D’s fully integrated solution could be for our service offering.”

Kevton Technologies provides its customers with an array of manufacturing services, including CNC turning, CNC milling, coordinate measuring machine inspections, wire EDM, and other finishing services. The company has an extensive list of certifications, including ISO9000/AS9100. Its new additive manufacturing division will work to continue the company’s legacy within its key industries.

“Additive manufacturing is seeing extensive growth right now and we’ve only scratched the surface of the adoption we expect to see over the next decade,” said Benny Buller, Velo3D CEO. “Companies with the foresight to acquire additive manufacturing technology now will be much better positioned to grow their market share in the coming years. We’re thrilled to be working with Kevton Technologies to help them establish themselves as a provider of mission-critical, additively manufactured metal parts.”

Velo3D’s additive manufacturing technology made its debut in 2018 and has since seen extensive adoption in the aerospace industry, with customers like Launcher, SpaceX, Hermeus, Lockheed Martin, and Aerojet Rocketdyne using it to build some of their most complex designs.
