DI Labs is in the midst of their biggest investment yet – a 20,000ft2 innovation lab that will be a testing center for new, cutting-edge technologies and a resource for companies looking to leverage additive manufacturing as an adaptable strategy for competitive advantage. The facility is set to be completed this summer with a livestream reveal scheduled for Aug. 19, 2020. It will be an online, interactive event designed to provide engineers, designers, entrepreneurs, and supply chain professionals with a behind-the-scenes look at the state-of-the-art digital manufacturing facility focused on innovation, creativity, and quality.
“History has shown that success in product development and manufacturing requires extreme flexibility, especially in volatile times like these. With our product innovation experience and additive capabilities, we have an opportunity to help clients leverage additive technologies to accelerate their innovation process, adapt to market changes, reduce capital expenses, and pivot their strategies to meet changing market conditions,” says Carl Douglass, co-founder and president of DI Labs.
DI Labs’ advantage lies in their ability to meticulously refine processes and push the limits of each new technology they bring on board. They then pair those new processes and technologies to achieve unprecedented results. Recently, DI Labs custom designed a face mask, printed it using multi jet fusion and high-performance nylon PA12, then applied a customized finishing process to create a sealed, sanitizable mask with pliable side flanges that can form to facial contours and create a safe, airtight fit.
“Unlike others in the industry, our objective is not just to run production, but to provide meaningful solutions,” says Brian Douglass, co-founder and COO of DI Labs. “We’re product development engineers who are committed to finding the right solution for each problem a client brings to us – whether that requires a one-off functional prototype, a custom finishing process, or thousands of parts delivered the next day.”
