Save Time and Money with American Made Parts
Merit3D is advanced manufacturing using additive manufacturing technologies, commonly referred to as "3D printing". Merit3D is the future of manufacturing in America. Many US companies regretfully, have to go to China or other overseas manufacturers to find inexpensive labor, plastic and metal components for their products. Many times these involve expensive molds, dies or stamps, increase inventory costs and require long lead times, all of which require significant amounts of additional cash from the business.
Merit3D will challenge these 100+ year manufacturing methods by making available quality, digitally manufactured products from additive, at a fraction of what people are used to paying for additive services today. We will be able to deliver thousands of products within days, without the excess inventory, wait times or design constraints. We are working on this for Dustless Technologies and we plan to scale it quickly and offer it as a service to other manufacturers.
Ongoing technological advancement in additive manufacturing continues to further increase quality, speed, and savings.
We are working with suppliers around the globe to increase the durability of the materials and to bring the price down on equipment and materials. These same suppliers have equipment that can print the surface quality of injection molding at a speed that, in some cases, is faster than injection molding.
Technology is changing at an increasing pace in additive manufacturing. The solutions for the above challenges are becoming better each day. By being pioneers in this market, we want to grow it fast and increase manufacturing in America. We need to get volume moving through the assembly line to be able to get better prices on materials. Better material prices = lower prices we can offer to customers, which means more customers = more volume.
As our prices decrease we will pass additional savings on to our customers. We understand that this is dependent upon continual improvements in technology, but we are confident in those improvements as we have seen them unfold. We plan to stay at the forefront of additional improvements. Larger companies are unable to be flexible enough to adapt to the changes in technologies required to be successful early on in this market. We are flexible and quick to adopt improvements in technology which will help establish us as a leader in advanced manufacturing in the US.

"Working with you through these two designs has been a pleasure. You move quick, you listen, and you deliver. You didn't give me a 3D version of our product, you gave me 'artwork'...and that matters a lot to us. You've earned the business." -Brooks Courtney President of EZLevel
