Yes, it’s a mismatch of clichés, but at Magnum Venus Products, we’re closing out 2018 with a bang, and meeting 2019 head-on with the new! As one of the leading manufacturers of composite application equipment, MVP has been supplying a multitude of industries with highly customized solutions that support their manufacturing needs for over 60 years. Over the past year, however, we unveiled or released numerous innovations that were ground-breaking, transformative, and literally filled gaps in the composite application industry. This blog is a quick recap of what made 2018 a uniquely special and incredible year at MVP.
MVP/ORNL Partnership Achieves Large-Scale Thermoset 3D Printing
In April, MVP, in partnership with the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), installed what will be the first commercially available large-scale thermoset 3D printer at the Department of Energy’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility in Tennessee. This machine has the potential to dramatically increase productivity for the additive manufacturing industry. In fact, the thermoset printer not only earned a finalist place for the CAMX award in Dallas this past fall, but also brought home the coveted ACE (Award for Composites Excellence). The ACE is awarded for the product most likely to impact new and emerging sectors while increasing composite use in existing markets.
