Markforged’s 3D printing solutions will complement Würth’s existing portfolio of supply chain solutions for OEMs, including kanban solutions for streamlined manufacturing. The distribution firm provides a range of products and services to its customers, including metal 3D printed production parts and tools, rapid prototyping and full-service digital kanban solutions for optimized inventory management.

“We are thrilled to bring innovative digital supply chain solutions to our customers,” said Dan Hill, CEO for Würth Industry North America. “By integrating Markforged 3D printing technology with our existing kanban programs, we are able to offer quicker time to market and lower inventory costs. We’re able to cut out the sourcing, purchasing, and transportation costs and deliver the value directly to the customer.”

The distribution agreement encompasses Markforged’s metal and composite 3D printing technologies. The former is capable of printing parts from a range of metal materials, including copper, tool steel and Inconel, while its composite technology can print continuous carbon fiber and Kevlar materials, among others. The material versatility of both platforms is expected to enable Würth customers to benefit from a broad range of inventory solutions.
