OCTOBER 2019: The team at DI Labs is proud to announce the acquisition of 3D printing startup, Advocate 3D, a full-service prototyping service bureau located southwest of the Minneapolis metro. The move allows DI Labs to grow its technology portfolio and expand its client base throughout the Midwest.
APRIL 2018: Brian Douglass of DI Labs was recently named runner up in the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Technical Competition Advanced Concepts Category with a creative gasket installation tool. The competition provides a forum for users of additive manufacturing technologies to display their unique applications as well as their finishing capabilities.
DECEMBER 2018: DI Labs announced the addition of Minnesota’s first HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) to their additive manufacturing capabilities. Since then, they have invested in several additional 3D printers; most recently adding an HP Jet Fusion 3D 4210 Printing system.
NOVEMBER 2018: SciTechsperience interns Joseph Fernandez and Matthew Pearce joined the Douglass brothers this last summer to assist with engineering projects and learn more about product testing and design. “It’s actually somewhat serendipitous from my perspective,” Carl Douglass said, “As we’ve had projects for both Mathew and Joseph, those projects have been great foundation builders for where they both want to be in their careers. It’s also served the needs that we’ve had to support our customers. It’s just been perfect.”
APRIL 2018: DI Labs is once again expanding their technology portfolio with the addition of high resolution 3D scanning. They have purchased two Artec industrial scanners which are some of the most advanced in the industry. This new technology allows them to capture and record the exact size, surface quality and structure of physical objects then convert them to digital 3-dimensional computer models.
