CONTRACT MANUFACTURING If it seems like the company is just giving away its


secrets, well, that’s because it basically is. Though customers do have to pay for training and development courses, they’re getting all of Linear’s industry knowledge


and could, theoretically, use that knowledge to compete with Linear’s contract manufacturing services. But the company sees its strategy a little differently. As they explain, they’re just bridging the generation gap that exists between traditional manufacturing and 3D printing. “Additive manufacturing scares a lot of people because they don’t understand it,” Eisiminger says. “The way we see it, the more educated people are about the technology, the better off manufacturing will be as a whole.” In 2015, Linear will begin offering what they call “Research & Devel- opment Pods.” Part of a 17,000-ft2 (1579-m2


) expansion plan, the pods

will feature 32 direct metal laser melt- ing (DMLM) machines that customers can lease with 24-hour access. Les- sees can provide their own personnel or contract a Linear employee to moni- tor the machine. “We’ve been doing additive manu- facturing for a long time and there are a number of companies that have been growing, making samples and prototypes. Some of those prototypes are preproduction parts and our cus- tomers are looking at them, deciding whether to take them to production. Our idea was to keep offering prepro- duction services and then, when com- panies are ready to move forward with production, we’d be ready to take that on and set up machines dedicated to their project,” Tenbusch says. The expansion will also include space for a new DMLM machine lab and training center, additional fi nishing stations, and expanded tooling and moldmaking operations including a new gundrill and CNC and EDM equip- ment. “At Linear, you have the widest and deepest options of any service and any solution provider in North America,” Colter says.
