Vector Consortium focused on expanding onto manufacturing production lines

On Jan. 26, Mosaic Manufacturing announced a partnership with Dyze Design and Matter and Form, called the Vector Consortium.

The partnership was announced in conjunction with NGen, Canada’s advanced manufacturing supercluster, aimed to help advanced manufacturing technology companies scale up and grow in a challenging landscape.

Many manufacturers are looking to onshore their operations in the face of supply chain issues in 2022. Mitch Debora, CEO of Mosaic Manufacturing, is well aware of this, and has formed Vector to try and serve this new need.

“We partnered with Dyze Design and Matter and Form to try and move from being a prototyping tool to becoming a production tool. Dyze Design are experts in extrusion technology, and Matter and Form are experts with metrology,” says Mitch Debora.

When asked what this means, the CEO of the 3D printing and additive manufacturing company was clear.

“Dyze Design are experts in extruding plastic at a great speed and in an efficient and reliable manner, and Matter and Form uses metrology to measure to and audit everything being created. Currently in 3D printing, there aren’t proper measuring tools beyond doing it manually.”

This points towards a strategy suggesting Mosaic’s desire to bolster their Array printer’s capabilities to boost production lines for larger manufacturers and not just prototyping, researchers and small-batch production.

NGen’s involvement is intended to de-risk growth and scaling up for the manufacturer through access to a network of businesses that will help Vector collaborate with manufacturing partners.

With this announcement of a new consortium, Vector is targeting white label manufacturers, small businesses using 3D printers and education/research facilities hoping to grow.

Mitch mentions that the Vector Consortium is intended to boost the capabilities of the Array 3D printer, though he did not mention when Vector’s benefits would be seen on the marketplace.

The CEO of the advanced manufacturing company did say however, that Vector plans on announcing a number of developments in 2022.

“Manufacturers that are considering onshoring as a result of supply chain troubles in 2022 are desperate to find solutions that can copy plastic processing and injection molding, and we’re hoping to address this change in the global economic landscape,” says Mitch.

Partnering with Dyze Design and Matter and Form is a play to improve scalability and reduce the cost of production, buttressing the Array 3D printer’s capabilities with better QC and a more efficient throughput in the future.

The NGen seal of approval continues to highlight advanced manufacturing companies with promising technologies trying to alleviate the talent shortage and supply chain issues plaguing manufacturers.
