ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. Announces Online Quoting for 3D Printing

DELAND, Fla., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCW), a leading global provider of advanced manufacturing and 3D printing solutions, announced today its division, 3D Material Technologies, LLC ("3DMT"), launched an online quoting system for 3D printing on its website: www.3DMaterialTechnologies.com.  The online quoting system will provide customers with the ability to utilize 3DMT's wide array of 3D capabilities, including Fused Deposition Modeling ("FDM"), MultiJet Printing ("MJP"), Stereolithography ("SLA"), and Metal Laser Sintering ("MLS").

The new online quoting system accepts STL's and popular CAD formats for upload, and allows the user to select the process and material of their choice.  The integration of online quoting with 3D printing provides customers with a fast and efficient turnaround time for both production and prototype parts.  By utilizing online quoting, plastic components ship within days of submission, while metal parts ship within a week.  The 3DMT website provides details explaining each process and material type, enabling users to select the option that best meets their application and objective.

An additional unique feature of the online quoting process is the ability to select the build quality.  Standard Build Quality ("SBQ") balances the need for accuracy and surface finish with the speed of the build.  Projects requiring higher tolerances and/or improved surface finish can utilize the High Build Quality ("HBQ") option.  Finally, Engineered Build Quality ("EBQ") maximizes the process, material, build method, and design by utilizing the Company's proprietary expertise and multi-decade advanced manufacturing experience.

"We developed the online quoting system in support of our customer's need to accelerate innovation through the reduction in 'time to market'.  Equally important, however, is our continued focus on delivering quality parts.  Our system, in connection with our engineering expertise, facilitates optimization through the reduction of overall assembly part counts, manufacturing simplification, and increased efficiency based on 3D Printing design flexibility.  Further, the online quoting system provides a wide range of applications and materials to potential new customers," says Ashley Nichols, General Manager of 3DMT.

The online quoting system can be accessed via www.3DMaterialTechnologies.com.  For customers without access to 3D models, 3DMT engineers can consult via online screen sharing or other traditional methods to understand the project and provide engineering solutions.

Jason T. Young, Chairman and CEO of ARC Group Worldwide, Inc., stated, "Online instant quoting is a major strategic initiative for ARC.  We believe the future of manufacturing will be done through the internet in a much more seamless way than exists today.  Quoting is the first bottleneck in 'time to market' and by reducing quote time, we can help our customers shorten the development life cycle and time to production.  Late last year, we began developing our own proprietary software to handle online instant quoting in a fully automated way.  While it will take time to roll out across our various business units, we have made the implementation into 3DMT our initial objective.  We are pleased to announce our initial version of online quoting at 3DMT, which will be followed this summer by a fully automated, instant solution."
