Senvol Database: The Gift that Keeps on Giving Adds 100+ Industrial 3D Printers

Straight outta New York City!! Senvol is one of my favorite 3D printing startups in the whole industry. Why?  Basically, because they so clearly want to help move the industry forward.  They are an analytics and consulting company tailored solely for the additive manufacturing industry, and they’ve already worked for giants in the industry, including Fortune 500 companies and government agencies in highly regulated industries, such as aerospace, oil & gas, automotive, as well as less regulated industries like consumer products.

But the biggest reason why I like this company is because of the Senvol Database, which is like a locomotive force of clarity which keeps on growing. The Senvol Database is the first and most comprehensive 3D printing database of industrial additive manufacturing machines and materials, and it is very easy to use.  They’ve added over 100 new machines and materials over the summer, allowing users to start with any type of spec and end up with a clear answer.  With these additions, the Senvol Database currently allows users to crawl over 1,000 machine and material entries.  There’s literally nothing else like it out there.  And it’s free to use! Free!

And Senvol Co-President Zach Simkin couldn’t be happier, saying, “We’re pleased to continue to see the industry grow – and not simply with new machines and materials, but with machines and materials that offer improved functionality.” The Senvol Database is free for anyone to use at anytime, but don’t think you have it all to yourself.  Who else is using the Senvol Database? Hmm, let’s see: try GE, Caterpillar, Northrop Grumman, Ricoh, General Motors, and Johnson & Johnson, as just a small selection.

I gush when I write or talk to someone about Senvol because they are a great 3D printing startup dedicated to moving the industry forward in the best way.  They’re quick, innovative, and provide a great force of clarity in an industry plagued by clutter and misleading information.  Anyone can search the Senvol Database by over 30 fields including machine build size, price, material type, or material tensile strength.

“Whether you’re new to additive manufacturing looking to understand the landscape, or a design engineer searching for a machine and material to meet a specific application, the Senvol Database provides the information that you need, all at your fingertips,” added Senvol Co-President Annie Wang. I encourage you to do what I do, which is give them user feedback and comments. If you have any other questions or suggestions about the database, email [email protected].

Senvol’s founders have written in various additive manufacturing industry journals including the Wohlers Report, and are featured speakers at a wide variety of industry trade shows and conferences. They are also a Gold Member of America Makes as well as a member of the ASTM International F42 Committee on Additive Manufacturing Technologies. To learn more about Senvol, follow @Senvol on Twitter.
