Ultra Machining Company: A Look at Additive Manufacturing in Minnesota
Last December, I spent four days visiting seven CNC machine shops in and around Minneapolis, Minnesota. Something I found interesting is six of them are using 3D-printing equipment in some way.
One of those six shops is Monticello’s Ultra Machining Company (UMC), which primarily serves the aerospace and medical markets. UMC purchased its 3D printer in 2014, a Stratasys Fortus, that prints parts in acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) polymer.
