DiveDesign LLC (F1-14)
At Dive, we help manufacturing/product companies alleviate supply chain, workforce, and labor issues through AM (3D Printing). Our process starts with a business/operation evaluation to see where AM could be implemented and what an ROI would look like based on specific solutions. We then use our design/engineering backgrounds to update or refine the processes/products to be 3D Printed (based on the type of printing). With a solution in place, we help to seamlessly integrate the new machines or aid in production to keep operations and cash flow running smoothly.
