Technology Partnership Announcement


Fathom and Lawrence Livermore National Lab Join Together in Technology Partnership
3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Company Partners with LLNLs Additive Manufacturing Research and Development Team

OAKLAND, Calif. — March 24, 2014 — Fathom, an advanced technology driven company with an expertise in 3D printing and additive manufacturing, announced today that the company has entered into a technology development partnership with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).

This collaboration brings together Fathom’s advanced industry knowledge and LLNLs unique R&D capabilities, facility resources, engineers and scientists to introduce and commercialize new market-leading additive manufacturing technologies.

Additive manufacturing is rapidly changing the design and production of all kinds of products. At Lawrence Livermore, we are not only applying additive manufacturing to our core mission of national security, but seeking ways to accelerate the process and create new materials, said Diane Chinn, division leader of Materials Engineering at LLNL. We look forward to collaborating with Fathom to explore new advances in this area.

By leveraging these combined strengths, Fathom and LLNLs technology solutions will involve new material development, processing, testing and characterization, plus, application specific advancements such as hardware and software.

Fathom is very excited about this advanced technology partnership with Lawrence Livermore National Lab, said Rich Stump, Principal at Fathom. Bringing together Fathom’s professional commercial industry expertise and LLNLs unique R&D capabilities, we will now have the ability to co-develop and introduce new technologies to help the 3D printing and additive manufacturing industry.

Stump and his partner Michelle Mihevc founded Fathom in 2008 and was ranked NO. 369 last year on the 32nd Annual Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the United States.
