Who we are.
In 2017, Universal Technology Company (UTC) of Dayton, Ohio, consolidated various initiatives and recent acquisitions in Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing into a dedicated business unit focused primarily on expanding the possibilities of metals AM to meet defense and industry needs. Over the next two years, technology and product development were fueled by federal funds, internal investments, and relationships with collaborators like the University of Dayton Research Institute.
UTC's "3D Innovation Lab" branded its initial product line as OpenAdditive™ ahead of debut of its first product at 2019 RAPID+TCT trade show. In October 2019, with backing from new management, Open Additive, LLC, was established by the key members of UTC's AM business unit as a separate business focused on commercial and government sales of metal AM systems and related technologies, products, and services. Full spinout as a standalone entity was completed in Jan 2020.
