Hanover, Maryland and Detroit, Michigan, June 14, 2021 - Phillips Corporation is a leading service provider and manufacturing partner to the United States Federal Government. Committed to redefining the DoD’s logistics strategy with the use of additive manufacturing, Phillips Corporation has decided to adopt 3YOURMIND’s sophisticated suite of software solutions to enhance AM part identification.

Since November 2019, Phillips Corporation and 3YOURMIND have joined efforts in analyzing the feasibility of AM to increase combat readiness. This latest announcement comes just months after the DoD released its AM Strategy Report in January 2021.

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with 3YOURMIND,” says Tim McClanahan, Business Development Manager at Phillips Corporation. “Our AM Innovation Center includes the most advanced hardware, software and services on the market. Adding 3YOURMIND software enables us to provide many more proactive solutions to our Military partners for leveraging the full potential of their additive manufacturing assets.” 

Time is critical for US troops in the field that face emergency situations daily and require immediate answers to complex issues. Utilizing 3YOURMIND software enables the US government to identify AM ready spare parts and print them on demand at FOBs across the planet.

“3YOURMIND and Phillips Corporation share a similar vision to reimagine the supply chain,” says William Cuervo, Senior Business Development Manager USA at 3YOURMIND. “Our Agile PLM software, equipped with a sophisticated part identifier tool, is a secure program that provides data transparency and streamlined communications that enable defense organizations to take decisive actions.” 

3YOURMIND software digitizes the warehouse and gives immediate access to spare part production through additive manufacturing. Long lead times and logistical nightmares will no longer delay mission success.

3YOURMIND’s unique software platform analyzes Computer Aided Design (CAD) data and develops a library of files categorized by technical and economic metrics. These metrics are used to determine if a part is suitable for AM and what type of time or cost advantages can be applied.

Through a consultative approach (the P.R.E.P process), 3YOURMIND provides training and support for Phillips Corporation and gives the military an advantage to do more with less.
