Hypertherm’s 3D printers, RMON Networks named to Fast Growth list … and more
Hypertherm, the Hanover-based manufacturer of plasma, laser and waterjet cutting systems, is relying on a network of Boston-based New Valence Robotics’ NVPro 3D printers to speed product design, evaluate marketing concepts, and test assembly processes, New Valence recently announced.
“We were using 3D printing on a limited basis, but our existing solution was poorly suited for a multi-user environment. It was difficult to use, time-consuming to manage and unreliable. We were seeking an alternative, and were pleased to discover NVBOTS and the company’s NVPro platform,” said Hypertherm’s engineering manager Cliff Darrow.
To date, Hypertherm has four NVPro 3D printers in operation, with more than 100 associates using the printers to produce more than 50 parts per week, the company said.

The National Alliance for Public Safety GIS (NAPSG) Foundation has named Angelo Marino, GIS manager for the City of Nashua, as a winner of its 2016 Award for Excellence in Public Safety GIS.
Marino was nominated by Justin Kates, director of emergency management in Nashua, who said Marino “stepped up to the plate to lead the initiative” when the city launched its GIS program.
One of his efforts was the development of “common operating picture” that “helps all city departments increase the safety of our residents," said Marino. Since deployed, the city's common operating picture has been utilized in five presidentially declared disasters.
