Utah has become a hub for small manufacturers. In Price, UT, Merit3D, an innovative 3D printing process, was created to produce made in America industrial parts for several business sectors. The company’s roots are in the old coal mining communities of Carbon County, Utah. Merit3D’s mission is to bring new technologies to the county which will provide jobs as the coal sector shuts down. Today they are printing 10s of thousands and 100s of thousands of parts for other companies that have the same goals. Skip overseas inventory, skip injection molding, and buy American.

Merit3D founder Spencer Loveless tells a compelling story of family ingenuity, generational know-how, and gutsy innovation as he describes his additive manufacturing (commonly referred to as “3D printing”) company in Carbon County, Utah. Additive manufacturing enables entrepreneurs and inventors to solve many manufacturing challenges across multiple sectors and offer lower costs and a faster time to market for many commonly used products. Many believe it is poised to disrupt the $12 trillion manufacturing economy that has for years been dominated by manufacturers based in China.

Merit3D, a leading additive manufacturing company in Southeastern Utah, was able to 3D print 60,000 parts in under eight hours, setting a record for 3D printing, last February. The record was achieved using Magna 3D printers for high speed photopolymerization technology by Photocentric.
Price, UT – January 25, 2022
Merit3D, a leading additive manufacturing company in Southeastern Utah, announced today that it was able to 3D print 60,000 parts in under 8 hours, setting a record for 3D printing. Manufacturing is roughly a $12 trillion industry that largely takes place in China. 3D printing has disrupted the industry by allowing manufacturers to skip the injection molding process and go directly to production as well as bringing the process back to the USA. However, mass production with 3D printing has proved challenging. Merit3D hopes to overcome this challenge and bring manufacturing to the top of the list of industries in Southeastern Utah.

Spencer’s late father, Mike Loveless, invented the parent company’s first product to vacuum up ash from the wood-burning stove at home before launching a manufacturer to take it to market. “I think we’re the only ash-vacuum maker in the United States,” says Spencer. “Everything else is sourced in China. That market shrinks every year as people move away from wood-burning stoves.”
