Making the Future
Additive 3D manufacturing is nothing new to BasTech. Since the early 1990s, as the first stereolithography machines were being commercialized, BasTech has utilized additive manufacturing technology in more ways than can be imagined. From end-use to aerospace components to highly accurate, functional prototypes for the automotive industry, to complex investment casting patterns, BasTech has done it all. Our associates are focused on matching your requirements, needs. and constraints to the best available solutions.
You could say that Ben Staub was born for BasTech. He got his start working at his father’s business, a CNC tooling shop. There, Staub learned the tools of the trade, finding his passion for the tooling industry.
As 3D tooling technologies continued to emerge, Staub completed his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering & Technology from the University of Dayton. His focus was on 3D CAD, which he brought back to his father’s business. Soon after, Ben led and managed the purchase of a stereolithographic printer and their new 3D operation for the next 2 years. When his father retired, Staub purchased that same 3D printing machine and started BasTech in 1994. BasTech’s first customer was the University of Dayton, Ben’s alma mater. Other early customers who helped seed BasTech’s growth included Delphi, GE Aviation (formerly ELANO), and Hobart.
Early in the business, BasTech was focused on the automotive industry; but as time has passed, BasTech has expanded its service lines and offerings to provide 3D printing solutions across diverse industries. In 1999, Staub transitioned BasTech to a technology-focused company leveraging his foundation of industry application expertise he learned in those early years.
Today, BasTech operates from a 32,000-square foot facility located on 8 acres in Vandalia, OH.
The future of 3D printing is now, and so is the future of BasTech. BasTech has developed a reputation for staying ahead of the technology. Staub and his team take pride in solving challenges using a two-pronged approach: pairing well-grounded traditional methodology with high-tech industrial expertise. BasTech is the region’s 3D additive manufacturing leader, providing a full-service suite of 3D printing solutions from prototype development to production level printing. Plus, BasTech is always looking ahead and continuing to expand their expertise, resources, and technology for metal production printing.
