NVBOTS is one of the companies that hit the ground running and has continued with a very clear vision. From putting 3D printing into the hands of student innovators to putting 3D printers onsite in camps and 3D curricula in schools, we’ve followed their progress as they work to empower the world with new technology and skills.
Now, this global provider of automated enterprise 3D solutions has announced the they’ve steadily turned their interest and dedication to 3D printing with metal, and want to support any other companies interested in turning to that technology for production. With NVLABS, the NVBOTS team is dedicated to helping meet their needs as they work to ‘commercialize their innovations’ with not just metal printing, but that of multi-metal printing–and at very high speeds.
- Stainless steel
- Copper nickel
Users can also look forward to printing ten times faster than with any other solutions, and not only that–they promise better pricing.
As NVLABS is launched, the NVBOTS team welcomes Dr. Paul Burke as Chief Research Officer and he will be leading NVLABS’ R&D efforts, commercial projects, and innovations. As a renowned metallurgy expert who also possesses a great deal of experience with 3D printing, this is certainly a win for all–and the goal is for companies who are investing in metal 3D printing to be able to use their knowledge and patented technology in order to take their products and innovations to the marketplace in a revolutionary new way.
“As NVBOTS has evolved, our core focus has always been around a three-part evolution: education, innovation and commercialization,” said NVBOTS CEO AJ Perez. “Through the establishment of NVLABS and bringing on Dr. Paul Burke, we are breaking new ground in enterprise 3D printing, through unmatched multi-metal printing capabilities, allowing companies on a global scale to commercialize their innovations in ways never before thought possible.”
Dr. Burke is known as both a visionary and an expert in sintering and has been a lead researcher in numerous areas, including that of liquid metal battery, electrochemical studies and automotive body sheet alloys. He has held numerous positions at MIT as well as other prominent organizations, and holds a PhD in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, as well as a Masters of Applied Science, Materials and Metallurgical Engineering, received at Dalhousie University.
“3D printing is undergoing a transformative state and NVBOTS has been leading the way since the development of the world’s first fully automated 3D printer, able to run 24×7 without human interaction–essentially providing a six-square-foot automated factory in a box,” said Dr. Burke. “With NVLABS, the company is set to take things to an entirely new level, granting companies access to state-of-the-art automation and ultra-high speed, multi-metal printing capabilities that will allow them to cost-effectively manufacture and scale, in ways only imagined – until now. I am proud to be part of such a well-respected and progressive company, and I look forward to making a difference in the world through our efforts.”
NVBOTS user-friendly and sharing-oriented platform is centered around the NVPro, which we’ve reported on often–and most recently as they began donating packages to non-profit Citizen schools. The printer is coupled with the NVBOTS cloud-based interface, which is able to run nonstop from any device.
“Since our inception, NVBOTS has been committed to transforming education and business through a truly disruptive approach to 3D printing,” said NVBOTS CTO Forrest Pieper. “Through the establishment of NVLABS and bringing on a known metals thought leader like Dr. Burke, we continue to challenge the status quo, fundamentally transforming 3D Printing in new and exciting ways.”
