Australian company SPEE3D develops, assembles, and distributes machines and other integrated system solutions based on its own patented metal cold spray-based Supersonic 3D Deposition additive manufacturing technology (SP3D). Now, additive manufacturing R&D company Elementum 3D will get to benefit from this award-winning, large-format, extremely high-speed technology, as it has now adopted SPEE3D’s SP3D and added the technology to its existing list of available services and capabilities.
“We are very excited about partnering with such a pioneering company such as Elementum 3D,” said Byron Kennedy, the CEO of SPEE3D. “Their additive manufacturing and material expertise will help to bring cold spray additive manufacturing to the forefront and quite literally change the way parts are manufactured in several industries.”
The ISO 9001 certified Elementum 3D is focused on developing advanced materials, specifically ceramics, composites, and metals; in fact, the Colorado-based company was granted patents in the United States, Canada, and Australia last year for its Reactive Additive Manufacturing (RAM) process. By investing in SPEE3D’s cold spray metal 3D printing, Elementum 3D can offer a faster additive solution to its customers that need high-quality metal parts for tough, exacting industries, like aerospace, automotive, defense, and oil and gas.
“Our revolutionary RAM technology and AM expertise is helping meet the 3D printing industry’s ever-growing demand for a greater selection of printable materials,” said Elementum 3D’s CEO Dr. Jacob Nuechterlein. “We are confident the acquisition of SPEE3D’s technology will be an excellent addition to our current capabilities. Developing and applying Elementum 3D materials to SPEE3D’s cold spray printers is a major step forward towards our goal to offer customers a comprehensive range of AM solutions.”
Elementum 3D specifically acquired the WarpSPEE3D metal 3D printer, which has proven itself capable of being deployed in the field multiple times and can simultaneously print multiple industrial components at up to 1,000 x 700 mm in diameter. According to SPEE3D, its majorly large-format system actually has the capacity to print 30 tons of metal parts per year, and with print times of 100 to 1,000 times faster than other traditional metal AM processes, the WarpSPEE3D printer looks to be a more cost-effective solution as well.
“SPEE3D is honoured to be involved in Elementum 3D’s advanced materials research and development,” stated SPEE3D’s CTO Steven Camilleri. “SPEE3D’s cold spray fabrication technology provides a significantly increased scope for advanced materials development as the material is not melted during the print process. With our WarpSPEE3D technology, we look forward to how Elementum 3D spearheads material enhancement in cold spray processes for the future 3D printing market.”
