METAL 3D PRINTERS INSTALLED AT SUPERSONIC SPEED

Australian company SPEE3D has developed the world’s first metal 3D printer using supersonic 3D deposition (SP3D) technology to deliver manufacturing grade printing at production speeds. The technology allows operators to print industrial quality metal parts in just minutes. However, it’s the speed of international installation that shows the company has shifted into top gear.

SPEE3D installed five industrial printers in the last three weeks, one at Melbourne’s Swinburne University and another for demonstration at National Manufacturing Week. Other machines were installed at the FIT Additive Manufacturing Group in Germany, Rapid + tct Detroit, North America's largest annual manufacturing conference and exhibition, and the University of Delaware.

“The LightSPEE3D printer we had installed is running great,” says Larry Holmes, Assistant Director of Digital Design and Additive Manufacturing at the Centre for Composite Materials, University of Delaware. “It’s also easy to operate. SPEE3D trained one of our staff who was then able to train other operators. The team are now using the machine every day.”

SPEE3D co-founder and CEO Byron Kennedy says: “Typically, 3D printers of this size and complexity require up to two weeks to install and set up. However, SPEE3D printers can be installed in a matter of hours. We’ve had machines delivered at 9am and printing parts by lunch time.”

During this busy time SPEE3D also launched its inaugural Supersonic 3D Printing Design Challenge, challenging 3D printing communities worldwide to present the best application design(s) using the LightSPEE3D and large format WarpSPEE3D printers.

Details can be found on SPEE3D’s website, and entries are open until 31st July.
