SPEE3D, the maker of a number of the world’s quickest metallic 3D printers, has launched its excessive velocity ‘Phaser nozzle’, a brand new, ultra-high-energy nozzle designed to work with a wider vary of laborious part supplies – with a big enhance in deposition velocity.
SPEE3D’s chilly spray metallic 3D printers are already a number of the world’s quickest, and most sturdy, deployable additive options for manufacturing full-density, strong metallic components. The brand new high-velocity Phaser nozzle makes use of compressed air, or nitrogen, to deposit materials 4x quicker than the pace of sound, with a lot greater vitality. This course of achieves excessive particle velocity – enabling extra deformation of particles in the course of the deposition course of. In consequence, more durable supplies may be made – together with chrome steel, titanium, high-strength aluminum, and nickel-based carbides, along with SPEE3D’s customary copper, aluminum bronze, and aluminum supplies.
“The SPEE3D Phaser nozzle is revolutionary as a result of anybody can print what’s thought-about ‘hardier’ supplies, and with out having to depend on helium to chilly spray these supplies like different nozzles,” mentioned Steve Camilleri, CTO of SPEE3D. “With provide chain points persevering with to delay components for industries reminiscent of house, protection, auto racing and maritime, the Phaser nozzle can create these components in simply minutes to face up to extreme situations, excessive stress, immense shock hundreds and abrasive environments.”
SPEE3D’s chilly spray course of is high-speed, constant, and in a position to produce high-quality prints each time. The know-how is used world wide and has confirmed to be dependable by clients together with the Australian Military, EWI, Penn State Utilized Analysis Laboratory, in addition to different international organizations that require fabricating components in harsh expeditionary subject environments. Within the case of the Australian Military, for instance, SPEE3D has examined and validated metallic 3D printing as a navy functionality, with the most recent subject trial being the longest and most difficult to this point happening within the distant northern territory.
