Hammers at Formnext
November 15, 2019
SPEE3D are launching a new product at Formnext 2019 called ‘SPEE3Dcell’ – the world’s first metal 3D printing production cell. SPEE3Dcell combines a SPEE3D printer along with a heat treatment oven and CNC 3 axis milling machine. It’s everything you need to go into production manufacturing metal parts… without a foundry!
The team wanted to demonstrate the ability to print, machine and assemble a product in a very small footprint with SPEE3Dcell. The hammers were a simple demonstration of this capability in action at formnext 2019 where the team are printing sparkless copper hammers. Each hammer takes just 6.2 minutes to print and then they are machined and assembled LIVE on the trade show floor!
The handles were made from Australian hardwood in collaboration with ‘The Mens Shed’ in Darwin, Australia. The Men’s Shed is a not for profit organisation which aims to prevent health issues and improve the wellbeing of men who are at risk of depression and isolation.
Come take a look for yourself – 19 – 22 November, Messe Frankfurt, Hall 12, Booth E02
If you would like to order your own as a collector’s item we will produce a limited run after Formnext and making them available for $100 USD. The proceeds from these hammers will be donated to the Darwin Men’s Shed to support their move to a new premises.
