We understand the challenges of manufacturing.
The SPEE3D founders, Byron Kennedy and Steven Camilleri, have a long history of commercialising innovative technologies and establishing factories all over the world. SPEE3D was founded because time and time again they came up against the same issues… making metal parts was just hard. Inspired to develop a technology that made it easier, they established SPEE3D.
Our mission is to make it easier.
SPEE3D printers enable the most affordable metal additive manufacturing process in the world. They make metal parts the fastest way possible, leveraging metal cold spray technology to produce industrial quality metal parts in just minutes, rather than days or weeks. The process harnesses the power of kinetic energy, rather than relying on high-power lasers and expensive gasses. And for the first time it allows the flexibility of metal 3D printing at normal production costs.
Byron Kennedy and Steven Camilleri have worked together for 15 years, first meeting as members of the Charles Darwin University World Solar Car Challenge team. They raced the ‘Desert Rose’ together between 1987 and 2005. After many successful years racing against industry giants such as General Motors and Honda, in 2000 the Desert Rose was awarded the world speed record for solar cars, averaging 107kmph.
In 2002 they formed ‘In Motion Technology’ (IMT) to commercialise the axial flux motor technology developed for the Desert Rose. This motor technology is now utilized around the world and is arguably one of the most successful commercials spinoffs from solar car racing. With the proceeds of a successful sale of IMT the pair formed SPEE3D.
