SPEE3D's revolutionary new cold spray nozzle
What is the Phaser nozzle?
Previously SPEE3D machines printed copper, aluminium and aluminium bronze.
You can now print even hardier materials including stainless steel, titanium, high-strength aluminium and nickel-based carbides, thanks to the release of the ground-breaking Phaser nozzle.
How it works
SPEE3D's cold spray metal 3D printers are already the world's fastest, most robust, deployable additive solution to manufacture full-density, solid metal parts in just minutes.
The Phaser nozzle is a new ultra-high-energy nozzle that has been designed to work with a wider range of hard phase materials. The high particle velocity achieved with the Phaser nozzle means more deformation of the particles during the deposition process, which allows harder, tougher materials to be made.
As with its predecessor, with Phaser you don't need to rely on Nitrogen and Helium to cold spray these materials.
Using compressed air, the PHASER nozzle can effectively deposit material four times faster than the speed of sound at much hotter temperatures, up to 800 degrees Celcius.
You can also use nitrogen if you choose, but it isn't required.
New, hardier materials
With Phaser, you can now 3D print in a vast range of new materials, including 17-4 stainless steel, 410 stainless steel, 430 stainless steel, duplex stainless steel, titanium, aluminium 5056, aluminium 7075, chromium carbide-nickel, tungsten carbide-nickel chrome and many more.
These materials are in addition to SPEE3D’s standard copper, aluminium bronze and aluminium materials.
This enables the rapid creation of more parts for industries characterised by severe service conditions, high stress, shock loads, and abrasive environments. Industries such as space, defence, auto racing, mining, and maritime can all benefit from this robust and reliable additive manufacturing process.
