LightSPEE3D 3D Metal Printer

Print Metal Parts Ø350mm x 300mm

The world’s first metal 3D printer to use patented SPEE3D technology, enabling significantly faster, more cost-effective and more scalable production than traditional manufacturing.

The SPEE3D process is also 100 to 1000 times faster than traditional 3D metal printing, making it the world’s fastest way to turn your design into a usable printed metal part.

How is the process so fast?

Rather than using heat to melt metal powders, SPEE3D developed ‘Supersonic 3D Deposition’. This is the name given to the patented process in which a rocket nozzle accelerates air up to three times the speed of sound, into which metal powder is injected then deposited onto a substrate maneuvered by a six-axis robotic arm. In this process the sheer kinetic energy of the particles hitting each other causes the powders to bind together to form a high density part with metallurgical properties superior to casting.
