SPEE3D Showcases First Cold Spray Metal 3D Printed Wheel at RAPID + TCT Conference in Detroit

On the back of the announcement from US President Joe Biden to boost additive manufacturing through the AM Forward Program, SPEE3D will be showcasing the technology that enables SME’s to manufacture parts on-site or in the field in just minutes at the biggest AM event in North America!

SPEE3D will be at the RAPID + TCT Conference in Detroit Michigan on May 17-19 2022, displaying their cold spray 3D printed wheel for automobiles, as well as the live manufacturing of copper battery terminals. SPEE3D will be located at booth #1901, and CEO Byron Kennedy and members of the Board will attend the show, coming from the company’s headquarters in Australia.

At RAPID+TCT 2022, attendees will be able to view the first cold spray 9kg Mag Wheel Centre – (a very large part by AM standards!) – which was printed in just 5 ½ hours for the 2022 Melbourne F1 Grand Prix.

SPEE3D printers enable the most affordable and fastest metal additive manufacturing process in the world, leveraging metal cold spray technology to produce industrial quality metal parts in minutes, from anywhere. The process harnesses the power of kinetic energy, rather than relying on high-power lasers and expensive gasses, allowing metal 3D printing at normal production costs. Uniquely, SPEE3D delivers mid to large-size metal parts across industries including automotive, defense, marine, and aerospace.
