LightSPee3D Metal Printers Promise to Dramatically Speed Up Printing Times
A new 3D printing startup called SPEE3D out of Melbourne, Australia, has developed a new industrial metal printer called the LightSPEE3D. The printer uses supersonic 3D deposition technology. The printer can print manufacturing-grade products at a fraction of the speed of current printers. The company claims they can do the same job in minutes that it takes similar metal 3D printers to do in days.
SPEE3D, a 3D printing startup company from Melbourne, Australia, recently announced the global launch of its industrial metal 3D printer they’re calling the LightSPEE3D. It’s the world’s first metal 3D printer that introduces supersonic 3D deposition (SP3D) technology and offers manufacturing-grade 3D printing with fast production speeds. The LightSPEE3D is designed for scalable and on-demand production and measures print speed in units of minutes as compared to a number of hours or days found with most industry standard machines.
Byron Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of SPEE3D, talks about why he launched the company and how their technology will add value to customers:
“SPEE3D was started after I experienced the slow pace and lack of rigor in the high cost, traditional metal 3D printing industry. In the past, users had to wait hours or even days to have a standard part delivered to them. Now, SPEE3D can print these same parts in mere minutes, on-site and in real time. This enables the accessibility of just in time production – allowing manufacturers the choice and flexibility of printing 10,000 parts or just a single part with ease.”
