Velo3D establishes Technical Center in Germany

Metal 3D printer manufacturer Velo3D has expanded its European presence with the establishment of a new Technical Center in Augsburg, Germany. The 1,200 square foot facility will be used to house several of the company’s Sapphire 3D printers, allowing Velo3D to better showcase its additive manufacturing technology to prospective customers. The Technical Center will also include a lab area, offices, and conference rooms.

“Europe is a key market for Velo3D’s growth in the coming years and we’re thrilled to deliver our first end-to-end additive manufacturing solution and open our new technical center to accelerate this expansion,” said Benny Buller, Velo3D’s CEO and Founder. “With Velo3D’s end-to-end solutions, seeing is believing, and at our Augsburg facility, we’ll be able to demonstrate our impressive additive manufacturing technology in person.”

Desktop Metal triples manufacturing capacity for Production System P-50

Desktop Metal, a developer of binder jet 3D printing technology, has opened a new in-house manufacturing facility at its headquarters in Massachusetts. The factory will be used to triple the assembly space currently dedicated to producing the firm’s flagship Production System P-50 3D printer in a bid to meet the growing demand for the system. Desktop Metal aims to assemble the initial builds for shipment by the end of the year.

“After a significant development cycle, we are experiencing growing, pent-up demand for our Production System P-50 solution. As we continue to convert these opportunities, expanding our in-house final assembly capabilities has become a critical step to scaling deployment of our Single Pass Jetting technology,” said Ric Fulop, Founder and CEO of Desktop Metal. “This new facility in Massachusetts, in conjunction with our contract manufacturers and suppliers, supports our ability to meet growing demand for high-volume applications.”

VIT Chennai set to establish new AM Center of Excellence

VIT Chennai (Vellore Institute of Technology) in Tamil Nadu has signed an MoA with Sedaxis Advanced Materials to establish a new Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence on the university’s campus. Designed to help accelerate the adoption of 3D printing, the facility will be fitted with a wide variety of professional 3D printers that will be available for SMEs in the region to use.

Dr. Kanchana Bhaaskaran, Pro Vice-Chancellor at VIT Chennai, said, “Today, we are excited to welcome onboard SEDAXIS Advanced Materials, the industry partner in our journey of fruitful collaboration in the domain of additive manufacturing. Besides providing solutions to the social and industrial problems, we are also looking forward to witnessing many remarkable outcomes as part of this association.”

Orbex takes flight new 3D printed rocket engine production facility

Orbex, a UK-based aerospace firm, has opened a new production facility for the 3D printing of rocket engine components. The company has already installed a custom-made AMCM M4K 3D printer at the site, which it will use to 3D print its mono-body rocket engines and turbopumps in-house.

The large-format 3D printer is well suited to Orbex’s production needs as it sports a build volume of  450 x 450 x 1000mm, meaning it can be used to fabricate metal parts up to a meter in height. Orbex has stated plans to leverage the system to print entire main-stage rocket engine bodies in a single build, which will help reduce the overall mass of the rocket.

TPM debuts new 3D printing lab in North Carolina

Manufacturing firm TPM has announced the launch of its new 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Lab in Charlotte, North Carolina. The lab is designed to serve as a centralized location for companies in the Southeast to see, first hand, how 3D printing technology can benefit their businesses. TPM will also use the site to provide additive manufacturing services for customers that don’t yet own their own 3D printers.

Chris Fay, President of TPM, says, “We are beyond thrilled to launch this new lab in our Charlotte, NC location. As our company looks to serve the Southeast region in a broader capacity, it was critical that we brought all our 3D technology into one place so that our customers and prospects could truly evaluate what is best for their businesses.”

Sandvik increases production capacity and revamps powder sales team

Sandvik Additive Manufacturing, a provider of powder materials for the 3D printing sector, has increased its material production capacity with the installation of two new atomization towers at its facility in Neath, UK. The move comes following the recent opening of a new plant in Sandviken, Sweden, which is being used to manufacture titanium and nickel-based alloys.

Annika Roos, Business Unit Manager of Sandvik’s metal powder business, said, “Sandvik offers extensive capabilities in terms of providing high-quality and consistent metal powders, to customers engaged in a range of additive manufacturing processes. By installing these new atomization towers – one of which is already fully operational and quality assured, while the other is under construction – we bring our total tower count to twelve.”

The firm also recently revamped its powder sales organization, appointing Dr. Martin McMahon as its new Head of Global Powder Sales. McMahon has a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from Liverpool University, and has already held several senior roles at companies such as Renishaw and 3T Additive Manufacturing. Sandvik has also bolstered its EMEA metal powder sales team with the addition of two new sales representatives: Manuel Winkler and Dr. Olesia Khafizova.

Fraunhofer IPA and partners launch new HSS Material Network

Fraunhofer IPA, together with the University of Bayreuth and 3D printer OEM Voxeljet, has launched a new HSS Material Network to advance 3D printing polymer qualification for Voxeljet’s High Speed Sintering (HSS) process. The network’s aim is to share knowledge and collaboratively accelerate polymer development in additive manufacturing, specifically by providing customers with a flexible way to have new 3D printing polymers tested, qualified, and certified.

The partnership also gave rise to the Campus Additive Innovations (CA.I), an interdisciplinary think tank at the University of Bayreuth where scientists can work with and advise companies.

“Medium-sized companies in particular often lack the equipment, interdisciplinary skills, and resources to conduct their own materials research and technology optimization. To close this gap, we founded the Campus Additive Innovations,” explains Dr. Frank Döpper, University of Bayreuth. “The HSS Material Network offers customers and interested parties a flexible and low-risk outsourcing option for material development.“
