SPEE3D previews new large-format metal 3-D printer The Australian company SPEE3D, a leading global additive manufacturing company based in Melbourne, introduced its latest large-format ‘metal 3-D printer’, TitanSPEE3D, at the Large Scale Additive Action Team Meeting (LSAAT) held on 13 June at the DCU Centre in Worcester, Massachusetts (the USA).

The company says this machine will “bring a new era of metal component production, offering high design freedom and rapid production in just days, creating large metal parts that would typically require casting — a process that can stretch over months.”

TitanSPEE3D, which uses SPEE3D’s proprietary ‘Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing’ (CSAM) technology that allows for rapid and low-cost metal printing, will have a build volume of 2.4m in diameter ¥ 1m tall, a maximum printed part weight of 2,000kg, and the ability to work with a variety of metals, including 6061 aluminium, aluminium bronze, and 316 stainless steel.

Paul Maloney, SPEE3D’s chief revenue officer, added: “SPEE3D revolutionised large-scale metal 3-D printing when we launched our first printer using our ‘Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing’ (CSAM) technology, and we have elevated this success through continual expansion of our 3-D printing technologies. The TitanSPEE3D will be a game changer for industries that rely on casting for very large parts but would benefit from the ability to print quickly, sustainably, and at a competitive cost.”

TitanSPEE3D will be available to a limited number of beta customers in 2024, with the commercial release scheduled for 2025.
