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.

Printed part examples
Aluminium Compressor Drive Wheel
This part is a replacement drive wheel for an air compressor. This was an early demonstration of SPEE3D’s capability to print replacement components on-demand, which is another important application for SPEE3D technology. This is particularly important for industries where reducing downtime due to mechanical failures is critical.
Aluminium Camlock Fitting
This type C camlock fitting with a hose tail was printed in Aluminium 6061 for marine environments for use by the Royal Australian Navy.
Aluminium Bronze Propeller
Aluminium bronze is a strong material, corrosion resistant in sea water and naturally anti-fouling, making it ideal for marine applications.
Sparkless Copper Engineers Hammer
Engineer hammers are used for precision adjustment of equipment. Printed as an art piece, these were printed, finished and assembled live on the trade show floor at Formnext.
Aluminium Interior Door Handles
These handles are an example of an architectural hardware application.
Multi-Material Heat Sink
This part is created by printing copper onto aluminium fins to create a heat sink that is high performance, low weight and inexpensive to produce.
Copper Cable Clamp
Copper is a highly conductive material and is able to withstand load surges making it ideal for electrical components like this cable clamp.

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.
