SPEE3D has partnered with Singapore Polytechnic, ST Kinetics and NAMIC to produce metal components ranging from brackets to engine parts at speeds of up to 1000 times faster than conventional 3D printing technologies. The partnership will combine AMTC’s advanced gas atomisation system that is capable of producing customised metal powders for stronger and cheaper metal parts, with SPEE3D’s world’s fastest 3D printer for metals.
“Singapore is an ideal location to install the first LightSPEE3D printer in Asia. Together with Singapore Polytechnic, ST Kinetics and NAMIC, we can showcase to the world how high-speed 3D printing can revolutionise manufacturing,” said Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D.
Located at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), NAMIC is a pan-national initiative by the university’s innovation and enterprise arm, NTUitive. It aims to increase Singapore’s adoption of additive manufacturing technologies to enhance competitiveness in the rapidly evolving landscape of digital industrialisation.
Dr Rajnish Gupta, Director of Singapore Polytechnic’s Technology, Innovation & Enterprise department said, “We are excited to partner NAMIC and SPEE3D in revolutionising the manufacturing industry, given Singapore Polytechnic’s strengths and expertise in engineering. This will allow us to help position Singapore as a global Additive Manufacturing hub.”
SPEE3D printers our now situated across Australia, in Germany, Asia and is due to launch in the US shortly.
