3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) introduced the new MJP 300W wax 3D printer and the VisiJet Wax Jewel Ruby – two additions to its portfolio of end-to-end solutions for jewelry manufacturing. The company’s new MJP 300W is the most advanced and flexible among its wax 3D printers, capable of addressing a variety of jewelry manufacturing workflows with enhanced productivity, efficiency, quality, and design freedom.
After TOYOTA adopted its high-speed metal AM technology, Japanese startup SUN METALON has raised $2 million in additional pre-series A funding from new investors Impact Science Ventures, i-nest capital, Scrum Ventures, and existing investor D4V (Design for Ventures). This brings the total amount raised since inception to approximately 1.3 billion yen (US$9.7M).
Meltio, a specialist in affordable wire-laser metal deposition additive manufacturing technology (Directed Energy Deposition, DED), launched the new Meltio Robot Cell, a turn key metal additive manufacturing solution featuring an industrial robotic arm and the recently launched slicing software Meltio Space. The new hardware fits within the Spanish company’s vision to offer a reliable solution for industries around the world, reducing costs and improving manufacturing processes. This new system allows standard metal 3D printing starting from a build plate in a factory as well as part repair or feature addition.
3D Systems has completed its strategic initiative to insource the manufacturing of two more strategic printer platforms. The company transferred this activity from two electronics manufacturing services (EMS) partners, with which 3D Systems maintains commercial relationships to expand the adoption of these platforms globally. As a result of insourcing, the company now controls the entire manufacturing process from design to production – leveraging its deep technical and application expertise to deliver products of superior quality and innovation to its customers. Additionally, with this increased level of manufacturing process control, 3D Systems has matched or improved production quality and reduced lead times to meet customer demand. This includes the ability to be nimble and adapt solutions to meet customers’ unique needs with unmatched additive manufacturing capabilities and printing process customization options.
When Raise3D first announced its MetalFuse solution for end-to-end metal fused filament fabrication in late 2021, it became one of a small number of companies in the AM industry to specialize in metal extrusion technologies. Today, the company’s solution is used for quickly and safely producing all sorts of metal products, from jigs and fixtures, to functional parts and prototypes, to small-batch end-use components. As we’ll see in more detail, Raise3D’s technology really excels when it comes to precision. This is enabled due to a combination of hardware and software optimizations, as well as a deep collaboration with materials developer BASF Forward AM. Let’s take a look at how the company’s Forge1 3D printer and MetalFuse workflow stand out within the metal AM and—even more specifically—metal FFF segments.
