Australian additive manufacturing company, SPEE3D, demonstrated their state-of-the-art metal 3D printing technology live at the Melbourne Grand Prix.
MELBOURNE, VIC, AUSTRALIA, April 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The company’s flagship product, the WarpSPEE3D, is the world’s fastest metal 3D printer and can produce parts up to 1,000 times faster than traditional methods. This makes it ideal for on-demand production and rapid prototyping applications. For the event, SPEE3D partnered with Gary Rogers Motorsport to demonstrate high-speed production of aluminum parts for open-wheel s5000s.
With a growing global customer base, SPEE3D has made a name for itself in the additive manufacturing industry. In recent years, they have won numerous awards for their technology and hold the record for the world’s fastest printing of a 1 kg part. Based in Melbourne, the company has offered bettors and racing teams worldwide the opportunity to see this advanced technology in action.
It was the first time that crowds of motor racing enthusiasts could see dozens of printed-on-demand metal parts at the Melbourne Grand Prix. One of the many metal auto parts showcased at the event included an s5000 support arm. This 2.4 kilogram aluminum part was printed in just two hours on a WarpSPEE3D metal 3D printer for the low cost of just $180.
The live demo at the event’s Versor Tech Hub highlighted that printers aren’t limited to shop or lab environments. SPEE3D’s technology is currently the only metal additive manufacturing technology proven to have the ability to print metal parts anywhere and in some of the harshest environments in the world. Since 2020, SPEE3D and the Australian Army have tested the equipment in the off-road terrain, proving it is possible to 3D print and validate their own spare parts in the rugged bush and in extreme conditions.
Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D said: “It was exciting to showcase our technology at this fantastic event here in Melbourne. SPEE3D’s technology is the world’s fastest way to make metal parts, and what better place to show it off than at the Grand Prix, which is all about speed and innovation!
