3D development solutions platform Velo3D (NYSE: VLD) the stock is on the rise after its IPO via the reverse merger of a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). The metal additive manufacturing (AM) solution is to provide a complete end-to-end hardware and software solution from design to print production. The company touts its efficiency with microturbines, turbopumps and heat exchangers. Dozens of parts can be combined into one unit, from design to construction. Velo3D technology disrupts decades-old manufacturing processes of turbines and various high-value metal parts. The technology is years ahead of other AM technologies. In a nutshell, technology can deliver high value, complex metal parts with design benefits, lower costs, and faster delivery times. The components created are used in space rockets, jet engines, fuel delivery systems and other high-value critical metal parts. Risk-tolerant investors seeking exposure to next-generation end-to-end AM 3D printing technology can watch for timely pullbacks in Velo3D stocks.
The Velo3D Sapphire Metal AM printer disrupts traditional processes. Gas turbines generate electricity by converting liquid fuel or air into mechanical energy. Velo3D enables manufacturing optimization by disrupting the traditional process. This includes the combination of casting, 5-axis machining, brazing or welding dozens of subcomponents to build a gas turbine. Velo3D can bundle dozens of parts (61 parts) into a single unit, resulting in more optimal, more efficient, lighter (50%) turbines with power density (10X) and durability (40X) higher. Essentially, creating a new wave of innovation in power generation. Velo3D technology is also applied in turbo pumps and heat exchangers, which can be found anywhere you find oil, fuel or electronics in a high performance vehicle. The proprietary Velo3D SupportFree Metal Powder Bed (PBF) fusion provides the ability to print horizontal surfaces without supports and with a high-quality surface finish, eliminating the need to post-process internal support structures, which provides much better internal channels and flow paths for fluids and gases. Designers can print an aspect ratio of 6000 to 1 with thin walls up to 150 microns thick to optimize heat transfer.
