Welp, looks like the Aussies are keeping their manufacturing momentum from 2020 rolling into 2021 – and they’re taking it to Brazil with SPEE3D’s cold spray additive manufacturing (CSAM)! CSAM is different from the more conventional likes of selective laser melting (SLM) and electron beam melting (EBM) additive as CSAM utilizes the kinetic energy from high velocity particulate to create molecular bonds in the material rather than chemical, electric, and thermal energy.
SAO PAULO, BRASIL, January 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Australian company, SPEE3D, designers and manufacturers of the world’s fastest Metal 3D Printers, are rapidly expanding globally into new markets. A recent agreement with Infocus Laser Systems means the world-leading technology will now be available in Brasil.
Infocus is a technology company based in Sao Paulo, Brasil. For 22 years the company has focused on facilitating production processes using laser technology. In the last 5 years, Infocus has focused on the Additive Manufacturing (AM) Market and has successfully developed Metal AM markets in Aerospace & Defense, Universities and R&D, Oil & Gas/Energy, Medical and Automotive industries. The addition of SPEE3D technology now means they can offer clients expertise in the world’s leading Cold Spray additive manufacturing (CSAM). Infocus will provide the technical sales and after-sales service including installation, training and day-to-day support of SPEE3D machines.
Infocus is led by Welodimer Neustadter Jr. As a technology enthusiast with extensive experience and training in Metal AM, Welodimer’s goal is to supporting AM businesses in Brasil. Mr. Neustadter says, “SPEE3D’s metal AM process using supersonic jets of metal powder onto a substrate is a fascinating idea. It got my attention as a one-of-a-kind technology to improve the speed & cost at which metal parts can be made. We are excited to take the next step in promoting this technology and its benefits in Brasil”.
Bruce Colter, Vice President & General Manager for the America’s Region states, “We‘re excited to have a company of such high technical caliber representing SPEE3D in Brasil. Our unique Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing (CSAM) technology will benefit many industries in Brasil and provide our Customers with a competitive advantage”.
SPEE3D was recently recognised by the Australian Export Awards and awarded the NT Exporter of The Year 2020 and Australian Trusted Trader Technology and Innovation Award 2020 in the NT Export and Industry Awards.
