Amaero International Limited, headquartered in Notting Hill, Victoria, Australia, has commissioned its first AmPro SP500 and SP100 machines at its new facility in El Segundo, California, USA. Amaero is reported to  have exclusive distribution rights for the sale of AmPro machines in North America, and is now offering the SP500, SP100, and their ancillaries.

The AmPro SP500 is said to be particularly suited to the Additive Manufacturing of steel tooling and has a build area of 500 x 250 x 250 mm with minimal factory floor impact compared to traditional machine tool options. The machine also features removable build cartridges, enabling fast build changeovers.

The AmPro SP100 is reportedly simple to use, easy to maintain, and ideal for R&D, academia, teaching, and low volume production. It has a smaller Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) platform with a build envelope of 100 mm diameter and 80 mm in build height.

“I was particularly impressed by the safety, efficiency, and capital costs of the machines and look forward to putting them to use,” commented Shawn Zindroski, General Manager of US operations, Amaero International Limited. “The SP100 technology gives us the ability to test, validate, and develop our internal parameters set for our existing powder alloys. Importantly, as the metal powder market continues to evolve we will have a platform to test new alloys easily to scale for our customer production runs.”

Barrie Finnin, CEO, Amaero International Limited, stated, “This is a significant milestone in our company’s overall growth strategy as we are now able to really accelerate our sales strategy. Having the AmPro SP500 and SP100 operational for the first time marked the start of our machine sales in the United States. “Machine sales form an important part of our business plan and strategy and through our exclusive distribution rights for the AmPro machines in the United States we are now able to offer the SP500, SP100, and their ancillaries for sale as of today.”
