Aurora Labs S-Titanium Pro sees growing interest in research and academia

Aurora Labs Ltd, Bibra Lake, Western Australia, reports that sales of its Aurora Labs S-Titanium Pro metal Additive Manufacturing system are increasing, with three orders having been placed in the second half of 2018. The company has seen increasing academic and research interest in the system, especially from universities and R&D facilities, which it states is in large part due to the system’s comparatively low acquisition cost of €55,000.

The Aurora Labs S-Titanium Pro offers a build volume of 200 x 200 x 250 mm and has the ability to additively manufacture structures in a wide range of materials, including but not limited to titanium, stainless steels, Inconel and bronze. It offers three modes – Selective Laser Melting, Selective Laser Sintering and Directed Energy Deposition – and includes specific parameters developed for manufacturing products with titanium.

A key feature of the system is its open approach to parameters and materials, which gives the user the freedom to select any combination of parameters and materials from third party companies. This is also of special benefit to universities and research organisations.

An Aurora Labs S-Titanium Pro system was recently acquired by Rey Juan Carlos University in Madrid, Spain. Speaking on the acquisition, Joaquin Rams, a researcher at the university, stated, “I consider the flexibility of the Aurora Labs S-Titanium Pro system perfect for academic use, as it allows modifying many parameters including types of powders and even mixtures of powder, which is not commonly seen in metal 3D printing systems.”

Engineering company Hyon Engineering GmbH acquired an Aurora Labs S-Titanium Pro system in August 2018. Odon Szinyi, HYON Engineering, commented, “As an engineering firm, we develop products for the automotive, aerospace, transport and medical industries.”

“The Aurora Labs S-Titanium Pro will be used to print parts for customers and the ULC.EVs (ultra-low-consumption electric-vehicles) we are developing. It was the right choice for us due to the large build volume and it has excellent value for money considering 3D printers of this size and abilities often cost over more than a quarter million euro.”
