Nanogrande, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, will officially launch its new Additive Manufacturing system at Fabtech, November 6-8, 2018, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. According to the company, the new MPL-1 metal AM system uses a patented process which makes it possible to assemble metal particles of different sizes, shapes and types.

Juan Schneider, Nanogrande’s president and founder, stated, “It will be a great event for us and an extraordinary opportunity to meet the users of Additive Manufacturing equipment— our customers. This year, we have developed a new product, the MPL-1, which we will happily present to the visitors of Fabtech 2018.”

In addition to meeting visitors during the event, Schneider will take part in a technical conference in which he will elaborate on the technology developed by Nanogrande for the MPL-1. “Current 3D printing technologies are limited in their ability to layer particles smaller than 20 µm,” he explained. “We are the first to achieve uniform layering and controlled packing density of metal particles below five microns.”

Nanogrande was the first company to introduce a nanoscale AM machine, capable of assembling particle layers as thin as 1 nm using metals, oxides, waxes and polymers. The technology is said to have applications in a number of fields, including photonics, life sciences, micro fluidics, micro rapid prototyping, mechanical microstructures, micro-optics and maskless lithography.
