SPEE3D, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, has announced that a WarpSPEE3D Additive Manufacturing machine is to be housed at the headquarters of Nupress, a precision machined components producer located in Cardiff, New South Wales, Australia. The move will enable local manufacturers and businesses gain access to the machine through a subscription service, without having to lease or purchase the AM machine.
Nupress is a manufacturer of precision machined components and assemblies with over fifty years of expertise. Together with SPEE3D, the unique subscription service will give Nupress clients, and other Australian manufactures, access to SPEE3D’s patented cold-spray technology. The subscription model offers one to six slots, each delivering twenty-five hours access per month for 12 months.
“Democratising access to SPEE3D’s WarpSPEED printer will help solve real-world problems around broken supply chains, manufacturing challenges, and massive delays for some of the world’s most significant industries,” stated Steven Camilleri, co-founder, and CTO of SPEE3D. “Local Australian companies can now access our technology thanks to Nupress, enabling smaller production runs, prototyping needs, material developments, and other advanced manufacturing capabilities.”
The unique subscription model will give clients in the mining, building, aerospace, defence, and medical industries, along with other sectors, the opportunity to source parts locally and quickly from a selection of twelve different metals.
Craig McWilliam, CEO of Nupress, added, “For decades, Nupress has discussed turning our customers’ printing visions into reality, and we are excited to partner with SPEE3D to offer a best-in-class solution for metal Additive Manufacturing. Beyond the exceptional technology, SPEE3D shares our ‘first class’ commitment to developing new printing materials that will broaden the opportunities across many industries and applications.”
