NVBOTS, of Boston, Massachusetts, USA, has announced the establishment of NVLABS, a dedicated R&D division to meet the needs of companies seeking to commercialise their innovations through ultra high-speed multi-metal 3D printing.

Based on what is claimed to be the only 3D printing technology that can print multiple metals in the same build, NVBOTS enables companies to capitalise on 3D printing opportunities related to a growing list of metals that includes stainless steel, titanium, nickel, copper nickel, aluminium, zirconium, silver and palladium.

NVLABS will be headed by the recently appointed Chief Research Officer, Dr Paul Burke. “3D printing is undergoing a transformative state and NVBOTS has been leading the way since the development of the world’s first fully automated 3D printer, able to run 24×7 without human interaction – essentially providing a six square foot automated factory in a box,” stated Burke.

“With NVLABS, the company is set to take things to an entirely new level, granting companies access to state-of-the-art automation and ultra high-speed, multi-metal printing capabilities that will allow them to cost-effectively manufacture and scale, in ways only imaged – until now. I am proud to be part of such a well-respected and progressive company, and I look forward to making a difference in the world through our efforts,” added Burke.

NVBOTS states that its patented technology can manufacture over ten times faster than existing solutions and offers multi-metal and plastics printing capabilities.
