Specialised cooling and water systems provider Snowbird Technologies, Jacksonville, Florida, USA, has announced its plans to launch the SAMMTech, a distributed Additive Manufacturing machine suitable for the production of large, complex metal parts.

SAMMTech’s gantry technology can perform both metal additive and subtractive manufacturing, and can be used in harsh environments and rough terrain thanks to its incorporation in a standard-size shipping container. Using laser-based Directed Energy Deposition (DED), a standard welding wire can be used to either repair or additively manufacture parts.

“This method of 3D printing allows for a wide range of materials from carbon steel to titanium,” stated Scott Morse, president of Snowbird Technologies. “In addition, any printed part can be post-processed using the cutting mill. This combination will enable quick, high-tolerance interim and end-use parts to be produced onsite anywhere in the world.”

With more than 31 years of experience, Snowbird also offers a range of custom-built environmental control units and air water generators, providing support for users in military and industrial markets.

SAMMTech will be on display in the Snowbird Technologies booth T619 at the 2023 Sea-Air-Space Show, scheduled to take place April 3-5 in National Harbor, Maryland, USA.
