SPEE3D, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, has added Nickel Aluminium Bronze (Expeditionary) alloy to its portfolio of material for Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing. The commercially available Nickel Aluminium Bronze Expeditionary (NAB Expeditionary) developed by SPEE3D is designed to be field-deployed and enable the rapid production of parts.

NAB (Expeditionary) is a high-strength, corrosion-resistant alloy known for its lubricity, resistance to cavitation damage, and stress corrosion cracking. It is predominantly composed of copper, but with significant amounts of aluminium, nickel, and iron. Its strength and impressive corrosion resistance in seawater and similar aggressive environments make it well suited for maritime applications. The material is also suitable for the defence, oil and gas, and mining industries, and it is reported that the parts can be field produced and delivered in under twenty-four hours.

SPEE3D has announced that it will additively manufacture parts with its WarpSPEE3D Additive Manufacturing machine on site at the Rapid + TCT conference from June 25-27 on booth #2439. The company will also have parts on hand built by the recently introduced large-format TitanSPEE3D.

“Each year, we look forward to participating at RAPID + TCT and are thrilled to print parts once again on-site and showcase why our unique Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing technology is ideal for various industries that require large-scale metal parts printed quickly, easily, and sustainability,” said Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D. “I’m excited to be here in Los Angeles and meet with our partners and potential clients, showcasing nickel aluminium bronze (expeditionary) and discussing our large-format printer TitanSPEE3D.”
