SPEE3D, Melbourne, Australia, has announced that it is working with the New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII), Newark, New Jersey, USA to bring cold spray Additive Manufacturing (CSAM) technology to its facility. The school has installed the WarpSPEE3D Additive Manufacturing machine at its Advanced Manufacturing facility, offering training for students and the military to build large-scale metal parts on demand through its Collaborative Operationalised Manufacturing Engineering Training (COMET) initiative.

NJII chose the WarpSPEE3D machine to help address research manufacturing and industry supply chain needs, emphasising workforce development training. The WarpSPEE3D enables faster and more scalable production than traditional manufacturing. It builds parts up to 40 kg (88 lbs) with a diameter of up to 1 x 0.7 m (40 x 30 in) in hours versus days. This speed transforms metal Additive Manufacturing from prototyping into a large-scale, on-demand manufacturing solution.

“NJII’s Advanced Manufacturing facility was established to build a strong manufacturing workforce by providing hands-on experience with the latest equipment – including Additive Manufacturing technologies,” stated Sam Gatley, Director of Operations, NJII COMET Initiative. “We are evaluating the newest equipment for its potential capabilities in ideal settings such as NJII and remote locations where the military has pressing demands. The addition of the WarpSPEE3D printer will help accelerate these goals.”

NJII was founded in 2014 and combines the resources of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), strong industry and government relationships, and proven methods to drive innovation and deliver transformative products and services. NJII accelerates technology transfer and fosters innovation that has a positive economic impact in New Jersey.

Within NJII, the Advanced Manufacturing Facility located at 360 Landing is a 1,858 m2 advanced manufacturing workforce development centre focused on ensuring the opportunities to improve the national security and readiness presented by advanced manufacturing become reality.

“SPEE3D has been fortunate to partner with some of the leading academic institutions worldwide, and we’re excited to partner with the New Jersey Innovation Institute and their COMET initiative to bring our cold spray Additive Manufacturing technology to both students and the local military,” shared Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D. “The partnership will allow them to bolster their manufacturing needs with the ability to print large-scale parts quickly that would otherwise not be available.”
