SPEE3D releases high velocity ‘Phaser’ nozzle for its AM machines

June 23, 2022

SPEE3D, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, has announced the launch of its Phaser nozzle for its cold spray metal Additive Manufacturing machines. The new ultra high energy nozzle is designed to work with a wider range of hard phase materials and offers a significant increase in deposition velocity.

The new Phaser nozzle uses compressed air or nitrogen to deposit material four times faster than the speed of sound at a much higher energy. This company states that the process achieves high particle velocity to enable more deformation of particles during the deposition process. As a result, harder materials can be made including stainless steel, titanium, high strength aluminium and nickel based carbides. These materials are in addition to the company’s existing range of copper, aluminium bronze and aluminium materials.

“The SPEE3D Phaser nozzle is revolutionary because anyone can print what’s considered ‘hardier’ materials, and without having to rely on helium to cold spray these materials like other nozzles,” said CTO Steven Camilleri. “With supply chain issues continuing to delay parts for industries such as space, defence, auto racing and maritime, the Phaser nozzle can create these parts in just minutes to withstand severe conditions, high stress, immense shock loads and abrasive environments.”

The new SPEE3D Phaser nozzle is reported to be available in all SPEE3D AM models.
