Flow 5.0 includes checks and messages that identify possible errors before a build even starts, reducing the likelihood of customers experiencing failures in their builds. In doing so, engineers can be confident that a part will print successfully before the process begins. Flow also now includes labeling for objects.
Sapphire XC 1MZ continues Velo3D’s legacy of delivering leading-edge performance for metal additive manufacturing technology and has the largest laser powder bed fusion print volume from a leading manufacturer. The Sapphire XC 1 MZ system combines Velo3D’s innovative geometric capabilities with the repeatable, standardized processes and validated…
The Sapphire product family now includes Sapphire Gen 2, the 1-meter tall Sapphire 1MZ and Sapphire XC—all using the laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF) process with patented capabilities to print without consideration of support structures. Sapphire systems specifically address the aerospace, power generation, and energy markets' unmet needs for…
The foundry-grade aluminum alloy, suitable for the laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF) process, enables 3D printing of parts that have traditionally been manufactured using casting practices. There are other Aluminum alloys that are more commonly used in metal additive manufacturing, such as AlSi10Mg, but Aluminum F357 can be anodized and shares…
Velo3D announced the general release of its end-to-end metal additive manufacturing (AM) solution comprised of the Sapphire system, Flow print preparation software and Intelligent Fusion technology. Together, the integrated solution solves some of the most difficult AM challenges, including product design limitations, part-to-part consistency,…
Copper is one of the “hottest” metals attracting attention in the additive manufacturing world these days. But 3D printing poses distinct challenges.
Aerojet Rocketdyne uses metal 3D printing technology from Velo3D to make a critical flight component lighter, smaller, and much less expensive than its predecessors.
