NUBURU, Inc., a leading innovator in high-power and high-brightness industrial blue laser technology, today announced that multiple units were delivered to Essentium, a worldwide leader in industrial additive manufacturing (AM). In May 2022, Essentium and NUBURU jointly announced a multi-year, multi-million-dollar agreement to develop and manufacture a blue laser-based metal AM platform. The deliveries announced today signify the initial execution of this agreement. Essentium expects strong growth across new applications and markets as a result of this technology integration.
NUBURU has begun delivering and Essentium has begun integrating NUBURU’s proprietary blue laser technology with its High Speed Extrusion (HSETM) 3D Printing technology. The new AM platform is designed to deliver breakthrough throughput for extremely high part quality and broad-scale use in major industrial markets, including automotive, aerospace, and defense.
Dr. Mark Zediker, CEO and Co-Founder of NUBURU, said, “We are excited to have delivered our first units to Essentium, and we look forward to delivering additional units over the course of 2023 and the coming years.”
Essentium launched EPOD (Essentium Parts on Demand), an in-house production service using its HSETM 3D printing technology in March 2023. The service offers fast and cost-effective production of parts at scale and access to Essentium's open AM ecosystem of solutions. NUBURU is excited to support Essentium's growth through partnerships with existing additive manufacturing service providers and manufacturing marketplaces.
“NUBURU's unparalleled expertise and leadership in blue laser technology have been instrumental in advancing our cutting-edge 3D printing platform. The arrival of the latest units this year and our partnership with NUBURU will help us continue to drive innovation in the AM industry,” said Elisa Teipel, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Essentium.
Essentium is also leveraging access to NUBURU’s intellectual property related blue laser technology, including patents granted in the United States, Japan, China, and South Korea.
Founded in 2015, NUBURU, INC. (NYSE American: BURU) is a developer and manufacturer of industrial blue lasers that leverage fundamental physics and their high-brightness, high-power design to produce faster, higher quality welds and parts than current lasers can provide in laser welding and additive manufacturing of copper, gold, aluminum and other industrially important metals. NUBURU’s industrial blue lasers produce minimal to defect-free welds that are up to eight times faster than the traditional approaches — all with the flexibility inherent to laser processing.

Mantle, the leader in metal 3D printing for toolmaking, announced today that it has won the prestigious Additive Manufacturing Start-Up Technology Award for its innovative metal 3D printing technology. SME, formerly known as the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, selected Mantle and delivered the award at the 2023 RAPID + TCT conference, North America’s largest Additive Manufacturing event.
The AM Start-Up Technology Award recognizes businesses with unique technologies that solve existing manufacturing problems with a unique technical approach. Mantle was selected as the winner of the award for its groundbreaking TrueShape 3D printing technology, which significantly reduces the cost and lead times to produce precision tooling while allowing for better tool designs and solving skilled labor shortages.
The AM Start-Up Technology Award is a highly competitive award that attracts some of the best and brightest start-ups in the 3D printing industry. SME, an organization committed to promoting and supporting the manufacturing industry and the creator of critical toolmaking content such as Tooling U, screened numerous start-ups before selecting Mantle based on the criteria of:
Technical feasibility: the technology has been demonstrated or is feasibly sound Uniqueness: the technology solves an existing problem with a unique approach Market potential: the technology serves a large market and can make a meaningful impact Messaging and communication: the company has a clear value proposition and messaging
"We are extremely pleased to be selected by SME as the 2023 AM Start-Up Technology Award winner. Since its public launch, Mantle has proven significant value for our customers by automating the process of making precision tools. Through multiple case studies, manufacturers of all sizes have experienced the ROI gains that Mantle's 3D printing technology delivers by slashing the time and money needed to manufacture precision molds compared to traditional toolmaking processes.” - Ted Sorom, CEO and co-founder, Mantle
Mantle announced the availability of its production machines in September of 2022 and has quickly established itself as the leader in metal 3D printing for precision toolmaking.
