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. Mantle has already been adopted by major OEMs, molders, and toolmakers who have benefited from the reduced time to market, improved part quality and lower cost production that come from using Mantle technology.
“Mantle's win is a testament to our company's commitment to innovation and excellence. The award is a significant achievement and a major milestone for the company, demonstrating the potential of its technology and their ability to make a significant impact on the precision tooling market.” - Paul DiLaura, CCO, Mantle
Mantle accelerates product development by simplifying how mold tool components are made. Mantle’s TrueShape™ metal 3D printing technology delivers the accuracy, surface finish, and tool steel properties required for demanding tooling applications. Tools made with Mantle’s technology have produced millions of parts while reducing tooling lead times and costs. Mantle is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Anycubic, a well-known 3D printer manufacturer, will launch two brand new products soon - the first leveling-free LCD printer Photon Mono M5s and a high-speed FDM printer Kobra 2.
Anycubic has come up with new solutions to address users' pain points of the two most widely used types of printers. For LCD printers, Anycubic will launch the first consumer-grade resin printer with a leveling-free feature to further enhance the ease of use for users while pursuing the ultimate accuracy. For FDM printers, Anycubic will launch a high-speed entry-level printer that guarantees high-speed printing while being universally accessible in terms of price.
Photon Mono M5s - Print Like A Master
Photon Mono M5s brings a resolution of 12K in a 10.1-inch monochrome LCD screen. This superior ultra-high resolution screen allows perfectionists to print models of details at a microscope level of 19μm. From the globally anticipated Photon Mono X to the Photon Mono M5s, Anycubic is dedicated to advancing printing technologies to endow 3D creators with top-of-the-range results.
Photon Mono M5s is the first desktop consumer resin 3D printer with a leveling-free solution. The leveling-free solution leaves makers with leveling adjustment hassle-free. Combined with the application of Anycubic's 3rd Gen high-speed release film, the printing success rate is also noticeably raised.
Anycubic proposes a printing scheme that boosts printing efficiency by three times to an average speed of 105mm/h, saving up to 74% printing time.
Kobra 2 - Print Fast, Pay Less
Kobra 2 is Anycubic's fastest printer of its line. With a default speed of 150mm/s and a maximum of 250mm/s, Kobra 2 is 5X faster than most commonly seen beginner FDM printers in the market. Kobra 2 reduces print time drastically by up to 70%. Most beginner FDM printers print at 50mm/s, and a 3Dbenchy will take up to 110 minutes; while Kobra 2 only needs 30 minutes to get the work done.
"At Anycubic, we strive to provide our community with the best 3D printing products and technology while keeping in mind a good balance between practical functionalities and cost. Bringing the cost down and making 3d printing technology accessible to most families is the goal of our business," said James Ouyang, Vice President of Anycubic.
Kobra 2 incorporates the widely-lauded direct extruder with a new dynamic mechanic structure, an upgraded cooling system, and a double Z-axis threaded rod design, ensuring a successful printing experience beyond just being fast.
With Anycubic's 2.0 LeviQ leveling system and the smart Z-offset, 3D creators can enjoy seamless printing.
Since its establishment in 2015, Anycubic has been committed to propelling 3D printing technology to ensure that 3D printing is accessible and affordable to people from all walks of life. We are happy to see people unleash their imagination and creativity into reality. Anycubic has made its presence in over 200 countries and regions since 2015. The company has released more than 20 widely favored products, with 3 million units sold over the past 7 years. With the commitment to "For Freedom to Make," Anycubic will continue to bring the best products and technologies to all makers.
