Metal 3D printing powder company Elementum attracts SCOA investment

ELEMENTUM 3D | January 13, 2020

Additive manufacturing research and development company Elementum 3D has received investment from Sumitomo Corporation of Americas through its Series A funding round. The undisclosed amount has been given to Elementum in order to support its endeavours in the development of advanced metal, composites and ceramic materials for 3D printing. It represents SCOA’s fourth investment in the additive manufacturing market, after backing aerospace supplier Sintavia, manufacturer AREVO, and service bureau Shapeways. Elementum is working to develop and deliver materials to market that it believes have previously not been processable on Direct Metal Laser Sintering platforms. These materials are said to boast a range of high-performance properties, such as high strength, durability and conductivity and resistance to heat, oxidation and corrosion, and are enabled by the company’s patent-pending Reactive Additive Manufacturing technology.

3DEO Announces the Launch of 316L Austenitic Stainless Steel

3DEO Inc. | January 30, 2023

3DEO, the leading design, engineering, and manufacturing organization known as the world's highest-volume metal 3D printing service, recently announced the launch of 316L austenitic stainless steel. The material is now accessible to customers in all industries, particularly medical, industrial, marine, and food processing. 316L (equivalent to UNS S31603) is an entirely austenitic, non-magnetic stainless steel with outstanding ductility and mechanical performance. It maintains excellent performance at both room and moderately elevated temperatures. In addition, this weldable material is highly corrosion-resistant, making it perfect for use in harsh environments. 316L is typically used for impellers and pumps, laboratory equipment, engine parts, jewelry, food processing equipment, kitchen appliances, surgical instruments, marine, chemical, and petrochemical processing, among other uses. 3DEO assists customers with complex metal components at all product life cycle stages, from early conception and prototyping to large-scale manufacturing. Since prototypes are produced on the same machinery and technology as more extensive production runs, customers can smoothly transition from prototype to production with 3DEO without requiring lengthy or costly design revisions or requalifications to launch products. Along with 17-4PH stainless steel, 316L marks the latest expansion to the company's materials division, with a growing number of new materials being tested and set to release in 2023. One of such metals in development is pure copper, which will be available in Q2. About 3DEO Founded in 2016, 3DEO is one of the world's highest-volume metal 3D printing companies. It is a differentiated service provider offering its customers trustworthy end-to-end solutions using its proprietary technology. It manufactures 3D-printed precision metal components with Intelligent Layering®, its patented metal 3D printing technique. 3DEO distinguishes itself from other manufacturers with its collaborative partnership approach to early-stage design, proprietary technology, and experience in complicated geometries and design for additive manufacturing (DfAM). In addition, the company developed the Manufacturing Cloud™, an end-to-end manufacturing platform designed to mass-produce its proprietary metal 3D printers using 3D printing, software, robotics, augmented reality, automation, and materials innovation.
