3D Printing Company SPEE3D Cooperates with HAW Hamburg

Australian metal AM specialist SPEE3D has partnered with the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) in Germany to introduce a novel, non-fusion-based additive manufacturing technology to education. This makes HAW Hamburg the first academic institution in Europe to use a 3D printer to produce entirely new parts using SPEE3D’s patented cold metal spray technology.

With the LightSPEE3D printer installed, HAW is enabling faster and more flexible production than traditional methods. The deployment is taking place at the Institute of Materials Science and Joining Technology, under the direction of Professor Dr.-Ing. Shahram Sheikhi.

“The University of Applied Sciences Hamburg is a forward-thinking, innovative institution with Professor Sheikhi at the helm solving some of the world’s most pressing manufacturing issues,” said David McNeill, Director of Business Development for EMEA at SPEE3D. “The opportunity to work with HAW Hamburg and support the European maritime industry represents a ‘sea change’ for cold spray printing in Europe. They can now make new parts in minutes that are more efficient and resilient than traditional supply chains allow.”

The use of the LightSPEE3D printer in one of Europe’s major ports is a milestone for SPEE3D and the region. Additive manufacturing is seen as a potential solution to pressing challenges such as supply chain issues and resource efficiency.

“The installation of the LightSPEE3D printer pursues the innovation path of alternative manufacturing and joining technologies whereby the goal of maritime research strategy can be accomplished in the next few years,” said Professor Dr.-Ing Shahram Sheikhi. “Through additive manufacturing, we expect a reduction of maintenance, repair, and conversion costs that can be ensured.”
