US startup SUN METALON develops fast metal 3D-printer and receives 5.6 million investment

SUN METALON Inc., a startup company developing a metal 3D printer, announced the procurement of US$5.6 million in its pre-series A funding round. The funds were raised from new investor GLOBIS CAPITAL PARTNERS & Co., along with existing investors UTEC (The University of Tokyo Edge Capital Partners Co., Ltd.), D4V (Design for Ventures), and Berkeley SkyDeck Fund (associated with the University of California, Berkeley). This new round of fundraising brings the total investment in SUN METALON to US$7.7 million.

With its unique ultra-high-speed metal 3D printing technology — up to 500 times faster than the conventional machines — originating in Japan, SUN METALON aims to create a world where metal products can be produced from local ores anywhere in the world. The company will expand its business globally to democratize metal 3D manufacturing, and contribute to the shift into the next age of industrialization.
