Start year: 2019

Summary: SPEE3D has developed a revolutionary high speed, low cost, 3D printing process that can manufacture equivalent parts to casting processes. While the initial application of the technology lay in fabricating new parts, there is considerable interest from both mining and defence industries to be able to repair broken or worn parts. This project enables the deployment of automated supersonic 3D deposition repair technology in industry. Building upon SPEE3D’s supersonic 3D deposition technology and the core scanning technology developed on the earlier SPEE3D/IMCRC/UTS, the project will enable the identification and rectification of worn or broken parts.
