Features & Benefits

Multi-Material 3D Printing

Our systems uses a pellet extruder with a positive displacement gear melt pump to enable 3D printing with metal, ceramic, plastic, and flexible materials in pellet form.

Faster Microwave Sintering

Our system provides up 90% reduction in sintering time by using specially designed non-resonant slotted waveguides and a granular susceptor material that evenly distribute microwave energy.

Microwave Digital Casting

Our system introduces a new, 3 step microwave digital casting process that can rapidly make metal parts without the limitations of other metal 3D printing technologies. The first step is to 3D print a sacrificial ceramic shell mold. The second step is to fill the ceramic shell mold with a metal powder and embed it in our granular susceptor material. The third step is to place the mold in our microwave furnace to melt the metal powder in the mold to generate a casted part.
