Aurora Labs, an Australian 3D printing company believes that the next step for them is to print complex designs at market speed (the standard speed of a machine of comparable size with the ability to print titanium at a rate of 81.7g/hr (1.96kg/day)). Initial tests achieved speeds equivalent to 662g/h (15.88kg/day) and the company says that this “proves out at a fundamental level, the potential for the technology to revolutionise the metal manufacturing market”
The tests were done using the company’s Large Format Technology (LFT) machine. Currently it has a build envelope of 200 x 200 x 200mm, with a print speed of 1000kg/day. They intend to increase the printing scale and speed which will lead to a planned commercialisation of LFT.
