Aurora Labs is making headway towards the commercialization of its RMP-1 metal 3D printer. In a significant step ahead, the company this week announced that it has supplied its first RMP-1 Beta system to AdditiveNow Pty Ltd. The partnership between the two companies was formalized through a finance lease agreement.

With the RMP-1 Beta system in operation at its facility, AdditiveNow will be better equipped to meet the demands of its clients in the production of cost-effective metal components. The company, also based in Australia, conducts training programs and offers engineering design services and sample part 3D printing for its customers with the aim of showcasing the benefits of additive manufacturing.

“This transaction is a demonstration of the unique value proposition of [Aurora’s] 3D metal printers, which lead the industry with their speed and technical capability,” said David Budge, Managing Director of Aurora. “This is a great result for Aurora on a number of levels. Importantly, we will generate revenue from the supply of this machine, as well as ongoing revenue from our share of the work it will do for AdditiveNow.”

The metal 3D printer will be installed at AdditiveNow’s facility in Bibra Lake in Western Australia. Once the AM system is operational, Aurora will continue to have access to the printer in order to monitor its usage and performance and to access real-time feedback from the production client. The feedback from AdditiveNow will be vital as Aurora Labs prepares to commercially launch its RMP-1 production model.

Rapid Manufacturing Technology

Aurora Labs’ metal 3D printing platform, Rapid Manufacturing Technology (RMT), is highly anticipated by the industry, as it has promised dramatically faster printing speeds than competing powder bed fusion systems on the market. This speed is owed to the process, which lays down multiple layers of powder at once (instead of layer by layer) and uses individual powder gates to allow printing to take place on multiple layers at once.

Recently, the company announced it had successfully tested its 3D printing system at a print speed of 350 kg/day, marking a 2000% increase over the system’s print rate just a year ago.
