Holo, a company specializing in metal additive manufacturing, has released its H200 production printer. The new system enables the company and its partners to scale up to high-volume manufacturing with industry-leading dimensional accuracy and surface finish for end-use quality.
The H200 employs Holo’s proven PureForm lithographic, high-resolution printing approach. The platform consistently delivers precise parts at a cost point that offers economic advantages from single prototypes to full-scale production runs of millions.
Over the past nine months, Holo has been leveraging the H200 in its AM services – supplying complex metal parts with industry-leading resolution and precision. The components exhibit detail as fine as 50µm and maintain tight tolerances within +/-25µm or +/-0.1% on a dimension. Unique to PureForm, the final parts match the surface smoothness of commercial MIM parts, with a roughness of 1-3µm Ra – eliminating the need for additional machining or polishing that other metal AM technologies require.
Beyond quality, the H200 excels in scalability. The system rapidly produces complex geometries like the dental abutment displayed below in just eight seconds per part, while maintaining tight tolerances across part runs of hundreds of parts.
Holo’s PureForm commercial material offering currently includes stainless steel grades 17-4PH and 316L, along with pure copper. The portfolio is extending to include Inconel and Ti-64 on a pre-commercial basis. All commercial materials from Holo meet the MPIF-35 specifications.
“True to CAD from Holo’s technology means that our H200 system produces MIM-quality parts without the mold,” said Arian Aghababaie, Co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Holo. “For most applications, our technology does not require parts to go through any post-machining or polishing; it sinters parts to spec for a first-time-right approach suited for demanding, high-volume end-use applications.”
A dental abutment, for example, offers a clear look at H200-made quality. The dental abutments, which required no polishing or machining to be functional parts, were created at 8s/part on the H200 and feature functional male and female threads with 200µm thread pitch.
Built on multiple generations of systems and with over 10,000 parts shipped to customers to date, Holo has proven the H200’s readiness for commercial use. Customers in demanding sectors including medical, aerospace and defense, consumer electronics, and the semiconductor industry are turning to PureForm technology.
“We are thrilled for customers to gain access to the H200,” said Hal Zarem, CEO of Holo. “Production volumes of parts in fields like surgical instruments will be within reach, finally fulfilling the promise of additive manufacturing as a scalable, production-ready suite.”
The H200 is available now as a turnkey solution, with key specs including a build volume up to 244 x 195 x 200 mm; resolution down to 50µm features; onboard software; compatibility with standard MIM furnaces, 240V; and no hazardous powder handling/inert atmosphere setup required.
