SPEE3D has partnered with Missouri University of Science and Technology (S&T) to bring metal additive manufacturing technology to the school’s Kummer Institute Center for Advanced Manufacturing. The school has purchased the WarpSPEE3D printer to address research manufacturing and industry supply chain needs, such as replacing castings and forgings. Additionally, there will be an emphasis on workforce development training for students.

The WarpSPEE3D will be located in the Center for Aerospace Manufacturing Technologies on campus, with plans to showcase it at the new Missouri Protoplex opening in 2025. This state-of-the-art facility will merge the local manufacturing needs of businesses and academia – serving as a hub for researching new materials, prototyping and testing new manufacturing processes, developing workforce competencies, and solving multi-discipline problems required to bring integrated cyber-physical manufacturing systems into practical use.

SPEE3D's WarpSPEE3D gives academia and businesses access to AM technology through Missouri University of Science and Technology.

“SPEE3D has been grateful to partner with leading academic institutions worldwide, and we’re thrilled a forward-thinking academic institution like Missouri S&T will bring the printing capabilities of the WarpSPEE3D to their students and the community. The partnership will showcase our unique cold spray technology, giving academia and businesses the ability to print large-scale parts quickly that would otherwise not be available,” said Steven Camilleri, Co-founder and CTO of SPEE3D.

Missouri S&T specifically chose WarpSPEE3D to better understand the company’s proprietary metal cold spray technology and to address the immediate needs of the industry on a larger scale. WarpSPEE3D is the world’s first large-format metal 3D printer to use patented SPEE3D technology that enables significantly faster and more scalable production compared to traditional manufacturing. The system builds parts up to 40kg (88 lbs) and up, with a diameter of up to 1m x 700mm (3’ x 2.5’), in a matter of hours.

“The manufacturing academia community is quickly adopting new technologies such as additive manufacturing to train the future of the workforce and address real-world supply chain business needs. Understanding the capabilities of SPEE3D’s WarpSPEE3D printer will help us address different use cases for industry needs such as castings and forgings, which will help drive lower lead times, and drive domestic US manufacturing, including locally here in Missouri,” said Bradley Deuser, assistant research professor and manufacturing engineer at the Kummer Institute Center for Advanced Manufacturing at Missouri University of Science and Technology.
