Seurat Technologies to additively manufacture 59 tons of metal parts

In partnership with Siemens Energy and targeting critical parts for energy transition

Seurat Technologies entered an agreement to develop 59 tons of additively manufactured metal components for Siemens Energy turbines. Development will ramp up over a six-year period for parts meeting the material qualification requirements of Siemens Energy. The initial focus will be on one part family, with the possibility of increasing volumes to include others in the future.

Manufacturing is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, responsible for 31 percent of emissions. With the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change continuing to sound the alarm on global warming in its recent report, the manufacturing industry has a significant responsibility to reduce its carbon footprint. The Biden Administration is also calling for the reduction of industrial emissions, recently unveiling a $6 billion effort to decarbonize industrial manufacturing and accelerate new technologies critical to a winning climate strategy.

Seurat Technologies to additively manufacture 59 tons of metal parts, in partnership with Siemens Energy and targeting critical parts “Siemens Energy is always looking for innovative technologies that can transform the future while creating a more sustainable world,” said Siemens Energy Head of Venture Building Enrique Gonzales Zanetich. “We’re excited about our future printing high-quality parts with fantastic economies of scale to deliver cost savings. We invested in Seurat Technologies and believe that strengthening our partnership could help to accelerate decarbonization in the industry at scale.”

Breakthrough technologies such as Seurat’s Area Printing reimagine manufacturing by enabling 3D printing to be competitive to conventional methods in every way (cost, scale, and quality) while leveraging 100 percent renewable green energy. Siemens Energy uses 3D printing to produce a number of components in instances where it provides a more sustainable process and improved economics.

Siemens Energy has also invested in Seurat Technologies through its venture arm, Siemens Energy Ventures. Operating at the intersection of the corporate and startup ecosystems, Siemens Energy Ventures builds, pilots and invests in startups that are developing innovative energy and decarbonization technologies and business models.

“Seurat’s partnership with Siemens Energy is a major milestone for 3D metal printing and our potential to deliver limitless scalability and cost savings,” said Seurat CEO and Co-Founder James DeMuth. “We are proud to be trusted by global leaders who are reimagining manufacturing. Volumes of this order of magnitude significantly move the needle towards greener technologies and unlocking additive manufacturing’s full potential.”

Seurat’s Area Printing can competitively displace some types of traditional manufacturing and reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to waste material, freight, transportation, and warehousing. Seurat anticipates mitigating as much as 100 metric tons of CO2 by 2030 and has validated its carbon footprint forecast according to ISO 14064 standards.

“Seurat is part of an emerging wave of Massachusetts additive manufacturers that are utilizing revolutionary processes, materials, and a world-class workforce to dramatically impact global industries, as shown by this new partnership,” said Christine Nolan, director of the Center for Advanced Manufacturing at MassTech, an economic development agency for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. “Companies like Seurat are what makes Massachusetts the top innovation economy and a global leader in advanced manufacturing.”

Last fall, Seurat announced that its pilot factory is fully subscribed and is planning on opening a full-scale production factory to accommodate customer demand. Seurat has raised $91.5 million from investors such as Capricorn’s Technology Impact Fund, True Ventures, and Porsche Automobil Holding SE, and has more than 209 patents granted and pending.
