SPEE3D, a leading metal additive manufacturing business, has announced a collaboration with New Jersey Innovation Institute (NJII) to implement Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing technology at its facility. The WarpSPEE3D printer was purchased by the school and is now installed at NJII’s Advanced Manufacturing facility.

They will also provide training for students and the military on how to quickly print large-scale metal parts on demand through their Collaborative Operationalized Manufacturing Engineering Training (COMET) effort.

Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing Technology to New Jersey

NJII picked the WarpSPEE3D printer to help meet research manufacturing and industry supply chain demands, with a focus on workforce development training. The WarpSPEE3D is the world’s first large-format metal 3D printer to use patented SPEE3D technology, which allows for substantially faster and more scalable production than traditional manufacturing. It can create items weighing up to 40 kg (88 lbs) with a diameter of up to 1m by.7m (40″ x 30″) in hours rather than days. This high pace elevates metal printing from prototyping to a large-scale, on-demand manufacturing option.

“NJII’s Advanced Manufacturing facility was established to build a strong manufacturing workforce by providing hands-on experience with the latest equipment – including additive manufacturing technologies. We are evaluating the newest equipment for its potential capabilities in ideal settings such as NJII and remote locations where the military has pressing demands. The addition of the WarpSPEE3D printer will help accelerate these goals.”

– Sam Gatley, Director of Operations, NJII COMET Initiative

NJII was established in 2014 and brings together the huge resources of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), strong industry and government ties, and tried-and-true techniques for driving innovation and delivering revolutionary products and services. NJII promotes knowledge transfer and stimulates innovation, resulting in a beneficial economic impact in New Jersey.

The Advanced Manufacturing Facility, located at 360 Landing within NJII, is a 20,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing workforce development centre dedicated to making advanced manufacturing’s prospects to boost national security and readiness a reality. 

According to Byron Kennedy, CEO of SPEE3D, “SPEE3D has been fortunate to partner with some of the leading academic institutions worldwide, and we’re excited to partner with the New Jersey Innovation Institute and their COMET initiative to bring our Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing technology to both students and the local military. The partnership will allow them to bolster their manufacturing needs with the ability to print large-scale parts quickly that would otherwise not be available.”
