High-Energy Nozzle Enables Spee3d Printing of Hard-Phase MaterialsJune 23, 2022
Spee3d has introduced the Phaser, a high-energy nozzle designed to work on Spee3d additive manufacturing machines with a wider range of hard-phase materials including stainless steel, titanium, high-strength aluminum and nickel-based carbides. The new nozzle allows for printing of materials that withstand severe conditions such as high stress, immense shock loads and abrasive environments.
The high particle velocity achieved with the Phaser nozzle means more deformation of the particles during the deposition process, which allows use of these harder, tougher materials, according to company officials. Users can print these materials with either compressed air or nitrogen. Using compressed air, the Phaser nozzle reportedly deposits material four times faster than the speed of sound at temperatures to 800 C.
Besides the hard-phase materials, Spee3d machines also print standard copper as well as aluminum-bronze and other aluminum materials.
