NUBURU & Essentium develop a blue laser-based metal AM

NUBURU® (NUBURU) and Essentium Inc. (Essentium) announced a partnership to develop and manufacture a blue laser-based metal AM platform. The new Essentium printer will enable manufacturers to create production-grade metal parts with high resolution and fast throughput.
Under the multi-year, multi-million-dollar agreement, Essentium may integrate NUBURU’s proprietary blue laser technology with its High Speed Extrusion (HSETM) 3D Printing technology for product development in the first phase, and manufacturing in the second phase. The new AM platform is designed to deliver breakthrough throughput for extremely high part quality and broad-scale use in major industrial markets, including automotive, aerospace, and defense.
As a part of the contract, NUBURU will also license its core 3D printing application patents, “Methods and systems for welding copper using blue laser” US10,940,562B2 and JP2019562226A.
NUBURU’s blue laser technology enables printing with 10× the build speed and the ability to print with a very high metal density without any post processes.
Essentium’s HSE 3D Printing Platforms have transformed traditional manufacturing, giving its customers an industrial-scale additive manufacturing solution that allows them to generate production floor-ready parts at scale quickly and cost-effectively.
