Velo3D is a metal 3D printing technology company. 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), has a unique ability to improve the way high-value metal parts are made. However, legacy metal AM has been significantly limited in its capabilities since its invention nearly 30 years ago. This prevented the technology from being used to create the most valuable and impactful coins, limiting its use to specific niches where the limitations were acceptable.
Velo3D has overcome these limitations so engineers can design and print the parts they want. The company’s solution unlocks design freedom and enables customers in space exploration, aviation, power generation, energy and semiconductors to innovate the future in their respective industries. Thanks to Velo3D, these customers can now build critical metal parts that were previously impossible to manufacture. The end-to-end solution includes Flow print preparation software, the Sapphire range of printers and the Assure quality control system, all powered by Velo3D’s Intelligent Fusion manufacturing process. The company delivered its first Sapphire system in 2018 and has been a strategic partner for innovators including SpaceX, Honeywell, Honda, Chromalloy and Lam Research.
