MatterFab’s 3D metal printer is an order of magnitude lower cost and has the same quality as million dollar metal 3D printers. This means that every industry can take advantage of the strengths and freedom of metal 3D printing. MatterFab has focused on lowering the total cost of ownership for industrial additive printing, pioneering lower machine, support, and material costs.
Matterfab significantly increases productivity in metal printing and complements existing CNC solutions. Metal 3D printing can deliver injection molds that double productivity for no additional cost, create custom medical implants, and save airlines billions in fuel costs every year through weight saving designs that can only be made with 3D printers.
MatterFab has developed the first commercial, US based, powder bed fusion metal 3D printer. MatterFab is bringing American ingenuity and leadership to metal 3D printing.
"3D Printing is going to revolutionize design and manufacturing in the 21st century," according to Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX. Matterfab is seen as the next step forward in that transition. Kim Brand of 3D Parts Manufacturing stated, “The next barrier faced by additive manufacturing is affordable 3D printing using a variety of metals. Make that ‘was.’ MatterFab has just crashed through that barrier.”
MatterFab (http://www.matterfab.com) was founded by Matt Burris and Dave Warren, two engineers with deep experience developing complex systems for the military. Matt’s passion for revolutionizing manufacturing comes from growing up in his family’s aerospace machine shop in Indianapolis. He has personally seen work from his family’s shop moved to 3D printing and is determined to lead this technology into the machine shops of tomorrow.
MatterFab’s team is experienced in lasers, optics, and industrial systems and our partnership with the experts of additive manufacturing at the University of Louisville have yielded a metal printer of unparallel value. MatterFab is based in San Francisco and is currently a part of Lemnos Labs hardware startup program. Please send your inquires to press(at)matterfab(dot)com
