MatterFab Reveals Their Affordable Metal 3D Printer, ‘An Order of Magnitude Cheaper’

The MatterFab 3D Metal Printer in ActionMetal 3D printing is the Holy Grail of additive manufacturing. Unlike with other materials that can be printed, metal enables manufacturers to create end-use objects via 3D printing, objects which oftentimes outperform those produced with traditional casting techniques. In fact General Electric and Airbus are already saving money money using metal laser sintering machines to produce parts for anything from aircraft, to fuel nozzles. Additionally, once those products are installed for end-use, they continue to save money because of their light weight, great strength, and precise fit. The reductions of just a few kilograms on board an aircraft can save thousands of dollars over the course of a year in fuel costs. Multiply this by an entire fleet of passenger planes all using hundreds of a particular part, and that equates to millions of dollars in annual savings.

There is a problem though. Multi-billion dollar corporations like General Electric and Airbus can afford the $1 million+ price tags for these machines, however, most smaller manufacturers find it too hard to even dream about owning one.

One San Francisco based company, MatterFab, founded by Mathew Burris and Dave Warren, want to change all this. This week they have brought their low cost industrial 3D metal printer out of stealth mode, giving hope to all those small manufacturers out there, who have aspirations of owning such a device.An Object Printed on a MatterFab Machine Their goal is to lower the barriers of entry for businesses within all industries, which they intend to accomplish by lowering machine, support, and material costs. The printer will be the first U.S. based powder bed fusion metal 3D printer to ever come to market.

It works by laying down metal powder. A high powered laser then melts that powder in certain precise locations based on a CAD file. Once one layer is melted, the printer will place another layer of metal powder on top, and the process repeats until an entire object is fabricated.

MatterFab CEO Matt Burriss, sat down recently with Ryan Lawler of Techcrunch, and discussed the printer in a bit more detail. What we learned from the interview, which is available at the bottom of this article, are several key details.

How much does a 3D metal printer cost?

In 2013, the least expensive base price for a metal 3D printer was 125k USD for an ExOne Lab Platform, ExOne machines run up to 1.4M USD. SLM Solutions machines ranged from 195k to 700k EU. Realizer were from 120k to 480k EU. Metal-sintering EOS machines were 189k to 415k EU. Concept Laser machines ran from 159k to 1.5M EU. Quite a range, but starting pretty darn expensive.
