Advanced Manufacturing

Charles Darwin University logo
SPEE3D logo

Charles Darwin University (CDU) has partnered with SPEE3D to form the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance, a joint initiative to utilise a world-first 3D metal printing technology.

Through collaboration, the Alliance will engage with industry partners, trades and academics to:

  • Develop real-world applications
  • Create industry procedures and standards
  • Drive material development.

The potentially transformative technology in the LightSPEE3D machine allows bulk 3D copper parts to be printed in minutes at competitive manufacturing cost. CDU is looking to work with others to drive the research to find useful applications for this new copper manufacturing technique.
