FORT WORTH, TX–At the RAPID + TCT conference here, Vader Systems this week announced three unique offerings based on its patented Magnet-o-Jet technology. These system solutions have been designed to address the ever-evolving needs of the rapidly growing metal additive manufacturing market.
The solutions include the Vader Polaris liquid metal 3D printing system, The Magnet-o-Jet Subsystem for hybrid manufacturing equipment integration and the Ares Microsphere Production System. These innovative offerings provide customers with greater flexibility to deploy the power of Vader’s liquid metal printing technology to create the products of the future.
Vader works collaboratively with customers to understand their unique application needs and is positioned to create customized solutions. This intuitive approach delivers engineered solutions that are cost-effective while satisfying unique customer requirements that can be solved by the Vader technology platforms. “Our new technology platforms emphasize Vader’s unique ability to be the agile additive solution for the market.” Vader Systems President Scott Vader said.
The Polaris is a turnkey system used to transform metal 3D parts from conceptualization to actualization utilizing Vader’s patented liquid metal process. Vader is excited to announce that it can now print the most sought-after aluminum alloys in the market, including 6061 and 7075. Producing parts at rapid speeds with low-cost material and virtually no waste creates high value for customers. These advantages are compounded when also considering the safety of utilizing non-hazardous input materials, which stand in strong contrast to the substantial requirements that come with operating a powdered metal 3D printing machine.
The Magnet-o-Jet Subsystem is designed to integrate into hybrid manufacturing systems such as CNC and machine center equipment. By eliminating the use of powdered metal, the Magnet-o-Jet system allows manufacturers to produce parts and precisely finish them all in one system. Vader collaborates closely with customers to assure its Magnet-o-Jet subsystem is customized to work within existing or planned equipment and workflow. As with the Polaris System, the benefits are significant—including isotropic material properties, enhanced safety, and finished parts with full density.
The Ares Microsphere Production System produces highly uniform and consistent metal microspheres for on-demand usage. The Vaderite microspheres have been tested by a leading national lab and show best-in-class results. Printing microspheres on demand eliminates the need to carry powder inventory and enables a wide variety of small batch applications. The microspheres are extremely consistent with a very narrow particle size distribution. These attributes allow for excellent flowability, nearly 100% material usage, and more reliable results.
Design, development, manufacturing, and customer support are located at Vader’s Buffalo, NY, headquarters.
