Project spotlight: SPEE3D fast on-site metal 3D-printing technology

09 December 2020

Enhancing Australia's sovereign capability in manufacturing

NERA has collaborated with technology developer SPEE3D, Charles Darwin University and Santos to support the development of a new high-speed, low-cost metal 3D printing technology specifically for the oil and gas industry.

This project is not only enhancing Australia's sovereign capability in manufacturing, but also translating world-leading research into a truly commercial opportunity. 

SPEE3D's technology is helping to move industry business structures from a costly 'ordering-warehousing' model to a faster and more efficient 'print-on-demand' scenario, and the SPEE3D printer is a game-changer for on-site, fast, high-volume parts that are crucial for Australia's energy resources sector.
