Belgium-based ValCUN, a developer of metal Additive Manufacturing machines, has announced it will start taking pre-orders for its upcoming Minerva AM machine at this year’s RAPID-TCT in Chicago, USA, May 2-4 2023.
Utilising ValCUN’s proprietary Molten Metal Deposition (MMD) technology, the Minerva is said to enable rapid and cost-effective production of parts on-demand. The process uses wire as the feedstock, delivering a deployable, safe, and easy-to-use metal AM machine that delivers near-net-shape metal parts.
“We are excited to announce the start of pre-orders for our disruptive, deployable metal 3D printer,” stated Jonas Galle, CEO and Co-Founder of ValCUN. “Customers are stressing the need for an easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy solution that reduces post-processing and time-to-part, while remaining cost effective. We are glad to announce that the MMD technology delivers just that and are looking forward to supporting our customers in their metal AM utilisation.”
ValCUN, backed by several private investors, has previously received funding from ESA, the European Union, and the Flemish government. The company has already received several LOIs from manufacturing and research institutes in Europe and abroad.
“I have been following aluminium 3D printing technology for over 20 years, and with ValCUN technology, I believe for the first time that this 3D print technology can disrupt the industrial aluminium market,“ stated Piet D’Haeyer, CEO of Pedeo NV, a die casting company based in Oudenaarde, Belgium.
