About Fabric8Labs: Fabric8Labs has created the world’s first non-thermal 3D metal printer. Using Stereo-Electrochemical Deposition (SED) technology, their process eliminates the need for metal powders, vacuum chambers and lasers and can produce objects in a variety of solid metals that are an order of magnitude cheaper than current metal printing technologies.

About Formalloy: Formalloy is a 3D metal printing company which utilizes Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) technology and serves the Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) market. Their 3D printing systems are revolutionizing how high-value, complex components are made and repaired. Formalloy’s LMD technology is faster, more scalable, more efficient and more flexible than other additive metal technologies. In addition, their process provides design features that cannot be achieved with conventional manufacturing methods, such as internal cooling channels and multi-metal parts, thereby bringing ultimate flexibility to metal additive manufacturing.
