3D printing with a flowable metal paste is a novel idea. How is this done and what new technologies could unlock greater adoption by offering precision parts with faster lead times and lower costs? Metal 3D printing has held intriguing possibilities for several applications because of the opportunity to make optimized geometries that cannot be made with conventional methods. But until now, the adoption of metal 3D printing for very precise components has been limited. Mantle, a new precision metal 3D printing company that is focused on tooling applications, has spent 6 years developing its hybrid additive/subtractive technology and flowable metal paste materials. Scott Kraemer will give an overview of Mantle’s technology and several customer case studies of highly-precise parts, reduced lead times, and lower costs. Please join a technical presentation to further discuss how flowable metal paste works in a hybrid technology and applications that have been proven with this new technology. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Define how Mantle's technology works.
  • Describe Mantle's materials and what is in the metal paste.
  • Apply relevant applications for the metal technology for tooling components.
