In a new approach, objects may be printed all at once. The connection to pointillism is how the laser used to sinter powdered material is distributed into many individual rays. Leading this breakthrough is the Wilmington, Mass.–based Seurat Technologies—named after the painter himself—which can create metal objects with a laser of 2.3 million pixels.

“Designing for a specific manufacturing process is a nuisance at best, and impediment at worst,” explained DeMuth. “Seurat essentially evens the playing field where designs don't have to have specific characteristics in order to leverage AM. If part fabrication cost can be competitive to traditional fabrication, then engineers don't need to create a business case for AM based on part consolidation.”

The origin of this process, trademarked “Area Printing”, goes back to 2009. That was when James DeMuth, having finished his master’s degree in mechanical engineering at Stanford University, started work at the National Ignition Facility, part of the American Department of Energy’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (llnl). This uses some of the world’s most powerful lasers to study nuclear fusion.

Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, has been around in one shape or form for a while. There has been a lot of interest in 3D printing for easing supply chain congestion, especially when it comes to small spare parts. Well, 3D printing’s next big act could be large metal objects.

Seurat hopes to differentiate itself with two key messages: a focus on electrifying its equipment depots using wind and solar power and the ability to create high-resolution parts at higher speeds than competitor technologies. It is working with at least eight customers, including a top automakers. Investors including Porsche and Siemens Energy see value in migrating casting processes that typically are powered by natural gas and coke to its approach.

Seurat, the startup that wants to commercialize its highly productive metal 3D printing technology, wants to go green. The company has developed a diode laser manufacturing process, dubbed Area Printing, that uses optical addressable light valves to scan and print an entire layer of metal powder bed in a single go.

Carpenter Additive's Vice President, Ben Ferrar, is joined by James DeMuth, Co-Founder & CEO at Seurat Technologies. Seurat's area printing process focuses 2 million points of laser light on a bed of metal powder, each point fully controllable to create fully melted net-shaped metal components. James describes how he and the company saw an opening in the industry for a new way of thinking and jumped into it.
