Aurora is targeting print speeds of one tonne of material deposited per day

For now, Aurora is taking things slow - by its standards - with its large format metals 3D printing technology prototype now able to print simple parts at a printing rate comparable to existing technology in the market, but much slower than the theoretical printing speed being targeted by the company.

It is a critical milestone for Aurora, the Australian start-up we first uncovered in 2014 with its sub £3k offering is now aiming for producing truly large parts at speed - printing masses at a tonne a day.

“When we talk about printing simple parts slowly, this is equivalent to the same speed of other metal 3D-printers currently in the market, while printing complex parts rapidly is targeting speeds that are approximately 100 times faster than existing 3D-printers,” said Aurora managing director David Budge.
