Amaero's New U.S. Facility Commissions SP500 and SP100 AmPro Machines

Amaero International Limited, a provider of metal additive manufacturing (AM) technology, recently celebrated the release of its first AmPro SP500 and SP100 machines in the U.S. at its new facility in El Segundo, CA. Amaero exclusively offers the AmPro line of machines in North America and offers the SP500, SP100 and their ancillaries.

The AmPro SP500 is particularly suited to the manufacture of steel tooling. "It has a large build area of 500 mm x 250 mm x 250 mm with minimal factory floor impact compared to traditional machine tool options. This is made possible through features such as removable build cartridges, which enable fast build changeovers," said a company spokesperson.

Designed to be easy to use and maintain, the AmPro SP100 is suitable for research and development, academia, teaching and low volume production. It has a smaller laser powder bed fusion platform with a build envelope of 100 mm diameter and 80 mm in build height.

CEO Barrie Finnin said, "This is a significant milestone in our company's overall growth strategy as we are now able to really accelerate our sales strategy. Having the AmPro SP500 and SP100 operational for the first time has marked the start of our machine sales in the U.S.

General Manager of U.S. Operations Shawn Zindroski said, "Historically, AM systems have had high capital costs, but with the new AmPro SP500 equipment we can scale to higher volumes and adopt multiple systems at once. The SP100 technology gives us the ability to test, validate and develop our internal parameters set for our existing powder alloys. Importantly, as the metal powder market continues to evolve, we will have a platform to test new alloys easily and to scale for our customer production runs. The ancillary equipment also allows us to process powder in a closed loop inert environment, separating the technician from airborne power. This is critical to OH&S standards and product quality."
