Presentation Summary

3D Printing technologies offer great potential to increase the degrees of freedom in product design. In addition, the ability to distribute manufacturing closer to the end use customer also offers the opportunity to optimize the flexibility, efficiency and cost structure of traditional supply chains. However, most 3D printing technologies are very slow compared with large scale manufacturing processes such as injection molding. Architected Materials is advancing a technology that fits between the speed but relative inflexible high speed manufacturing technologies, and slow but highly flexible emerging 3D printing technology. We can produce highly architected 3D cellular/lattice materials in less than 60 seconds. Such complex structures are difficult to produce using existing technology and 3D printing similar structures. We will describe this new process and demonstrate examples of commercial applications for our novel lattice materials

Company Profile (Architected Materials)

Architected Materials logo
Architected Materials is an advanced materials manufacturing company focused on enhancing high-performance 3D products using our patented and innovative technology, Architected Lattice. We enable manufacturers to design and build faster, lighter, more cost effective products of tomorrow by leveraging the power and flexibility of Architected Lattice. Our technology was originally developed by HRL Laboratories (formerly the Howard Hughes Research Laboratory) for use in Aerospace and advanced automotive applications. We are now developing micro-lattice products for us in sporting goods (Skis, hockey sticks, helmets), medical and other market applications. Through our ability to architect the material shape, we greatly expand the functionality of traditional cellular materials
