SPEE3D to Deploy Cold Spray Additive Manufacturing Tech at Naval Postgraduate School

The U.S. Naval Postgraduate School has selected SPEE3D to deploy XSPEE3D, its cold spray additive manufacturing technology at the Consortium for Additive Manufacturing Research and Education.

XSPEE3D will support military postgraduate students, doctorate candidates and research professionals working on additive manufacturing-based maintenance, repair and operations aboard surface and undersea vessels. Navy researchers will use the technology during military trials and exercises to test CSAM capabilities on the ground and on an amphibious vehicle.

The selection comes after CAMRE tested the WarpSPEE3D solution to print parts during the U.S. Marine Corps’ Integrated Training Exercise 4-23, SPEE3D said Wednesday.

The additive manufacturing company has been working with the U.S. military since 2022.

In May, it partnered with the Navy to deliver CSAM technology that would 3D-print submarine parts. During the 2022 Maintenance Technology Engagement exercise, the Navy selected the company to demonstrate how 3D printers could work inside bases and aboard ships.

CAMRE has likewise been demonstrating 3D printing capabilities aboard vehicles. During ITX 4-23, the consortium showed how the Advanced Manufacturing Operational System 3D printer, installed aboard an MV-22 Osprey, can create a medical cast while in flight.
