Press ReleasesHolo Introduces PureForm™ Technology for Metal Additive Manufacturing
Company on track to be among the world’s largest producers of production metal additive manufacturing parts in 2021
NEWARK, CA – Holo, the volume production additive manufacturing (AM) company, has launched its PureForm™ platform today to drive widespread adoption of metal 3D printing. In a first for the industry, Holo is producing high-performance pure copper parts directly for customers using its proprietary low-cost, high-resolution technology. The company is quickly ramping up to manufacture thousands of parts per month from their newly opened production facility in the Bay Area.
“Most companies developing additive technology are focused on selling their printers,” said Hal Zarem, CEO at Holo. “We are lowering the barriers to adoption by offering additively manufactured parts to our customers and addressing the largest sector of the AM market with finished parts”
“The challenge today with metal 3D printing, is that the technologies are either too expensive and unable to scale for production, or low resolution, which limit applications” said Arian Aghababaie, co-founder and chief strategy officer at Holo. “Holo’s PureForm™ technology enables us to produce high-resolution components directly for our customers, at a fraction of the cost of existing AM technologies and in production volumes.”
The company’s first commercial material is pure copper. At over $170B, copper is the third largest materials market in the world – a material widely used for its electrical and thermal conductivity properties. Although challenging for other metal additive manufacturing technologies, Holo has developed a 3D printable 99.9% pure copper material that retains the bulk conductivity properties of copper. This has enabled the company to focus on developing cooling solutions for the rapidly growing high-performance computer market, electric vehicles (inverters and e-motors), complex three-dimensional electrical interconnects, RF antennas and heat exchangers. Holo is also now sampling stainless steel to customers, opening up applications across a gamut of industries from aerospace to medical.
The company is quickly ramping up volume and has begun supplying parts from its 20,000-sq foot production facility in Silicon Valley, where it has capacity to produce tens of thousands of parts per month.
Holo is a volume production digital manufacturing company, based in Silicon Valley. Leveraging high-definition imaging technology and a metal injection molding-like back-end, Holo has developed a proprietary low-cost, high-resolution additive manufacturing (AM) platform to produce AM parts at scale. From the company’s facility in Newark California, Holo is lowering the barriers of adoption by producing high-performance parts directly for customers and is ramping up to manufacture thousands of production parts per month. Founded as a spin-out from Autodesk with leaders in the additive manufacturing industry, the company is backed by top-tier Silicon Valley investors. To learn more, visit www.holoam.com.
