Fusion is a novel, patented 3d printing approach. Layers of powders are deposited then moved under a 500-tons cylinder (planned) to close a volume which is then pressurized and heated to extreme conditions under inert gas.

This allows not only the manufacturing of highly refractory objects, but also in-situ material production: deposit the proper mix of material and make it react in-place (e.g. Ta + C). Applications include thermal and high-velocity shielding tiles, and nozzle components.

Preliminary technical specifications:

  • - Build volume: 6” diameter, 6” height
  • - Pressing to >40 ksi (planned)
  • - Sintering to >1,600 Celcius

Price for 2 ksi version:
750k USD / 750k EUR / 1m CAD

Volcano is a patented approach that combines 3d printing and molten regolith electrolysis, allowing better efficiency than doing each separately.

It features a liquid-cooled hot-end, with 6 independant high-amperage motorized electrodes, and continuous pressurized raw material feeding.

Interchangeable nozzles allows processing different raw granules using the most appropriate material.

Preliminary technical specifications:

  • - Operating temp.: 1,600 Celcius
  • - Build volume: >50cm x 50cm x 50cm
  • - 500 ~ 1000 A per electrode
  • - 42 kW available power
  • - 6” diameter, 6” height nozzles
