Digital Alloys Develops Multi-Metal 3D Printing


Boston-based Digital Alloys spun out of New Valence Robotics in early 2017. New Valence, founded in 2013 by a team of MIT-educated engineers, offers 3D printers, cloud software, and integration solutions. It shipped its first printer in 2016. Another MIT engineer, Duncan McCallum, served as the CEO of New Valence in the months leading up to the spinoff and now works as the CEO of Digital Alloys, which focuses on multi-metal additive manufacturing (AM).

High Speed, Low Cost


PolyJet modeling, an AM technology used by companies like Stratasys and 3D Systems, can use multiple materials, but no metals. GE Additive, 3D Systems, and Sciaky all build metal 3D printers that use a variety of technologies to print a range of metals, including aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, bronze, and cobalt chromium, but they cannot mix metals into a single part. Digital Alloys’s 3D printers can do this, optimiz…
