Formalloy's Laser Metal Deposition Technology was recently featured in the November 2017 issue of The FABRICATOR® http://www.thefabricator.com/article/metalsmaterials/an-overview-of-laser-metal-deposition.
Formalloy has completed installation and training of the first L-series Laser Metal Deposition system at University of California - San Diego (UCSD)’s Department of Nanotechnology. The new L-series, which includes an inert gas build chamber, scientific monitoring capability and features a blue wavelength laser, was released earlier this year and can be used to 3D print, repair and clad metallic parts. This groundbreaking release positions Formalloy as the first company to deliver a Laser Metal Deposition with blue laser technology.
Formalloy has been selected to present 2 presentations at Inside 3D Printing in San Diego December 4-5, 2017. The topics include Robotic Integration of Laser Metal Deposition and a case study of a rocket nozzle demonstrator made for NASA-Marshall. Please contact us to learn more about these topics or presentations.
NASA has successfully partnered with Formalloy on a series of R&D projects to assist the space agency’s additive development efforts. NASA completed tensile and quality testing on Formalloy-printed samples built on the company’s A-series machine model. With virtually no material porosity and sufficient tensile strength, NASA is continuing R&D feasibility studies with Formalloy. “NASA is leveraging Formalloy's laser metal deposition technology for development and feasibility studies to investigate scalability of additive manufacturing for large, high value components. Laser metal deposition technology is being explored as an alternative to powder bed technology for key components such as rocket nozzles,” said Paul Gradl, NASA Senior Propulsion Engineer.
Formalloy's President & Founder, Jeff Riemann is presenting at SME's Smart Manufacturing Series on September 14, and Formalloy is exhibiting at SME's WesTec Conference September 12-14 in Los Angeles, CA. Contact us to request a free admission code for online registration.
California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC) Presents
Additive Manufacturing the Evolution of 3D Printing Lunch 'N Learn
June 23, 2017
Noon - 1:30 p.m.
Hosted by Formalloy:
2810 Via Orange Way, Suite A
Spring Valley, CA 91978
This no cost event is designed to give the small and medium-sized manufacturer an overview of the current state of Additive Manufacturing, new developments in technology and new trends manufacturers need to be aware of. It will focus on real world technologies and how they can be used to help improve productivity and grow. Lunch will be provided.
Formalloy's 3D metal printing technology utilizes Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) to create metallic parts to near-net shape, increasing the design envelope while providing a more economical solution than producing the same part with conventional methods. Formalloy's 3D printing systems enable reduced machining time and nearly eliminate material waste, particularly with high-value materials. 3D printing parts with Formalloy's process can provide design features that can’t be achieved with conventional manufacturing methods, such as internal cooling channels and multi-metal parts.
Formalloy's founder, Jeff Riemann, has been invited to speak at Space Tech Expo May 23 - 25, 2017 in Pasadena, CA. Speaker sessions are Free to attend! Check out the list of distinguished speakers here: http://www.spacetechexpo.com/visit/free-sessions-speaker-list
As we welcome 2017, thank you for your interest and business as we continue to grow Formalloy. We gained a lot of momentum in 2016 so we’re excited to begin 2017, build upon our existing capabilities and continue to develop valuable customer relationships.
A sample of our 2016 highlights and successes include:
• Release of the A222 3D Metal Printer with 5-axes of motion and build, repair, and cladding capabilities using our Metal Deposition technology
• Enhanced material expertise with Inconels, Hastelloys, Stainless Steels, Tool Steels and Hardfacing Alloys
• Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project
• Partnerships with local universities for advanced R&D projects
• Growing our 3D metal printing services business to a diverse set of customers like NASA, large tool manufacturers, maritime service businesses, and small technology companies
• Demonstrated capability to Department of Defense (DoD), the US Navy and several large commercial companies
• Exhibited at 3 major trade-shows: RAPID, FabTech, and Inside 3D Printing Conference
As we move forward into 2017, we will continue to demonstrate a commitment to our customers by providing an innovative and cost-effective solution to 3D metal printing, repair, and cladding using our Metal Deposition technology.

Thank you again. We wish you a safe and joyous 2017!
Formalloy is pleased announced an award as part of a Office of Naval Research (ONR) project! The project will be completed under collaboration with the UC San Diego Department of Nano Engineering's Materials Research Center, with Formalloy selected as the provider for a custom 3D metal printing machine. The machine is based on the Formalloy L-series Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) printer and will feature a short-wavelength laser. The Research Center has already been using samples printed on the machine for the purpose of performing microstructural analysis of advanced metallics produced by additive manufacturing.
Formalloy was recently the featured business in the San Diego Business Journal Innovation!
Formalloy will be exhibiting our 3D printer during FABTECH November 16-18, 2016 | Las Vegas Convention Center | Las Vegas, NV. Stop by to meet our President and Founder, Jeff Riemann, and to learn more about our additive metal process!
