Seurat Technologies and Siemens Energy to Additively Manufacture 59 Tons of Metal Parts

Seurat Technologies, a 3D metal printing technology provider, has signed an agreement with Siemens Energy, to produce 59 tons of additively manufactured metal components for its turbines.

This development will ramp up over a six-year-period for parts meeting the material qualification requirements of Siemens Energy. The initial focus will be on one-part family, with the possibility of increasing volumes to include others in the future.

Manufacturing is one of the largest contributors of greenhouse gas emissions, responsible for 31 percent of emissions. With the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change continuing to sound the alarm on global warming in its recent report, the manufacturing industry has a significant responsibility to reduce its carbon footprint.

Seurat’s mission aims to decarbonize manufacturing using its Area Printing technology, a process that leverages 100 percent renewable green energy. While we are used to seeing a laser tediously sweep across a flat bed of powder to gradually sinter solid portions of a part’s layer, in Seurat’s Area Printing, the laser is splitted up into multiple beams and can process a large “area” simultaneously. That’s one of the reasons why the machine manufacturer said its process is faster than incumbent Laser Powderbed Fusion (LPBF) processes. This printing speed also makes it cost competitive to traditional metal working processes, such as casting.

The company states that its technology can reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to waste material, freight, transportation, and warehousing. It anticipates mitigating as much as 100 metric tons of CO2 by 2030 and has validated its carbon footprint forecast according to ISO 14064 standards.

More than just manufacturing, an investment

For Siemens Energy, the agreement goes beyond the manufacture of high-quality parts, the energy company has also invested cash in Seurat Technologies through its venture arm, Siemens Energy Ventures. Operating at the intersection of the corporate and startup ecosystems, Siemens Energy Ventures builds, pilots and invests in startups that are developing innovative energy and decarbonization technologies and business models.

Seurat’s partnership with Siemens Energy is a major milestone for 3D metal printing and our potential to deliver limitless scalability and cost savings,” said Seurat CEO and Co-Founder James DeMuth. “We are proud to be trusted by global leaders who are reimagining manufacturing. Volumes of this order of magnitude significantly move the needle towards greener technologies and unlocking additive manufacturing’s full potential.”
