Vader Systems provides superior 3D metal printing solutions that enable partners to build the Factory of Tomorrow 100x faster than existing market solutions with safer handling and less waste.
Vader Systems represents a revolutionary advancement in 3D printing — eliminating the many issues inherent in legacy processes. Vader’s patented Magnet-o-Jet™ technology utilizes the control and precision of an electromagnetic field to propel liquefied metals to produce high integrity parts, faster.
Unlike legacy 3D printing equipment, Vader Systems provides “engineered solutions” to meet the customer’s specific application needs. This is achieved through strong collaboration with the end user.
Vader’s patented Magnet-o-Jet™ technology is based on the study of Magneto Hydro Dynamics (MHD), or more simply: the manipulation of liquid metal through magnetism. MagnetoJet’s extraordinary physics are accomplished by depositing Aluminum wire into an 1200°C ceramic chamber, where it is influenced into a molten state. This molten media is then electromagnetically pulsed – causing a droplet to form and eject with precision from a carefully crafted ceramic nozzle.
The Vader System delivers 1000 droplets per second with micron level accuracy, while doubling the speed of conventional 3D powder bed metal printers. Aluminum was an intentional first step, but MagnetoJet will evolve to printing additional conductive metals and potentially thousands of printing heads within one machine.
Vader’s technology provides versatility. Magnet-o-Jet allows for the use of many allows including 4043, 4047, and 1100. In qualification are: 365, 6061, 7075, copper, and bronze.
