Elementum 3D, Erie

Additive manufacturing (AM, also known as 3D printing) has grown over the last decade from a niche technology to a production process used across every industry. However, printing of metal-based components is challenging due to the limited selection of proven materials. The Elementum team has introduced 6 new materials to the metals additive market and anticipates releasing three new materials each year. Elementum's AM materials not only meet the properties of forged materials but also surpass them. Join us to learn more about Elementum 3D's facilities, research, and plans!
