With all metal additive manufacturing processes, print speed and resolution are tightly coupled. Printing parts quickly comes at the price of resolution. Adding more lasers and energy sources creates diminishing returns. ​James and the founding team created Seurat in 2015 to create a future of unlimited scalability by decoupling the parameters of speed and resolution and unlocking access to potentially the full market of conventional manufacturing. And by doing so, Seurat will enable a future that is better for our people and planet.

Investing in Seurat’s AM Technology as a Pathway to Distributed Manufacturing and Industrial Decarbonization

📅 Date:

🔖 Topics: Additive Manufacturing

🏢 Organizations: Seurat Technologies, Xerox Ventures

Spun out of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Seurat Technologies has made its mission to break down the technical barriers of metal AM and facilitate a way for the approach to become a true successor to traditional manufacturing. Identifying the point-by-point raster-style printing method underlying all exiting laser-based metal AM as the key issue, co-founders James DeMuth (CEO) and Andy Bayramian (CSO) turned to the source of the problem — the laser.

Having already demonstrated their technology and rapidly scaling the method for industry use, Seurat is accelerating AM to deliver on its full potential. Their approach can enable production-level throughput without sacrificing resolution. Performance is maintained as well. Their approach facilitates full melt/full density part performance matching those produced by traditional metal forming methods like investment casting and forging. This unlocks new relevance to sectors like the auto industry which demand high precision and performance in both geometric tolerance and mechanical behavior at high production volumes.

🏢 Organizations: Seurat Technologies, Xerox

Seurat has already secured seven letters of intent to join its commercialization program from the world’s largest automotive, aerospace, energy, consumer electronics, and industrial companies, and expects to launch its first commercial programs this year. The additional funding will be used towards building Seurat’s production-grade system which is targeted to produce parts at $300/kilogram — comparable to parts produced by machining. By 2025, Seurat anticipates lowering manufacturing cost to $150/kilogram, which is comparable to castings. As Seurat grows, its tech will make the $1 trillion metal manufacturing market fully accessible to additive manufacturing.
