The possibility of scientific cooperation
One of the most important challenges facing the development of science and industry is the formation of partnerships that foster interdisciplinary and international cooperation – for example, research project collaborations between companies and universities.
Over the past few years, AMAZEMET has participated in more than 30 consortia involving projects such as ESA-funded projects. The greatest value for partners who collaborate with AMAZEMET is the scientific support of Warsaw University of Technology. The specialists involved in these projects have extensive experience in material engineering, and they understand the need for research and development.
Involving amazemet in project collaboration comes with many benefits INCLUDING ACCESS to:
Laboratories fully equipped to perform atomization of nearly any alloying system
A highly-skilled interdisciplinary team eager to solve complex engineering problems
Expertise in fields related to material science, ultrasonic, and vacuum technologies, metal casting, additive manufacturing process
Access to additional resources at the Warsaw University of Technology
A 3D printing machine with integrated direct metal laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) technology dedicated to optimizing new materials
The possibility to fabricate metallic powders with tailored chemical compositions
Ultrasonic powder atomizer and alloy prototyping platform
rePowder is a research and development platform for the development of new printing materials using patented ultrasonic technology to create AM-grade powder.
– metal casting,
– powder production of metallic materials, starting with an arbitrary material form.
rePowder can atomize nearly any alloying system, and owing to its narrow PSD, approximately 80% of the output material is suitable for further selected processes.
The device can be equipped with both arc/plasma and induction melting modules, to cover the whole range of melting temperatures.
Multifunctional, laboratory-size, modular platform for metal printing material development

AUTOMATED METAL SUPPORT REMOVAL SYSTEM
safeEtch is a support removal and surface polishing device for metal alloys based on ultrasonically-assisted chemical etching.
During the etching process, the component reacts with the chemical solution, resulting in the dissolution of a uniform material layer throughout the entire volume of the processed part.
Proper support design and processing parameters provide quick and efficient removal of support structures. Ultrasonic agitation promotes uniformity during the process, even for complex geometries, such as scaffolds or internal cooling channels.

IT ALL STARTED WITH SCIENCE
A Ph.D. student needed 200 g of bulk metallic glass powder for his research on alloy design for selective laser melting powder bed fusion, but gas atomization services exceeded the project budget by two times. The solution was already out there, but it had been forgotten for 40 years – ultrasonic atomization. Upon rediscovering this technique, it was decided to build a new system and produce the powders in-house.
This is the story of AMAZEMET founder and inventor, Łukasz Żrodowski, and the origin of the company’s core mission: to broaden scientific possibilities in materials science and metal 3D printing by spreading knowledge and delivering novel tools for researchers worldwide.
This mission has grown over time, focusing on values such as sustainability, providing a closed-loop production chain for printing metal, and the development of industrial metal additive manufacturing (AM). Being both a production company and a Warsaw University of Technology spin-off, AMAZEMET combines the understanding of relevant fundamental science and academic environments with industrial processes and needs.
WHAT IS METAL ADDITIVE
Metal Additive Manufacturing, also known as 3D Printing, is a layer-by-layer fabrication process that has revolutionized the manufacturing industry. It offers a wide range of materials including metals such as titanium, and allows for the precise creation of complex geometries and shapes. This technology offers design freedom, making it an ideal solution for rapid prototyping and production of end-use parts.
Metal Additive Manufacturing Technologies
There are several metal additive manufacturing technologies available, including Metal Powder Bed Fusion, Direct Energy Deposition, and Binder Jetting. In Metal Powder Bed Fusion, fine metal powder is layered and then fused using a laser or electron beam. Direct Energy Deposition utilizes a thermal energy source to melt metal powder or wire, which is then deposited layer-by-layer to form a solid object. Binder Jetting involves the use of a binder to bind together layers of metal powder to form a solid object.
Advantages of Metal AM
One of the key advantages of Metal Additive Manufacturing is the ability to produce parts with complex geometries that would be difficult or impossible to create using traditional metal manufacturing processes. This design freedom has opened up new ways for innovation and product development, allowing for the creation of more advanced and efficient products. This advanced manufacturing technology is utilized in a variety of industries, including aerospace, medical, and automotive.
Another advantage of Metal Additive Manufacturing is the speed and efficiency of the production process. With traditional metal manufacturing processes, creating a prototype or end-use part can be a time-consuming and expensive process. In contrast, Metal Additive Manufacturing can produce a functional part in a matter of hours or days, making it an ideal solution for rapid prototyping and short-run production.
Metal powder in additive manufacturing process
One of the most important aspects of Metal Additive Manufacturing is the use of metal powders. The quality and purity of the metal powder used in the process have a significant impact on the final properties of the produced part. To ensure the highest quality and consistency, ones used in additive manufacturing are often manufactured to stringent specifications, with a focus on spherical metal powders that can improve flow behavior and process efficiency.
Freedom in Metal AM Development & production
In addition, there are various process parameters that can be adjusted in Metal Additive Manufacturing to achieve the desired properties in the final product. This includes controlling (for the LPBF type of process) the laser power, scan speed, layer thickness, and the spacing between layers. By optimizing these parameters, engineers can produce parts with improved mechanical properties and reduced porosity, leading to stronger and more durable parts. Metal AM is not limited to producing small parts and prototypes. With advancements in machine size and build capabilities, it is now possible to produce large and complex parts in a single build, making Metal Additive Manufacturing a viable solution for the production of end-use parts in a variety of industries.
