LAKE MARY, Fla-(Business Wire)-Fonon Corporation’s (OTCQB:MBMI)(“Fonon”) 3D metal additive manufacturing systems are designed around the end-user’s application optimized for a specific metal NANO-powder. Each 3D FUSION™ system incorporates application specific laser beam shaping techniques and temperature processing profiles to address the unique density, melting point and thermal expansion properties of the end-user’s desired metal material.  With new processing innovations, end-users reduce the risk of undesirable anomalies like micro-fractures or inconsistent variations from unit-to-unit.  Coupled with Fonon’s proprietary FiberFUSE™ additive manufacturing laser, end-users have new tools to control density and beam-spot size with the industry’s fastest through-put rate with laser wattages up to 2KW.

 Metal Density: (kg/m3) Melting Point: (°C) Coefficient of Expansion:
10-6 m/m/oK
Aluminum 2712 660 22.2
Titanium 4500 1670 8.6
Stainless Steel 7740 1510 17.3
Inconel 8497 1408 12.6
Nickel 8908 1453 13.0

NANO-powder metals have different densities, melting points and thermal expansion rates.  The technical specification and quality requirements of each industry application is different.  Each of Fonon’s 3D FUSION™ metal printing systems are optimized for the desired metal type designed around the unique requirements of each end-user’s application from a bottom’s up approach matching the dynamics of the application to the best-fit 3D printing technique.  Fonon’s 3D FUSION™ systems with laser beam shaping and temperature processing profiles coupled with the industry’s first FiberFUSE™ additive manufacturing laser provide pioneering technology advancements ensuring the consistent, uniform melting of the metal NANO-powder while improving long-term product reliability.
