The 15th edition of Hightech Venture Days – the leading program in Europe focusing on financing start-ups in the area of advanced technologies – will take place on October 15 and 16, 2019. The event will take place in Dresden, Germany, where selected technology companies and a group of international investors will meet. 40 selected companies specializing in six key technologies (machine and device engineering, micro- and nanoelectronics, ICT, environmental and energy technologies, materials, natural sciences as well as transport and logistics) will present their companies to selected exhibitors. The final 40 included 3D Lab – one of the longest-operating distributors of industrial 3D printers on the market and the creator of the revolutionary metal atomizer – ATO Lab.

ATO Lab is the first device of this type in the world that allows atomization of small amounts of metal powders – the device was designed for research into new types of materials, but according to specialists from 3D Lab, the device has a chance to find application in a variety of applications. The technology of ultrasonic atomization of the material used in the device allows to achieve spherical particles with a diameter of 20 to 100 µm – the whole process is carried out in an atmosphere of shielding gas. The device is able to atomize materials such as aluminum, titanium, stainless steel or precious metals.

ATO Lab debuted at Formnext 2017, instantly becoming one of the sensations of this event. A year later, at the same trade fair event, 3D Lab presented a full technological line for metal atomization, starting the official sale of machines.

The main advantages of ATO Lab are:

  • high quality of obtained metal powders,
  • no restrictions on the minimum amount of powder prepared,
  • a wide range of materials that can be atomized,
  • relatively low production cost,
  • system scalability and flexibility of the manufacturing process.
