Build Share™ lowers the barriers to entry and helps you realize the value of AM today

We developed the Build Share™ program and partnered with Zenith Tecnica to provide a turn-key solution for Titanium 6Al-4V components.

Why Titanium 6Al-4V? This lightweight, high strength alloy is corrosion resistant and has a low coefficient of thermal expansion. These attributes make it well suited for multiple industries and challenging environments.

Why E-PBF? Electron Beam Melting (E-PBF, EBM) is a form of powder bed fusion which uses an electron beam instead of a laser to locally melt powder. The energy source requires a vacuum to operate, resulting in a clean process with reduced thermal distortion. This powerful technology, when combined with Ti 6Al-4V, brings a broad set of capabilities to the table. To learn more about this technology visit our Reports page.

What Products Make Sense? The Build Share™ program is for products ranging from 40mm to 400mm in height and order quantities from 1s to 100s. It is ideally suited for development of new products or for optimized designs of existing titanium, aluminum, or stainless steel applications.

Lower Your Costs with Build Share

Additive Manufacturing enables unique geometries that would be difficult or impossible to fabricate otherwise. Build Share™ reduces the time and costs associated with solo builds, supplier qualification, and development of design guidelines.

Since identifying the right application for production can be a challenge, Hummingbird Additive created a comprehensive training course that is included with the Build Share™ program.
