Formnext 2022 flashback: Uniformity Labs, CEO Adam Hopkins on LPBF materials for 3D printing

January 9, 2023


By Adam J. Penna

During Formnext 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany, Adam Penna had a quick chat about Additive Manufacturing (AM) materials with Uniformity Labs, CEO Adam Hopkins on Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) for metal 3D printing. Adam Hopkins gives a little more insight on their new material parameter set: 90micron 316L Ultra High Speed and what makes Uniformity Labs material process unique.

Topics include:
0:10 – Adam Hopkins, CEO at Uniformity Labs during Formnext 2022 in Frankfurt, Germany
0:18 – Recent news: Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) material parameter set: 90micron 316L Ultra High Speed
1:00 – What makes Uniformity Labs material process unique? Ultra-dense materials that double the throughput without compromise to mechanical properties.

Adam Hopkins

Adam is an entrepreneur and scientist focused on the commercialization of breakthrough technologies in the physical sciences and novel materials. He is a founder of and since its inception has served as CEO of Uniformity Labs, a rapidly growing additive manufacturing materials, printing, and software company born out of IP conceived and developed by himself and Princeton professor Salvatore Torquato. He has led technical and business teams at venture backed high-tech startups developing novel thermoelectric, photonic, and phononic materials, and he is the author of several materials and manufacturing processes patents, including on the topics of granular media density enhancement, additive manufacturing print processes, thermoelectric design and production, and phononic attenuation. He earned his Ph. D. in Theoretical Chemistry from Princeton, where he was awarded a Charlotte Elizabeth Proctor Honorific Fellowship and the Ray Grimm Memorial Prize in Computational Physics. Adam obtained his bachelor’s degree also at Princeton (cum laude) in Physics, with minors in Materials Science and Applied Mathematics.

Uniformity Labs produces engineered powders and materials that help customers realize substantial quality and efficiency improvements in additive and conventional manufacturing at scale using its ground-breaking, high-density metal powders and advanced manufacturing processes expertise. Delivering part production readiness across a large and growing portfolio of materials. Its patented technology uniquely enables groundbreaking improvements in throughput and reductions in residual stress across materials and platforms in laser powder bed fusion printing. In Binder Jetting, Uniformity powders deliver fully dense parts with minimal sintering shrink, resulting in the ability to manufacture to otherwise unobtainable high precision, material mechanical properties, and part surface roughness.
