Metal 3D printing is becoming big business.  Using metal links that allows for the production of complex and essential components in every industry, from aerospace to medicine. One or most advanced metal ink printers has currently being developed by George Kriel.

Kriel, who has a background in mechanical engineering and precious metals, says, “Our focus has been on precious metals and we have developed and formulated several precious metal inks such as pure Gold, 18ct white/yellow and rose Gold, Pure Silver/930 Silver, Pure Palladium/950Palladium and are finalising a pure Platinum and 950Platinum ink.“
