Vitriform3D utilizes recycled glass as a feedstock in powder bed 3D printing. While glass is infinitely recyclable, over 8 million tons of glass in the U.S. go to landfills each year due to low raw material value. Vitriform3D has developed a patent-pending binder jet technology (BJT) that enables the use of recycled glass in large-scale 3D printing. This platform technology leverages glass’s natural wear resistance and optical properties, printing durable glass composite products with high resolution and virtually unlimited part geometries. The most promising initial market is tooling for the marine industry, where large-scale BJT has the potential to reduce production time and manual labor input dramatically. By locating in the Oak Ridge/Knoxville area, we are well-positioned to access the marine tooling industry and get critical feedback as we further develop our technology.
