Rapidia Inc, headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, has opened a new US facility in Innovation Park, just outside Chicago, Illinois, to showcase its Additive Manufacturing technology and serve its US customers. The Rapidia system uses a water-based metal paste AM process to produce parts in a range of materials, including stainless steel, Inconel, and ceramics.

The two-stage office friendly system consists of a metal printer and a sintering furnace. The use of water, instead of a typical binding element, eliminates a solvent-based debinding step and is said to result in a fast, simple to use system that is environmentally friendly and completely solvent-free. 

With the opening of its US facility, Rapidia also announced the appointment of Tim Ruffner as its new Head of North American Sales. Ruffner has a background in Additive Manufacturing, having previously worked for Desktop Metal, Concept Laser, Rize and Dynamism.
