M Aerospace RTC: Austin-Based Startup Specialized In Metal 3D Printing
Founded in 2018 in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, M Aerospace launched its operations in the United States in August, 2021 by joining the International Accelerator's program.
M Aerospace RTC is an IA portfolio company focused on developing the next generation of affordable, large metal 3D printers in an industry that is constantly growing.
In 2021, after winning several awards, such as the Santander Global X Award (Startup Building competition), the Engineering Innovators of the Year by North America Business, and being finalists at the Mass Challenge and Rice Business Competitions, M Aerospace moved its headquarters to Austin and launched in the US market.
M Aerospace specializes in metal 3D printing technologies and contract manufacturing services. What's unique about their patented metal 3D printer, called "Armdust 2.0", is the ability to print large metal parts (up to 2x2 meters long - 6.5ft x 6.5xft long) and combine metal materials like aluminum and nickel on a single part. Besides the sale of the 3D printers, M Aerospace also offers contract manufacturing services, 3D modelling and prototyping, and the sale of 30+ available materials. Through their Augmented Reality app, customers can get frictionless online quotations, real-time tracking of their order and a smart guide on 3D printing technology and on how to use their printers.
M Aerospace is growing at 200% year-over-year, and its co-founder and CEO Juan Munguia (an Aeronautical engineer with a Master's degree in Aerospace Design and a Forbes 30 under 30 nominee) is seeking for $300,000 through a SAFE instrument. This would help them speed up the manufacturing process, grow their team, have printers in stock ready for delivery and maximize their marketing efforts in the US.
