With a name like Metalysis, one can expect a lot of innovation in the ever-growing metal 3D printing field. Metalysis recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mkango Resources Limited, to work together on researching, developing, and commercializing novel rare earth metal alloys to make 3D printed permanent magnets. Mkango primarily explores in the Republic of Malawi, looking for rare earth elements and associated minerals. China is the major leader of the rare earth permanent magnet industry, but Mkango has one of the only rare earths projects not in China that's gone past the pre-feasibility stage, and is "well placed to respond to the global demand outlook." Rare earth permanent magnets are an extremely important component of many electric vehicles, and also other green and consumer technologies.
