Sakuú, formerly known as KeraCel, is an industrial solutions provider that has developed a major breakthrough in additive manufacturing (AM) technology to address the approximately $800 billion digital manufacturing transformation.
Sakuú is transforming 3D printing with multi-material AM solutions enabling complex active electro-mechanical devices.
Sakuú was founded in 2016 by Robert Bagheri. The company is headquartered in San Jose, California.
Sakuú's flagship Sakuu AM platform is the world’s first multi-material, multi-method AM solution for agile, cost-effective, high-volume production of complex functional devices. This enables manufacturers within the energy sector to achieve significant improvements in the cost, performance and range of current solid-state battery options.
Sakuú printed the world’s first fully ceramic SSB battery as an early demonstration of its second generation ASSB. Sakuú is targeting up to twice the energy density and 30% less weight in the same volume when compared with today’s Li-Ion batteries.
Sakuú’s second generation ASSBs, expected to be in full commercial production in 2023, will leapfrog competitive technologies and accelerate the adoption of SSBs in electric vehicles and other devices.
Sakuú closed a follow-on financing round on Oct 07, 2021, bringing total funds raised to date to $62M. Backers included Musashi Seimitsu Industry, Tessellate Ventures, and others.
