ExOne and rapid prototype + manufacturing (rp+m) have collaborated on a new bonded tungsten material that has been added to ExOne’s portfolio of 3D printing materials. rp+m plans to use the material in place of lead in an ExOne M-Flex machine to develop solutions for shielding people and environments from ionizing radiation in the medical imaging and aerospace markets. According to ExOne, the M-Flex can create complex shapes for these applications more easily than conventional manufacturing methods.

ExOne also has added iron infiltrated with bronze as a new 3D printing material and has increased the suite of binder solutions for its 3D printing process to include phenolic and sodium silicate.
