ExOne X1 160Pro Turns Powder to Parts
Edited by AM Staff
Virtual reality tour: Inside ExOne’s largest metal binder jet 3D printer.
ExOne's X1 160Pro, said to be the industry’s largest metal binder jet 3D printer, offers an 800 × 500 × 400 mm build envelope for turning powder to parts. Additionally, the X1 160Pro’s open system prints more than 20 metal, ceramic and composite powders with ExOne’s patented Triple Advanced Compaction Technology, delivering industry-leading green part density and repeatability.
The printer also offers new Industry 4.0 cloud connectivity and process-linking capabilities enabled by Siemens MindSphere. The system incorporates more than two decades of knowledge to deliver reliable, sustainable production of high-quality metal parts.
New potential for mold tooling applications is reached with custom-designed materials for additive manufacturing.
3D printed metal parts typically feature little stock remaining for finishing. Grinding is potentially an effective solution for meeting final tolerances. An abrasive technology provider investigates grinding as a complement to AM.
When your metal part is done 3D printing, you just pull it out of the machine and start using it, right? Not even close.
