ExOne X1 25Pro Metal 3D Printer Supports Production Volumes
ExOne has announced the release of its X1 25Pro metal 3D printing platform. Combining the fine metal injection molding (MIM) powder capability of ExOne’s Innovent machine with production volume capability, the X1 25Pro is designed to address the needs of MIM, powder metallurgy and manufacturing customers seeking a larger platform solution for producing reliable parts in a production environment.
The X1 25Pro makes it possible to produce fine quality parts from a variety of printable materials including: 316L, 304 L and 17-4PH stainless steels; Inconel 718 and 625; M2 and H11 tool steels; cobalt chrome; copper; tungsten carbide cobalt; and more.
High-end metal additive manufacturing relies on the perfect gas composition to create products that meet the required material properties. But gas such as argon is also key to metal powder production, storage and postprocessing.
3D printing requires different finishing considerations than traditional manufacturing. One expert offers do’s and don’ts for approaching the finishing of additively manufactured parts.
