The ExOne Company, the global leader in industrial sand and metal 3D printers using binder jetting technology, recently revealed the culmination of two decades of metal 3D product development with its tenth and largest metal 3D printer to date: the X1 160PRO.
The new X1 160PRO metal 3D printer delivers 160 liters of total build volume large enough to produce investment cast parts used in the automotive, aerospace, and defense industries.
The open material system is capable of 3D printing six qualified metals, including the popular stainless steels 316L, 304L, and 17-4PH, as well as some ceramics, into dense and reliable final parts using ExOne’s exclusive Triple Advanced Compaction Technology (ACT) system.
The X1 160PRO is designed to deliver the best quality part at production speeds. The new system also features Industry 4.0 cloud connectivity and process-linking capabilities enabled by Siemens MindSphere.
The X1 160PRO joins ExOne’s growing family of metal 3D printers, which includes the Innovent+, an entry-level system used globally for research, design and small part production. The X1 160PRO is slated to ship in late 2020.
