Metal Printing Goes Mainstream

Description

Metal X is the first 3D printer to harness the company's breakthrough additive technology in metal manufacturing – Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM). The system allows users to create shapes and geometries that cannot be machined or produced with today's metal printers, opening up new possibilities for lighter parts with advanced built-in functionality.

 

The ADAM technique produces robust, accurate parts across a wide range of engineering metals. Parts are printed, layer-by-layer, using a metal powder contained in a plastic binder. After printing, plastic binders are removed and the part sintered into customary engineering metals. By sintering the entire part at once, ADAM technology allows metal crystals to grow through the bonded layers, effectively erasing the layer-to-layer strength reduction of many other 3D printing processes.

 

At launch, the Metal X will print high-end stainless steels such as 17-4 and 303. Tool Steel for injection molding applications and other metals are actively under development and will be available later this year.

 

Built on innovations pioneered in the Mark X carbon fiber printer, the new Metal X features an industrial-grade print platform, enabling accurate creation of metal parts in an amazingly compact enclosure. The first printer to feature ADAM technology, the hardware, software, and materials work together to ensure a seamless printing experience that any engineer or manufacturer can learn quickly.
