3D Printers for Industrial R&D


The ExOne Company has announced the latest addition to its industrial-grade 3D printer line-up:  Innovent, designed especially for research and education customers.

Innovent is an industrial-grade, laboratory-sized machine designed for testing material properties in educational institutions, research laboratories, and research and development (R&D) departments at commercial organizations.

The system balances a specific build box for the technical qualification of materials with a smaller overall lab machine platform size, when compared to other industrial-grade 3D printers.

“Innovent expands upon ExOne’s lab machine offerings by allowing customers, whether they are educators or companies, the ability to qualify materials, an option not previously available in these types of 3D printers,” said S. Kent Rockwell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for ExOne.

“ExOne is improving its laboratory solution to help drive the overall industrial sector towards increased experience with and use of binder jetting 3D printing.”

Innovent employs the ExOne approach to additive manufacturing – "binder jetting –  which uses a print head to selectively dispense micro-droplets of specially-engineered binder into very thin layers of powdered metal.

Within the world of additive manufacturing, ExOne is distinctive in that it offers solutions that are focused on industrial users and applications, and the Innovent is the latest machine to serve that market.
