The ExOne Company, North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA, has expanded its Adoption Center in Europe with the addition of metal binder jet Additive Manufacturing capabilities. Until now, the adoption centre, situated in Gersthofen, Germany, has primary additively manufactured sand moulds and cores for metalcasting; the addition of metal Binder Jetting (BJT) enables it to offer end-to-end engineering services such as benchmarks, design support, and materials, process and work cell development.

The mission of ExOne’s Adoption Centers, with locations in the US, Germany, and Japan, is to allow customers to try metal BJT for their designs before they decide to buy an AM machine for their own production. The European centre now features two of ExOne’s Innovent+® machines, and an X1 25Pro®, X1 Metal DesignlabTM and X1FTM furnace will be installed soon, next to the production line of the X1 160ProTM, described as the world’s largest metal Binder Jetting system

“Now, manufacturers throughout Europe can benefit from locally produced binder jetted metal designs and benchmarks along with world-class engineering consultation and support,” stated John Hartner, ExOne’s CEO. “We encourage manufacturers to take advantage of the high speed, low cost, and industry-leading quality that our patented Binder Jetting technology can deliver for even the most complex designs.”

“Our centralised location outside of Munich gives manufacturers the opportunity to see metal Binder Jetting in action and work closely with our expanded metal team on precision metal parts projects,” added Eric Bader, Managing Director. “This expansion is supported by increased interest in metal Binder Jetting in Europe as the technology matures.”
