ExOne expands its Binder Jetting reach in Asia

May 14, 2021

The ExOne Company, North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA, has collaborated with Aurora Group and two of its subsidiaries, General Integration Technology (GIT) in Taiwan and Aurora 3D in China, to expand the reach of ExOne’s Binder Jetting (BJT) Additive Manufacturing technology in Asia. GIT and Aurora 3D are now authorised channel partners to sell ExOne’s industrial solutions.

“GIT and Aurora 3D have deep experience with 3D printing software and hardware as well as a sales network to successfully identify companies that can benefit from binder jet technology,” stated Ben Leung, ExOne vice president. “We are excited to work together to further promote the adoption of Additive Manufacturing through our portfolio of machine solutions. With these additions, ExOne has doubled its representation in Greater China over the past year and brings the total number of sales partners in the APAC region to twelve.”

Daniel Chi, General Manager of GIT and Aurora 3D, commented, “We’ve been committed to the 3D industry for nearly 30 years and adhere to the principle of ‘3D innovation, integration, and trendsetter. We strived to find a metal 3D printing system that can mass produce high density, high precision, and third-party qualified materials. More importantly: we believe that ExOne sustainable manufacturing can achieve mass production of metal 3D solutions.”

“We expect ExOne metal 3D printing to advance our market from plastic prototyping and design to metal manufacturing production. Binder jetting helps customers save time and money, reduce waste, and increase manufacturing flexibility to create a win-win situation,” Chi added.

ExOne’s patented binder jet AM process transforms powdered materials — metal, sand or ceramic — into highly dense and functional precision parts or tooling at high speeds. An industrial printhead selectively deposits a binder into a bed of powder particles creating a solid part one thin layer at a time. The technology is viewed as a desirable and sustainable production method, largely because of its ability to build consolidated, lightweight designs at high speeds, with minimal waste, at a low cost, and with the flexibility to use a variety of materials.

The company has qualified more than twenty metal, ceramic, and composite materials for its BJT technology. More than half of those materials are single-alloy metals, such as 17-4PH, 316L, 304L, M2 tool steel, Inconel 718, and more.
