The ExOne Company, North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA, has released its newest binder jet metal Additive Manufacturing system, the Innovent+. The new system is based on the company’s previous Innovent range and offers increased powder handling capabilities and the company’s new Ultrasonic recoater, designed to enable greater material flexibility and ease of use.

According to ExOne, the Ultrasonic recoater is the most advanced powder dispensing technology on the market. The recoater can be quickly removed for system cleaning or powder changeover, and comes with four screen configurations for greater material compatibility.

The Innovent+ has been designed for small-scale research and laboratory environments and offers a compact footprint of 1203 x 887 x 1434 mm. The machine has a build volume of 160 x 65 x 65 mm and a production speed of 45–60 seconds/layer at a layer thickness of 50 μm.

The new system also offers expanded dust collection options. Dust collection has been localised to remove powder from around the buildbox, using a dust particulate remover with a variable control knob to allow the user to adjust the CFM units removed. These options are now available for both the Innovent+ and the original Innovent system.
