The ExOne Company, a provider of Additive Manufacturing systems and services, headquartered in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA, has revealed its new X1 25PRO™ metal Additive Manufacturing beta system at Rapid + TCT 2019, Detroit, Michigan, USA, from May 20–23. The company also announced Kennametal Inc., a supplier of tooling and wear resistant solutions, located in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA, as a beta customer.

During the beta period ExOne states that Kennametal will have the opportunity to evaluate the X1 25PRO system and trial new materials and processes. According to ExOne, the high-resolution production machine is capable of Additive Manufacturing metal, ceramic, and other advanced material parts directly, as well as standard industry powders utilised in Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and other Powder Metallurgy (PM) processes.

“We see Binder Jet technology as a key enabler for our differentiated, high-performance wear materials, such as tungsten carbide and Kennametal Stellite™ alloys,” stated, Sherri McCleary, Director of Business Development Additive at Kennametal. “Kennametal is uniquely qualified to supply these additive materials and components, and we’re pleased to collaborate with ExOne on cutting-edge technology with the potential to help us advance from prototyping to serial production.”

John Hartner, Chief Executive Officer at ExOne, commented, “Working with innovative, global companies like Kennametal is another important step towards integrating industrial 3D printing into existing and new production lines. We are excited to bring Kennametal on as a beta user and and look forward to beginning the testing programme.”
