ExOne GmbH, based in Augsburg, Germany, will focus on its latest developments in metal Additive Manufacturing systems at this year’s EuroMold with the display of its M-Flex system, claimed to be the fastest metal printer in its class.
The M-Flex 3D printer prints stainless steel components which then undergo a sintering and infiltration processes to achieve final strength. Complex geometries are stated as being particularly suited to the process. The M-Flex has a build area of 400 x 250 x 250 mm and a build speed of between 30-60 seconds per layer.
“In many industries ranging from automotive to aerospace the technology already saves valuable time and resources. It helps components to be developed both faster and without constraints and at the same time results in a higher productivity at a lower costs,” stated Rainer Höchsmann, European Managing Director at ExOne. “The fact that we now also offer the metal-printing option to our customers in Europe is an additional milestone in the success story of 3D industrial printing.”
ExOne can be found in Hall 11, Booth D108 at EuroMold, November 25-28, 2014.
