Laser Lines Ltd, a provider of AM systems and laser equipment headquartered in Banbury, Oxfordshire, UK, has become a UK reseller of Xact Metal’s Additive Manufacturing systems. The company will be distributing the Xact Metal XM200C and XM200S machines immediately, and the XM300C model when it becomes available in 2020.

Xact Metal systems are aimed at customers in high-performing industries where high-throughput and speed is critical, such as aerospace and medical (XM200S), and for entry-level operators, universities, prototyping laboratories and SMEs (XM200C). Both the XM200S and XM200C machines reportedly offer a 127 x 127 x 127 mm build chamber.

Both systems can be used to produce parts in stainless steel, super alloys, tooling steels, aluminium, titanium and bronze, and feature an open platform to enable qualified users designed to enable users to develop their own AM parameters or use their own metal powder where necessary.

“We are delighted to be the chosen UK supplier for Xact Metal, whose metal printing systems are establishing new levels of price and performance,” stated Mark Tyrtania, Sales Director at Laser Lines. “Making quality metal printing accessible requires innovation. Xact Metal’s printing technology is built on the patent-pending Xact Core – a high speed gantry system platform where light, simple mirrors move quickly and consistently above the powder-bed on an X-Y axis. It’s another step change for our industry and opens a whole range of exciting opportunities.”
