Sculpteo offers metal binder jet technology using ExOne M-Flex AM system

June 29, 2017

Sculpteo, Paris, France, a provider of on-demand Additive Manufacturing services, has announced that it will make industrial grade metal binder jet Additive Manufacturing available to its customers using ExOne’s M-Flex platform. The M-Flex platform produces 420 stainless steel material that is infiltrated with bronze powder, delivering a composite material that is 60% stainless steel and 40% bronze.

Finished parts produced by the ExOne system can then be plated with nickel and gold. According to Sculpteo, metal binder jet AM provides a fast and low cost technique that is ideal for prototyping needs, ornamental and decorative objects or jewellery requiring plating and polishing.

Based in Pennsylvania, USA, ExOne is a global provider of Additive Manufacturing systems and additively produced products, materials and other services to industrial customers. The company’s business primarily consists of manufacturing and selling AM systems, and additively manufacturing products to specification for its customers. At present, ExOne manages eight production service centres in the United States, Germany, Italy and Japan.

Marine Core-Baillais, Sculpteo Deputy CEO, explained: “Metal binder jetting can create complicated and highly detailed designs in a very short amount of time. The cost of metal binder jetting technology is lower than traditional manufacturing techniques and other metal 3D printing technologies, thanks to the mixed material of metal powders and binding agent. ExOne’s M-Flex machine is an outstanding high-capacity platform that enables product designers and engineers to build functional prototypes and production parts.”
