Xact Metal, headquartered in State College, Pennsylvania, USA, announced a sales and service partnership with Indicate Technologies, based in Santa Clara, California, and the launch of a new powder handling system at this year’s RAPID + TCT event.

“At Xact Metal, we’re establishing a new level of price and performance in metal 3D printing by taking the essential specs of metal Additive Manufacturing and combining them with breakthrough technology,” said Juan Mario Gomez, CEO of Xact Metal. “We are pleased to partner with Indicate Technologies because of their strong team and experience in Additive Manufacturing.”

Indicate Technologies is said to provide a strong background in Additive Manufacturing through their expansive line of products, as well as their experience with other tools adjacent to the AM market, including sensors and dry electropolishing systems. With a focus on the western United States and years of experience handling AM machines, the Indicate Technologies team will provide training, technical support, and maintenance for Xact Metal machines.

“We are excited to begin our partnership with Xact Metal to include a low-cost metal 3D printing solution in our offering,” said Hoang Van, Director of Additive for Indicate Technologies. “Xact Metal’s printers can be introduced at a lower initial price and are well suited for existing industries within manufacturing in the United States.”

Xact Metal also introduced a new powder handling system at Rapid + TCT. The system will stand separately from the XM200G metal Additive Manufacturing machine and provide an improved powder handling system. Powder containers can be pulled directly from the XM200G and fit onto this new system for automatic, hands-free sieving. The refreshed powder can then be transferred to a fresh capsule by opening shut-off valves, resulting in an easier and simpler powder handling process. The new powder handling system is available for sale now and shipments will commence in 3Q 2024.

“The new powder handling system eases and speeds up the powder handling process while maintaining the flexibility of the XM200G printer to support different types of powders,” said Gomez. “We are pleased with the solution our team has built and the ability to upgrade existing systems.”
