Xact Metal celebrates 100th Additive Manufacturing machine order
May 16, 2023
Xact Metal, State College, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced that it has received its 100th Additive Manufacturing machine order, which the company has marked as a significant milestone in its growth. This follows on from the successful launch of the XM200G in 2021, the company’s second metal AM machine which has significantly expanded the company’s reach and customer base.
With single- or dual-laser options, the XM200G is reported to offer metal Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) at industrial speed and performance, at a more affordable price point. The machine is based on the design of the Xact Metal XM200C metal AM machine, but uses a high-performance galvanometer system. This new architecture allows faster manufacturing times and supports multiple lasers.
Xact Metal credits its success to a dedicated sales network, which provides local sales and service support to customers in over fifty countries. Alongside its growing product line, the company has expanded into new industries.
