Xact Metal, State College, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced the launch of its XM300G series of Laser Beam Powder Bed Fusion (PBF-LB) metal Additive Manufacturing machines. Available in a single, dual, or quad-laser configuration, the mid-size AM machine has a standard build volume of 300 x 300 x 350 mm, upgradable to 300 x 300 x 450 mm.
“With pricing beginning at a US MSRP of $200,000 dollars, the XM300G series is ideal for printing high quantities or large parts where print speed is critical,” stated Juan Mario Gomez, CEO of the company. “Based on the XM200G multi-laser printer platform, the introduction of the XM300G is another example of how Xact Metal continues to combine the requirements of metal powder-bed fusion and advanced technology to establish a new level of price and performance for Additive Manufacturing.”
A selection of 400 W or 700 W independent fibre lasers with complete build plate coverage, and an interchangeable build platform, make the XM300G series well suited to a wide variety of AM applications.
“Xact Metal aims to further expand the use of metal 3D printing in multiple industries including aerospace, automotive, and general manufacturing. The XM300G and XM200G printers are tailored to customers starting their entry into metal 3D printing in various applications, including product development, manufacturing, research, and education,” Gomez added.
The company states that it has already received orders for the new XM300G, with shipments scheduled to begin in Q3 2023.
