“ExOmetry”: Xometry to include ExOne metal binder jetting among its AM service capabilities

The ExOne Company, the global leader in industrial sand and metal 3D printers using binder jetting technology, and Xometry, the largest U.S. marketplace for custom manufacturing, today announced that they will partner to provide metal 3D printing services. ExOmetry seems like the most appropriate (strictly not official) term to describe the partnership, between the two companies.

Binder jetting offers Xometry customers a fast and cost-effective way to 3D print metal prototypes and production parts. With binder jetting, an inkjet printhead quickly deposits a bonding agent onto a thin layer of powdered particles — either metal, sand, ceramics or composites. This process is repeated, layer-by-layer, using a map from a digital design file, until the object is complete.

ExOne will be the exclusive provider of binder jetting services in Xometry’s recently-launched Digital RFQ Marketplace. ExOne currently 3D prints more than 20 materials, including 316L and 17-4PH stainless steels, Inconel 718 and M2 Tool Steel.

“ExOne is proud to offer our metal 3D printing services to Xometry customers,” said John Hartner, ExOne’s CEO. “Our industrial binder jet machines can truly take products from prototyping all the way to final production with a single process that is fast, affordable and sustainable.”

“We’re excited to offer binder jetting to expand the range of services our customers can get from Xometry’s new Digital RFQ Marketplace,” said Randy Altschuler, Xometry’s CEO. “ExOne is a true innovator in additive manufacturing and we believe this partnership is a big win for our customers.”
