ExOne authorizes ABC Corporation as Korean partner

The ExOne Company the global leader in industrial sand and metal 3D printers using binder jetting technology, announced that ABC Corporation is now an authorized channel partner to sell ExOne industrial solutions in South Korea.

“There is so much possibility in creating sand cores and molds for complex castings that we are thrilled to welcome ABC Corporation into our distribution network,” said Ben Leung, ExOne Vice President, Asia. “ABC’s foundry experience will help ExOne reach the local market to share the many benefits of incorporating sand binder jetting into their business models.”

“By partnering with ExOne, ABC Corporation is delighted to have the opportunity to introduce the state-of-the-art technology into traditional foundry processes. We expect the ExOne 3D printer business to meet the needs of our customers to successfully implement modern casting that requires very complex and thin geometries,” stated Mr. JH Lee, ABC Corporation Deputy GM.

The S-Print

ExOne’s patented binder jet 3D printing process transforms powdered materials — metal, sand or ceramic — into highly dense and functional precision parts or tooling at high speeds. An industrial printhead selectively deposits a binder onto a bed of powder particles creating a solid part one thin layer at a time. Sand 3D printing can help reduce turnaround times from weeks and months to just days. The technology is viewed as a production method that increases the sustainability of casting with high levels of material recyclability, low waste, reduced scrap through improved mold quality, and the ability to consolidate and lightweight parts.

“Automotive companies and their tier-one suppliers are committed to innovating castings for electric vehicles with the goal of developing lightweight, thin-walled designs that are durable enough to improve fuel efficiency. Because of the limited development period for new models fast and accurate iterations are essential, and this is where we think ExOne matches the industry needs. As the world leader in binder jet technology, ExOne’s long experience and their latest technology advancements will help our customers gain the upper hand in the upcoming competition,” Lee said.

ExOne has qualified more than 20 metal, ceramic and composite materials for its binder jetting process. A variety of sand materials, including silica casting sand and Cerabeads, are matched with different binder combinations, including inorganic binder, for both ferrous and nonferrous sandcasting processes.
