ExOne announces new X1 25PRO binder jetting 3D printer

ExOne is now taking orders for its new AM system, expected to ship by late 2019

ExOne, a specialist in binder jetting technologies, has introduced the X1 25PRO, a new 3D printer that combines the company’s INNOVENT+ fine metal injection molding (MIM) technology with production volume capabilities. The new machine was developed with MIM, powder metallurgy and manufacturing clients in mind and is well suited for production environments.

Despite the fact that ExOne first announced the release of its X1 25PRO system in November—coinciding with Formnext 2018—news of the metal printer is only really begin to circulate now. The company is presently accepting orders for the X1 25PRO system, though for the first public glimpse of the machine the industry will have to wait until the RAPID + TCT even in Detroit this coming May. Orders for the system are expected to ship starting in late 2019.

“We are pleased to bring the new X1 25PRO™ to market to satisfy the needs of industry for high quality, functional, production-volume parts,” said Rick Lucas, ExOne’s Chief Technology Officer. “ExOne has a pioneering legacy of being on the cutting edge of introducing materials and processes using binder jetting. We currently have machines installed in customer facilities in more than twenty countries around the globe and we are proud to bring innovations like the X1 25PRO™ to realization.”

Leveraging the X1 25PRO, customers will have the ability to produce high quality parts using powder metallurgy standard powders, including 316L, 304L and 17-4PH stainless steels; Inconel 718 and 625; M2 and H11 tool steels; cobalt chrome; copper; tungsten carbide cobalt; and others.

ExOne clients that have already adopted the company’s INNOVENT+ platform for research and education will now be able to scale up to the new mid-size production platform based on the same powders and technology. ExOne emphasizes that its new system is focused on MIM, powder metallurgy and mechanical engineering applications.

Lucas added: “Our X1 25PRO™ is the first of two machines that we are introducing by the end of the first half of 2019, utilizing our state-of-the-art patent pending MIM powder processing machine technologies. We believe these new production machines will be the most flexible and highest performing binder jetting machines in the market.”
