Pennsylvania startup Xact Metal launches affordable XM200 metal PBF 3D printer

Xact Metal, a Pennsylvania based startup, introduced the XM200 direct metal printer, promising high-performance printing and industrial quality at an affordable price. Established as a metal additive manufacturing systems provider in early 2017, Xact Metal is making metal additive manufacturing systems affordable for small to midsized companies, research labs and universities.

“Priced at $120,000, the XM200 is our first industrial 3D printer, offering outstanding performance and affordability,” said Juan Mario Gomez, CEO of Xact Metal. “We believe it will make a big impact on our customers’ Additive Manufacturing needs.”

Xact MetalThe XM200 printer features a build volume of 125 in3 (5x5x5 in.) or 2049 cc3 (127x127x125 mm), a 250W fiber laser, and a patent-pending high-speed scanner which fuses at speeds up to 1.5 meter/sec. Its laser beam is constantly orthogonal across the entire powder bed surface, enabling it to produce consistent fusing characteristics throughout the complete build area.

“The XM200 is designed with the needs of customers in mind,” said Matt Woods, CTO of Xact Metal. “The large build volume gives great flexibility to print a variety of parts. The system is highly accessible and easy to use and its modern software architecture is streamlined, intuitive and supportive of visual workflows. And with a compact footprint, the XM200 allows customers to put one or several systems in their work areas.”

Xact Metal supports the next generation of innovative manufacturing solutions powered by metal 3D printing and aims to enable manufacturers to experience the benefits of high quality 3D metal printing at the best price possible. The company is located in State College, Pennsylvania, which has been voted in the top 10 best small towns to live in and in the top 10 for start-up businesses in the United States. Xact Metal has received funding from Ben Franklin Technology Partners and operates out of The Pennsylvania State University’s Innovation Park.
