Xact Metal, a company focused on making 3D printing technology affordable and accessible, is set to launch the XM300G series of mid-size metal 3D printers at IMTS 2022 in Chicago, Illinois. The series aims to bring affordable metal 3D printing to small- to medium-sized companies and decentralize metal 3D printing.
“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,” said Juan Mario Gomez, CEO of Xact Metal. “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.”
The XM300G family is a single-, dual-, or quad-independent laser system with 100% overlapping print zones that introduce industrial speed and performance at an affordable price – allowing small-to-medium-sized companies to benefit from metal laser powder-bed fusion technology. A 300 x 300 x 350mm build volume (upgradable to 300 x 300 x 450mm), a selection of 400W or 700W fiber lasers, and an interchangeable build platform to reduce printing cycle time makes the XM300G well-suited to support a wide variety of additive manufacturing applications.
Xact Metal has already received orders for the XM300G, and shipments are scheduled to start in 3Q 2023.
“Xact Metal aims to further expand the use of metal 3D printing in multiple industries including aerospace, automotive, and general manufacturing,” said Juan Mario Gomez. “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.”
This launch follows the company’s recent expansion into Mexico, through a partnership with Tecnologías Computarizadas para Manufactura S.A. de C.V, and Columbia, through a partnership with USM Columbia.
