High quality 3D printers
The X160Pro™ uses Triple ACT (Advanced Compaction Technology). It is equipped with 4 piezoelectric print heads (4,096 nozzles) that operate unidirectionally.
The binder jetting system from Desktop Metal®, offers an open material platform and can reliably process everything from coarse sand, ceramics and other specialty materials to ultra-fine MIM (Metal Injection Molding) powders. The X160Pro™ has an installation space of 160 liters and offers a wide range of applications - from prototyping to series production.
Customers from a wide range of industries around the world trust the reliable and process-safe system from Desktop Metal® and take advantage of the binder jetting technology for increased design freedom.
With the X-Series, you can mass-produce dimensionally accurate and dimensionally precise components. Tolerances can be less than 1% after optimal material adaptation and parameter setting - density can vary from 97% to over 99%.
Take advantage of an open platform and increase your production flexibility. Produce complex single components from metal, ceramic, sand, and composite materials in high volumes, in layer thicknesses from 3 to 100 μm.
The unsurpassed surface quality on the X-Series is the result of optimally matching the Triple ACT system with the precise placement of the binder. Binder build-up and overspray can thus be avoided, resulting in exceptional edge sharpness and surface finish (4 µm Ra) on parts.
Metals, ceramics, and composites are just some of the materials in the X-Series portfolio. This versatility is achieved through the Triple ACT system, which allows the use of high- and low-flow materials, as well as small and large powder particles. The X-Series is used for processing ceramics such as silicon carbide and aluminum-infiltrated boron carbide, as well as stainless steels, tool steels, nickel alloys, aluminum, and titanium alloys (B4C).
The additional equipment of the X-Series includes powder preparation and de-powdering equipment.
Additive manufacturing enables rapid functional prototyping of complex automotive components and on-demand tooling - increasing design flexibility, shortening product development times and streamlining production.
For consumer goods manufacturers, 3D printing is beneficial for both product development and production. During the development phase, designs can be quickly tested and feedback can be obtained from the market. Regionally coordinated, smaller quantities or even high batch sizes can be produced quickly and without tools.
The open system, offers students the opportunity to access different materials and gain experience accordingly. The advantages are used by a wide range of faculties and are very much appreciated.
With 3D printing, designers can simultaneously print and test multiple variations of a part to quickly optimize their designs. Thanks to greater design freedom, engineers are now able to design complex geometries that would be impossible to produce conventionally. Furthermore, components can now be combined into an assembly and manufactured in one step.
Equipment for the mining, iron and steel, machinery and plant engineering, refinery, pulp and paper industries all require mechanically highly stressable components with specific properties. With 3D printing, customer-specific parts can be produced without tools and usually do not require any post-processing.
By rapidly producing manufacturing tools such as jigs and fixtures and mold inserts, 3D printing helps shorten lead times and reduce costs, allowing companies to move quickly from finished design to production.
