The X1 25PRO offers customers the ability to produce parts from a variety of materials including: 316L, 304L and 17-4PH stainless steels; Inconel 718 and 625; M2 and H11 tool steels; cobalt chrome; copper; tungsten carbide cobalt; and many others.

ExOne’s latest 3D printer is the first of two machines being introduced before mid-2019 that utilise the company’s patent-pending MIM powder processing technologies. The machines will be the most flexible and highest performing binder jetting machines in the market, says the company. Customers of ExOne’s Innovent+ platform can now scale up to a mid-size production platform using the same powder metallurgy standard powders currently in use.

ExOne has a legacy of introducing materials and processes using binder jetting. The company has machines installed at customer facilities in more than 20 countries around the globe.
