ExOne Innovent Now Prints Metal and Ceramic Powders of Less Than 10 Microns

3D printer manufacturer ExOne announced that their binder jetting technology is now capable of printing finer, industrial grade metal and ceramic powders.

The ExOne Innovent machine can now 3D print metal and ceramic objects using sub-10-micron industry standard powders. Printed objects feature higher density and an improved surface finish quality.

The Innovent 3D printer is designed to target industrial research and development, commercial and laboratory research, and educational institutions, facilitating qualification of materials. The system’s offers a build size sufficient enough for prototyping and production quantities for the metal injection moulding and powder metallurgy industries.

ExOne CEO Jim McCarley said:  “The fine powder Innovent is a critical technology milestone along ExOne’s product development roadmap for our direct printing equipment.  It is expected to complement traditional manufacturing processes within the Metal Injection Molding and Powder Metal industries.”

Due to the new capabilities, the manufacturer now added stainless steel 316L to its material portfolio. This material is used in a variety of industrial markets.

Besides the new fine powder machine, ExOne also offers a modification package of installed Innovent printers. Additionally, the Company plans to apply these machine enhancements to its M-Flex, as well as its next generation larger format printing system.
