MX3D introduces new metal 3D printer for XXL parts

The Dutch company MX3D has developed a new 3D metal printer, the MX Metal AM System. This is said to be able to print particularly large and heavy metal components. The market launch is planned for the end of August at Formnext Forum in Austin.

According to MX3D, the printer thus meets the requirements of several customers in the energy and marine sectors. These want the ability to replace large cast or forged parts with 3D-printed versions.

The MX Metal AM system features an 8-axis robotic arm and with multiple adjustable build plates. This allows it to print objects weighing more than 5 tons and measuring 6 x 1.5 x 3.5 meters.

The system uses wire-arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) technology, which involves melting a metal wire. According to MX3D, the high flexibility and speed of this process make it ideal for printing extra-large metal parts.

In addition to the hardware, MX3D has also enhanced its MetalXL software. Version 4.0 is designed to print parts even more efficiently and with better quality. Sensors and other tools increase productivity and enable 24/7 operation.

Both the hardware and software are modular and can be customized to meet specific needs. According to MX3D, the MX Metal AM system will thus make 3D printing attractive for high-volume production of metal components in many industries.
