MX3D, a Dutch pioneer in large-format 3D metal printing, and the renowned Brazilian research institute CIT SENAI (Serviço Nacional de Aprendizagem Industrial) have announced a strategic partnership. As part of the cooperation, MX3D will sell its cutting-edge M1 3D metal printing system to CIT SENAI in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
Together, the partners will explore the vast possibilities of Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) in key industries such as oil and gas, mining and nuclear in Brazil. The installation of the M1 system at CIT SENAI is planned for the second quarter of 2024.
The WAAM technology developed by MX3D enables the printing of extremely large metal parts made of alloys such as stainless steel, mild steel, aluminum, bronze or Inconel. MX3D’s M-Series 3D printers, including the M1 system now sold to CIT SENAI, can print parts up to 5 tons. They utilize a high-precision 8-axis robotic arm.
The M series runs on MetalXL 4.0, the latest generation of MX3D software. It is characterized by data-driven process control, a special WAAM workflow and high productivity. According to the manufacturer, the turnkey systems meet the high industry standards for productivity, quality assurance and process control.
