ExOne, a global provider of binder jetting 3D printing systems, services, and materials, has released its latest system, the X1 25 PRO at Formnext.
The X1 25 PRO enables a larger build volume and the equivalent powder metallurgy capabilities powders from ExOne’s INNOVENT+ . The platform is also designed to focus on the Metal Injection Molding (MIM), powder metallurgy, and mechanical engineering market applications.

According to Jared Helfrich, Chief Commercial Officer at ExOne, the X1 25 Pro can produce prints using very fine MIM powders of nine microns. The technology is based on the process settings from the INNOVENT+ additive manufacturing system, however, with a larger volumetric output.
System - Range - MIM - Powders - L
The system uses a wide range of MIM powders including 136L, 304 L, and 17-4PH stainless steels; Inconel 718 and 625; M2 and H11 tool steels; cobalt chrome; copper; and tungsten carbide cobalt. It combines these powders with a binder to print a green part, that is...
