(XactMetal) Xact Metal has launched its XM300, a mid-sized, industrial grade metal 3D printer with a large build volume of 10 x 13 x 13 in or 254 x 330 x 330 mm The XM300 uses laser-based powder bed fusion technology and is designed for large-part development and production use. The company filed a utility patent in May 2017 for its Xact Core technology, a system that uses a light-weight, high-speed X-Y gantry platform instead of expensive galvanometer mirrors to deliver the laser to the powder bed surface. Shipments for the XM300 are scheduled to start in fall 2018.
“Priced between $400,000–$600,000 USD depending on the number of lasers, we are confident that the XM300 will create a new benchmark for price and performance in the metal additive manufacturing industry, boosting adoption rate of metal 3D printing across many industries,” said Juan Mario Gomez, CEO of Xact Metal. “In addition, the XM300’s small size reduces overall space requirements on the manufacturing floor, allowing for easy installation, handling and maintenance.”
