Key Features

Wide Material Capability
silicon carbide parts
The X-Series binder jet 3D prints a wide variety of materials, including metals, ceramics, and composites. This flexibility is achieved through Triple ACT which enables the use of both high- and low-flow materials, as well as small and large particle sizes. The X-Series is used to process stainless steels, tool steels, nickel alloys, aluminum and titanium alloys, metal composites and ceramics, such as silicon carbide and aluminum-infiltrated boron carbide (B4C).

Tight Tolerances
316l bobbin
With density variation across the build area, dimensional tolerances can be controlled within 1-2.5% on a first print run. With optimization for production, X-Series systems routinely achieve dimensional tolerances of less than 1%, all while maintaining post-sintered densities from 97% to better than 99% for most metals.

Excellent Surface Quality
bike part
The X-series achieves world-class surface finish through the combined benefits of the Triple ACT system and precision binder placement. High print bed density and optimized binder placement all but eliminate binder bleed and overspray, producing excellent edge definition, surface quality, and surface finish as low as 4 µm Ra.
