X1 METAL DESIGNLAB™ PRINTER

The original two-step bound metal printing process. Eliminates chemical or lengthy thermal debinding requirements, driving final part delivery times to a simple overnight sintering.

  • More metals plus ceramics. Today, we offer 17-4PH and 316L stainless steels, but other metals and ceramics are on the way and are simple to swap out with our HydroFuse™ canisters.
  • Highly affordable. When you eliminate binder, you eliminate a debinding unit and expensive solvents.
  • Our printer is as easy as an entry-level plastic system. Our software is a breeze and the process mirrors printing plastic. All of our metals are bound in our paste, so there’s no loose powder.
  • Completely office safe and office friendly. By eliminating 98% of the binders, we also eliminate debinding odors in the office. Our process has no solvents, no fumes, no odors or no need to dispose of waste polymer.

A Furnace Built for the Office

ExOne technology isn’t just office safe, it was built for the office environment. The X1F advanced furnace by Rapidia is fully automated, safe and easy to install. Powered by a 60A single-phase receptacle and sized to fit through an office door, it is designed from the ground up to be truly office-friendly. The furnace software comes pre-loaded with sintering profiles; just select a material and press start. A thick walled retort ensures thermal uniformity over the full temperature range, with a peak temperature of 1400 °C.
