NORTH HUNTINGDON, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The
ExOne Company (Nasdaq: XONE) (“ExOne”), a global provider of
three-dimensional (“3D”) printing machines, 3D printed products,
materials and services to industrial customers, today announced its
initial X1 25PRO™ beta machine partnership with Kennametal Inc. (NYSE:
KMT), a global leader in material science, tooling and wear-resistant
During the beta period ExOne and Kennametal will have an opportunity to
evaluate the new X1 25PRO™ machine and trial test new materials and
processes. As a multiple machine customer, Kennametal is on the cutting
edge of binder jetting technology adoption for additive manufacturing.
“We see binder jetting technology as a key enabler for our
differentiated, high-performance wear materials, such as tungsten
carbide and Kennametal Stellite™ alloys,” said Sherri McCleary,
Director, Business Development Additive, Kennametal. “Kennametal is
uniquely qualified to supply these additive materials and components,
and we’re pleased to collaborate with ExOne on cutting-edge technology
with the potential to help us advance from prototyping to serial
“Working with innovative, global companies like Kennametal is another
important step towards integrating industrial 3D printing into existing
and new production lines. We are excited to bring Kennametal on as a
beta user and look forward to beginning the testing program”, said John
Hartner, Chief Executive Officer, ExOne.
The new X1 25PRO™ will be revealed at the RAPID
+ TCT event in Detroit, MI, May 20th – 23rd.
This high-resolution production machine is capable of printing metal,
ceramic, and other advanced material parts directly. The X1 25PRO™ can
print standard industry powders utilized in MIM (metal injection
molding) and other PM (powdered metal) processes. ExOne has already
received a production order for the X1 25PRO™. The X1 25PRO™ will
utilize proven technology demonstrated on ExOne’s Innovent+™ and will be
shipping to customers later this year.
