The new X1 25Pro metal printing system will be installed and used in the Schunk Sinter Metals location in Thale, Germany, to provide serial production of sintered metal parts to automotive, aerospace, medical, and other customers throughout Europe – starting with 316L stainless steel and later expanding to other materials.

“We believe 3D printing is the technology of the future, and we will use our binder jetting system to develop technologies and parts that go beyond what we can provide with traditional sintered metal components,” said Tobias Franz Heusel, Global Account Manager at Schunk.

Schunk plans to integrate its ExOne metal binder jetting technology into its industrial ecosystem that already includes other methods of 3D printing producing parts with different materials such as copper, stainless steel and low alloyed steel, as well as conventional manufacturing processes such as axial pressing and metal injection molding. “We believe binder jetting offers four primary advantages. In addition to speed and freedom of design, the ability to produce large volumes with 3D printing and a large selection of materials is fairly unique among 3D printing processes,” Heusel added.

Schunk selected ExOne as its binder jet partner, largely because of the company’s extensive history as the commercial pioneer and market leader in metal binder jetting. Over its history, ExOne has launched more than 10 commercial metal binder jetting systems.

“We are proud to partner with Schunk to provide ExOne binder jet 3D printing services in the European market,” said Eric Bader, Managing Director, ExOne, EMEA. “Schunk’s services will complement our own ExOne Adoption Center (EAC) in Gersthofen, where we will provide benchmarks to customers interested in purchasing machines.”

What is Binder Jet 3D Printing?

ExOne’s binder jet 3D printing transforms powdered materials – metal, sand or ceramic – into highly dense and functional precision parts at high speeds.

An industrial printhead selectively deposits a binder into a bed of powder particles creating a solid part one thin layer at a time. When printing metals, the final bound metal part must be sintered in a furnace to fuse the particles together into a solid object. ExOne now delivers high densities of greater than 97% for most metals, in line with Metal Injection Molding or gravity castings.

Binder jet 3D printing technology is viewed as a desirable and sustainable production method, largely because of its high speed, low waste and cost, as well as material flexibility.
