ExOne Releases New Prototyping Materials

All are suitable for applications in aerospace, medical and general industry sectors.

The ExOne Company, a provider of 3D printers and products, has added six new materials for its printing systems. These new materials, the company states, offer unique properties for a variety of uses.

The added materials include:

  • Cobalt-Chrome: Characteristics such as high melting points, incredible strength at high temperatures and resistance make this material suitable for aerospace, medical, chemical and energy applications.
  • IN Alloy 718: Used for items such as gas turbine blades, filtration and separation, this material has oxidation and corrosion-resistant qualities and strength retention at extreme conditions.
  • Iron-Chrome-Aluminum: Suitable for electrical furnace, electrical oven, home appliance, electrical heater and infrared applications.
  • 17-4 Stainless Steel and 316 Stainless Steel: Both grades of this material are cost-effective and corrosion resistant. They can be used for applications in automotive, medical and general industry.
  • Tungsten Carbide: With a melting point of 5018°F, this material can be used for production of high wear-resistant abrasives, carbide cutting tools and milling and turning tools.
“ExOne developed the latest printable materials for our binder jetting process as a result of our expanding customer development programs,” said Rick Lucas, ExOne’s chief technology officer. “Utilization of these materials in ExOne’s machines will allow our customers to advance our binder jetting applications with their technologies. The diversity of this group of printable materials demonstrates the breadth of industries that ExOne touches, including the aerospace, automotive, energy, foundry and medical markets – broadening our addressable market.”
