In fact, you won't find a more experienced team in binder jet 3D printing anywhere in the world. ExOne commercialized the first metal binder jetting system in 1998, and we've been running our own metal production center outside of Pittsburgh for more than 20 years.
While 3D printing has been around for a while, we know that moving to 3D printing for production is still new for most manufacturers.
DOWNLOAD PROCESSAt ExOne, we can help you unleash all the benefits of 3D printing — geometric freedom, lightweighting, part consolidation, waste reduction, and more — while minimizing the risk that comes with a major shift in production strategies.
We've honed a step-by-step adoption process that gives your team critical technical and business checkpoints that de-risks your transformational move to metal binder jetting. We know what it takes to get it right, and we're committed to making your move a success.
