ExOne 3D Production Adoption Services for Metal Binder Jetting 

We hear it every day: How do I get started? Whether you have a unique part design that you think is right for 3D printing or simply want to unleash all the benefits of binder jetting at your company, we can help. Our adoption process minimizes your risk and maximizes your success. 

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.

At ExOne, we don't just sell production binder jet 3D printers — we sell a complete solution crafted by a team that's been binder jetting metal for more than 20 years. When you do business with ExOne, we become an extension of your team and partners in your success.

Metal 3D Production is a Big Change — Let's Get it Right

Step Three  |  Validate Technical and Business Case

We provide a comprehensive executive report containing all of the technical and business details you and your team need to finalize a decision about the best way to proceed for your company.

Step Four  |  We Begin Production & Delivery Process

We offer you options to proceed:

  • We can being producing your parts long-term through our Pittsburgh-area production center
  • Or, you can proceed with the purchase of a binder jetting machine and work cell customized for your needs
  • We can also 3D print your parts for production until installation of your system

Step Five  |  White-Glove Work Cell Delivery

We install your complete system, as agreed, execute the first test runs and continue to support your operations and success.

Our System is Proven and Works

We have a number of global manufacturers who are moving through this process for the purchase of X1 25Pro and X1 160Pro production metal 3D printers.
