"With decades of manufacturing experience and significant investment in research and product development, ExOne has pioneered the evolution of nontraditional manufacturing.
This investment has yielded a new generation of rapid production technology in the field of additive manufacturing as well as advanced micromachining processes.
Its process solutions give manufacturers the freedom to produce objects that have virtually unlimited design complexity.
ExOne collaborates with its clients through the entire development and production process so that they are able to “materialize” new concepts — designs, prototypes, and production parts — precisely when needed.
Production scale is irrelevant and lot quantities of one are just as efficient as lot quantities of one thousand. It offers both the services and the equipment to enable point-of-use manufacturing using additive manufacturing processes. ExOne supports the use of traditional industrial strength materials ranging from metals to ceramics to glass, all used in revolutionary ways. Its range of offerings also includes services and equipment for fabricating on a “micro” scale, which enables machining of small features with precision and speed.
All this makes ExOne an optimal partner for any industrial manufacturer who is transitioning their manufacturing business to the digital age.
ExOne produces an array of materialization systems to support a wide range of customer needs and facility requirements.
ExOne currently offers two of the largest printers on the world market for 3D printing of sand and metal materials, offering build sizes as large as 1800 x 1000 x 700 mm (70 x 39 x 27 in.) for sand and 780 x 400 x 400 mm (30.7 x 15.75 x 15.75 in.) for metal.
Smaller scale metal/glass printers are also available for university/research lab applications or small-scale product manufacturers, with a build size of 40 x 60 x 35 mm (1.5 x 2.3 x 1.3 in.).
At IMTS 2012, ExOne unveiled the latest in the digital part materialization line-up: the M-Flex. Offered as a mid-size, flexible solution which is capable of printing in a range of materials, this machine features a build size of 400 x 250 x 250 mm (15.7 x 9.8 x 9.8 in.).
ExMicro also offers Orion™ short pulse laser systems, utilizing a five-axis machine tool with four additional axes available on the trepanning head.
The state-of-the-art beam manipulation permits the fabrication of complex shapes, including direct and inverse taper.
ExOne Materialization Systems are sold as complete systems packages and customized for specific customer requirements and applications."
