Powder bed fusion 3D printers have revolutionized the manufacturing industry, allowing for cost-effective metal 3D printing. And now, Xact Metal, a leading manufacturer in this field, has announced an exclusive sales and service partnership with System Create Co. This partnership aims to make metal 3D printing more accessible to small and medium-sized enterprises in Japan.

At Xact Metal, they pride themselves on offering a new level of price and performance in metal 3D printing. Their printers combine the essential specs of metal additive manufacturing with breakthrough technology. By partnering with System Create Co., they can introduce a low-priced metal 3D printer that is relatively easy to incorporate into businesses in Japan.

System Create Co., a company with decades of experience in 3D printing, will provide technical support and maintenance for Xact Metal printers. They offer a range of advanced manufacturing solutions, including 3D printers, 3D scanners, traditional manufacturing products, and software systems. This partnership aims to break down financial barriers and enable the widespread adoption of metal 3D technology.

One of the key advantages of Xact Metal printers is their affordability. Priced at less than half of traditional metal SLS 3D printers, they offer a cost-effective alternative. They also have a compact installation requirement and support the use of third-party materials, contributing to economical operations.

Xact Metal has also recently partnered with Oqton, an artificial intelligence software firm, to integrate their AM solutions. This partnership aims to provide cost-effective automation and comprehensive process control, making metal 3D technology accessible to a wide range of users in diverse industries.

The demand for metal 3D printing is growing across different sectors. Companies like Schoeller-Bleckmann Oilfield Technology (SBOT) and Volkswagen Group are investing in advanced metal 3D printers to expand their capabilities. SBOT has acquired Velo3D’s Sapphire XC large-format 3D printer to focus on producing Inconel 718 metal parts. Volkswagen has added a second MetalFAB system to their portfolio, along with parameter development tools, to improve efficiency and reduce waste.

As the additive manufacturing sector continues to evolve, there are still engineering challenges that need to be tackled in the coming decade. The future of 3D printing holds immense potential, and these partnerships and advancements in technology are bringing us closer to realizing that potential.
