Additive manufacturing (AM) company ExOne has named foundry specialist ABC Corporation as its distributor in South Korea.

‘ABC’s foundry experience will help ExOne reach the local market to share the many benefits of incorporating sand binder jetting into their business models,’ said Ben Leung, ExOne vice president, Asia.

‘By partnering with ExOne, ABC Corporation is delighted to have the opportunity to introduce the state-of-the-art technology into traditional foundry processes,’ added JH Lee, ABC Corporation manager.

‘Automotive companies and their tier-one suppliers are committed to innovating castings for electric vehicles with the goal of developing lightweight, thin-walled designs that are durable enough to improve fuel efficiency,’ he added. ‘Because of the limited development period for new models fast and accurate iterations are essential, and this is where we think ExOne matches the industry needs.’
