ExOne has opened a metal 3D printing customer center at its European headquarters in Gersthofen, Germany.

According to the company, the facility offers benchmarks, design support, and materials, process, and work cell development, as well as metal binder jetting, a process whereby an industrial inkjet printhead selectively deposits a binder into a bed of powder particles creating a solid part, one thin layer at a time. When printing metals, the final part must be sintered in a furnace to fuse the particles together into a high-density solid object.

‘Our centralized location outside of Munich gives manufacturers the opportunity to see metal binder jetting in action and work closely with our expanded metal team on precision metal parts projects,’ said Eric Bader, Managing Director, ExOne GmbH.
