  • Xact Metal supports the next generation of innovative manufacturing solutions powered

    by metal 3D printing

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (April 7, 2017) Metal additive manufacturing technology is

    evolving quickly from a niche tool used primarily in university research to an industry tool

    used to develop and manufacture products faster and at a lower cost. Xact Metal, a new

    company launched in early 2017, is making metal additive manufacturing systems

    affordable for small- to mid-sized companies to afford.

    “At Xact Metal, we’re taking the essential specs that direct metal additive manufacturing

    systems require and combining them with breakthrough technology to establish a new

    level of price and performance,” said Juan Mario Gomez, CEO of Xact Metal. “We’d like

    manufacturers to experience the benefits of high-quality 3D metal printing at the best

    price possible. Xact Metal aims to change the perception that additive manufacturing is

    only for capital-rich companies.”

    The company is on schedule to launch its first product this May, with shipments planned

    for the third quarter of this year.

    “We recognize the need for additive manufacturing to offer higher performance in a

    sustainable way,” said Matt Woods, CTO of Xact Metal. “More than just spotting a market

    gap, we are working on a new line of printers to allow more customers access to systems

    without sacrificing performance.”

    Xact Metal plans to unveil its first product at RAPID + TCT 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pa. May 8-

    10 (booth 737); and will attend the Additive Manufacturing conference in Knoxville, Tenn.

    Oct. 10-12; Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany Nov. 14-17; and the Defense Manufacturing

    Conference in Tampa, Fla. Dec. 4-7.

    Xact Metal has received funding from Ben Franklin Technology Partners, and is

    headquartered at Penn State’s Innovation Park, home to some of the leading tech

    companies in Pennsylvania. State College, Pennsylvania has been voted one of the top

    10 best small towns to live and one of the top 10 places for start-up businesses in the

  • STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (May 4, 2017) Xact Metal today announces the launch of the XM200, the first 3D printer offered by the company. Established as a metal additive manufacturing systems provider in early 2017, Xact Metal is making metal additive manufacturing systems affordable for small to midsized companies, research labs and universities.

    “Priced at $120,000, the XM200 is our first industrial 3D printer, offering outstanding performance and affordability,” said Juan Mario Gomez, CEO of Xact Metal. “We believe it will be make a big impact on customers’ Additive Manufacturing needs.”

    The XM200 printer features a large build volume of 125 in3 (5x5x5 in.) or 2049 cc3 (127x127x125 mm), a 250W fiber laser, and a patent-pending high-speed scanner which fuses at speeds up to 1.5 meter/sec. Its laser beam is constantly orthogonal across the entire powder bed surface, enabling it to produce consistent fusing characteristics throughout the complete build area.
