Xact Metal has announced the launch of the XM300G series of metal 3D printers, which aim to bring affordable metal 3D printing to small to medium-sized companies.
The series of mid-sized 3D printers was unveiled at IMTS 2022 in Chicago, Illinois and marketed as affordable.
“With pricing beginning at $200,000 US dollars (£174,300), the XM300G series is ideal for printing high quantities or large parts where print speed is critical,” said Xact Metal CEO Juan Mario Gomez.
“Based on the XM200G multi-laser printer platform, the introduction of the XM300G is another example of how Xact Metal continues to combine the requirements of metal powder-bed fusion and advanced technology to establish a new level of price and performance for additive manufacturing.”
Xact Metal said the XM300G family offers a single, dual, or quad-independent laser system, with 100% overlapping print zones that introduce industrial speed and performance at an affordable price, allowing small-to-medium companies to benefit from metal laser powder-bed fusion technology.
XM300G 3D printers should offer a build volume of 300x300x350 mm, with the option to upgrade it to 300x300x450 mm, a selection of 400W or 700W fibre lasers, and an interchangeable build platform to reduce printing cycle time.
All these features should make the XM300G well-suited to support a wide variety of additive manufacturing applications.
Xact Metal said that it has already received orders for the XM300G and that shipments are scheduled to start in 3Q 2023.
“Xact Metal aims to further expand the use of metal 3D printing in multiple industries including aerospace, automotive, and general manufacturing,” says Gomez.
“The XM300G and XM200G printers are tailored to customers starting their entry into metal 3D printing in various applications, including product development, manufacturing, research, and education”.
