NORTH HUNTINGDON, Pa .– (BUSINESS WIRE) – ExOne Company (Nasdaq: XONE), the world’s leading supplier of industrial sand and metal 3D printers with binder jetting technology, announced today that ABC Corporation is now an authorized distributor for the sale of ExOne- Industry solutions in South Korea is.
“There are so many ways to make sand cores and molds for complex castings that we are thrilled to have ABC Corporation join our distribution network,” said Ben Leung, ExOne Vice President, Asia. “ABC’s experience in the foundry will help ExOne reach the local market and share the many benefits of incorporating sand binders into their business models.”
“By partnering with ExOne, ABC Corporation is excited to have the opportunity to introduce the latest technology into traditional foundry processes. We expect the ExOne 3D printer business to meet the needs of our customers to successfully implement modern castings that require very complex and thin geometries, ”said JH Lee, Assistant GM, ABC Corporation.
ExOne’s patented binder jet 3D printing process transforms powdery materials – metal, sand or ceramics – into high-density and functional precision parts or tools at high speed. An industrial print head selectively deposits a binder in a bed of powder particles, creating a solid part one thin layer at a time, just like printing on sheets of paper. Sand 3D printing can help cut lead times from weeks and months to just days. The technology is seen as a production method that increases the sustainability of the cast through a high level of material recyclability, low waste, less scrap through improved mold quality, and the ability to consolidate and lightweight parts.
“Automotive companies and their leading suppliers are advocating innovative castings for electric vehicles to create lightweight, thin-walled structures that are durable enough to improve fuel efficiency. With the limited development time for new models, fast and accurate iterations are imperative and we believe ExOne meets the needs of the industry here. As the global leader in binder jet technology, ExOne’s vast experience and the latest technological advances will help our customers gain the upper hand in the coming competition, ”said Lee.
ExOne has qualified more than 20 metals, ceramics and composites for its binder blasting process. A variety of sand materials, including silica casting sand and Cerabeads®, are combined with various binder combinations, including inorganic binders, for both ferrous and non-ferrous sand casting processes.
ExOne is the pioneer and world leader in binder jet 3D printing technology. Since 1995 we have made it our mission to deliver high-performance 3D printers that solve the most difficult problems and enable innovations that change around the world. Our 3D printing systems quickly transform powder materials – including metals, ceramics, composites, and sand – into precision parts, metal molds and cores, and innovative tooling solutions.
