Additive Manufacturing Printed Light Metal Parts - German OEM Places Follow-Up Order for 3D Printer
Voxeljet AG has received a follow-up order for two additional VX1300X high-speed 3D printing systems for a German premium car manufacturer as part of the "Industrialization of Core Printing" (ICP) cooperation project.
They are ten times faster than previous models and integrated into fully automated postprocessing solutions. The follow-up order comes as part of a frame contract concluded in 2018 between Voxeljet, its partners and a leading German car maker.
Dr. Ingo Ederer, founder and CEO of voxeljet commented: “With this order we reached a significant milestone in our mission to bring 3D printing into high-volume industrial production. This is extremely exciting, as it not only highlights the significance of our technology, but also the confidence this leading German car maker has in the new solution and the players behind it. Together with our partners, we can today offer a solution for the mass production of complex sand cores for light metal parts at, what we believe to be, a fraction of the costs as compared to other players in the additive manufacturing industry. With the new environmental-friendly binder system, there are zero emissions during the casting of the sand cores. The casted, complex light-metal parts can have superior characteristics, such as less weight and new features, and can ultimately help to reduce CO2 emissions substantially.”
