Additive Manufacturing has been identified by both government and education experts as a critical solution in smart manufacturing and an important component of Industry 4.0. Future technicians, engineers and scientists are often limited in hands-on training because of the high cost, centralization and unavailability of the metal additive manufacturing printers.
The Xact Metal XM200C system addresses these needs as a reliable, affordable and accessible metal powder-bed fusion 3D printer. With simple set-up, intuitive simple-to-use interface and rapid turn-around between prints, the XM200C increases the number of students receiving important hands-on printing training.
