Heat Treating

  • Parts are heat treated to minimize residual stresses and reduce risk of dimensional changes upon part removal.
  • *Xact Metal does not manufacture or sell commercial furnaces, but is able to provide recommendations upon request.

  • Industry standard polishing processes can be used to finish the part.
  • Processes may include light abrasive finishing, media blasting, or electro-polishing.

The capabilities of the XM200G  make it well-suited for dental applications, which typically require a fast printing speed, quick job turnover, a high-quality surface finish, and the ability to print very fine components. Designed for easy integration into a facility, the XM200G fits through a standard doorway and requires minimal operation training.
