Xact Metal
Software Features

Adaptive Charge

Adaptive charge is a software feature that automatically adjusts the powder deposition rate based on the size and position of the parts being printed. By programming the machine to understand each aspect of the build, we can estimate material required and adjust powder dispersion accordingly. This allows for a fixed level of user knowledge required for machine operation, more efficient powder usage, and time savings for the operator.

Chamber setup screen allows customer to optimize print parameters
Build queue screen provides a description of all builds to be printed
Monitoring screen shows behavior of important parameters such as bed temperature, chamber temperature and pressure and oxygen percentage

Smart Layer: AI Enabled Build Monitoring

Smart Layer is an intelligent monitoring solution designed for metal additive manufacturing. Smart Layer conducts a layer-by-layer analysis using computer vision algorithms and convolutional neural networks, then provides anomaly detection in real-time. Issue detection includes:
• Part swelling
• Spatter detection
• Streak detection
• Hop detection
• Anomaly in real-time

Open Material Parameters

With the purchase of the open parameters package, the chamber control tab allows the operator to live-adjust fundamental aspects of the print including bed temperature, melting power, scan speed and recoat speed.

Local Build Access

Access previously uploaded builds and download past build history through the “Builds” tab on touch interface. An available build file can be set as the active print with the “Load” option, without repeating the upload process. New build files may be added from an inserted USB storage drive or through an ethernet port.

The Xm200G is a metal 3d printer by Xact Metal that was designed based on the the prior model, the XM200C

The GUI (graphic user interface) for Xact Metal printers makes loading files, setting up builds and monitoring the build process quick and easy.
