The ExOne Company, the global leader in industrial sand and metal 3D printers using binder jetting technology, announced today that ABC Corporation is now an authorized channel partner to sell ExOne industrial 3D printing solutions in South Korea.
According to Ben Leung, ExOne Vice President, Asia, “There is so much possibility in creating sand cores and moulds for complex castings that we are thrilled to welcome ABC Corporation into our distribution network. ABC’s foundry experience will help ExOne reach the local market to share the many benefits of incorporating sand binder jetting into their business models.”
Mr. JH Lee, Deputy GM of ABC Corporation expressed, “By partnering with ExOne, ABC Corporation is delighted to have the opportunity to introduce the state-of-the-art technology into traditional foundry processes. We expect the ExOne 3D printer business to meet the needs of our customers to successfully implement modern casting that requires very complex and thin geometries.”
ExOne’s Industrial 3D Printing Solutions
ExOne’s patented binder jet 3D printing process transforms powdered materials — metal, sand or ceramic — into highly dense and functional precision parts or tooling at high speeds. An industrial printhead selectively deposits a binder into 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 reduce turnaround times from weeks and months to just days. The technology is viewed as a production method that increases the sustainability of casting with high levels of material recyclability, low waste, reduced scrap through improved mold quality, and the ability to consolidate and lightweight parts.
Lee added, “Automotive companies and their tier-one suppliers are committed to innovating castings for electric vehicles with the goal of developing lightweight, thin-walled designs that are durable enough to improve fuel efficiency. Because of the limited development period for new models fast and accurate iterations are essential, and this is where we think ExOne matches the industry needs. As the world leader in binder jet technology, ExOne’s long experience and their latest technology advancements will help our customers gain the upper hand in the upcoming competition.”
ExOne, the industrial 3D printing solutions provider, has qualified more than 20 metal, ceramic, and composite materials for its binder jetting process. A variety of sand materials, including silica casting sand and Cerabeads®, are matched with different binder combinations, including inorganic binder, for both ferrous and nonferrous sandcasting processes.
