FreeFORM Technologies is a new contract manufacturer specializing in metal binder jet 3D printing. The company was founded this fall by a team of experienced engineers (left to right):
“ExOne is proud to partner with the innovative and experienced team at FreeFORM, who will help customers tap the incredible value offered by our high-speed binder jetting technology,” said
“We believe metal binder jetting is a revolutionary technology that represents the next generation of metal production using metal powders,” said FreeFORM President
ExOne’s patented binder jet 3D printing process transforms powdered materials — metal, sand or ceramic — into highly dense and functional precision parts 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. The technology is viewed as a desirable and sustainable production method, largely because of its high speed, low waste and cost, as well as material flexibility.
Launched in 2016, the Innovent family of 3D printers has become the world's best-selling and most-researched metal binder jetting system, with machines installed worldwide at some of the world's best-known universities and industrial brands. The Innovent+ is compact, easy to use, and affordable. Loaded with ExOne’s patented Triple Advanced Compaction Technology (ACT), the system delivers industry-leading quality and repeatability, with final dimensional tolerances routinely below 1% with tuning.
FreeFORM is a first-of-its-kind metal binder jet 3D printing contract manufacturer. Founded in 2020 by a group of engineers, FreeFORM aims to bring binder jet technology to the masses through technology adoption. FreeFORM’s co-founders bring a diverse outlook into metals manufacturing and are committed to providing world-class services to the customer while providing low cost of ownership and speed to market. Our vision is to be the benchmark for additive manufacturing. Learn more about FreeFORM at www.freeformtech.com
