xcast 3D printing resin

xCAST

xCAST is tailored specifically for the production of precision investment casting patterns on the NXE400 3D printer.

xCAST is a much more economical and scalable alternative to all other direct and indirect metal 3D printing solutions on the market today and comes with Nexa3D’s validated workflow including:

  • Cleaner burnout for a variety of metals, including titanium and aluminum alloys.
  • Faster pattern printing and draining for a variety of sizes as well as complex and lightweighted patterns
  • 20X productivity gain over traditional and additive alternatives leveraging in-foundry or near-foundry toolless production of precision patterns same day, not in weeks or months

xCAST delivers precision patterns for rapid prototyping and series production that seamlessly integrate into any production foundry’s dip-shell or flask-type investment casting process delivering toolless semi-hollow plastic patterns in lieu of wax patterns. xCAST patterns are processed similarly to wax without autoclave and are flash fired from the ceramic mold. Featuring low ash content, xCAST can be used to create high resolution parts with excellent surface finish.

xCAST is an ideal production of lightweighted structures and complex shape including generatively designed parts and assemblies .

Unique Features:
  • ideal for in foundry series production of small, large and complex metal parts
  • offers a toolless, faster, and a more accurate alternative to traditional pattern production
Applications:
  • Aerospace
  • Defense
  • Automotive
  • oil and gas
  • heavy industry application

PBT powder

xPBT

Nexa3D xPBT is the first-ever PBT powder commercially available for selective laser sintering. The material is the ideal solution for small series production via additive manufacturing in industrial applications such as automotive electronics.

  • Well-known material with dielectric properties
  • PBT powder for selective laser sintering

xPBT is the fi rst material from DSM’s powder platform, offering customers a widely-known material in the industrial sector which can now be considered for small series production of end use parts.

As 3D printing evolves from prototyping to industrial manufacturing, customers need materials such as xPBT to meet their stringent demands. Current solutions do not meet application requirements for industrial applications, such as automotive electronics or applications that need to perform under high temperatures. xPBT has the same dielectric properties as material used in injection molding processes, making it a material engineers are familiar with and prepared to use.

Developed for a wide sinter window, the powder is extremely easy to print. Additionally, xPBT is environmentally friendly with a high reuse rate and is recyclable to the extent that the material can be brought back to the powder bed process.

Key Benefits
  • A well-known material that can be adopted quickly
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Extremely easy to print
  • Improved dimensional stability due to lower moisture uptake
  • Less waste due to >60% reuse rate
  • Recyclable: non-reusable material can be brought back to the powder bed process
Applications
  • Connectors
  • Automotive Electronics
  • Electrical
  • Lighting

xclean washing fluid

xCLEAN washing Solvent for All Resin-based 3D Printers

xCLEAN is an effective and environmentally friendly washing solvent that is designed to work consistently with most photopolymer 3D printers and resin systems available on the market.

xCLEAN has three times the saturation limit of IPA, meaning less waste and fewer changeovers for additive manufacturers. xCLEAN is safer to handle than other cleaning solvents and does not require any special storage or adherence to shipping regulations typically associated with post processing photopolymeric parts.  Compatible with most cleaning systems on the market, xCLEAN is made from smaller molecules than TPM or DPM, eliminating the greasy residue that is typically associated with these alternatives.

xCLEAN can be easily recycled and recovered with a vacuum-assist solvent distillation unit, and it is compatible with most automated washing units on the market today including closed loop systems. xCLEAN is not cleared for use when cleaning parts printed from biocompatible resins, and customers are advised to closely follow wash recommendations to preserve the material’s biocompatibility.

Unique Features
  • Sustainable: Lasts 3X longer than isopropyl alcohol with less waste and fewer changeovers
  • Effective: Eliminates the greasy residue typically associated with TPM or DPM
  • Compatible: Works quickly with most resin cleaning systems on the market
