METAL XL

Print 3D metal parts from design to print in one go

MetalXL enables industrial 3D metal printing of medium to large metal parts in-house, using robotic WAAM technology (Wire Arc Additive Manufacturing).

METAL XL

MetalXL joins an industrial robot and power source and transforms it into an industrial-grade 3D metal printer

Its streamlined end-to-end workflow allows users to easily manage the printing process from design to print.
MetalXL is WAAM-dedicated, hardware independent, and allows 3D metal printing at substantially lower CAPEX and OPEX.

BENEFITS

Speed

MetalXL enables customers to start-up 3D metal printing fast and at lower costs by combining a standard industrial robot and power source.

End-to-end

MetalXL is a dedicated tool for WAAM-technology that is able to go from design to print in one workflow.

Intelligent automation

The software has built-in checks on design feasibility while the robot kinematics simulation ensures a printable, optimized toolpath.

Continuous monitoring

The user interface allows you to track the progress and quality of the print process live as well as monitor events and issues during printing.

WORKFLOW

METAL XL CONTROL SYSTEMS

Better, faster and easier industrial 3D metal printing

MetalXL comes with an Intelligent Control System directly connected to the robotic WAAM system for enhanced print performance. It improves consistent performance and productivity by smart sensors for continuous monitoring while supporting the operator with real-time feedback and advanced insights into the printing process.
