3D-Printing Milestone: Puris 3D Prints Largest Titanium Part – Business Wire (press release)

by • January 19, 2016 • No Comments

BRUCETON MILLS, W. Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Puris, LLC (www.purisllc.com) revealed in the present day that it not long ago achieved a primary 3D-printing milestone: Puris that successfully generated the biggest, hard, 3D-printed titanium part for commercial use. The part was printed via ExOne® [NASDAQ: XONE] binder-jetting innovation and was processed to 100 percent density. Measuring an estimated 19” x 19” x 11” inches with a cross-section thickness of 0.375-inch, the part weighs almost 31 lb.

“There is a lot of activity in this arena and sizeable-bodiedr parts have been printed, but we believe this is the biggest hard titanium part to be printed to date,” Puris’ CEO Craig Kirsch said. “The milestone was achieved by the combination of our team’s deep metallurgical and powder-production expertise and ExOne binder-jetting innovation. It is worthwhile that the part was processed to full density and printed safely via low-cost, on the market powder.”
The part was generated for an aerospace customer on ExOne M-Print™ 3D printing device at Puris’ Bruceton Mills plant under the way of the Puris metallurgy team. The use of binder-jetting innovation allowed Puris to print the part at room temperature, eliminating residual stress buildup, as well as the chemical-property and microstructure changes that occur in other metal 3D-printing technologies; these are significant aspects to commercial use of 3D-printed parts, according to Kirsch.
“We are actively working on a number of createment programs with other customers interested in delivering sizeable-bodied, 3D-printed parts into the additive making mainstream. Size is already constrained just by the printing device box itself, that presents innovation opportunities for ExOne to create sizeable-bodiedr direct-printing machines,” Kirsch introduced. The current ExOne M-Print print box is 32” x 20” x 16”.
Puris has printed sizeable-bodied parts via Inconel alloy powder as well, and is able-bodied to print with other high-performance alloys.
