Cost Calculator Estimates Costs for Metal Binder JettingAugust 19, 2021
New: the ExOne Production Metal Cost Calculator, an online estimating tool for companies considering moving production of metal parts to high-speed binder jet 3D printing. ExOne’s calculator is designed to provide manufacturers with a per-part estimate for binder jet 3D printing a precision metal part so they can quickly compare the technology to other forms of traditional and additive manufacturing.
The new tool, housed on ExOne’s website, requires just a few inputs—material, machine, part dimensions and volume—and is based on the purchase of any one of ExOne’s four Pro-series printers.
“As customers compare new binder jetting options in the marketplace, we wanted to provide greater transparency into the affordable costs of binder jetting with ExOne technology,” says John Hartner, ExOne’s CEO. “Our new estimating tool takes a comprehensive range of costs into account, such as initial capital investment, throughput speeds, material, binder, replacement printheads and more.”
