Formalloy, an additive manufacturing company based out of San Diego, introduced the X-series laser metal deposition system starting at $200K at RAPID + TCT. The system features closed-loop control, variable-wavelength lasers, and Formfeed powder feeders for gradient/bi-metallic structures. The X-series can print with the most comprehensive list of metal alloys on the market. Each machine comes standard with the Formax Metal Deposition Head and a customizable build volume with up to 5-axes of motion.
Formalloy’s X-series uses scanning technology to monitor build quality and accuracy in real-time, and then auto-correct errors for defect free part. The efficient Formax head has built in quick-release features for easier maintenance and component swaps. Formalloy designs all components and systems to use open standards for powder supply, allowing the user to provide their own powders if desired. The X-series handles 3D metal part production, repair and cladding applications for a diverse set of industries.
