Xerox Elem Additive Solutions and trusted industrial manufacturer, Vertex Manufacturing – A PrinterPrezz Company, announced an agreement to add the Xerox ElemX 3D metal printer to Vertex’s Cincinnati facility and begin offering contract manufacturing services with Xerox’s liquid metal capabilities.
The ElemX leverages Xerox’s liquid metal technology that uses aluminum wire and is easily deployed, requiring no special facility modifications for operation. The ElemX requires minimal post-processing and therefore provides a fast time-to-part. By adding the ElemX to its existing fleet of advanced manufacturing technologies, Vertex bolsters its capabilities and becomes a valuable addition to the Xerox Elem Additive Solutions Manufacturing Partner Network.
The ElemX 3D printer was commercially introduced in February 2021, and over the past year, Elem Additive Solutions has grown, including opening an Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Cary, NC. This contract manufacturing agreement with Vertex is another important milestone for Xerox.
ElemX is a safe and simple metal 3D printing technology addressing supply chain resiliency for transportation, aerospace, defense and industrial manufacturing. Until now, the ability to 3D print aluminum consistently and reliably has challenged the market. Unlike other metal 3D printing technologies, there are no hazardous metal powders with ElemX and no need for PPE or other considerable safety measures. Engineered to bring simplicity to the supply chain process, ElemX is a good option for spares, repairs and low-volume production parts.
