Robotic 3D metal printing scale-up MX3D

23 April 2021

DOEN Participaties, PDENH, and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) invest EUR 2.25M in Robotic 3D metal printing scale-up MX3D. The funds will be used to launch the M1, a complete robotic metal AM system, including a welding robot, software, and control system to 3D print metal parts in-house. 

Additionally, the investments will speed up the development of MetalXL, a solution including software and a control system, that turns existing welding robots into industrial-grade 3D metal printers.

Robotic 3D metal printing company MX3D, known for the 3D printed stainless steel bridge in Amsterdam, is widely recognized as a key pioneer in the robotic wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) industry. As one of the market leaders in this new promising field of 3D printing, the MX3D technology opens the doors to the advantages of additive manufacturing for high-impact industries like Oil & Gas, Maritime, and Tooling.

MX3D’s software and control system, MetalXL, turns existing welding robots into an industrial metal AM system and allows users to manage the whole process from design to print in one go. Since its first investment, MX3D has successfully introduced MetalXL with a large group of launching customers. The current investment will be used for the commercial rollout.

Simultaneously, the company launches its M1 metal AM system: a full solution for a customer to start printing, including a welding robot, software, and control system.
