3DX Industries Metal Printed OEM Replacement Parts a Success

SEATTLE, WA, April 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3DX Industries, Inc. (OTC: DDDX) (the “Company” or “3DX”), has achieved exceptional performance results from its series of production run parts manufactured for use by Alaska General Seafoods (“AGS”).  The parts were designed by 3DX for AGS as OEM replacement parts in their seafood canning line and are currently in use at the AGS facility in Alaska. The parts were manufactured using a binder jet additive process, with no post machining required.

“Knowing these parts were going to be used in such a remote location under extreme conditions was a challenge that we were excited to address,” states 3DX President and CEO, Roger Janssen.  “Any shutdown in their processing facility due to these parts not meeting OEM standards, was not an option.  Knowing the strength of the finished product we were confident it would satisfy the demands placed on these parts.”

Karry Lattig of Alaska General states, “We are very pleased with how these parts have performed during our production seasons.  They were in a high contact/high use section of our production line, and they performed beyond what we expected they would.  After 2 full seasons under extreme conditions, there is virtually no wear on these parts, which in comparison to the original parts we were using is nothing short of exceptional.  There has been no shut down required to remove and replace worn parts using the metal printed parts from 3DX which has not only saved us time, but costs as well. We will continue to use 3DX Industries to supply us with new and replacement parts for our facilities as needed throughout the coming seasons.”

Mr. Janssen adds, “We are very excited with the look, feel and performance of the products being produced using binder additive metal printing.  The time and cost savings to our customers continues to be a significant advantage over traditional manufacturing processes.” 

3DX uses an additive manufacturing process, otherwise known as three-dimensional printing which materializes an object—or mold for an object—layer by layer out of powdered material, a binding agent and a digital file.  The process is also referred to as Binder Jetting Technology.

About Binder Jet: Binder Jetting is a powder bed process, where a binder is used to selectively ‘print’ the desired part shape by adhesively joining the metal particles. After the jetting process, the green part is sintered in a furnace to burn off the binder and then an infiltrant, typically bronze, is melted and drawn into the part to fill in the remaining spaces within the sintered metal powder skeleton to create a dense component. The resulting parts combine properties from both the metal powder and the infiltrant.
