3DX Industries Further Expands its Metal Printing Capabilities Offering Proprietary Powders That Enable Exceptional Part Performance
Seattle WA, November 10, 2015 – 3DX Industries Inc. (OTCQB: DDDX) 3DX Industries Inc., (the “Company” or “3DX”) is pleased to announce the expansion of the company’s additive manufacturing capabilities with the introduction of new metal powders that enable the printing of complex wear resistant parts for both existing and new industrial customers.
By offering these proprietary alloys and the performance properties they deliver, 3DX Industries is poised for further growth in many markets including the tool & die, agriculture, energy, and oil & gas industries. Using Binder Jet additive manufacturing for prototypes and production runs allows the company to print parts in a variety of sizes and complexities at significantly reduced lead times and is often more cost effective than other additive manufacturing processes.
In collaboration with NanoSteel®, a leader in nano-structured steel materials design, 3DX Industries now offers NanoSteel’s two new proprietary metal powders, BLDRmetal™ J-10 and J-11 which are designed for components that operate in abrasive environments. Parts made with BLDRmetal™ J-10 provide 2X the elongation and approximately 3X the wear resistance and impact toughness of an equivalent 420 stainless steel matrix while those made with BLDRmetal™ J-11 provide 10X the wear resistance of a 420 stainless steel matrix in lower impact applications.
“Offering this line of BLDRmetal™ powders brings the advantage of much greater durability in our printed components to our customer base” states Roger Janssen, President and CEO of 3DX Industries. “Witnessing the performance of these proprietary powders in both testing as well as real-world applications with our clients demonstrates the value of these properties. Critical working parts like pumps, impellers, rotors and turbines can all significantly benefit from these materials.”
3DX Industries is continuing to expand its capabilities in the additive manufacturing arena as new and complex parts are designed and created for customers.

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.
