3DX Industries Inc. is a Precision Manufacturing company capable of producing a wide range of products using additive and subtractive manufacturing processes. Using our state of the art 3D Metal Printing System, Composite Printing equipment and numerous CNC Precision Machining Centers, 3DX Industries will exceed your expectations for prototype, production and assembly services.
3DX Industries uses Binder Jetting technology to 3D print complex parts. Binder Jetting is a powder bed process, where a binding agent 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. An infiltrant, typically bronze, is then melted and drawn into the part to fill in the spaces of the sintered metal powder skeleton to create a fully dense component.
The three-dimensional printing process produces fully functional metal parts directly from CAD files. The benefits of the Binder Jet process include enhanced part design flexibility, complex internal geometries, undercuts, angled passages, and the opportunity to create component features that cannot be duplicated with traditional machining methods. The 3D printing process generates single-piece and multi-piece designs with shortened lead times at significantly lower costs.
Not Only 3D Printing
In addition to our 3D Metal Printing and post-processing capabilities, 3DX has a full array of CNC machining centers capable of high speed precision milling up to large capacity vertical machining to meet the most demanding specifications our clients require. We also have an in-house 3D Composite printer for smaller component, prototype and production runs. Using our composite printing system, we can offer our clients a low cost quick turnaround option on prototype parts and components for designer review and engineer evaluation prior to final production runs.
3DX Industries is your source for 3D Metal printed products, composite printing and precision machining services. Our team offers in-house design support, rapid prototyping, production, and assembly services.
We commit to each project and are dedicated to customer satisfaction.
3DX has a dedicated additive manufacturing division to handle all your 3D Printing requirements from start to finish. Our print lab includes two M-Flex 3D Metal printers, a Remet CFS 500 Vacuum Furnace w/Gas Quench and a Modix B60 FDM printer along with other support equipment to facilitate post processing and finishing.
We are capable of printing in a variety of metal powders including:
Infiltration options include Bronze, Copper, and Tin
Additional customized powders are currently in development for 3D Metal printing. 3DX Industries offers full engineering support for material selection on any new projects.
Contact us to discuss a solution to problem parts with wear and/or corrosion issues.
The 3DX Team uses CAD/CAM software and modern inspection equipment to guarantee your parts meet drawing tolerances. We are fully committed to delivering quality products; our metrology lab ensures precision by using state of the art measuring instruments including a Brown & Sharpe CMM.
Our well-tooled subtractive manufacturing division includes 12 vertical machining centers, 4th axis capabilities, up to 15,000 RPM, 96″ travel, lathes and numerous miscellaneous support machines.
Please view our Equipment List for more detailed information
3DX Industries is capable of working with a variety of materials including tool steel, aluminum, plastic, stainless steel, copper, and titanium.
Highly-detailed prototypes created from metal and plastic/composite materials can be used to demonstrate and test our customer’s designs prior to final production.
Our 3D Printing systems are capable of providing high precision, exceptionally detailed prototypes to give the look and feel of your final product. 3DX’s CAD/CAM prototyping uses CNC machining to provide rapid prototyping services, high speed milling and large capacity vertical machining.
For those without CAD drawings, our design team can reverse engineer a variety of custom and vintage parts. Our prototypes have been used by injection molders, automotive repair shops and wholesale aircraft part suppliers to create general parts like rotors, seat assemblies, cutting blades. We can also prototype your art or jewelry designs.
3D Metal Printed and/or Precision machined compact turbine components are appropriate for green energy, military and aerospace industries.
Contact us for your high wear/corrosion resistant parts manufactured using Formetrix metals proprietary metal powders; BLDRmetal™ J-10 and J-11, designed for building highly wear resistant industrial components using binder jet additive manufacturing.
Parts made with bronze infiltrated BLDR J-10 have 3x the wear resistance and nearly 3x the impact toughness of a bronze infiltrated 420 stainless steel component made using the same method. If even higher wear resistance is required, BLDR J-11 can be selected to deliver 10x the wear of a bronze infiltrated 420SS component.
Our CNC milling centers can machine parts measuring up to 96”. We are able to custom manufacture one-of-a-kind parts and also deliver high-volume, wholesale production runs.
Contract manufacturing and assembly services can take a project from raw product to finished goods.
We have partnered with businesses of all sizes to assemble Rankine Cycle Turbines, gear boxes and more.
