ExOne: Customised and low volume 316L stainless steel firearms components using Binder Jetting technology

ExOne® Binder Jetting 3D printing technology offers Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) producers an effective route to overcome the challenges of low volume and customised component production where tooling costs make conventional production unviable. The technology has the added advantages of being able to use existing MIM furnaces for sintering and, thanks to recent system enhancements, standard MIM grade powders.

In the following article the team from The ExOne Company (ExOne) highlights recent innovations along with the use of the technology by US custom firearms component specialist Wicked Grips.
