SLM Solutions sells another NXG Xll 600, this time to Collins Aerospace 3D Printer Hardware

Collins Aerospace has acquired an NXG Xll 600 for its facility in West Des Moines, Iowa from SLM Solutions. The facility is a world leader in the design and production of engine nozzles and is now bringing that manufacturing expertise to additive. The new printer will help the company produce additively manufactured aerospace parts faster. This brings the total publicly disclosed number of NXG systems sold to 13 since the giant 12-laser metal L-PBF 3D printer was announced last year (however more machines were sold to yet undisclosed customers).
