Zortrax introduces metal 3D printing options for desktop M300 Dual Additive Manufacturing

Zortrax is introducing a metal 3D printing option for the desktop M300 Dual 3D printer. The M300 Dual is compatible with an exceptionally broad selection of materials – starting from basic, economical filaments and flexible materials, through to engineering materials like nylon, and highly specialized, carbon- and glass-reinforced polymers for advanced technical applications. This wide range is now further expanded with two kits: Zortrax Full Metal Package 316L and Zortrax Full Metal Package 17-4 PH. Both sets contain all the essentials for desktop metal 3D printing, including metal-polymer filaments by BASF Forward AM: BASF Ultrafuse 316L and BASF Ultrafuse 17-4.

XJet to go public on NASDAQ via IPO Money & Funding

Israel’s XJet, which develops advanced nanoparticle material jetting technology for 3D printing of metal and ceramic parts, is seeking to raise about between $8 and $12 million from an initial public offering (IPO) of 2,000,000 shares on the Nasdaq. Together with Velo3D, XJet is the first of a new generation of AM hardware companies to go public and also the first one to do so via a “standard” IPO in recent years.
