MX3D is the company that revealed the potential of robotic wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) to the industry. We have made 3D metal printing more flexible, faster and cheaper. By launching the first dedicated robotic WAAM software in 2019, we enabled companies, engineers and designers to print end-to-end large-scale 3D metal objects in-house. Now, MX3D is ready to transform industries further by introducing its turnkey M1 Metal AM System.

Robots are extending their reach. These multiaxis articulators are taking 3D manufacturing and fabrication to new heights, new part designs, greater complexity and production efficiencies. Integrated with systems to extend their reach even further, their flexibility is unmatched. Robots are virtually defying gravity in additive manufacturing (AM), tackle complex geometries in cutting, and collaborate with humans to improve efficiencies in composite layup. This is the future of 3D.

3D printing is already a multibillion-dollar industry, with much of the activity focused on building prototypes or small parts made from plastics and polymers. For metal parts, one additive process garnering lots of attention is robotic wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM).
