Innovent X - 3D Printers - Desktop Metal - Indicate Technologies

Innovent X

The Innovent X from Desktop Metal is a compact and affordable 3D printing solution designed for research and development, education, and low-volume production. With its advanced binder jetting technology, the Innovent X allows users to create complex metal parts with exceptional accuracy and surface finish, using a wide range of metal powders. The system features an intuitive software interface, a compact design that fits on a tabletop, and a user-friendly material handling system that allows for easy powder loading and unloading. With the Innovent X, you can accelerate your product development process, explore new design possibilities, and bring your ideas to life with metal 3D printing.

Product Features 

High-quality prints
The Innovent X uses binder jetting technology and a high-resolution printhead to produce detailed and accurate prints with smooth surfaces.

Large build volume
The Innovent X has a build volume of 240 x 135 x 100 mm, which allows users to create larger parts and batches of parts in a single print run.

Fast printing speed
The Innovent X can print at speeds of up to 6000 cm3/h, which is up to 100 times faster than other binder jetting systems.

Easy to use
The Innovent X has a user-friendly interface and software, making it easy for both beginners and experts to operate and control.
Versatile materials
The Innovent X can print a wide range of materials, including metals, ceramics, and composites, which allows users to create parts with a variety of physical and mechanical properties.

The Innovent X is designed for small to medium-sized businesses, but it can also be used in larger-scale production settings with multiple machines.

Low-cost operation
The Innovent X uses a unique fluid recycling system, which reduces material costs and minimizes waste, making it a cost-effective option for businesses.

Safe and eco-friendly
The Innovent X is equipped with safety features, such as automated powder handling and a dust filtration system, to protect users from potentially harmful materials. Additionally, its recycling system reduces waste and promotes sustainability.



Wide Material Capability

The X-Series binder jet 3D prints a wide variety of materials, including metals, ceramics, and composites. This flexibility is achieved through Triple ACT which enables the use of both high- and low-flow materials, as well as small and large particle sizes. The X-Series is used to process stainless steels, tool steels, nickel alloys, aluminum and titanium alloys, metal composites and ceramics, such as silicon carbide and aluminum-infiltrated boron carbide (B4C).

Tight Tolerances

With density variation across the build area, dimensional tolerances can be controlled within 1-2.5% on a first print run. With optimization for production, X-Series systems routinely achieve dimensional tolerances of less than 1%, all while maintaining post-sintered densities from 97% to better than 99% for most metals.

Excellent Surface Quality

The X-series achieves world-class surface finish through the combined benefits of the Triple ACT system and precision binder placement. High print bed density and optimized binder placement all but eliminate binder bleed and overspray, producing excellent edge definition, surface quality, and surface finish as low as 4 µm Ra.
