Vertex Manufacturing to use Xerox® ElemX™ 3D Printer to deliver Aluminum 3D Printing applications

Xerox® Elem™ Additive Solutions and Vertex Manufacturing – A PrinterPrezz Company have announced a partnership that will demonstrate  Xerox’s liquid metal 3D printing capabilities.

As a reminder, Xerox is both an investor in forward-thinking AM companies and an industrial machine manufacturer. The company develops a metal 3D printing solution called ElemX that uses cost-effective aluminum wire for parts production. It can be easily deployed and does not require  any special facility modifications for operation. The machine manufacturer explains that its solution requires minimal post-processing and therefore provides a faster time-to-part.

The commercialisation of this machine started in February 2021. With the ElemX added to its portfolio of advanced manufacturing technologies, Vertex becomes a valuable addition to the Xerox® Elem™ Additive Solutions Manufacturing Partner Network.

Our business is committed to delivering products and services that meet or exceed our customers’ quality and schedule requirements,” says Tim Warden, vice president of sales & marketing at Vertex. “We decided to partner with Xerox because the ElemX technology gives us an added advantage to build parts faster and more reliably for our customers.”

The relationship with Vertex enables our Elem Additive business to scale and support our customers better than before,” said Tali Rosman, Elem Additive general manager and vice president at Xerox. “Between the two organizations, there are decades of experience in advanced manufacturing, so we are thrilled to push the limits of this technology together.”

. Until now, the ability to 3D print aluminum consistently and reliably has challenged the market. Unlike other metal 3D printing technologies, there are no hazardous metal powders with ElemX and no need for PPE or other considerable safety measures. Engineered to bring simplicity to the supply chain process, ElemX is the ideal option for spares, repairs and low-volume production parts, Xerox notes.

This is the next step in our journey, and we plan to continue advancing our vision for more resilient supply chains in 2022 working with partners like Vertex”, Rosman concludes.
