Disrupting Manufacturing with 3D Printing

What if we could move 3D print from the lab to the manufacturing floor? Additive Manufacturing innovation is advancing rapidly, enabling the creation of complex parts in ways not possible with traditional manufacturing.

Xerox is constantly looking for new ways to deliver more value to our customers. We are leveraging our experience and expertise in digital printing to polymer and metal 3D printing technologies and will introduce new equipment, materials, services and design tools to the market.

The results? Customers will be able to get complex parts delivered faster. Take advantage of unique materials to enhance performance. Lower costs. And optimize build volumes, part properties, and support structures with advanced design and planning tools.

3D printing is poised to transform manufacturing. And we’re ready to lead the charge.

In today’s world, additive manufacturing has proven to be a technology that can change the production landscape forever. However, when it comes to metal additive manufacturing, many of the options available fall short of the economics and technical capabilities that are required for large scale adoption.

From automotive to aerospace, industry leaders are searching for disruptive manufacturing technology that solves this problem. As the leader in digital production printing and a provider of technology to the 3D industry for over 30 years, Xerox Liquid Metal Additive Manufacturing provides superior 3D solutions that enable users to shorten development cycles, reduce costs and minimize post-processing times.

Xerox multi-nozzle extruder is a 3D print technology that enables material extrusion products to print faster, with improved strength, all while maintaining part surface quality. It is a simple design that uses a set of nozzles – the more nozzles, the faster the speed – that can be turned on and off during the printing process to control print start and stop positions. Additionally, this technology can be made with larger nozzles to further increase its speed.

Polymer materials for additive manufacturing have widely been utilized for prototyping and modeling over the last few decades. However, there is a growing need for materials that match production part requirements and are consistent for machine and part reliability. Utilizing our background and expertise in the design and manufacture of powders for digital production printing, Xerox’s Advanced Material Solutions for 3D printing offers a range of new polymer materials that are consistently reliable and designed with production specifications in mind.

Additive manufacturing is set to transform how we design, customize, and fabricate production parts. However, what you design is often difficult to make. It’s common to see parts with key design features either missing or deformed. These failures are hard to predict.

Xerox, a leader in technology solutions, is building next generation software tools and digital workflows that will bring the same levels of efficiency and predictability to 3D printing. It’s allowing for better designs that meet functional requirements beyond the limits of human expertise. It can predict manufacturing failures and suggest design or process changes, giving designers the chance to correct problems quickly and affordably.
