Xerox Elem Partners with Rochester Institute of Technology in Metallurgical AM

Today, Xerox® Elem™ Additive Solutions announced that the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) recently purchased and installed a Xerox® ElemX™3D printer at its AMPrint Center in Henrietta, NY. RIT will use the printer in its collaborations with manufacturers for product research and development as they focus on next-generation metal 3D printing technologies.
RIT is a long-time Xerox collaborator in the field of additive manufacturing (AM) and an early adopter of liquid metal AM. The AMPrint Center faculty has years of experience in metal additive manufacturing with a primary focus on aerospace applications. The installation is the result of a successful collaboration between industry and academia and both parties will continue to work together to adapt the ElemX to new commercial and industrial applications. For more information, see the IDTechEx report Metal Additive Manufacturing 2022-2032: Technology and Market Outlook.

“RIT has already been a great partner in helping to advance our liquid metal AM technology and we believe the installation of the ElemX at the AM print center will be important to further refine our solution,” said Tali Rosman, Managing Director of Elem Additive. “Partnering with advanced research facilities such as RIT that collaborate with manufacturers will be key to increasing industry adoption of our technology.”

ElemX is a safer and easier metal 3D printing technology that tackles supply chain resilience for transportation, aerospace, defense and industrial manufacturing. Until now, the ability to 3D print aluminum consistently and reliably has challenged the market. Unlike other metal 3D printing technologies, there are no dangerous metal powders with ElemX and no need for PPE or other extensive safety measures. Designed to simplify the supply chain process, ElemX is the ideal option for spare parts, repairs and low volume production parts.

Denis Cormier, professor of industrial and systems engineering and director of the AMPrint center at RIT, is an expert in additive manufacturing technologies. Cormier is dedicated to leading the development of innovative 3D printing technologies that will impact manufacturing.

“Liquid metal additive manufacturing is a technology poised to tackle the on-demand production of aluminum spare parts to minimize inventory costs,” Cormier said. “Collaborating with industry partners like Elem Additive is an important part of our work here at the AMPrint Center to maximize the capabilities of AM technology. We believe ElemX has the greatest potential for industrial growth and scalability.”

The facility at RIT’s AM Print Center builds on previous ElemX facilities at Naval Postgraduate School and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, two other advanced research facilities that focus on increasing adoption metal AM in manufacturing.
