3D printing firm ExOne and manufacturing giant Siemens have announced a partnership that sees the latter’s software implemented in the former’s hardware.

In line with ExOne’s reputation for sand and metal 3D printing, the company’s newly launched S-Max Pro sand printer integrates with Siemens’ Digital Enterprise Portfolio of software.

“With this expanded partnership, ExOne will deliver even more value to our foundry and manufacturing customers who rely on our industrial 3D printers,” said ExOne CEO John Hartner. “We are proud to be the first industrial 3D printer to fully integrate the latest of Siemens control, sensing and motion technologies and this new MindSphere technology, which will give our customers a new level of control and plant integration.”

Siemens brings new digital technologies and its profound industrial domain knowhow to help ExOne generate further value. The new ExOne S-Max Pro™ 3D printer proves that seamlessly integrated software and automation solutions result in shorter time to market, higher performance and maximum availability.”
