“We are very excited to begin this partnership with GPAINNOVA to offer a full solution from design to finished part using their patented wet and dry electro-polishing” commented Xact Metal CEO, Juan Mario Gomez, “[as] it allows the customer to automate the finishing process, reducing the need for manual labor and saving them time.”

The agreement involves the utilization of GPAINNOVA’s patented dry electropolishing technology, known as the DryLyte Technology, as a post-processing solution for Xact Metal’s cutting-edge metal 3D printers. This collaboration aims to streamline the metal 3D printing process, making it more accessible to organizations of all sizes.

The collaboration between GPAINNOVA America and Xact Metal will provide a complete solution from design to the finished product, incorporating automation in manufacturing and finishing processes. This comprehensive approach aims to ease the introduction and integration of metal 3D printing for organizations.

The relationship between the aforementioned organizations focuses on the digitization of manual labor in dental laboratories, leading to significant time and cost savings. The process is designed to be less hazardous, offering a safer and more efficient alternative. Incorporating DryLyte finishing technology with the metal 3D printing process is expected to bring substantial advantages, including a 60-80 percent reduction in polishing time compared to non-automated methods, faster printing compared to traditional casting, and a notable reduction in manual labor.
