ExOne expects its collaboration with Ipsen to strengthen the level of support offered to customers throughout the entire development and production process. Together the companies will provide a packaged turn-key solution for customers, enabling them to materialise new concepts, designs, prototypes and production parts with virtually unlimited design complexity.

David J Burns, ExOne’s President and COO, stated, “As our pipeline of opportunities is building we have simplified the purchasing process for 3D printers by offering a complete printer-furnace package. Ipsen is ideal for us to collaborate with given their industrial focus and global presence.”

“As technical experts dedicated to lean manufacturing, Ipsen was chosen due to our industry wide reputation for custom innovations and forward thinking research and development focus,” stated Mark Heninger, Ipsen’s Vacuum Product Manager. “We are excited about this collaboration, and the opportunity to pool our knowledge with ExOne to provide a reliable solution for customers.”

ExOne builds 3D printing machines at its facilities in the United States and Germany. ExOne also supplies the associated products, including consumables and replacement parts, and services, including training and technical support, necessary for purchasers of its machines to print products.
