CadXpert expands its offer with 3D printers for metal by establishing a strategic partnership with BLT

CadXpert – one of the largest distributors of 3D printers for industry, dentistry and many other industries in Poland, announced the signing of an agreement with BLT Europe GmbH, under which it will provide the Polish market with high-performance solutions for 3D metal printing in an industrial standard. Industrial 3D metal printers from BLT will reach Polish companies in the second quarter of 2024. CadXpert is implementing a long-term development strategy that responds to the growing customer demand for 3D printing of durable metal parts. Apart from Poland, CadXpert’s distribution area will also cover Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Metal 3D printing is one of the fastest growing segments of additive technologies, which has recorded significant growth in recent years. According to the Markets & Markets report, the annual average growth rate of the metal 3D printing market for 2022-2027 is expected to be +32.5%, and the annual turnover may reach USD 5.54 billion in 2027.

The new CadXpert offer is distinguished by three areas. The service will be end-to-end, which means that the customer will be able to follow the path from 3D printing services, through the purchase of a 3D printer, to full service of the devices used directly by CadXpert. Customers will be able to choose from a wide portfolio of over 30 models of metal 3D printers in various specifications and price ranges starting below PLN 100,000. EUR. This involves the ability to precisely adjust the 3D printer to specific needs and requirements.

Collaboration with BLT will enable CadXpert customers to have access to new materials and technologies at competitive operating costs, as BLT is also one of the few metal powder producers in the world.

For the Polish industry, the possibilities related to the production of complex metal geometries and the highest durability are expanding. The offer will also serve as a complement to 3D printing from plastics. Professional 3D printing will reach new market segments, and CadXpert will comprehensively help implement 3D metal printers in manufacturing companies.

CadXpert notices interest in 3D metal printers in industries such as automotive, foundry, dentistry and aviation. Arms and medical companies, as well as manufacturers of parts and components, can also benefit from 3D printing in this technology.
