The Xerox® ElemX™ 3D Printer: Adding Resiliency to Supply Chains
The Need for Operational Resiliency Today
Adaptability and flexibility are necessary tools in today’s ever-changing markets. The operational resiliency that is achieved through additive manufacturing will empower your business to continue and recover regardless of what’s happening in the world.
Agile Manufacturing Capabilities
Businesses can now produce the parts they need, when needed, where needed, reducing inventory and shipping costs. 3D printing strengthens supply chains by enabling rapid, on-demand manufacturing to proactively react to market volatility and combat supply chain disruptions. Additive manufacturing also drives sustainability to your supply chain through carbon footprint reduction over traditional production methods.
Elem 3D Printing Solutions for Manufacturing
ElemX, Xerox’s proprietary liquid metal printing technology, offers unparalleled ease of implementation and ease of use. Utilising wire instead of powders reduces the costly facility modifications and the cumbersome ongoing management of hazardous and toxic powders. ElemX produces production-grade parts with a fast time-to-part and reduced total cost-of-ownership versus competing technologies.
To deliver the best customer experience, Xerox brings a customer service network held to the highest standards to support manufacturers around the world.
