It has significant experience in partnering with foundries to provide sound technical advice, intensive support, flexibility and rapid response to serve the needs of its customers.
David Burns, President and Chief Operating Officer of ExOne, commented: "The UK market is important for both metal castings and for generalised 3D printing in industrial applications. John Burn is a very distinctive company, in that it has historically supported the casting market and has years of experience in 3D printing. ExOne believes in true partnerships with customers, and John Burn embodies that philosophy as well. We look forward to great success together in the UK market."
Brian Lang, Managing Director of John Burn, added: "We look forward to a long association with ExOne. ExOne's competencies are a strong complement to the capabilities of John Burn and we believe that ultimately it is our customers who will benefit from our collaboration. The foundry industry in the UK is hungry for new approaches and we at John Burn believe that the time is now for 3D printing in the foundry world."
Ranked as the sixth-largest global economy, the UK presents significant and varied opportunities for the application of 3D printing technology. With more than 350 foundries in the region, ExOne believes this market provides meaningful sales potential for its indirect materialisation process.
