About Xact Metal

Matt Woods laid the foundation for Xact Metal when he recognized the need for additive manufacturing to offer higher performance in a sustainable way. More than just spotting a market gap – Matt saw a problem and built a machine to solve it, the genesis of the XM line of printers.

With a desire to enable manufacturers to experience the benefits of high-quality 3D metal printing at the best price possible, Xact Metal will change the perception that additive manufacturing is only for capital-rich companies.

Xact Metal has received funding from Ben Franklin Technology Partners and operates out of Penn State University’s Innovation Park, home to some of the leading tech companies in Pennsylvania. Xact Metal is located in State College, which has been voted in the top 10 best small towns to live and in the top 10 for start-up businesses in the United States.
