Environment

ExOne uses Binder jetting technology, which fabricates metal, ceramic and composite objects out of powdered particles with little waste. 

Binder jetting offers a substantial improvement over traditional manufacturing, which generates enormous volumes of debris that are often toxic and must be cleaned and recycled, or put into landfills.

ExOne’s most popular binder, furan, is made from renewable sources, such as corn husks, rice hulls, sugar cane, and other biomaterials.

Social 

ExOne has a slightly below average Glassdoor rating of 3.1 out of 5.0 from 15 current and previous employees compared to a 3.3 average for all other Glassdoor rated companies.
