The DMP Factory 500 solution is a scalable manufacturing system designed to help metal manufacturers simplify their workflow to build higher quality seamless metal parts up to 500 mm x 500 mm x 500 mm with lower total cost of operation. (PRNewsfoto/3D Systems)

Last year, 3D Systems & GF Machining Solutions unveiled their DMP Factory 500 solution at several shows including IMTS 2018, and Formnext  2018. Both companies are ready to expand this partnership in the Greater China region.

As a reminder, the solutions developed by both companies result from 3D Systems’ expertise in AM and GFMS’ expertise in precision machining. China-based manufacturers will produce complex metal parts within tight tolerances, and reduce total cost of operation. They will benefit from the companies’ materials, services, hardware and software.

Furthermore, customers in the Greater China region will also benefit from GF Machining Solutions’ Customer Innovation Center (CIC) in Shanghai. 

As part of this process, manufacturers will have the ability to benchmark their parts and products to ensure quality control and validate final parts against specifications – ultimately saving them time, money, and providing faster time to market.

The modular design of the DMP Factory 500 allows manufacturers to create a custom solution for their production workflow to maximize their investment, while the integrated automation minimizes manual processes to reduce total cost of operation. (PRNewsfoto/3D Systems)

The Chinese and Taiwanese markets are known for global manufacturing leadership,” said Herbert Koeck, executive vice president and general manager, global go to market, 3D Systems. “Manufacturers in this region are looking for ways to transform their production workflows in order to maintain their competitive position. Our joint metal 3D printing solutions with GF Machining Solutions fit seamlessly into the traditional shop floor and are unmatched in the industry.”

China and Taiwan are strategic key markets for GF Machining Solutions where we support our customers with an organization of more than 350 direct application, service and sales personal,” said Laurent Castella, head of market region Asia, GF Machining Solutions. “We are delighted to enhance the support to our customers in the transition towards additive manufacturing, with our new Customer Innovation Center (CIC) in Shanghai and by a dedicated group of additive manufacturing experts.”

Since August 1st, manufacturers in China and Taiwan can order 3D Systems’ and GF Machining Solutions’ co-branded scalable metal additive manufacturing solutions (i.e., DMP Factory 500, DMP Factory 350 and DMP Flex 350) exclusively through GF Machining Solutions.
