As part of its strategy to improve production involving additive manufacturing, 3D Systems unveils an additive metal production platform designed to allow manufacturers to easily scale their additive manufacturing and integrate seamlessly into the factory floor.
Based on Direct Metal Printing (DMP) technology
The DMP 8500 Factory Solution is the first truly scalable, automated and fully integrated metal additive manufacturing solution. It features an efficient and fully integrated workflow – from powder in to part out – to produce repeatable, high-quality parts with a lower total cost of operation (TCO).
With the largest diameter build size in the industry able to produce metal parts up to 500 mm x 500 mm x 500 mm, the system is engineered to open up new applications in additive manufacturing for companies in Aerospace, Industrial and Automotive industries.
“The industry is at a point where companies are looking to scale up their metal 3D printing production, bridge the chasm, and move onto the factory floor,“ said Vyomesh Joshi, president and chief executive officer, 3D Systems. “The DMP 8500 Factory Solution was developed by experts with deep knowledge and experience in factory solutions and takes metal printing technology to a new level of economic efficiency for our customers.“
The DMP 8500 Factory Solution will integrate 3D Systems’ innovative 3DXpert™ software. This all-in-one software efficiently prepares and optimizes parts for streamlined direct metal production of functional parts.
