3D Systems, headquartered in Rock HIll, South Carolina, USA, has announced the launch of the ProX™ DMP 320, the latest addition to the company’s line of direct metal Additive Manufacturing systems. The ProX DMP 320 is designed for high precision, high throughput direct metal printing and optimised for critical applications requiring complex, chemically-pure titanium, stainless steel or nickel super alloy parts.
With exchangeable manufacturing modules, the ProX DMP 320 system supports rapid material change or replenishment, allowing manufacturers to keep pace with demanding production cycles and enabling efficient powder recycling. The system also features preset build parameters, providing predictable and repeatable print quality for virtually any geometry.
The ProX DMP 320 offers a 275mm x 275mm x 420mm build volume and comes in two configurations, one optimised for titanium and one optimised for stainless steel and nickel super alloy. With centralised maintenance management, reduced argon gas consumption and serial manufacturing workflow support, the ProX DMP 320 also offers competitive operating cost advantages, states 3D Systems.
“With the ProX DMP 320, we’ve leveraged our collective expertise in metal Additive Manufacturing to pair best-in-class productivity and repeatability with exceptional outcomes in key industrial materials,” stated Mark Wright, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, 3D Systems. “We’ve been working closely with leading customers through extensive beta testing of this machine and the feedback we have received distinguishes this printer as one primed to transform expectations for timelines, process and results.”
“As beta system partners, we have been relying on the ProX DMP 320 to make titanium parts and are impressed by the high throughput, ease of use, consistency of output, and overall part quality,” stated Bob Markley, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at 3rd Dimension, an industry leading Direct Metal Printing provider in North America. “Combined with our ProX 200 and ProX 300, we are able to provide our customers with the optimal part, in the optimal metal, to meet the demands of each and every application – no matter how specialised.”
