3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA, has launched two new metal Additive Manufacturing systems, the DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100. According to the company, the new machines will offer superior quality, versatility and throughput for both entry-level metal AM and dental applications.

Designed for use in R&D, application development and production, the DMP Flex 100 is reported to provide up to twice the throughput compared to 3D Systems’ previous entry-level metal AM system, the ProX DMP 100. With a build volume of 100 x 100 x 80 mm, the new system is designed for the production of small, precise metal parts with complex details and thin walls. It is said to be able to achieve a high degree of accuracy, repeatability and a surface finish as fine as Ra 5 μm.

According to 3D Systems, the DMP Flex 100 has the capacity to process a number of metals including some titanium grades and other alloys. At the time of its launch, the company’s LaserForm® CoCr (B) and LaserForm 17-4PH (B) materials will be on offer for use with extensively developed, tested and optimised print databases. Additional LaserForm materials for use with the DMP Flex 100 are also in development.

The DMP Dental 100 is reportedly designed to provide maximum price/performance ratio for the manufacture of high-quality metal dental prostheses. According to 3D Systems, the machine can print up to ninety crown copings in less than four hours in a single print run, followed by twenty-five minutes of heat treatment. The high degree of surface quality offered by the system means minimal post-processing is required, with a typical print accuracy of 50 µm helping to ensure the right fit for patient-specific crown copings, bridges, supra-structures and partial frames. The DMP Dental 100 printer comes with LaserForm CoCr (C) material (ISO 13485, ISO 9001, FDA and CE qualified) and includes 3D Systems’ software solution for managing the manufacture of fixed and removable dental prostheses.

Kevin McAlea, EVP Metals and Healthcare, 3D Systems, commented, “3D Systems is demonstrating its commitment to bringing industrial-grade metal Additive Manufacturing to a wider customer base with the launch of the DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100 metal 3D printers. Both solutions feature levels of throughput, print quality, ease of use and material choice that put them in a class by themselves. We believe these 3D printing solutions will further expand the adoption of metal AM by designers and engineers, researchers, manufacturers and dental professionals.”
