3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA, will feature its complete end-to-end Additive Manufacturing solutions portfolio at Formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany, November 13-16. Among the solutions on show will be the newest additions to its DMP platform for metal Additive Manufacturing solutions.

These include the new DMP Factory 500, developed in partnership with GF Machining Solutions, which integrates additive and subtractive manufacturing to build metal parts up to 500 x 500 x 500 mm with a lower total cost of operation. At Formnext, 3D Systems will debut its latest high throughput, scalable, DMP metal AM solutions designed for the volume production of critical components for industrial applications such as aerospace, healthcare and transportation.

Further expanding the partnership with GF Machining Solutions, the company will also demonstrate GF Machining Solutions’ new high-speed wire cutter for the DMP Factory 500 – the CUT AM 500. The new wire EDM machine, set for release in 2019, is said to combine high-speed operation with the ability to cut even the smallest, most fragile metal parts from the build plate without damaging the parts or causing any contamination or alteration of the material.

3D Systems will also demonstrate a number of metal AM applications during the exhibition, including conformal cooling, in which metal tool inserts are metal additively manufactured with complex cooling channels to reduces cycle times in injection moulding, thus increasing throughput and helping cool the injected part evenly to reduce part warpage and improve part quality. This is especially useful for injection moulding for automotive, aerospace and medical applications.

Vyomesh Joshi, President and Chief Executive officer, 3D Systems, stated, “The solutions 3D Systems will showcase at Formnext 2018 represent thirty years of customer-centric innovation and industry leadership which are today enabling our customers to create products and business models never before possible. At Formnext 2018, we are not only showcasing the most extensive, integrated portfolio of Additive Manufacturing solutions, we are also demonstrating how our customers are able to transform the manufacturing process, and thus their businesses.”
