Shining 3D Tech. Co., Ltd., headquartered in Hangzhou, China, released its new EP-M150 system at Rapid + TCT 2019, Detroit, Michigan, USA, May 20–23. The company stated that the EP-M150 was developed to provide support to the growing market for small metal AM applications, and that its size makes it suitable for a range of industries such as medical, dental, and jewellery.
According to Shining 3D, the EP-M150 is capable of Additive Manufacturing 500 dental crowns using only 1 kg of powder, while maintaining low gas usage and a high material consumption rate. The design of the system was reportedly made to be as convenient and simple to maintain as possible.
The company explains that, thanks to its proprietary operating software, once set up the EP-M150 can additively manufacture using a ‘one key print’ function. Additionally, the entire process can be analysed using the system’s internal smart network.
