“The addition of our DMP technology in WeAreAM’s Center of Excellence marks a significant milestone in their journey toward achieving manufacturing optimisation,” stated Matteo Marcellini, Director, Industrial Solutions, 3D Systems. “Our DMP Flex 350 Dual is renowned as a high throughput, high repeatability metal 3D printer that is capable of producing high-quality parts in a broad range of alloys. The addition of this printer will not only help WeAreAM address its customers’ evolving application needs and catalyse innovation, it will also help improve productivity. Additionally, our newest partner, Gruppo Grazioli, brings deep expertise in solutions integration to help manufacturers optimise their investments. I’m looking forward to all we will be able to achieve through this collaboration.”
The DMP Flex 350 Dual enables flexible application use and quick-swap build modules, and a central server to manage build jobs, materials, settings, and maintenance for 24/7 productivity. Additionally, the unique vacuum chamber significantly reduces argon gas consumption while delivering high oxygen purity (<25 ppm). The AM machine also includes Oqton’s 3DXpert software, which supports every step of the Additive Manufacturing workflow from design to post-processing, to efficiently transition from a 3D model to manufactured parts. 3DXpert can reportedly enable up to 75% faster file-processing time, and increase productivity by up to 40%.
Paolo Folgarait, PhD, founder, president & CEO, WeAreAM, commented, “We are excited about our collaboration with 3D Systems and Gruppo Grazioli, aimed at showcasing how metal 3D printing technologies can be utilised to create functional objects. The rapid serial production of parts on the 3D Systems DMP Flex 350 Dual meets all critical safety requirements across various application sectors, and empowers manufacturers to design innovative products.”
Carlo Grazioli, board member, Gruppo Grazioli added, “We are thrilled about our collaboration with 3D Systems, a significant step that solidifies our position in the metal additive technology sector in Italy. The partnership enables us to further provide advanced solutions and comprehensive support, thus contributing to driving innovation in the Italian industrial landscape. We are committed to delivering added value to businesses through the integration of cutting-edge technologies, fostering growth and excellence in the industry.”
3D Systems will showcase its DMP Flex 350 Dual at the WeAreAM Center of Excellence open house on January 30-31, 2024.
