3D Systems showcase engineering-grade additive manufacturing

3D Systems will be showcasing its engineering-grade additive manufacturing systems for all budgets and production requirements at MACH 2018, Stand H7-345, April 9-13, NEC, Birmingham. Covering a full range of prototyping and manufacturing applications, the 3D Systems stand will feature end-to-end systems for plastics and metal fabrication.

3D Systems showcase engineering-grade additive manufacturing

A world exclusive will be the premiere of the ProX SLS 6100 Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) production 3D printer. Designed for the manufacturing floor, the ProX SLS 6100 produces ready-to-use functional parts and complete assemblies for a variety of aerospace, automotive, patient specific medical devices, fashion accessories, and mobile device use cases. With a range of production-grade nylon materials from which to choose, it brings versatility to applications from functional prototyping to direct 3D production.

A high-performance metal additive manufacturing system, the ProX DMP 320 features a build volume of 275 × 275 × 420mm. Considered as the heavy-duty alternative to traditional metal manufacturing processes, this Direct Metal Printing (DMP) system produces very dense and pure metal parts with reduced waste, shorter set-up times and higher throughput.

Also on show is the next-generation, high-speed Stereolithography (SLA) system manufacturing parts in hybrid materials that offer toughness, durability, biocompatibility, high temperature deflection, and elastomeric properties.

Visitors to the stand will also see the FabPro 1000, an affordable Digital Light Processing (DLP) 3D printer that delivers parts with smooth SLA surface quality. The FabPro 1000 raises the bar for professional desktop 3D printing, producing high-quality parts quickly and easily for a variety of engineering and jewellery applications.

Throughout the event, 3D Systems will display its design and engineering software, including 3DXpert for metal additive manufacturing and GibbsCAM for CNC manufacturing.

Nicole Clement, VP Marketing, Europe, 3D Systems says: "MACH is one of the industry's premier events for demonstrating the latest advances in manufacturing innovation. We are pleased to be bringing what we feel is the industry's most complete portfolio of additive manufacturing solutions to produce everything from concept models to test fit, form and function - to time-saving master pattern and tooling moulds for applications such as investment casting - to final end use production parts in durable metal and plastic materials. The breadth of our solutions is matched by their depth with 3D Systems offering a full slate of software products for subtractive and additive manufacturing applications, as well as a complete selection of plastic and metal materials."
