3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) and Georg Fischer AG’s Division (FI/N:SIX Swiss Ex) GF Machining Solutions have announced their first joint solution, the DMP Factory 500 a scalable manufacturing system designed to transform metal manufacturing through simplified workflows to build higher quality seamless metal parts with lower total cost of operation. The DMP Factory 500 is a customizable solution comprised of five function-specific modules: (i) Printer Module (PTM); (ii) Removable Print Module (RPM); (iii) Powder Management Module (PMM); (iv) Transport Module (TRM); (v) Parking Module (PAM).
The modular design of the DMP Factory 500 enables continuous function of all metal 3D printing and powder management modules to maximize uptime, throughput and operational value. In addition, the DMP Factory 500 system includes seamless data connectivity with all major ERP systems to facilitate supply chain optimization. The robust additive manufacturing platform is integrated with GF Machining Solutions’ System 3R referencing and clamping system. This integrated feature reduces set-up times and provides enhanced flexibility by quickly transitioning the build plate from the additive process and sending it downstream for post-processing, saving significant time and money.
