3D Systems launches two 350 metal printers at Formnext

3D Systems, the originator of 3D printing, announced the DMP Flex 350 and DMP Factory 350, the company’s latest additions to its proven DMP metal 3D printing platform, designed for volume production of critical components for industrial applications such as aerospace, healthcare, and transportation. In addition, the company introduced a new aluminum alloy material – LaserForm® AISiMg0.6(A), designed to produce strong, lightweight, parts without the need for casting.

Building on the success of its proven scalable metal additive manufacturing solutions, including the recent announcement of the DMP Factory 500 developed in partnership with GF Machining Solutions, the new DMP Flex 350 and DMP Factory 350 provide a strategic migration path that enables customers to grow their business by transforming the way they design and manufacture parts. The DMP Flex 350 and DMP Factory 350 are engineered for robust, repeatable 24/7 metal part production for R&D, application development and production. 3D Systems’ DMP platform design enables customers to scale from the DMP Flex 350 to the DMP Factory 350 as their production needs evolve within their factory environment.

The DMP Flex 350, the successor to 3D Systems’ ProX® DMP 320 metal 3D printer, enables more efficient production of very dense, pure metal parts and includes improved gas flow technology for improved uniform part quality across the entire build area. Additionally, the DMP Flex 350’s improved print productivity of 15% over previous model facilitates faster time to market with lower total cost of operation.
