3D Systems launched the DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100 3D printers for entry-level metal 3D printing and dental applications.
For R&D, application development and production, the DMP Flex 100 provides up to twice the throughput compared to 3D Systems’ previous entry-level metal 3D printer, the ProX DMP 100. It produces precision metal parts with complex fine details and thin walls – achieving accuracy, repeatability and surface finish as fine as Ra 5 μm. Its build volume of 100 x 100 x 80 mm (3.94 x 3.94 x 3.15 in.) suits small, intricate parts.
The DMP Flex 100 is equipped with enough power to process a material spectrum that includes different grades of Titanium as well as other alloys. At launch, 3D Systems is offering LaserForm CoCr (B) and LaserForm 17-4PH (B) with extensively developed, tested and optimized print databases. Additional LaserForm materials for use with the DMP Flex 100 are in development.
3DXpert, 3D Systems’ all-in-one software solution for Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM), is included with the DMP Flex 100 to ensure a streamlined and repeatable process for high quality optimized prints.
For dental labs, the DMP Dental 100 metal 3D printer produces metal dental prostheses in a digital workflow. For example, the DMP Dental 100 can print up to 90 crown copings in less than four hours in a single print run, with only 25 minutes required for heat treatment*. The resulting surface quality means minimal post-processing is required and a typical print accuracy of 50-microns ensures an exceptional fit for crown copings, bridges, suprastructures as well as for partial frames.
To streamline the digital dentistry workflow, the DMP Dental 100 printer comes with LaserForm CoCr (C) material (ISO 13485, ISO 9001, FDA and CE qualified) and includes a high-performance 3D Systems software solution for managing the manufacture of fixed and removable dental prostheses.
Both the DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100 metal 3D printers are available immediately.
