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.
For enhanced ease-of-use for demanding production environments, the DMP Flex 350 can be field upgraded to the DMP Factory 350. The DMP Factory 350 combines the same features and advantages of the DMP Flex 350 with integrated powder management. An in-unit viewing panel enables visual inspection of the ultrasonic sieve to ensure incident-free operation. The DMP Factory 350 includes real-time process monitoring via 3D Systems’ DMP Monitoring and allows customers to analyze and optimize parameters for higher quality final parts. Both the DMP Flex 350 and DMP Factory 350 are integrated with 3D Systems’ 3DXpert™ 14, the only all-in-one integrated software solution for the entire metal additive manufacturing workflow.
The DMP Flex 350 and DMP Factory 350 have a targeted availability of late Q4 2018. The starting price for a DMP Flex 350 is $575,000 (US) and $763,000 USD for a DMP Factory 350.
