GPI Prototype & Manufacturing Services, Inc. is pleased to announce an engineering collaboration with 3D Systems, an international leader in industrial 3D printing, to expand and advance their next generation of metal additive manufacturing equipment.
“We are enthusiastic to couple 3D Systems’ expert knowledge in machine technology with our production experience in an effort to grow the use of additive manufacturing across all industries,” said Adam Galloway, President GPI.
GPI has added a ProX300 and two new ProX200 units from 3D Systems in its recently expanded production facility, positioning it well for this new research and development collaboration. The joint effort with 3DSystems will enhance GPI’s leadership role in the advancement of metal additive manufacturing. Engineers from both companies, including GPI’s in-house metallurgical engineer and metals application engineer, will be working together on process testing and machine testing with GPI providing real-time customer feedback. Through this endeavor, GPI and 3DS are seeking to further develop the Direct Metal Laser Melting (DMLM) build parameters to make it more widely adopted by all end users.
“Leveraging the significant experience and engineering expertise of both of our companies to move additive manufacturing to the next level is truly exciting,” says Adam Galloway, President of GPI. “This project is going to be good for our customers and, even more important, a positive for the industry as a whole.”
