3D Systems Announces Next-Generation Design-to-Manufacturing Solutions

The company is showcasing new 3D printers, materials and software at EuroMold 2014.

3D Systems (3DS) is showcasing several next-generation printers, new material options and additions to its design-to-manufacturing thread at EuroMold 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany. The latest technology builds on the company’s current direct metal printing (DMP), stereolithography (SLA) and selective laser sintering (SLS) capabilities.

The printers to be showcased include the ProX 400, ProX 800, ProX 500 Plus and the ProJet 1200. The company is also planning to debut a new suite of 3D software and scanning solutions that provide users with extended capabilities and simple-to-use tools.

For 3D printing systems, the ProX 400 features the largest build size of any metal 3D printer and offers automated finishing. The ProX 800 features greater production efficiency, a new print head and material management systems. New materials are to be released for the ProX 500, which include glass- and aluminum-filled filaments.

3DS is also releasing five new materials for its ProJet 1200 3D printer that expands applications for dental labs, jewelers, manufacturers, engineers and 3D artists. These materials include FTX Cast, FTX Gold, FTX Silver, FTX Gray and FTX Clear. The company adds that it will also be launching new materials for the ProJet 500X that are functional-grade and flexible.

In addition to new 3D printing systems and materials, 3DS is showcasing its Capture Mini scanning system and a cloud and desktop-based application for managing the design-to-manufacturing digital thread.

“We are thrilled to unveil a new suite of products that will support the most demanding manufacturing applications, especially in activities such as aerospace, automotive, personalized healthcare and the production of high performance, end-use parts,” said Avi Reichental, president and chief executive officer, 3DS. “Our 3D PRINTING 2.0 solutions unlock significantly faster product development cycles, seamless content-to-print digital workflows and truly unprecedented part performance, as we continue to lead the field of advanced manufacturing, from the engineer’s desktop to the factory floor.”
