3D Systems has released anew entry-level metal additive manufacturing metal printing system, the DMP 100.
DMP Flex 100 works using the company’s laser-based Direct Metal Printing (DMP) technology, and are targeted to broaden the potential customer base for industrial-grade additive manufacturing.
Kevin McAlea, EVP metals, 3D Systems, comments:
The DMP Flex 100, as the name suggests, is designed to be application-flexible. As an introductory system, it is best suited to R&D, development, and low-run production.
The Flex 100 can achieve double the throughput of the previous entry-level ProX DMP 100, and is accomplished at creating prints with fine details and thin walls.
Build volume is measured as 100 x 100 x 80 mm (3.94 x 3.94 x 3.15 in), small metal part print accuracy is typically +/- 50 μm (+/- 0.002 inches), for large part it is +/- 0.2%, and repeatability from part to part is approximately 20 μm (0.0008 inches).
