3D SYSTEMS PREVIEWS PROX METAL 3D PRINTER.

3D Systems has previewed of its latest industrial Direct Metal Printing (DMP) system, the ProX 400, at EuroMold 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany. The ProX 400 gives aerospace and automotive companies, medical implant makers, tool & die makers and service bureaus the power to print high-quality, end-use metal parts faster and more economically than traditional processes allow. For parts up to 500 X 500 X 500 mm3, the ProX 400 produces strong, fully dense metals and exceptional surface finish, and it does so without the complexity of multi-step machining or the time and expense of tooling. The ProX 400 sets the standard for high- capacity metal 3D printing, producing precise parts in a multitude of alloys.

A breakthrough tool for a multitude of metals applications and project requirements, the ProX 400 is capable of printing in more than a dozen alloys, including stainless steel, aluminum, cobalt chrome, titanium and maraging steel. This material selection, along with the enlarged, 500 X 500 X 500 mm3 print volume, means the ProX 400 is ready for whatever you can throw at it. The ProX 400 also ramps up the speed of industrial-grade metal 3D printing with a two-laser system that increases throughput and a modular design that makes it easy to turnaround print jobs in a little as 15 minutes. This fast, high-volume metals manufacturing printer offers simple, automated post- processing and material recycling features for advanced productivity.

Manufacturers can create geometrically complex parts that could never be cast or machined. Medical device makers can print bio-compatible, patient-specific surgical implants in a manner that is scalable and cost efficient. The ProX 400 is changing the metal manufacturing paradigm from A to Z."
