New Dual-Laser Machines Enable Rapid 24/7 Production

January 24, 2022

3D-Systems-Part-DMP-350-Factory-Dual-BracketAt Formnext…3D Systems showcased additions to its Direct Metal Printing (DMP) portfolio with the DMP Flex 350 Dual and DMP Factory 350 Dual—two-laser machines designed to halve build time and lower part-production costs.

These latest additions reportedly maintain the benefits of DMP single-laser configurations, including flexible application use and quick-swap build modules (DMP Flex 350 Dual); integrated powder recycling (DMP Factory 350 Dual); and a central server to manage print jobs, materials, settings and maintenance to enable 24/7 productivity. Additionally, 3D Systems’ unique vacuum chamber significantly reduces argon-gas consumption while delivering oxygen purity of less than 30 ppm. Applications for the DMP Flex 350 Dual and DMP Factory 350 Dual include medical devices, aerospace, turbomachinery, semiconductors, automotive and motorsports. Expect general availability of these machines during this year’s first quarter.
