Watch a video to see how the ProX DMP 320 can accelerate production cycle times and improve the quality and performance of metal parts.
The ProX DMP 320 sets a new standard for productivity in metal 3D printing. With exchangeable manufacturing modules, the ProX DMP 320 supports rapid material change or replenishment, allowing manufacturers to keep pace with demanding production cycles and enabling efficient powder recycling. The printer also features preset build parameters developed from the outcome of nearly half-a-million builds, providing predictable and repeatable print quality for virtually any geometry.
The ProX DMP 320 offers a large 275mm x 275mm x 420mm build volume. Designed to enable critical industrial applications, including those in aerospace, automotive and healthcare, the ProX DMP 320 comes in two configurations, one optimized for titanium and one optimized for stainless steel and nickel super alloy. With centralized maintenance management, reduced argon gas consumption and serial manufacturing workflow support, the ProX DMP 320 also offers competitive operating cost advantages.
“With the ProX DMP 320, we’ve leveraged our collective expertise in metal additive manufacturing to pair best-in-class productivity and repeatability with exceptional outcomes in key industrial materials,” said Mark Wright, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, 3D Systems. “We’ve been working closely with leading customers through extensive beta testing of this machine and the feedback we have received distinguishes this printer as one primed to transform expectations for timelines, process and results.”
“As beta system partners, we have been relying on the ProX DMP 320 to make titanium parts and are impressed by the high throughput, ease of use, consistency of output, and overall part quality,” said Bob Markley, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at 3rd Dimension, an industry leading Direct Metal Printing provider in North America. “Combined with our ProX 200 and ProX 300, we are able to provide our customers with the optimal part, in the optimal metal, to meet the demands of each and every application—no matter how specialized."
