Propel Your Research Center with 3D Systems’ Metal 3D Printing Solutions

  • Achieve Premier Part Accuracy, Surface Finish, and Quality

    When you’re researching applications for metal additive manufacturing, whether you’re working to improve air movement, fluid flow or thermal management, you’ll appreciate DMP Flex 200 and DMP Flex 350 printers’ ability to produce high density metal parts with superb surface finish, accuracy and repeatability. Furthermore, for quality and process control with DMP Flex 350, visualization and monitoring tools provide the data and analysis you need for advanced development.

  • Experiment with an Open, Customizable System

    Research is expanding across the 3D printing landscape, from product design to production, post-processing and beyond. Software is a critical component and should help your team maximize design freedom, experimentation and customization with both the printer and materials. 3DXpert® software from 3D Systems allows for unprecedented control over the entire design-to-manufacturing workflow, enabling streamlined production of high-quality, optimized parts, while boosting innovation.

  • Explore More Metals

    If your additive manufacturing research involves working with strong, dense metals such as gold, tungsten and platinum or super alloys made with nickel or cobalt, you’ll need a system that can handle an extensive variety of materials. 3D Systems has developed print parameters for a wide range of metals, such as aluminum, titanium, stainless steel, nickel, cobalt-chrome, copper, maraging steel alloys (availability depending on the DMP printer model). To experiment small quantities of exotic and/or expensive materials, the build volume reducers are ideal.

    With the DMP Flex 200, you are able to process spherical and non-spherical powders covering a wide range of particle sizes. Our patented and unique roller/recoater system was designed with this in mind, allowing you to achieve perfect layers from almost any powder specification and morphology. As to the DMP Flex 350, its vacuum chamber concept results in low oxygen content, enabling exceptionally strong parts of high chemical purity in materials such as titanium, tungsten or copper.
