ROCK HILL, South Carolina – June 28, 2010 - 3D Systems (NASDAQ: TDSC) announced today the immediate availability of single piece large parts through its 3Dproparts™ network. The company confirmed that it has expanded its SLA production capacity to fifty-five systems that now include twelve state-of-the-art Pro™ SLA Systems across the 3Dproparts network, along with a wide range of high performance materials to meet its customers demanding requirements.
As part of this expansion phase, the company installed two iPro 9000XL™ SLA Production Centers capable of producing up to 60 inch extra-large, single-piece parts and QuickCast™ patterns. Regardless of part size and complexity, these Extra Large iPro SLA Systems deliver unmatched surface finish, fine feature detail and dimensional accuracy for all large part applications.
3D Systems launched its 3Dproparts service last October, and moved quickly to expand its capabilities and geographical coverage through a number of strategic acquisitions and significant new systems capacity.
“Our expanded capabilities and capacity are consistent with our commitment to democratize access to our latest technology and deliver complete design to manufacturing solutions to an ever broader audience,” said Cathy Lewis, vice president global marketing, 3D Systems.
