3D Systems Demonstrations at ITMS 2014
During the IMTS 2014 event, 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) will be demonstrating its 3D design-to-manufacturing products that are created from the ground up for use in the factory floor and the engineer’s desktop. 3DS IMTS lineup includes demonstrations of its latest 3D printers, 3D engineering and design software, as well as samples from materials capabilities including direct metal, full-color plastic, multi-material and production grade Selective Laser Sintering and Stereolithography. ITMS 2014 attendees can see demonstrations of:
Industrial-grade direct metal printing — 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) is demonstrating its advanced industrial-grade metal printing, featuring the ProX(TM) 200 Direct Metal Printer (DMP). The ProX series of direct metal printers is designed for the most demanding manufacturing conditions, and will produce high-density 3D-printed parts in a wide range of metals including steel, various titanium alloys and aluminum.
Simultaneous, multi-materials composite printing — 3DS will also be demonstrating the ProJet(R) 5500X. This remarkable device simultaneously prints and fuses together flexible and rigid material composites in a variety of colors such as opaque, clear, black, white and various shades of gray.
High speed, high capacity printing for durable plastic parts– IMTS attendees can also see 3DS’ ProJet 3500 HDMax in action, together with the matching VisiJet(R) line of plastic materials. The ProJet 3500 HDMax’s can produce high definition, performance-grade functional plastic parts in a remarkably short time, and is setting a new standard for developing prototypes, models, testing, as well as creating molds and end-use parts.
3D printing for the Engineer’s Desktop — Visitors can also see 3DS’ new CubePro(TM) series of 3D printers, featuring the largest print volume in its class as well as multi-material capability. Offering three models for single, double or triple print heads accommodating up to three colors, this less than $5,000 desktop 3D printer series will give you high-fidelity, true-to-design results.
Integrated scan-to-design and inspection tools and print drivers — 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) is also demonstrating its end-to-end digital thread, which allows users access to a design environment where they can reverse engineer objects, recreate or improve upon existing objects and reproduce objects on demand. This demo features the Geomagic(R) Capture(TM) 3D scanner, the first fully integrated scan-based design and inspection solution, together with a suite of Geomagic software solutions
