3D Systems is well known for the reliability and repeatability of our laser sintering process. Our ProX™ metal range of equipment is the result of 10 years of research and development for Direct Metal Sintering (DMS) or metal 3D printing.
With the ProX 300 3D printer, additive manufacturing becomes an industrial option for the production of metal parts. It is a high-performance, high quality alternative to traditional manufacturing processes, offering reduced waste, greater speeds for production, short set up times, very dense parts, and the ability to produce very complex assemblies as a single parts.
The ProX 300 is the largest in our Direct Metal Sintering range, offering a build volume of 9.8 x 9.8 x 11.8 in (250 x 250 x 300mm). It features an automated material loading and recycling system, and supports materials including Maraging 1.2709, Stainless 17-4PH, Ti6Al4V, AlSi12.
Industries where the ProX metal 3D printers are already used include: custom dental prostheses, orthopedic implants, tire molds, watch manufacturing, aerospace parts and more. In addition, these systems are wisely used for direct creation of conformal tooling, tooling insert and blow mold production.
All ProX metal 3D printers deliver accuracy compatible with EN ISO 2768 (fine) machining tolerances and a repeatability of about 20 microns in all three axes. ProX direct metal sintering printers create chemically pure, fully dense metal and ceramic parts from very fine powders with the granularity of 6 to 9 microns. Materials include stainless steel, tool steel, super alloys, non-ferrous alloys, precious metals and alumina. The outstanding output quality, with high accuracy, finish, reliability and repeatability, and a choice of more than 15 materials, makes these industry-leading machines highly attractive to manufacturers.
