3D Systems, one of the largest 3D printing companies in the world announced that it has launched new dental metal 3D printers – DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100. According to an official release by the company, the two new 3D printers offer superior quality, versatility and throughput for entry-level metal 3D printing and dental applications.
Equipped with enough power to process a material spectrum that includes different grades of Titanium as well as other alloys, the DMP Flex 100 provides up to twice the throughput compared to 3D Systems’ previous entry-level metal 3D printer, the ProX DMP 100.
The DMP Flex 100 has a build volume of 100 x 100 x 80 mm (3.94 x 3.94 x 3.15 in) is ideal for small, intricate parts as it produces precision metal parts with complex fine details and thin walls – achieving superior accuracy, repeatability and surface finish as fine as Ra 5 μm.
On the other hand, 3D Systems has designed the new DMP Dental 100 metal 3D Printer keeping in mind the unique requirements of the dental labs. The new DMP Dental 100 metal 3D Printer offers maximum price/performance ratio and is ideal for producing high-quality, metal dental prostheses in a business-boosting digital workflow.
The DMP Dental 100 features an outstanding surface quality which minimizes post-processing. It also offers high print accuracy of 50 microns which makes it ideal for crown copings, bridges and suprastructures and partial frames. All these features which result in an accelerated throughput are said to provide dental labs a competitive advantage, especially for quick turnaround jobs. For example, the new DMP Dental 100 can print up to 90 crown copings in less than four hours in a single print run, with only 25 minutes required for heat treatment.
Speaking about the company’s newly launched products, Kevin McAlea, EVP Metals and Healthcare at 3D Systems said, “3D Systems is demonstrating its commitment to bringing industrial-grade metal additive manufacturing to a wider customer base with the launch of the DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100 metal 3D printers.”
“Both solutions feature levels of throughput, print quality, ease of use and material choice that put them in a class by themselves. We believe these 3D printing solutions will further expand the adoption of metal additive manufacturing by designers and engineers, researchers, manufacturers and dental professionals,” concluded McAlea.
