3D Systems is releasing the DMP 8500 Factory Solution, a scalable, automated and fully integrated metal additive manufacturing system based on the company’s Direct Metal Printing (DMP) technology. According to the company, it offers an efficient and fully integrated workflow from powder-in to part-out, producing repeatable, high-quality parts.

Able to produce metal parts ranging to 500 × 500 × 500 mm, the system is designed to be open to new applications in additive manufacturing for companies in the aerospace, industrial and automotive industries.

 The system is comprised of function-specific modules designed to maximize efficiency by optimizing utilization of each module. Theses modules include Removable Print Modules (RPMs) that seal modules for transport, Printer Modules designed to enable maximum printer uptime in a 24/7 production cycle, Powder Management Modules (PMMs) that efficiently de-powder parts on build platforms, and Transport Modules that enable efficient movement of the RPMs between printer and powder modules to reduce production time.

The system will integrate 3DXpert software, an all-in-one software that efficiently prepares and optimizes parts for streamlined direct-metal production of functional parts.
