SUDBURY, MA — Methods 3D, Inc. added the new ProX DMP 320 to its growing line of direct metal 3-D printers from 3D Systems.
Methods 3D is a newly formed subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools, Inc., a supplier of innovative precision machine tools, 3-D printing technology, automation and accessories.
The ProX DMP 320 sets a new standard in metal 3-D printing and is designed for high precision, high throughput direct metal printing and is optimized for critical applications requiring complex, chemically-pure titanium, stainless steel, or nickel super alloy parts. The ProX DMP 320 is designed for production manufacturing, with exchangeable manufacturing modules that support rapid material change or replenishment, allowing manufacturers to keep pace with demanding production cycles and enabling efficient powder recycling.
The ProX DMP 320 offers a large 10.82 inch (275 mm) by 10.82 inch (275 mm) by 16.53 inch (420 mm) build volume and is designed to handle critical industrial applications, including those in aerospace, automotive and medical. The printer comes in two configurations, one optimized for titanium and one optimized for stainless steel and nickel super alloys. With centralized maintenance management, reduced argon gas consumption, and serial manufacturing workflow support, the ProX DMP 320 also offers competitive operating cost advantages.
Methods 3D is installing the ProX within multiple technology centers across the US to provide product demonstration, training, support, and development of customer solutions on this exceptional production printer incorporating the full range of available materials.
“We are excited to offer the ProX™ DMP 320 along with the extensive line of 3D Systems Direct Metal Printers (DMP)," said Benjamin Fisk, general manager, Methods 3D. "Its production manufacturing capability, in addition to high strength, high density, exceptionally pure materials at low operating costs, offers ideal additive manufacturing solutions for today's demanding applications."
In October 2015, Methods Machine Tools announced it entered into a partner agreement with 3D Systems, a provider of the most advanced and comprehensive 3-D digital design and fabrication solutions available today, including 3-D printers, print materials and cloud-sourced custom parts.
Methods 3D, Inc. is comprised of a dedicated team of industry experienced, highly-skilled technical sales and applications engineers fully integrated with, and leveraging, the extensive machining and manufacturing experience of Methods Machine Tools, Inc. This partnership enhances Methods’ portfolio of leading-edge precision machine tools and solutions for traditional manufacturing with advanced 3D printing solutions, enabling their customers to enter new markets, expand their manufacturing capabilities, and revolutionize manufacturing with 3D printing.
