3D Systems Announces 3D Metal Printer

The new 3D printer features a larger build volume and a 500W laser source.

3D Systems has announced a new metal 3D printer, the DMP Flex 200. Its direct metal printing (DMP) is designed for the 3D printed metal manufacturing of small, complex, fine detail metal parts. This is said to make it ideal for dental applications, including next-day removable partial dentures, crowns, bridges, and implant bars.

The Flex 200 features a 500W laser source and a larger build volume of 140 x 140 x 115 mm. It also features a build plate clamping mechanism that eliminates the need for screw management inside the process chamber.

The unit features 3DXpert software for part set-up and production, an all-in-1 integrated production to manufacture 3D CAD models using additive manufacturing. This software is said to streamline processes to quickly and efficiently transition from a 3D model to a successfully printed part.

3D Systems anticipates the DMP Flex 200 will be available in the first quarter of 2022.
