Equipments Details


The ProX DMP 300 is an additive manufacturing technology designed by 3D Systems Company to manufacture a large range of metal parts. From large-sized objects to the production of small features shaped with challenging geometries, the 3D CAD data are manufactured by the use of a laser directed onto a bed of atomized metal powder, within a tightly controlled chamber filled with inert nitrogen. The ProX DMP 300 allows for details as fine as 20 microns on the Z-axis and 100 microns on the X- and Y-axes. Due to the large build volume (275 x 275 x 380 mm), the ProX 300 is suitable for prototyping tools marketed toward such industries and research areas related to medical, dental, aerospace and automotive fields.
