Production 3D Printers: Direct Metal Printing (DMP)

Last Updated on by DesignPoint Team

The Direct Metal process builds up fully dense, chemically pure metals from 3D CAD data by melting fine powder with a laser beam, layer by layer. With layer sizes ranging from 5-30 microns, there are no limitations to part complexity. When complex metal parts are needed fast, 3D Systems’ direct metal solutions turns market pressure into a competitive advantage.

The 3D Systems line of Direct metal production 3D printers support particle sizes as low as 5 microns, resulting in better part accuracy, surface finish and feature detail resolution.

When complex metal parts are needed fast, this series of direct metal solutions turns market pressure into competitive advantage in industries like:

  • Aerospace and defense
  • Engine/component manufacturing
  • Medical technology
  • Patient-specific implants (PSI)
  • Dental application
  • Conformal cooling in tooling inserts
  • Jewelry & objects d’art
