3D Systems Unveils New Production Solutions; Ushers in Era of True 3D Production at Formnext 2019

Innovative Features Added to Company's Digital Factory Software

With 3D Systems' extensive software portfolio operating as the backbone of each workflow, the company is continually innovating to enrich its products. At Formnext 2019, 3D Systems is announcing its latest software release – 3DXpert 15, the company's all-in-one integrated software for metals additive manufacturing. 3DXpert is renowned as a vital part of 3D Systems' metal solutions, helping to accelerate the transition from design to post-processing. The enhancements available in this new version of 3DXpert include: automatic support generation, extremely fast slicing for high-volume lattice structures, and automated print analysis and validation. These features enable a seamless transition from rapid prototyping to production applications including the ability to optimize design structure, shorten design-to-manufacturing lead time and minimize manufacturing costs.  3DXpert 15 is planned for general availability in January 2020. 

Integrated Additive and Subtractive Production Solutions

Manufacturers that have earned a reputation as industry leaders have already embraced how additive manufacturing can complement their traditional workflows for competitive advantage. In August 2018, 3D Systems and GF Machining Solutions announced a strategic partnership designed to help more manufacturers take advantage of the transformative power of additive. This unique partnership combines 3D Systems' innovation and expertise in additive manufacturing with GF Machining Solutions' renowned leadership in precision machining, enabling manufacturers to seamlessly combine additive and subtractive technologies to more efficiently produce complex metal parts within tight tolerances, and reduce TCO. The companies will have a joint presence in Hall 12.1, Booth D11/D19 where they will showcase these integrated workflows for Healthcare and Aerospace. Their co-branded metal 3D printing solutions – DMP Flex 350 and DMP Factory 500 – will be featured that are designed to enhance metal parts production and redefine manufacturing environments. These solutions enable scalable metal additive manufacturing and are ideal for applications such as: fuel applications, RF applications and airfoil components, spinal cages, mold inserts with conformal cooling for injection molding and die casting.

GF Machining Solutions is also announcing its new high-speed wire cutter - the AgieCharmilles CUT AM 500. The new wire EDM machine combines high-speed operation with the ability to cut even the smallest, most fragile metal parts from the build plate without damaging the parts or causing any contamination or alteration of the material. Being able to redefine this post-processing step is essential to reducing time-to-market and decreasing costs. In addition, GF Machining Solutions will showcase the  Mikron HSM 200U LP high-speed milling machine. Users of this machine will benefit from the combination of direct drives on linear axes as well as rotating and swiveling axes.

3D Systems' Show Activities

3D Systems will hold several events at this year's show.

  • On Tuesday, November 19 at 9:30 am, 3D Systems' President and Chief Executive Officer Vyomesh Joshi will host a press conference in the company's booth D03 in hall 12.1.
  • On Wednesday, November 20, Eric Wind, international senior consultant, Geomagic EMEA, software, 3D Systems will deliver a presentation titled "3D Systems Redefines Metrology for 3D Printed Part Production with Enhancements to Geomagic Control X" at 2:15 pm at the TCT Introducing Stage, Hall 12.1. This session is very timely as the latest release of this software, Geomagic Control X 2020, is now generally available.
