Metal Technologies in Additive Manufacturing

  • About our Metal Printers

    3D Systems invented 3D printing. We produce hundreds of thousands of metal parts with our metal printers, metal materials and specialized software.

Benefits of Printing With Metal

  • Lightweighting

    Reduce weight, improve stiffness-to-weight ratio through topological optimization, hollowing, applying internal lattice structures and/or consolidating assemblies to reduce fasteners. 

  • Part Consolidation

    Manage your part count and eliminate critical assembly processes such as welding that require extensive quality control and inspection. Reduce assembly time and cost by eliminating the need of sub-assembly labor and jigs and fixtures

  • Fluid Flow

    Rethink design and enable fluid and airflow design to achieve best cooling, heating, mixing or other fluid flow in a part. Make the best of use of CFD by producing geometries that are truly optimized for fluid dynamics and not achievable with conventional production technologies. 

  • Functional Improvement

    Design outside the subtractive tool box and increase the functionality of your component or product by making use of the design freedom Metal AM offers.

  • Customer Innovation Centers

    Unlock the full potential of your Metals investment with our global network of immersive Customer Innovation Centers. Tap into over 30 years of industry expertise spanning additive and subtractive processes. Whether you are new to metals manufacturing or have years of experience and want to get to the next level, we can help.

  • Our Software Delivers Results

    Software is the key to transforming data from 3D scans, illuminating designs, and inspecting part quality, and is used every day to enable manufacturing for traditional and 3D-based manufacturing processes. Explore our end-to-end software portfolio today.

“The closed-vacuum-chamber design not only maximizes powder re-use, but also prevents argon-gas bubbles from permeating the part. When parts produced using this technology undergo hot isostatic pressing, quality is comparable to forged parts. Such results are a must for aerospace parts that periodically need to withstand high amounts of pressure.”
— Ronen Sharon, Sharon Tuvia on DMP Technology in DMP Flex 350 printer
