Pro-Grade 3D Printer Expands its Reach

Description

Part of an aggressive move to increase market share and drive adoption of additive technologies, 3D Systems has announced a price drop of more than 30% of its production-ready ProX SLS 500 3D printing system.

 

With the price reduction, the ProX SLS 500 has market leading total cost of operations (TCO) for durable, end-use parts compared to competing systems.

 

3D Systems' ProX SLS 500 uses a wide range of DuraForm materials from tough nylon for production parts, to high-temperature resistant fiber-reinforced engineering plastic, to glass-filled engineering plastic for excellent stiffness. DuraForm plastics have been optimized, validated and tested to offer an exceptional combination of surface detail, part strength, and durability for end-use parts.

 

Additionally, the ProX SLS 500 has high materials recyclability. Up to 95% of material used in a build is turned into parts, resulting in minimal waste and lower part cost. Automated material handling and production tools streamline workflows, producing parts up to 7 times faster than comparable FDM systems.
