3D Systems and GF Machining Solutions unveil the DMP Factory 500 at IMTS 2018
At IMTS 2018, 3D systems and GF Machining Solutions unveiled the result of their partnership.
The two powerhouses combined their expertise in different areas of the manufacturing industry, additive manufacturing and precision machining, to come up with a revolutionary concept in factory automation that includes software for enhanced part design, 3D printers, materials and automated material handling, electrical discharge machining (EDM), milling equipment and advanced post-processing technologies.
The first fruit of this strategic partnership is the DMP Factory 500. The DMP Factory 500 is a metal 3D printer that uses laser technology to create seamless high-quality metal parts with no weak points. We visited GF Machining Solutions’s booth in the metal cutting hall at IMTS to take a look at the new machine and talk with its creators. Here’s what we learned from Stefan Dahl, head of technology unit advanced manufacturing at GF Machining Solutions, and Kevin McAlea, EVP of Healthcare and Metal Business At 3D Systems.
