ProX™ 200 Dental

The ProX 200 series offer laboratories the most suitable system for larger volume print runs with the ease of intuitive 3D printing software.

About ProX DMP 3D Printers

All 3D Systems’ Direct Metal Printing (DMP) printers create chemically pure, fully dense metal and ceramic parts, and they deliver accuracy compatible with EN ISO 2768 (fine) machining tolerances and a repeatability of about 20 microns in all three axes. Materials include stainless steel, tool steel, super alloys, non-ferrous alloys, precious metals and alumina. The outstanding output quality, with high accuracy, finish, reliability and repeatability, and a choice of more than 15 materials, makes these industry-leading machines highly attractive to manufacturers.

The ProX line of DMP 3D printers are providing seamless and intuitive metal 3D printing in a variety of industries: custom dental prostheses, orthopedic implants, tire molds, watch manufacturing, aerospace parts and more. In addition, these systems are wisely used for direct creation of conformal tooling, tooling insert and blow mold production.

Product Description

The ProX™ 200 Dental brings the power of laser sintering to the production of metal dental parts using Cobalt Chromium. This high-performance, high-quality alternative to traditional manufacturing processes offers reduced waste, greater speeds for production, short set-up times, very dense parts, and the ability to produce complex assemblies as a single parts.

The ProX 200 Dental system is a large dental printer, offering a build volume of 140mm x 140mm x 100mm height. It features a semi-automated material loading and optional external recycling system, and supports certified Ni-free CoCr material for dental printing.

Produce Ni-free CoCr dental prostheses faster
Boost production times
Top accuracy and surface finish
Reduce material waste
Able to produce parts not normally manufacturable using traditional methods
Produce very dense, non-porous parts
Consistently high accuracy parts even on first-time builds

Michal Hermanek, founder and owner of MicroDent, the largest dental lab and dental CAD/CAM services supplier in the Czech and Slovakia regions, believes that 3D Systems’ metal 3D printers allowed his company to grow faster than he could ever have anticipated.

Five years ago, Hermanek founded his dental businesses based on joining two worlds: traditional dentistry and digital solutions. As a tech-savvy graduate and member of a family of dentists, he immediately saw the potential between the developing dental CAD software solutions and scanning. Soon after, the idea of 3D printing became a target for him and his teams. As the company grew, Hermaneck started researching direct metalsintering (DMS) systems.

Having created a small 3D dental bridge model, Hermanek sent the file to several 3Dprinting vendors to create a test part and then assessed the results.Of the 3D printer models he assessed, one stood out. “The sheer qualityof the part created on the ProX™ 100 dental system from 3D Systems (formerly the Phenix PXM) meant that the part didn’t twist and deform, and also stood up to repeated firing,” stated Hermanek. “The accuracy and the price of the system was also a huge factor in choosing the ProX 100.”
