ProX™ 200

The ProX 200 system offers a build volume of 140mm x 140mm x 100mm height. It features semi-automated material loading and an optional external recycling system, and supports materials, including Maraging 1.2709, Stainless 17-4PH, Ti6Al4V, AlSi12 as well as ceramics.

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

Medium-sized build volume in a powerful metal 3D printing package

The latest addition to the ProX™ range, the ProX 200 integrates a powerful laser adapted to an intermediary production volume for the streamlined manufacturing of precise, medium-sized metal parts. The ProX 200 is a high-performance, high-quality alternative to traditional manufacturing processes, offering reduced waste, greater speeds for production, short set up times, very dense metal parts, and the ability to produce very complex assemblies as a single part. In addition, the ProX 200 gets you to your part faster with seamless, intuitive 3D printing software.

The ProX 200 system offers a build volume of 140mm x 140mm x 100mm height. It features semi-automated material loading and an optional external recycling system, and supports materials, including Maraging 1.2709, Stainless 17-4PH, Ti6Al4V, AlSi12 as well as ceramics.

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.”
