3D Systems today unveiled the details of its ProX 400 metal 3D printer, which will be showcased at EuroMold 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany.

The ProX 400 is capable of printing in more than a dozen alloys, including stainless steel, aluminum, cobalt chrome, titanium and maraging steel. Its patented layering system is capable of printing very fine powders and lower-cost, non-spherical powders. Large parts (up to 500 x 500 x 500 mm or 19.69 x 19.69 x 19.69 in), or large volumes of smaller parts can be manufactured quickly and economically, with no down time between builds. The printed parts are fully dense and have exceptional detail and surface finish.

The ProX 400 is part of a modular production system that includes automated part cleaning and material recycling for efficient high-volume manufacturing. It also ramps up the speed of industrial-grade metal 3D printing with a two-laser system that increases throughput and a modular design that makes it easy to turnaround print jobs in a little as 15 minutes. This fast, high-volume metals manufacturing printer offers simple, automated post-processing and material recycling features for advanced productivity.

"Our direct metal 3D printers are known throughout the industry for precision and mechanical properties that rival precision machined parts from billet," said Avi Reichental, President and CEO, 3DS. "With the ProX 400 we've added best-in-class productivity to go along with the accuracy, surface finish and metal quality of our other direct metal printers."
