Jointly designed by GF Machining Solutions and 3D Systems, the DMP Factory 500 is a workflow-optimized metal additive manufacturing (AM) printing solution that is said to create seamless large parts with increased quality and lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for aerospace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers.

The DMP Factory 500 is said to ensure scalability, high throughput and low TCO for parts ranging to 1,649.606" × 1,649.606" × 1,649.606" in size.

The printer’s modular concept is said to optimize utilization to maximize efficiency. Bi-directional material deposition enables faster recoating and greater productivity over time, translating to lower operational costs.

The vacuum chamber is said to attain a pure atmosphere during printing for optimal part quality (no oxidation of titanium parts), high powder recyclability, low argon consumption and a fast setup time.

DMP Monitoring enables informed decisions about product quality with nondestructive quality control through real-time process monitoring.

3DXpert integrated software handles AM workflow, supporting every step from design to postprocessing. The package streamlines the process for a quick, efficient transition from 3D model to successfully printed parts.

The DMP Factory 500 offers control of part quality, cost, workflows and scalability. In doing so, the system paves the way for aerospace manufacturers to build higher-quality parts, reduce TCO, simplify process workflows, and scale in a factory environment, the company says.
