MCP Tooling Technologies SLM Moibus rings.
3D Systems Corporation (Rockhill, SC), a provider of 3D modeling, rapid prototyping, and manufacturing solutions entered into a private label arrangement with MCP Tooling Technologies to make available the Sinterstation Pro DM100 and DM250 SLM systems, direct metal manufacturing systems that build fully dense parts for end products, prototyping, and tooling.
The DM100 and DM250 systems build metal parts using selective laser melting (SLM) technology, where a laser fuses metal powder into a solid 3D part in an additive, layer-by-layer process. Using CAD data, these direct metal manufacturing systems produce accurate, detailed parts with smooth surface quality within hours without significant additional tooling. The DM100 and DM250 direct metal systems are suited for a broad range of medical, dental, aerospace, automotive, electronics, and military applications as well as for tooling and conformal cooling applications that require accurate, fully dense metal parts made from a wide selection of metals.
The Sinterstation SLM systems directly build parts in aluminum, titanium, stainless steel, tool steels, cobalt chrome, and inconel, a family of austenitic nickel-based superalloys. The smaller build volume of the DM100 is well suited for digital dentistry applications, while the larger build volume of the DM250 provides general-purpose flexibility and high throughput.
3D Systems provides 3D modeling, rapid prototyping, and manufacturing solutions for design communication, prototyping, and production of functional end-use parts. MCP Tooling Technologies, based in Europe, has more than 50 years experience in designing and supplying process technologies, equipment, and proprietary materials foremost to the medical, consumer product, aerospace, and automotive industries.
