Make Room for Metal in the 3D Printing World
The fourth industrial revolution may well be back on.
Materialise promises to show how it’s enabling customers to take 3D printing to the next level at formnext powered by tct. The Belgian 3D printing leader will announce new software automation tools and showcase its latest developments in manufacturing and digital supply chains at the Frankfurt event on 14-17th November.
Building on the trend for metal 3D printing, Materialise is set to showcase its commitment to the entire value chain of metal production with the launch of a new, unique metal software which it describes as “the next innovation in metal 3D printing”.
Digital Metal recently entered commercial production of its industrial DM P2500 metal 3D printer. With binder jetting technology, Digital Metal’s technology is capable of creating intricate details equivalent to the point of a ballpoint pen (and smaller). This skill is showcased at formnext by a number of geometrically complex miniatures, including a micro chess set, and a group of employees faithfully recreated in stainless steel.
