3D Systems to unveil polypropylene sintering material at DMS Expo

3D Systems Corp. has announced that it will run a newly developed polypropylene-based material on its Sinterstation Pro SLS System at the Design Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions Expo (DMS) from June 25-27, 2008, in Tokyo, Japan.

3D Systems is developing this new selective laser sintering (SLS) plastic DuraForm XR300 jointly with TRIAL Corp. of Kanagawa, Japan.

This material is translucent, white in color, flexible, and has good chemical resistance and elevated impact strength. It is designed for a wide-range of applications, such as automotive interiors, requiring parts that are soft and flexible, yet durable.

While not yet commercially available, DMS attendees will have the first opportunity to preview DuraForm XR300 material.

"3D Systems is pleased to unveil to the Japanese marketplace a newly developed polypropylene-based material designed exclusively for our advanced selective laser sintering rapid manufacturing systems," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' president and CEO. "Japan continues to be an important leading-edge marketplace for 3D Systems, and it is appropriate that this advancement was made possible through collaboration with a Japanese research company."

3D Systems will exhibit its new, high-definition ProJet HD 3000 3-D Production System using multi-jet modeling technology and its direct-metal producing Sinterstation Pro DM250 SLM System. It will also exhibit its large-frame Pro systems, the Viper Pro SLA and Sinterstation Pro SLS Systems. All of these systems use CAD data to build three-dimensional parts in hours using advanced Additive Manufacturing technology.
