RAPID 2018 / On Display System Supports Simultaneous 3D Printing of Multiple Parts Sodick Inc., Booth 1130 Sodick exhibits its OPM250 metal 3D printer, a hybrid system that combines direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) with subtractive machining. This system includes parallel mode technology, which enables simultaneous printing of multiple parts with only a single laser unit for increased productivity. The system also offers interference correction, which detects inter- ference between the recoater and the part, intervening to machine the part back down to a known acceptable level before resuming the print. Interference correction greatly reduces the instances of build failure and scrapped parts, the company says. The system features full high-speed milling capabilities and is capable of accurately machining part details in one setup. Achieving a surface finish of 9 root mean square (RMS) or better, it is said to be effective in the precision tool and die industry with high-quality polish. From quick prototypes to serial production, we got you covered . ExOne ® Binder Jetting
