Methods 3D Inc. (Sudbury, MA) introduces the 3D Systems' ProX SLS 500 Selective Laser Sintering production 3D printer featuring fast speeds, high print resolution and a range of engineered composite materials. According to the company, the printer delivers parts with high precision, durability and quality, all in a compact production-grade system. Created for the manufacturing floor, the ProX SLS 500 printer is designed to produce exceptionally smooth surfaces and high-resolution thermoplastic parts, claims Methods 3D. Ready-to-use functional parts and complete assemblies are suitable for automotive applications, among others. The ProX SLS 500 was developed in tandem with the DuraForm ProX materials line to produce smoother wall surfaces, high print resolution and edge definition, generating injection molding-like part quality. The ProX SLS 500 uses three DuraForm ProX materials—the DuraForm ProX PA, DuraForm ProX GF, and DuraForm ProX HST Composite. For more information, visit www.Methods3d.com.
