CHICAGO, March 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delivering on its strategy to transform 3D manufacturing workflows, 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced the industry’s first modular, scalable and fully-integrated additive manufacturing platform.  3D Systems’ disruptive Figure 4 production platform produces plastic parts more than 50 times faster than current systems, delivering dramatically lower total cost of operations while offering competitive and compelling comparisons to conventional methods.

Based on its revolutionary Figure 4 technology, 3D Systems’ new platform allows customers to tailor configurations and select materials to address specific applications.  Configurations range from single-print engine machines to fully automated, high-volume production systems with 16 or more print engines, automated material delivery and integrated post-processing.

The company recently shipped the first system to a Fortune 50 industrial customer, and plans to ramp customer-specific shipments throughout the second half of 2017.

“We believe our breakthrough Figure 4 platform will revolutionize manufacturing by transforming production of both mass customized and complex end use parts with a compelling total cost of operations versus conventional methods,” said Vyomesh Joshi (VJ), President and CEO, 3D Systems. “While others are realizing the need to transition from prototyping to production, we are delivering real solutions across all key vertical markets and applications that are helping customers solve problems today.”

Illustrative Example – Figure 4 vs. Traditional SLA*
Figure 4 Production Configuration with 16 Print Engines Improvement
Printers Required 225 x Fewer
Annual Throughput Per Printer (prints) 225 x Higher
Facility Floor Space (sq ft) 26 x Lower
Printer Upkeep Labor 45 x Lower
Labor Cost 4 x Lower
Initial Investment 23 x Lower
TCO - 5 Years, Full Fleet 3.5 x Lower
Part (1 million units per year) Improvement
Cost Per Part (in dollars) 71 % Lower
Average Print Time Per Part (in hours) 14.1 x Faster
Material Waste (in grams) 1.5 x Lower
  • Fewer printers with better throughput result in lower investment and higher material utilization.
  • Cost per Figure 4 produced parts approximately 30% of traditional SLA.

As part of its vertical strategy, 3D Systems will unveil one of its initial solutions for the multibillion-dollar dental industry based on the Figure 4 platform and its NextDent materials. Customers will be able to see the solution at the International Dental Show (IDS) 2017, in Cologne, Germany, March 21-25.

Over time, the company intends to extend the Figure 4 platform application by application to meet specific customer needs across healthcare, aerospace, automotive and durable goods industries.
