Amnovis chooses the double direct metal laser from 3D Systems

  • Company using 3D Systems DMP Flex 350 Dual to produce high reliability titanium parts for medical devices and industrial applications
  • DMP Flex 350 Dual enabling productivity gains of at least 50% and reduced costs compared to a single laser solution

ROCK HILL, SC, Oct. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, 3D systems (NYSE: DDD) announced that Amnovis, an additive manufacturing production and engineering company based in Aarschot, Belgium, has integrated 3D Systems’ DMP Flex 350 Dual into its contract manufacturing workflow. This next-generation technology includes two lasers, allowing Amnovis to produce high-quality, extremely reliable end-use parts for a variety of industrial and medical device applications. Through the use of the DMP Flex 350 Dual solution, Amnovis realizes increased productivity – at least 50% more compared to the DMP Flex 350 single laser – and reduced costs.

The founders of Amnovis were among the first to use laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) technology to additively manufacture titanium medical devices such as orthopedic and spinal implants. Integrating the DMP Flex 350 Dual printer into its workflow allows Amnovis to expand its potential for innovation in inventory and patient-specific medical devices. This unique innovation ecosystem also enables Amnovis to introduce product and process improvements that can also be used for highly regulated industrial applications including aerospace and high tech.

The DMP Flex 350 Dual is the newest addition to 3D Systems’ direct-to-metal (DMP) printing portfolio. This dual-laser configuration retains the benefits of the single-laser configuration, including flexible use of applications and quick-swap build modules, as well as a central server to manage print jobs, materials, settings, and maintenance for 24/7 productivity. Additionally, the company’s unique vacuum chamber significantly reduces argon gas consumption while delivering best-in-class oxygen purity (

“For us, innovation benefits from improvements in materials and processes, as well as the ability to increase productivity,” said Ruben Wauthle, CEO and co-founder of Amnovis. “We took a huge leap forward in 3D printing efficiency by integrating 3D Systems’ DMP Flex 350 Dual into our workflow. By tailoring our premium parts manufacturing for quality-critical applications in the medical, high-tech and other industries, we ensure faster delivery at lower cost, while maintaining our high quality standards. »

“For our service desk customers to gain a competitive advantage, they must differentiate the services they provide while becoming increasingly responsive to customer requirements,” said Scott Anderson, vice president, segment head, 3D Systems. “Our collaboration with Amnovis is another example of how we can apply our application development expertise and a wide range of integrated additive manufacturing solutions to help maximize productivity, reliability, uptime and throughput. By integrating the DMP Flex 350 Dual into its solution portfolio, Amnovis provides high quality parts to its customers while achieving exceptional total cost of ownership.
