ROCK HILL, S.C. – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced it will be exhibiting at Baselworld 2014, the world's most important watch and jewelry show, from March 27-April 3, 2014 in Basel, Switzerland. In partnership with resellers from around the world, 3D Systems will be showing the 150,000 attendees how digital design and 3D printing can accelerate jewelers' production processes and business models.
3D Systems will be located in Hall 4U, Stand A01, at the Messe Basel, with six of its resellers in attendance to demonstrate a range of 3D-printed jewelry and watchmaking technologies: Almera from Turkey, Prototek/Selitek from Italy, Miradur from China, Steiner from Switzerland, Shree Rapid Technologies from India, and Westcam from Austria. Together these companies will explain and demonstrate how 3D PRINTING 2.0 allows jewelry designers and manufacturers to improve product quality, shorten product time-to-market, and reduce costs.
"Our 3D printing technologies allow very fast but very accurate production of jewelry casting patterns and end-use metal parts direct from digital designs," said Cathy Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer, 3DS. "These technologies are allowing rapid evolution of workflows for jewelry design-to-production processes into the digital 3D printing age."
Visitors to BaselWorld will be able to get an up-close look at the new ProJet 1200 micro-SLA printer, ideal for fast, accurate creation of small but very detailed 3D-printed jewelry casting patterns. In addition, visitors can see the ProJet 3500 3D printer range for creation of RealWax and ProCast casting patterns, micro and specialty investment casting. For larger-scale casting the ProJet 6000 SLA printer will be on hand to show mass-production of the most complex, high-precision casting patterns for industrial uses. 3D Systems' Geomagic Freeform organic sculpting and design tools will be on display for attendees to experience, as well as direct metal sintered parts.
