ROCK HILL, S.C., Sept. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (Nasdaq:TDSC) announced today that it plans to exhibit examples of its growing direct manufacturing capabilities as part of the Emerging Technologies Center (EMT) at IMTS 2010 (International Manufacturing Technology Show) at the McCormick Convention Center in Chicago, IL, September 13 – 18th.

The Emerging Technology Center, presented by the Association for Manufacturing Technologies (AMT) in partnership with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), showcases the most innovative technological developments for the manufacturing industry in 3-D. The ETC's theme for 2010, "Knowledge-Based," covering manufacturing, people, business and technology, is reinforced through the participation of 3D Systems as the inventor of Stereolithography, the very first additive fabrication technology, over two decades ago.  3D Systems continues to lead and shape the direction of rapid manufacturing with 5 distinct technologies, an impressive patent portfolio and complete design to manufacturing solutions and services.

 "Our growing suite of direct manufacturing solutions and services come with the assurance of consistent quality, reduced costs and improved time to market; all critical to the success of small to large manufacturers," said Cathy Lewis, 3D Systems vice president of global marketing.  "From 3D Printers and Production Systems to our 3Dproparts™ service, we offer the broadest array of additive and traditional technologies and high performance materials to completely transform manufacturers' workflow, costs and lead-times away from labor intensive traditional methods and into the digital age."
