Nov.5, 2014

At EuroMold 2014 starting Nov. 25, 2014, in Frankfurt, Germany, Stratasys are launching 10 high-performance 3D printers and materials for high-end prototypes, production aids and manufactured parts.

6 x new PolyJet based 3D printers

The new PolyJet 3D printers include the compact and office friendly Objet260 Connex 1, 2 and 3 series, as well as the the Objet350 Connex 1, 2 and 3 series with larger build sizes. Same as its Objet500 Connex3 launched earlier this year, the new printers features triple-jetting technology for color multi-material 3D printing.

Stratasys' triple-jetting technology is unique, allowing users to build products with up to three base materials in a single run, forming new Digital Materials such as Digital ABS or producing parts in vibrant colors.

All six 3D printers provide triple-jetting workflow advantages like hot-swap and fewer material changeovers. Further enhancing ease of use and workflow, the Objet260 and Objet350 Connex3 3D Printers will support VRML-exported CAD files in addition to the traditional STL, and deliver color, multi-material 3D printing.

2 x FDM-based Fortus 3D Printer: the Fortus 450mc and Fortus 380mc.

The systems have a new touch-screen interface that allows users to make adjustments to their print jobs without disrupting operations and can achieve up to 20% quicker build times for complex geometries.

Fortus 450mc

The Fortus 450mc has a build envelope of 16 in. x 14 in. x 16 in. (406mm x 355mm x 406mm), and it can produce layer resolutions ranging from 0.005 in. to 0.013 in. (0.127mm to 0.330mm).

The Fortus 450mc has capacity for two model material and two support material canisters. The Fortus 450mc is ideal for mid-sized functional prototypes, production aids and end-use parts in specialized materials.

Fortus 380mc

The Fortus 380mc has the same features as the Fortus 450mc including even temperature distribution in the build chamber and a digital touch screen. On average, the 3D printer can build parts up to 20 percent faster with a build envelope of 14 in. x 12 in. x 12 in. (355mm x 305mm x 305mm) with the same layer resolutions as the Fortus 450mc.

Material capacity for the Fortus 380mc includes two canisters, one for model and one for support material. The Fortus 380mc is ideal for large and midsize manufacturers producing complex, smaller parts such as fixtures and tools.

1 x Objet30 Prime desktop 3D printer that offers 12 material options

Building on the established Objet30 platform, the new Objet30 Prime Desktop 3D Printer offers 12 material options, among them the capability to 3D print rubber-like material (in TangoGray or TangoBlack) and bio-compatible materials such as MED610. This material is ideal for applications requiring prolonged skin contact of more than 30 days and short-term mucosal-membrane contact of up to 24 hours.

The build size of Objet30 Prime is 11.57 in. x 7.55 in. x 5.85 in. (294mm x 192mm x 148.6mm).

Besides the two standard build modes, the Objet30 Prime exclusively introduces a third print option - draft mode, which enables 36-micron layer 3D printing for faster build speeds.

1 x Objet Eden260VS 3D printer with soluble support technology for fine-detailed parts

The new Objet Eden260VS adds the first soluble support removal process for PolyJet technology. Soluble support technology allows users to create delicate, more finely-detailed models with small cavities.

The new Objet Eden260VS permits users entry to mid-sized, high-quality precision prototyping by offering ultrafine 16-micron layers for exceptional detail, complex geometries and very thin walls. The Eden260VS is also compatible with a range of 14 materials, including specialized options for medical applications. The build size is 10 in. x 9.9 in. x 7.9 in. (255mm x 252mm x 200mm). The Objet Eden260VS is a good choice for building parts with fine features, such as dental and medical applications.

Material: ULTEM 1010 resin features superior heat and chemical resistance with bio-compatibility

ULTEM 1010 combines superior heat resistance, tensile strength and chemical resistance and can be sterilized using steam autoclaving for medical applications. It is also bio-compatible and has the only food-contact certification of any FDM thermoplastic. The ULTEM 1010 can be used in aerospace, automotive, food production tooling, and medical device manufacturing and functional prototyping applications.

"The global design and manufacturing market continues to push toward creating smarter products with greater efficiency. Because we believe in, and support this trend, we have announced today a range of solutions that focus on 'democratizing design.' Our customers, whatever their size or industry, can now access a wide spectrum of cutting-edge 3D printing capabilities and deliver competitive advantage," said Gilad Yron, sr. vice president, Product Management, Stratasys. "We invite every designer and manufacturer at this year's EuroMold to visit one of our three booths to see how 3D printing is shaping the way we manufacture."
