The past couple of weeks have been brimming with exciting announcements from the 3D printing world, largely coming from the formnext 2016 additive manufacturing event in Frankfurt, where new upgrades, new partnerships, and new 3D printers were unveiled on an hourly basis. Even though the event wrapped up last week, we are still processing everything that went on.

Among the many additive manufacturing companies present at formnext, South Korean 3D printer manufacturer Carima was showcasing not only its existing array of product, but also an entirely new model: the DM250 DLP 3D printer. The new machine, which is being heralded as the next generation of Carima’s Master EV, is part of the company’s DM series of 3D printers.

The DM250 3D printer utilizes Digital Light Processing technology, better known as DLP, meaning that it additively manufactures objects from photopolymer resin materials using a projection-based curing system. Slightly different from SLA 3D printing, DLP essentially works by using a digital projector to project light onto a layer of the resin, which solidifies in reaction to the light.

With a build size of 250 x 140.6 x 250 mm, the new DM250 3D printer is one of the larger DLP 3D printers on the market, and is well equipped for printing relatively large objects in a quick and highly precise manner. According Carima, the company has achieved fast results with the DM250 because it is capable of exposing an entire layer of resin at once. The 3D printer also features an intuitive digital touchscreen to help control and monitor printer settings.

The 3D printer’s lamp—used to cure and solidify the resin—has a life span of over 20,000 hours, so you’ll be able to get through many prints without worrying about the printer’s capability and stability. The light source itself is a 405nm UV LED. Other specs include a pixel size (x, y) of 130µm and z control of 25, 50, 75, or 100 µm. The printer itself has dimensions of 650 x 460 x 1,490 mm and an overall weight of 92 kg.

In terms of materials, the DM250 can accommodate a wide range of 3D printing resins, including general purpose resins (such as Acrylic, ABS, Castable, Flexible, and more) and functional materials (like high-temperature, wax, high-resolution, and fast-cure resins). If you do decide to purchase the new DLP 3D printer, Carima will also include one of its resin materials so you can get printing right away.

Carima CEO Byungkeuk Lee expects that the new 3D printer will help increase demand for the company’s DM series, especially considering its ability to print in high resolution and with a smooth surface finish. This last feature would do away with laborious post-processing that is often required for achieving smooth and professional prints.

In addition to the DM250, Carima has also officially re-released its IM series of resin-based 3D printers with variable and customizable build sizes. According to the company, it has already received a number of requests and inquiries from potential clients around the world.
