Italian 3D printer manufacturer WASP has released a new line of industrial 3D printers. Called DeltaWASP 4070 Industrial, the new 3D printer series is an upgrade to the company’s original Delta 4070 3D printer, which originally came out in 2013.

As the company explains, its Delta Family was a breakthrough at its release and it is now recognized as one of the pioneers of delta-style 3D printing.

“When Johann Rocholl presented the Rostock project, no one had ever seen a Delta printer before,” says WASP, noting that the technology drew criticism at first. “The management looked difficult, a thousand calculation problems scared…”

Despite these initial misgivings about the early delta configurations, WASP saw the potential of delta 3D printing and began developing its innovative DeltaWASP system. The technology, it says, showed great possibility for adjustable build volumes, and good quality prints thanks to the robotic configuration of the printer which utilizes precision mechanics to move parts quickly and accurately.

Over the years, the DeltaWASP 4070 has remained a reliable 3D printer, though its hardware has undergone some changes and notable improvements.

Now, with the release of its DeltaWASP 4070 Industrial, WASP is demonstrating the full breadth of the improvements it has made. They include a heated chamber (up to 65°C) with air recirculation system for uniform temperature for technical materials; a metal frame and base (replacing wood and plastic); insulated steel parts (in lieu of polycarbonate); a new system of high temperature resistant arms which allow for higher printing temperatures; and 32 bit electronics (up from 16 bit).

Additionally, the new DeltaWASP 4070 Industrial features WiFi connectivity for remote monitoring and control, as well as a dehumidifying chamber at the machine’s base which keeps filament safe and dry.

The 3D printer also integrates a useful safety sensor which automatically pauses the printing process when the machine is opened or interrupted and resumes the print when the door closes. If the printer stops printing for any other issues, users can use either the Resurrection or Free Zeta systems to get the printer back up and running at the right place.

Other specifications include a build volume of 400 x 700 mm (Ø x h), a minimum layer height of 50 microns, maximum printing and travelling speed of 300 mm/s, and acceleration of 5.000 mm/s2. The printer’s heated print bed can reach temperatures up of to 135 °C. (Note: the aforementioned specs are measured with a single 0.7 mm diameter nozzle.)

In terms of materials, WASP’s new 3D printer series is compatible with a wide range of 1.75 mm filaments, including ABS, PLA, ASA, Flex, HIPS, PETG, TPU, Polypropilene, Nylon, and more.

Finally, the new 3D printer is available in two different versions. The first is equipped with a standard Spitfire Red Extruder and a Spitfire LT Cartridge with a 0.7 mm diameter steel nozzle (WASP specifies that it is also possible to select a Spitfire HT which can reach temperatures of up to 350 °C); the second comes with a ZEN Dual Extruder with two Zen LT Cartridges, each with 0.7 mm nozzles. This enables users to choose between either mono or dual extrusion printing.

Interested parties can request a quote for WASP’s new industrial 3D printer series through the company’s website.
