Italian 3D printing company WASP will debut three new 3D printers and two new extruders at this week’s MECSPE manufacturing exhibition in Parma, Italy. The new 3D printers include the DeltaWASP 2040 Turbo2, DeltaWASP 4070 Industrial, and DeltaWASP 3MT Industrial.

As one of Europe’s most important manufacturing expos, MECSPE covers much more than just 3D printing. If you’ve got a keen eye for additive, however, you’re sure to find a great deal of bellissimo 3D printers and 3D printing equipment at this year’s fair, which is being held in the Italian city of Parma.

WASP, the Italian 3D printing company behind the monstrous BigDelta 3D printer and a number of smaller machines like the DeltaWASP 3MT, will be in attendance, and although its staff won’t be lugging the BigDelta there, they certainly haven’t packed light. Visitors to the WASP stall will get a chance to see no less than five new 3D printing products, including three new 3D printers.

Those new 3D printers are the DeltaWASP 2040 Turbo2, the DeltaWASP 4070 Industrial, and the DeltaWASP 3MT Industrial. The first, the DeltaWASP 2040 Turbo2, is described by WASP as “a revised and improved version” of the standard DeltaWASP 2040 Turbo, equipped with a new integrated 32-bit board that has been optimized for industrial tasks.

According to the 3D printer manufacturer, the Turbo2 can support two high-power extruders, and introduces both a motor cooling system and a new carriage sliding system that is faster and more accurate than that of its predecessor. The 3D printer also has a more insulated printing enclosure, which results in a more even distribution of temperature and more accurate prints. Sounds good, but what of these other “Industrial” 3D printers?

Where the Turbo2 is a tweaked update of an existing machine, the other two 3D printers are part of a completely new line of machines, still based on existing WASP 3D printers but with completely new applications in mind.

The DeltaWASP 4070 Industrial, the first of these two 3D printers, is a full-metal machine designed for industrial use. The 3D printer uses a heated enclosure with an advanced ventilation system, preventing both heat and noise from escaping. According to WASP—and presumably because of its capacity for high temperatures—it can be used to print “technical” materials.

DeltaWASP 3MT Industrial 3D printer

The DeltaWASP 3MT Industrial, on the other hand, is an industrial reworking of the aforementioned DeltaWASP 3MT, fitted with an acoustically and thermally insulated chamber like the 4070 Industrial. A pellet extruder can be fitted to the 3D printer to print large objects through nozzles of up to 3 mm in diameter. (0.4, 0.7, and 1.2 mm will also work.)

In addition to the three new 3D printers, WASP is also introducing two extruders, contrastingly titled Spitfire and Zen. The Spitfire is able to up to extrude up to 30 meters of filament per hour, while the Zen is a double extruder that can be used for multimaterial 3D printing. The Zen is equipped with a cleaning system and a mechanism for adjusting nozzle height, which is controlled directly by machine movement.

Those not able to attend MECSPE 2017 may have to wait a little while before getting their hands on WASP’s new 3D printing products, since none are currently available through the company’s online store.
