STRATASYS unveiled 11 new 3D printer models and new materials

STRATASYS released 11 new 3D printer models and new materials, which were exhibited at the mold industry exhibition "EUROMOLD" (November 25-28, 2014) held in Frankfurt, Germany

in terms of "polyjet" products with UV curable resin sprayed from the inkjet nozzle, 9 models "objet260 connex1/2/3", "objet350 connex1/2/3", "objet Eden 260vs", "objet Eden 260s" and "objet30 prime" have been added. In terms of new products with FDM (melt deposition molding), two models "fortus 380mc" and "fortus 450mc" have been added

objet260 connex1/2/3 and objet350 connex1/2/3, like the existing objet500 connex series, are equipped with "triple injection technology" that can use up to three materials at the same time (see the report on this website). As far as the modeling dimension is concerned, objet260 connex series is 255mm long by quickly turning the pointer back to the left extreme position of the dial by hand × Width 252mm × 200mm high, 342mm long for objet350 connex series × 342mm wide × 200mm high. This time, small models objet260 connex3 and objet350 connex3 with smaller body size than objet500 connex series are added, so that small volume shapes can also be multicolored

support water-soluble support materials

these are mostly difficult or impossible with existing injection molding technology. Objet Eden 260vs and objet Eden 260s are medium-sized models with water-soluble support parts. The supporting material can make the "fullcure707" soluble in water at the same time. As long as it is immersed in water, the supporting part can be easily removed. Among them, objet Eden 260s, which is specially designed for the Japanese market, is limited to fullcure707 as the supporting material according to the requirements of Japanese users. Reduce prices by locking in available materials

objet30 prime is a new desktop product. In terms of materials, in addition to 12 kinds of materials such as rubber like resins and biocompatible materials, it is also equipped with a new "draft mode" that can obtain shapes in a short time. In this mode, the lamination thickness is large, reaching 0.036mm, so the surface becomes rough, but compared with the original "high-speed mode" (the lamination thickness is 0.028mm), the modeling speed is accelerated by about 25%, which can be used in the upstream stage of product development, repeated trial production and other occasions. In addition, objet30 prime is a high-resolution model for the Japanese market only, which can achieve a minimum build-up thickness of 0.014mm (the minimum build-up thickness of previous models was 0.016mm). It can meet the high-quality requirements of Japanese users

fortus 450mc and fortus 380mc are characterized by an increase in modeling speed of about 20% over previous models, and are also equipped with a touch screen. In terms of the maximum shape size, fortus 450mc is 406mm long × 355mm wide × 406mm high, 355mm long for fortus 380mc × 305mm wide × 305mm high. In addition, fortus 450mc can also use the new FDM heat curing plastic, which can be used for the modeling of medium-sized functional prototypes, production aids and final product components using special materials

new material that can also be used in food processing tools

new material "ultem1010" is a material for the most high-end model of fortus series "fortu Jinan assaying material wear testing machine, which can be used to test the wear resistance of metallic and non-metallic materials (nylon, plastic, etc.) under sliding friction, rotating friction, rolling sliding compound friction and other conditions, as well as under wet friction, dry friction, abrasive wear and other working conditions", Excellent heat resistance and chemical corrosion resistance, steam sterilization, and tensile strength up to 81mpa. In addition, this material also has biocompatibility. As a material for FDM 3D printers, it has obtained the certification of food contact materials in the United States, so it can be used to make food processing tools and medical device components
