New ABS material for ProJet 3500


In addition to the high performance acrylic materials, you can now run a new high resolution ABS material on the ProJet 3500 range of 3D Printers. The new VisiJet X is the first jetted plastic with the look, feel and performance of injection molded ABS plastic ideal for prototyping, product mock-ups and end-use applications requiring extreme toughness and high temperature resistance. VisiJet X plastic provides new levels of durability and functionality previously unattainable with a jetted plastic. Our new VisiJet X material is a revolutionary breakthrough in jetted plastics, said Buddy Byrum, Vice President of Product Channel Management for 3D Systems. VisiJet X parts have the toughness and durability of ABS for both prototyping and end use applications, and a heat deflection temperature of 88 deg C right out of the printer with no additional tempering needed.  Best of all, VisiJet X parts look great with a stunning white finish that really looks like it came from an injection mold.

AICON acquires majority share in Breuckmann GmbH


Monday 3rd September 2012: Today, it is confirmed that Aicon have taken over a majority shareholding in Breuckmann GmbH. This integration of two leading players in the field of 3D Scanning, 3D Measurement and 3D Inspection offers many synergies. AICON is market leader in the field of photogrammetry and Breuckmann is a world leading manufacturer of high-value optical systems for three-dimensional non-contact measurement, digitization and inspection. AICON and Breuckmann have worked in very close collaboration since 1995. The merging of the two companies upholds the successful companies’ development and offers a clear competitive advantage. Breuckmann’s product range ideally complements the AICON portfolio, so AICON now operates in the market as a full-range supplier of 3D metrology systems. Concurrent Design Group (CDG) represents both Breuckmann and Aicon products in the UK. For further information please contact:- Grant Cameron, CDG, Concurrent Design Group, Tel. 01420 88645,
