Two Powerful New Materials for the Omni 3D

09.01.2019

Introducing THERMEC™ ZED and XSTRAND™ GF30-PP. These two exciting new materials are the perfect companion for the Omni 3D, our flagship FFF 3D printer with a 0.5m³ build volume.

THERMEC™ ZED combines PEEK-like properties with easier printing and post-processing, while XSTRAND™ GF30-PP is over two times stronger and stiffer than standard ABS and PA6 filaments.

THERMEC™ ZED 

from Italian filament specialist Filoalfa

THERMEC™ ZED is a thermoplastic filament, purpose-built for high-end applications that require a high level of chemical resistance as well as exceptional mechanical properties.

It is an excellent alternative to PEEK, but a lot easier to print and post-process.

Features:

— Chemically inert, unaffected by know solvents up to 200°C
— Flame retardant and self-extinguishing
— Highly elastic and resilient
— Excellent layer adhesion, for minimal warping

XSTRAND™ GF30-PP

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polyamide 6, from US composites specialist Owens Corning

The XSTRAND™ line aims to take additive manufacturing performance to the next level. Its GF30-PP glass fiber filament is no different, boasting strength and resilience well-above many popular materials for FFF printing, including carbon-fiber filled ABS, neat PP and standard PA6.

It is up to 250% stronger and stiffer when compared against competitive ABS and PA6 filaments, making it ideal for functional prototyping and industrial applications.

Features:

— Very stiff and strong
— Excellent layer adhesion, for a greatly reduced warping effect
— Large operational temperature, ranging from -20°C to 120°C
— Good chemical and UV resistance

Forget tooling with 3D Systems' Figure-4

02.01.2019

Introducing 3D Systems’ Figure-4, an ultra-fast SLA 3D printer which combines the speed and scalability of a factory machinery with the versatility of 3D printing. Thanks to developments in robotics, CAD/CAM software, 3D printing materials, and SLA technology, it is now possible to mass-produce parts without tooling, and Figure-4 is the industry’s first tool-free digital moulding solution.

Figure-4 Production: in 1984, Chuck Hull came up with an innovative solution for the rapid production of SLA parts. Now, more than 30 years later, those ideas have finally been realised.

Features

Rapid

Figure 4 Production features up to 15 times faster print speeds than other 3D printing technologies, automated material handling, and integrated post-processing, making its throughput and time-to-part the fastest of any additive manufacturing technology in the world.

Cost-Effective

Up to 20% lower part cost compared to traditionally manufactured parts and operations, with no time or money lost to tooling. Thanks to a high-degree of automation, it is possible to achieve high productivity with minimal hands-on processes.

Versatile

Figure-4 can print in over 30 materials, for a broad range of requirements. These include strong, rigid materials for production applications; castable materials optimized for jewelry patterns; and elastomeric materials ideal for iteration and design verification of rubber-like parts.

Easy to Scale

For those who want immediate scale, the Figure-4 Production is a fantastic solution. For others who want to scale more gradually, the Figure-4 Modular is perfect, allowing users to continually add print cells as and when the need arises.
