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.
