Introducing The Figure 4 Modular

The Figure 4 Modular is among the most groundbreaking technologies to emerge from the 3D printing world in recent years. It is the first of its kind to bring together ultra-high speed printing with the latest in materials science, along with easy scalability.

WHY MODULAR?

As your prototyping and 3D production needs increase, the Figure 4 Modular system allows you to easily scale up to mass-production. A scalable, semi-automated 3D production system, the Figure 4 Modular has the capacity for up to 24 print engines and can print up to 10,000 parts a month, allowing you to rapidly expand your production capacity, from smaller scale batch production all the way up to large-scale factory operation.

The technology had been patented by 3D Systems’ co-founder Chuck Hull back in 1984, but it’s only now, 35 years later, that the technology is advanced enough to realise his concept.

THE BENEFITS OF FIGURE 4 TECHNOLOGY

The Figure 4 Modular system provides an end-to-end digital manufacturing workflow, tackling everything from automated print job management and queuing, through to automated delivery and centralised post-processing, which includes cleaning, drying and curling. Each individual printer module can run different materials, allowing for the printing of multiple parts and resulting in a 15% higher throughput.

The system also offers an incredibly fast turnaround of parts, providing same-day prototyping and direct 3D production. As a result, this technology allows businesses to revolutionise their manufacturing floors, producing high-quality parts within hours, as well as providing them with the agility to rapidly expand their operations.
