3D Platform Workbench
3D Platform, a leading manufacturer of large format 3D printers, has launched its latest industrial-strength, large-format system, the 3DP Workbench.
The 3DP Workbench comes standard with the large build area of 1m x 1m x 0.5m, and is built on industrial strength mechatronics designed to deliver precision prints down to a 70-micron layer resolution.
At last year’s TCT Show + Personalize, the U.S. machine manufacturer announced it would be making some big changes to its super-sized printing platform by leveraging the benefits of open market capabilities and speeding up print times.
"The 3DP Workbench is more than just another 3D printer, it has been designed through a professional user-experience process-with input from engineers, product developers and top creative talent around the world-incorporating tools they need to take our 3D platform to the next level,” John Good, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with 3DP, commented on the new machine. “The result is a comprehensive toolkit that increases capacity, enables them to expand their capabilities and bring their ideas to life.”
The 3DP Workbench features SurePrint Servo Technology which is capable of halving print time. The SurePrint Servo motors generate 85% greater torque allowing for faster acceleration and deceleration and improving print accuracy and quality.
The ergonomic height and open print bed enable full access to prints for advanced print techniques, such as core modelling and adding inserts of metal, electronics, and other materials.
The machine also features a folding gantry which means it can be moved in and out of regular workspace with ease allowing maximum flexibility and accessibility. Plus it comes with an industrial workbench style setup which includes 12 storage drawers and cabinets for storing AM tools and materials.
The 3DP Workbench will be officially launch towards the end of this year attendees to the 28th annual Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) Education & Training Conference, April 3 - 7, 2016, St. Louis, Missouri, will be able to see a live demo.
