3D Systems ProJet 5000
3D Systems has launched the largest in its line up of ProJet 3D Printers, the ProJet 5000 large format. The Projet 5000 reportedly offers twice the speed of former systems with the highest print resolution 'in its class'. The new system has what the company calls its 'most advanced print-head technology'. The print heads come with a 5-year manufacturer's warranty, which should help to keep the total cost of ownership at a lower level.
Built for factory performance, the ProJet 5000 is reportedly compact, quiet and easy to use. 3D Systems believe that companies of any size can enjoy the benefits of on-demand, in-house production of high-quality, extremely detailed prototypes and functional parts up to 21 inches, or 550 millimetres, in length.
“With the ProJet 5000, our customers can economically print larger, single piece, high-definition parts in-house,” said Buddy Byrum, Vice President Product & Channel Management for 3D Systems. “With faster print speed and higher resolution, the new ProJet 5000 delivers even more value for automotive, aerospace, footwear, appliances and packaging design and manufacturing applications.”
The ProJet 5000 prints durable, high-definition VisiJet MX plastic parts that stand up to the most challenging exposure environments and provide best-in-class functional performance for product development, testing, rapid tooling and casting applications.
With up to eight material delivery modules, the ProJet 5000 can be configured for flexible materials management and delivers the longest unattended, continuous operation available today, exceeding 80 hours.
Part stacking and nesting capabilities combined with its oversized print volume provides unmatched productivity, giving users the flexibility to produce both larger parts and more parts in a single build than any other professional 3D printer on the market.
