Israel is one of the world's 3D technology hotspots with a number of high-profile companies either based in or hailing from the country. Many of them — including XJet, the modern-day Stratasys and Massivit 3D — have ties back Objet Geometries and that company's ink jetting prowess. Now Massivit, based in Lod, Israel, will unveil its Gel Dispensing Printing system at historically 2D printing mega-show, DRUPA.
Full details below:
Massivit 3D Printing Technologies today announced that it will use drupa 2016 to provide the first public demonstration of the new Massivit 1800 printer. With a stand boasting vibrant, eye-catching 3D printed sign & display applications, drupa visitors can discover how they can utilise new 3D printing technology to produce unique and attention-grabbing large format 3D displays for a wide variety of markets.
A super-fast large format 3D printer, the Massivit 1800 is set to transform the way high-level marketing, advertising & themed projects are created. With output speeds incomparable to anything else in the 3D printing industry, the Massivit 1800 printer can produce high quality 3D pieces up to 1.8m / 6ft high. Print providers seeking to dramatically extend their product portfolio beyond 2D pieces, now have access to a profitable new and unique application capability, and an important business differentiator to enhance their competitive edge and secure their future.
Avner Israeli, CEO, Massivit 3D comments, “Following three years of hard work and incredible progress, we are very excited to demonstrate our system at drupa. In general, 3D print has the flexibility, speed and price point to unlock huge new creative opportunities and drive profitable growth for users, and that is no different for the printing industry.
“For print providers, the Massivit 1800 dramatically enhances the ability to create eye-catching added-value visual communications that better engage target audiences. With recent studies suggesting that 3D advertising has five times the stopping power and four times the staying power of 2D advertising, it is clear why this is the technology for sign and display applications. The Massivit 1800 is THE 3D printing solution for print providers, developed by people who have dedicated their careers to delivering market leading large format digital printing equipment.” he adds.
Adding a New Dimension
Adding ‘the next dimension’ to visual communications, the Massivit 1800 is challenging and reshaping the way in which creative directors, product designers and marketers think about 3D models, displays and brand promotion.
Bigger. Lighter. Faster
Stripping out the previous barriers to 3D print for these applications – including print speed, size and weight – pioneering print service providers are already seizing the opportunity to add new high margin 3D powered revenue streams to their business.
Designed to be intuitive and allow for easy operation, not only is the Massivit 1800 very user friendly, but with Massivit’s customer support programme, introducing 3D technology is a smooth, painless and quick transition.
The Massivit 1800 system is the fastest large format 3D printer available on the market. At the heart of the solution is the company’s proprietary GDP (Gel Dispensing Printing) technology that enables instant solidification and high-speed printing. The Massivit 1800 printer also utilises techniques that allow it to print non-vertical walls and ceilings, without the need to produce a solid object or intensive support structure. So in printing less to achieve the same result, the Massivit 1800 is able to dramatically increase print speed,
while also reducing material costs and product weight – crucial for additional materials handling, transportation and storage benefits.
- Speed: up to 1,000mm / 39 inch per sec in x & y-axis
- Productivity: up to 35cm / 1ft of object growth per hour (z-axis)
- Printing dimensions: 1.5m x 1.2m x 1.8m; 4ft x 5ft x 6ft
- Dual process - Easy printing of 2 different objects in parallel
- Low material consumption due to ‘support-less’ printing
- Low energy consumption LED UV curing lamps
With successful customers in the market, a comprehensive worldwide distributor network for delivery of high quality and responsive service and consumables supply, Massivit 3D goes to drupa 2016 ready to take orders.
Avner Israeli concludes: “We expect drupa visitor reaction to be very positive. Our products enable marketing/brand managers to maximise the impact of their campaigns with a never-before-seen 'wow factor'. This will be the key to many print service providers being able to expand their business with existing and new customers. We’re ready to help fuel the next large format growth market.”
