2 of 2
Solidscape, a Stratasys company, has unveiled the Solidscape MAX2 high-precision 3D printer for manufacturing wax patterns.
The MAX2 is the newest member of the company’s popular 3Z Series and features SCP (smooth curvature printing), delivering higher throughput with very significant production gains for precision designs in jewellery, medical and industrial applications.
For the jewellery industry in particular, the MAX2 is expected to "revolutionise current workflows by delivering complete design to finished, casted jewellery in a much shorter time".
Solidscape’s fastest 3D printer ever, the MAX2 is priced at $55,650 (£32,981, €40,784) and is aimed at the high-precision investment casting market.
With one-touch simplicity, the fully automated MAX2 printer combines the power of high-precision printing with the increased performance required for manufacturing applications. Its user-friendly touch screen and software deliver the benefits of 3D manufacturing to any business by allowing operators of any skill level to produce their own high-precision wax patterns ready for casting.
President and General Manager Fabio Esposito explained: "The Solidscape MAX2 is part of our relentless drive to help our manufacturing customers optimize their workflow and quality.
"The surface finish quality of the wax patterns made by the MAX2 is the best ever produced by any Solidscape printer. And that precision is now matched by substantially increased performance that can cut the production time for jewelers in half. The Solidscape MAX2 gives our customers a product choice that meets their needs for high precision, high performance and a high return on their investment."
Solidscape also announced higher trade-in allowances towards the purchase of a new MAX2 for “experienced” Solidscape 3D printers, competitive 3D printers or milling machines. These incentives will be managed by local resellers.
