Objet260 Connex series brings multi-material, triple-jetting technology with unrivalled product realism.
Stratasys has announced it will launch a staggering total of 11 high-performance 3D printers and materials at EuroMold 2014.
The reveal includes a brand new 3D printing line up that will enable customers to deliver high-end prototypes and manufactured parts with greater ease, speed and efficiency.
With the successful release of the Objet500 Connex3 triple-jetting technology earlier this year, Stratasys has announced six new PolyJet based 3D printers. Using triple-jetting technology, designers and workgroups can produce prototypes, tools, injection moulds and end-use parts in vivid colour and realism with reduced costs.
The Objet260 Connex 1, 2 and 3 series is a compact and office friendly platform, while the Objet350 Connex 1, 2 and 3 series deliver the same capabilities with larger build sizes. Together, all six will provide triple-jetting workflow advantages like hot-swap and fewer material changeovers.
Advantages in this new range of products include: Unique triple-jetting technology now available cross-platform - providing companies with varying application and budget requirements access to a large variety of material combinations. Companies will also benefit from up to 20% faster FDM production system times when producing complex prototypes.
In a first for FDM thermoplastic, Stratasys will provide the ability to create 3D tools for food processing and perform steam sterilisation of medical devices. ULTEM® 1010 FDM is a combination of heat resistance, tensile strength and chemical resistance.
Customers working at desktop level will now have access to 12 3D printing materials with the compact Objet30 Prime providing with more freedom to test design concepts to advanced working prototypes and parts. The system exclusively introduces a third print option - draft mode, enabling 36-micron layer 3D printing for faster build speeds to quickly test concepts.
For service bureaus, the Objet Eden260VS 3D printer creates delicately detailed models with complex geometries and very thin walls. the Combining ultra-fine 16-micron resolution with soluble support technology the machine offers faster and more productive hands free operation.
Stratasys is also launching two new Fortus 3D Production Systems, the Fortus 450mc and Fortus 380mc with up to 20% quicker build times for complex geometries. The Fortus 380mc is designed for high-performance prototyping and production tooling in a variety of standard and engineering thermoplastics while the Fortus 450mc employs the most advanced FDM thermoplastics and is ideal for mid-sized functional prototypes and end-use parts in specialised materials.
Our customers, whatever their size or industry, can now access a wide spectrum of cutting-edge 3D printing capabilities and deliver competitive advantage," said Gilad Yron, Snr. Vice President, Product Management, Stratasys. "We invite every designer and manufacturer at this year's EuroMold to visit one of our three booths to see how 3D printing is shaping the way we manufacture."
Stratasys will head to Frankfurt in just a few weeks time to showcase this new line at EuroMold taking place from 25th - 28th November.
