Objet1000 Plus Production System.
Stratasys has unveiled a new machine in its industrial 3D printing solutions line-up which can print at speeds up to 40 percent faster than its predecessor. The Objet1000 Plus 3D Production System boasts an extra large build envelope and accelerated speeds for demanding manufacturing applications including aerospace, automotive, medical devices, and consumer products as well as for service bureaus and universities.
The Objet1000 Plus brings versatility to large-scale 3D printing with the ability to mix materials and part sizes while maintaining ultra fine precision. Its 1000 x 800 x 500 mm print size is traversed with a new optimised print block movement which, alongside other refinements and simple post processing, results in reduced cost-per-part and unlike many large-format systems, there is no trade-off between part size and part quality.
The production system benefits from compatibility with more than 100 Stratasys materials and is capable of producing tough parts with smooth surface finishes in high-speed mode while taking advantage of the new Endur Digital Materials which combine two resins in a single material for a wider range of material properties.
Objet1000 Plus 3D Production System is compatible with Endur polypropylene-like material.
“The range of materials is quite extensive,” says Ron Ellenbogen, Stratasys Product Marketing Director. “From rubber-like materials to Digital ABS to various Shore A levels, up to 14 material properties are possible on a single part. And many parts can be produced with varying properties in a single run.”
With an identical workflow to smaller PolyJet 3D printing systems, the system is simple to operate and designed for long periods of unattended operation.
Ellenbogen added: “Today’s designers and engineers at manufacturing companies and service bureaus need an additive manufacturing system that can take on all challenges – large and small. We believe that’s the big advantage of the Objet1000 Plus Production System. It is the first of its kind to combine large print sizes, multiple materials, accelerated print speeds, super fine resolution and a simplified workflow. If you need to create industrial 1:1 scale prototypes, large ergonomic production tools or low volumes of small parts – all with the superior surface finish and fine details engineers expect from Stratasys 3D printing – the Objet1000 Plus is the best choice.”
