- Production system can combine large prints, several materials, high speed, high resolution and simple operation,and it can handle both prototypes and manufacturing tools simultaneously
- Provides print speeds up to 40 percent faster than its predecessor, with lower cost per part
Minneapolis & Rehovot, Israel – April 13, 2015 – Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq:SSYS), a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, has introduced the industrial scale Objet1000 Plus 3D Production System which offers extra large print size and accelerated speeds for demanding manufacturing applications including aerospace, automotive, medical devices, and consumer products as well as for service bureaus and universities.
To learn more about the Objet1000 Plus, visit the Stratasys booth in Hall 7 Stand A40 at Hannover Messe 2015, April 13-17 in Hannover, Germany.
The Objet1000 Plus brings versatility to the world of large scale 3D printing in its ability to mix materials and part sizes while maintaining ultra fine precision. Its extra large build envelope (1000 x 800 x 500 mm or 39 x 31 x 19 inch) is efficiently traversed with a new optimized print block movement that accelerates print speeds up to 40 percent faster than its predecessor. This productivity boost alongside other refinements and simple post processing, results in reduced cost-per-part.
Users can choose from more than 100 Stratasys materials including the polypropylene-like Endur. The Objet1000 Plus can produce 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.
“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.”
All the benefits of Stratasys PolyJet 3D printing technology on an industrial scale
Unlike many large-format systems, there is no trade-off between part size and part quality. The workflow is identical to smaller PolyJet 3D printing systems, and the system is simple to operate and is designed for long periods of unattended operation.
“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,” says Ellenbogen.
