Manufacturer and distributor of patented 3D rapid prototyping and manufacturing solutions, EnvisionTEC, is presenting its new ‘ULTRA 3SP 3D Printing Technology’ to the European market for the first time at K 2013.
The Michigan-headquartered company, which specialises in 3D printing solutions based on Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, is demonstrating its newest 3D printing technology for its ULTRA family of 3D printers: Scan, Spin and Selectively Photocure (3SP) at the show.
EnvisionTEC says 3SP technology is an innovative solution for 3D printing, with the ability to produce highly accurate parts at a competitive cost whilst maintaining great surface quality and material functionality. The company says this new “breakthrough technology” will be used to expand its offerings in the large-frame 3D printer market.
EnvisionTEC is also showing visitors examples from its Perfactory, Perfactory Micro and Perfactory desktop 3D printer families. The Perfactory contains a wide range of solution-based models. With specific solutions geared towards the jewellery, dental and hearing aid markets, the Perfactory family also includes options that can be tailored to any use requiring high-resolution and excellent surface finish.
First released in 2012, EnvisionTEC describes the Perfactory Micro as “the smallest desktop 3D printer with the highest resolution, that is a low cost, easy maintenance and user-friendly system, designed for producing high quality models, for use by consumers and design professionals.” Finally, the Perfactory desktop family aims to provide a mid-range group of 3D printers with all of the features of the larger models in a desktop size for smaller companies and designers.
