The NEOS 800: RPS Releases Professional New SLA 3D Printer at TCT Show Birmingham

Share this Article

rps-logoAs TCT Show Birmingham kicks into high gear, 3DPrint.com has been on location where over 200 exhibitors are showing their high-tech goods to visitors from more than 60 countries. One new 3D printer on the scene hails also from the UK, manufactured by RP Support—and targeting users with a need for a professional stereolithography system.

The NEOS 800 is a creation of RPS engineers, responsible for the design, development, and production of the new SLA printer. Boasting an 800 x 800 x 600 mm build envelope and an open resin system, this machine is meant to meet manufacturing requirements. It can also be accentuated with medium 300 mm or short 120 mm vats that can be sleeved into the standard vats.

two-rps As for commercial materials, the NEOS 800 uses those curing at a wavelength of 355 nm, employing a 2 watt solid state frequency tripled Nd:YVO 4 laser, at 355 mm which will also allow the system to process highly filled materials requiring high laser powers.

As the RPS engineers, with 85 years of cumulative experience between them, began developing this new machine, they knew it was important to produce not just a superior and serviceable product, but also one that offers stability and high performance.

“This is an exceptionally well engineered system, designed and developed by people who understand the product,” commented David Storey, Executive Director at RPS.  “It has a truly open resin system that is adaptable to meet different customer’s resin requirements, and we are very pleased to be launching it at this year’s TCT Show in September.”

The overall machine size is 1350 (w) x 1630 (d) x 2300 (h) mm, and it weighs around 1,590 kg when holding a full vat of resin. The engineers selected superior components as they created a robust and reliable system that RPS states is capable of continuous production at high scan speeds. The system also features recoater blades that are easy to clean, a modular design, and a built-in webcam.

RPS engineers also designed the Titanium software, which is meant to work with Windows 10 and offers many similarities to the operating system in terms of display and ease of use featuring a logical workflow and convenience in changing build parameters even while the machine is at work. Once a job is complete, the NEOS sends an email notifying the user, along with a photograph of the 3D print.

“We are very proud of our knowledge, experience and reputation at RPS, and to have such a brilliant team of people, who have shown their capabilities in designing this exciting new product,”, said Steve Moran, Director at RPS. “We truly believe we can drive stereolithography technology further and provide manufacturers with hardware solutions to meet their future manufacturing challenges.”

If you are attending TCT Show in Birmingham this week, stop by RPS stand C18 where they will be displaying the NEOS 800 and also showing off sample parts built with the new 3D printer. Note: data sheets offering more information on the NEOS 800 will be available at the launch. Discuss further in the NEOS 800 3D Printer forum over at 3DPB.com.
