envisionTEC-headline copyThere hasn’t been any shortage of announcements coming from formnext from day one, as exhibitors and visitors descend on the massive tradeshow in Frankfurt, Germany this week, but we see that EnvisionTEC will be stealing at least part of the show with the debut of their Vector Hi-Res 3SP. The idea behind the 3SP part of the name is scan, spin, and selectively photocure, all from within an industrial printer that creates large 3D printed parts at high speed—and high quality.

Featuring a build envelope of 300 x 175 x 200 mm with resolution at 0.002” or 60 µm in the X and Y planes, this 3D printer has twice the resolution of its predecessor, the original Vector 3SP. The latest version also includes a PC as a standalone, with a 56-cm (22-inch) touchscreen monitor. The printer is able to connect directly to a PC workstation or can be integrated into a network to involve job processing and even remote monitoring.

  • ABS Tough
  • ABS Hi-Impact
  • E-Glass
  • E-Tool(for short-run injection molding of thermoplastics)

The 3SP line continues to grow also with the RAM 123 and SLCOM, all meant to offer industrial customers a wide range of options in manufacturing.

“EnvisionTEC is a company that provides genuine solutions for manufacturing professionals and the Vector Hi-Res and RAM 123 are the latest examples of our commitment to that mission,” said Chief Operating Office John Hartner, who will be giving at presentation at formnext at 11:30 AM on Thursday.

In ‘The Next Big Thing: 3D Printing with Composites,’ Hartner discusses EnvisionTEC’s technology, Selective Lamination Composite Object Manufacturing (SLCOM), allowing for fabrication with materials of woven fiber filled with thermoplastics.

Parts from the SLCOM 1 will also be on display in the EnvisionTEC booth, allowing for visitors to catch a true glimpse of what this high performance 3D printer is able to produce.

“EnvisionTEC has shown steady growth over the past 15 years because of our dedication to developing solutions to real-world problems,” Chief Executive Officer Al Siblani said. “Our 3D printers and materials are made to matter for the professional manufacturing community.”

Additional specs for the Vector Hi-Res 3SP are as follows:

  • Build Envelope – 300 x 175 x 200 mm (11.8 x 6.9 x 7.9 in.)
  • Footprint (L x W x H): 91 x 91 x 152 cm (36 x 36 x 60 in.)
  • Weight: 192 kg (423 lbs)
  • XY Resolution – 60 µm (0.002 in.)
  • Dynamic Voxel Resolution in Z (Material Dependent) – 50 – 100 µm (0.002 – 0.004 in.)
  • Data Handling – STL
  • Warranty – 1 year included

EnvisionTEC’s partner Viridis3D will also demonstrate their Robotic Additive Manufacturing (RAM). This will be the first time it has been shown off in Europe, allowing visitors to check out the unique binder jetting head connected to a robotic arm allowing for the 3D printing of molds and cores for foundries.

The Vector Hi-Res 3SP will be on display at booth E10 in hall 3.1. Discuss in the EnvisionTEC forum at 3DPB.com.
