Swedish 3D printer manufacturer Magicfirm Europe AB first released its ZYYX printer back in 2014, complete with an innovative fan system that eliminates fumes from melting printer filament. The company has been building on its success ever since, releasing the ZYYX+ in early 2016 and announcing distribution partnerships with Magnacad and Hawk 3D Proto. This week, the company announced that it is releasing a new 3D printer – the desktop, industrial grade ZYYX Pro 3D printer, developed so engineering professionals can rapidly produce high-strength, custom parts without leaving their desks. The company is also releasing some new 3D printing filaments to go along with its new 3D printer.
“Many of our customers have expressed a need for high-strength parts,” said Mats Moosberg, CEO of Magicfirm Europe and creator of the ZYYX 3D printer. “The ZYYX pro and our new pro filaments will meet their requirements for functional prototypes and end-use parts such as tools, jigs and fixtures.”
While you may not think that industrial and desktop go together, the ZYYX Pro was ultimately built for professionals, upon the original printer’s proven platform, and features material monitoring, automatic leveling, and a heated chamber. An exciting new feature is the SwiftTool: in order to further improve uptime, the user can replace the printer’s tool head in less than a minute. Additionally, as the ZYYX Pro will be used in office environments, the 3D printer was designed to be quiet and safe, thanks to its new OfficeSafe filtering system. The system, with a HEPA filter and active carbon, allows users to 3D print with any material, as odors and ultrafine particles are safely removed.
In order to maximize quality and uptime, the ZYYX also includes the proTect material system, which ensures that 3D printing material is kept in good condition. The system, which comes with a sealed filament box, vacuum pump, dehumidifier, and vacuum storage, ensures the quality and durability of the material while it’s being stored, and while it’s in use.
The ZYYX Pro isn’t the only new thing that MagicFirm Europe is unveiling: the company has also added three new materials to its ZYYX line of proFilaments. Users can choose between the new ZYYX proNylon, proCarbon, and proKev, for manufacturing functional prototypes and end-use parts, like jigs, fixtures, and tools. In addition, so users can be sure that abrasive materials won’t cause the 3D printing process to slow down, every unit of new ZYYX proCarbon material will also be delivered with the ZYYX Pro’s hard-coated SwiftTool.
“The ZYYX pro fits very nicely in our product portfolio and fills a clear gap in the market: The need to print with engineering materials. Should the ZYYX pro user want to print with materials such as proPLA or proABS, we offer a multi-material extension kit,” said Anders Johansson, CMO of Magicfirm Europe. “We are very proud of the result and are really happy to present this to the market together with a substantial early-bird discount!”
Magicfirm Europe is currently accepting orders for its ZYYX Pro 3D printer. Currently, a campaign offer is available: you can order the ZYYX Pro, a multi-material extension kit, and 750 g of ZYYX proCarbon filament, all for €3,600; delivery time is eight weeks. The suggested retail price for the ZYYX Pro, by itself, is €4,250, with the multi-material extension kit costing €295.
