The leading jewelry event in North America, JCK Las Vegas, starts this Monday, June 5 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. This is one of the largest shows in the country, and gives visitors the chance to see the latest trends and exhibits from jewelry designers all around the world. Where there’s custom jewelry, there’s 3D printing, as the technology offers a way to make quality jewelry at a lower cost in less time; even the federal R&D Tax Credit supports the technology in the jewelry industry. At last year’s show, EnvisionTEC made a splash with its Micro Plus cDLM jewelry 3D printer, but it looks like this year, XYZprinting will have the printer that everyone’s talking about.
Today at JCK 2017, the leading 3D printer manufacturer announced the launch of its newest professional 3D printer, the Nobel Superfine. This printer is the company’s first Digital Light Processing (DLP) 3D printing solution for product designers. Its speed and accuracy make it well-suited to jewelry designers, and also to dental 3D printing and other enterprise 3D printing creators. The Nobel Superfine allows users to work in a style that’s similar to wax casting, and is the company’s most precise and fastest DLP machine.
XYZprinting is committed to offering cost-effective 3D printers to consumers, small to mid-sized businesses, and artists. According to the company, the Nobel Superfine is the most affordable 3D printer in its class, with the MSRP set at $2,699 in the US market.
Simon Shen, the CEO of XYZprinting, said, “The Nobel Superfine is aimed squarely at empowering professional designers and business owners with cost effective solutions to grow their business. Every decision made during the ideation and design phases of the Nobel Superfine was made based on the principle of balancing high quality printed products with easy maintenance over time for its users. We believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for affordability.”
At the JCK 2017 show this week, XYZprinting will be showing sample jewelry that was 3D printed on the Nobel Superfine, like bracelets and brooches, rings and tiaras, that work instantly with investment casting.
Jewelry designers who use the Nobel Superfine will enjoy a simplified printing process, and a very attractive result, as the 3D printer makes high-quality molds. Its waxy resin is very similar to the lost-wax technique of casting, and produces beautiful pieces of jewelry.
The Nobel Superfine comes completely assembled and enclosed, so you won’t have to waste any time on struggling through pages of instructions to put it together. Additionally, the printer doesn’t require any calibration, so it’s very easy to set it up and maintain it. It has a super long-life resin tank, an adjustable 50 micron X/Y axis, and offers up to 25-micron layer height on the Z-axis.
