XYZprinting is one of the most prolific 3D printer manufacturers out there, introducing multiple new machines every year. The company is known for its affordable, user-friendly desktop 3D printers, but now it has announced that it’s entering the industrial 3D printer market – and, true to form, it’s not just unveiling one new printer, but five. With a variety of technologies, the new offerings cover a lot of ground, from the factory floor to the dentist’s office.
The MfgPro230 xS is XYZprinting’s first selective laser sintering (SLS) machine. It’s designed for applications that include engineering, aerospace, automotive and general manufacturing. According to XYZprinting, it’s easy to operate, like the company’s other 3D printers are designed to be, and generates parts with strength and precision. The MfgPro230 xS has a build volume of 230 x 230 x 230 cm and prints at a speed of up to one liter per hour. A removable build tray allows users to print more efficiently, cleaning one finished part while beginning another. The MfgPro230 is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2018 to a limited number of customers and resellers as part of an early access program. The price should be around $60,000.
The PartPro350 xBC Binder-Jet Full-Color 3D Printer is a fast machine with a vertical build speed of 18 mm per hour and a build volume of 350 x 222 x 200 mm. It features page-wide Binder Jet 3D printing technology that combines printing, coloring and curing into one process for high-resolution full-color prints. Like the MfgPro230 xS, the PartPro350 xBC comes with a removable build tray that lets users start a new print job as soon as the previous one has been completed. It will also be available in the first quarter of 2018 to a limited number of people through an early access program. The PartPro350 xBC is expected to be priced starting at $30,000.
XYZprinting also has multiple DLP printers that will be available soon. The first is the PartPro100 xP, a desktop DLP 3D printer that can print with rigid, tough or standard resins. It’s suitable for a wide range of applications, offering speed and precision and allowing customers to create custom parts more quickly and cheaply. The PartPro100 xP should be available around the second quarter of 2018, with an expected price of $2,399.
The DentPro100 xP is, according to XYZprinting, the company’s most advanced medical 3D printer yet. Also a desktop DLP printer, the DentPro100 xP is well-suited for dental applications, offering precision, high resolution and speed. It can be connected to a USB cable, USB drive or Ethernet, and it’s compatible with XYZprinting’s FDA Class 1 certified dental resin as well as its biomedical resin. The DentPro100 xP is expected to be available around the second quarter of 2018 for a cost of $2,699.
The third DLP printer being introduced is the CastPro100 xP. It offers a high level of detail and is highly castable, as well as fast, capable of printing an object of 2.8 cm in height in just an hour. It’s compatible with a range of resin materials, making it suitable for applications including jewelry and dental uses. The CastPro100 xP is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2018 for a price of $2,699.
XYZprinting will be presenting its new industrial range of 3D printers at formnext, which is taking place in Frankfurt, Germany from November 14th to the 17th. In addition, the company will be announcing the availability of its latest desktop 3D printers. The da Vinci Color was introduced in September and features XYZprinting’s new 3DColorJet technology, which combines FFF 3D printing and inkjet printing into one process. It will be available for purchase on November 15th.
Also being presented is the da Vinci Super, XYZprinting’s largest desktop FFF 3D printer yet. It has a build volume of 30cm3 and is compatible with a wide range of filaments, including ABS, PLA, TPE, Tough PLA, nylon, PETG, and PC. Its nozzle can be adjusted up to 300 degrees. In typical XYZprinting fashion, it’s designed to be user-friendly, with automatic calibration, power failure recovery and a pause feature that allows users to change filament mid-print. It will be available on November 15th.
XYZprinting’s many new 3D printers will be on display in Hall 3.1, Booth D10.
