This week’s RAPID + TCT conference in Fort Worth, Texas is home to a dizzying assortment of new product launches as the large North American event continues. New 3D printers are emerging at a fast pace – and with high speeds.

nexa3dIn November, XYZprinting announced a partnership with Nexa3D, which makes professional, ultra-fast SLA 3D printers. Now, the two are announcing the first preview of their new MfgPro220 xPF 3D printer at RAPID. 

The MfgPro220 xPF, powered by Nexa3D’s proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) technology and patented structured light matrix that reaches speeds of 1 cm per minute, is the first ultra-fast 3D printer presented by the companies together, and comes with an extended build volume of 16 liters – twice the amount of its competitors. Another feature it offers over other contenders is its affordability: the $19,950 MfgPro220 xPF is a fifth of the cost of equivalent systems.

“High-speed 3D printing is the next competitive frontier in additive manufacturing. These printers are prized by end-users, strategic partners and resellers alike for their capacity to quickly produce high-precision projects, offering new possibilities for innovative design and production,” said XYZprinting Senior Vice President Michele Marchesan.

The new MfgPro220 xPF 3D printer, configured to run with both on-board and cloud controls for in-situ and remote operations as either a single printer or a full factory, uses deep machine learning algorithms to slice, optimize, and compile geometries at high resolution and uniform speed. Its integrated sensors and cognitive software work together to optimize manufacturing part performance, offer continuous modeling, and provide detailed diagnostics.

The companies will offer live demonstrations of the MfgPro220 xPF at the XYZprinting booth #2142 at RAPID this week, and it will be available for purchase this November.

Another SLA leader, DWS Systems, is presenting a preview of its new 3D printer at RAPID – the powerful, large-format XPRO S, which we first saw at CES 2018. The industrial-grade XPRO S, priced at $132,000 with a print platform of 300 x 300 x 300 mm, delivers the most cost-effective precision parts using the company’s best purpose-made materials at convincing scale.

The XPRO S, with low-running costs and no planned maintenance cost, can operate 24 hours a day.

“Durability and reliability are the hallmarks of this new 3D printer. For industrial scale applications, enterprises are looking for equipment that produces high and consistent output,” said DWS’ CTO Maurizio Costabeber. “The XPRO S delivers on these fronts while also providing industrial-grade precision parts with high resolution for every application.”

DWS’ newest 3D printer was developed for large companies that need large printing areas for fast production of high-quality precision models, though the 3D printer is also a good fit for production departments that require quick design and industrial objects.

To see the XPRO S for yourself, visit the company’s booth #2030 at RAPID this week.

3DPrint.com is also at RAPID all week, bringing you all of the latest news from the showroom floor as we look forward to seeing these and many other new product introductions in person.
