Today, during formnext 2018 in Frankfurt in Germany, INTAMSYS has released their FUNMAT PRO 410 3D printer. This printer features smarter design and is multiple functional materials 3D printing all-in-one solution ideal for industry additive manufacturing. This industrial 3D printer, with its 12x12x16 inches printing volume, will expand INTAMSYS’ current FUNMAT series product line. INTAMSYS now has a complete line up of high-performance high-temperature printers to meet the growing demand for these industrial systems capable of processing multiple functional materials such as PC, PA, PA+CF, ULTEM, PEEK, etc.
INTAMSYS has always led the functional materials 3D printing market in terms of value and ease of use, the FUNMAT PRO 410 is no exception. However this time INTAMSYS has gone further in meeting customer’s needs through innovations in design and engineering. The new FUNMAT PRO 410 has Advanced Thermal Design which includes a heated build chamber up to 90℃, a high-temperature nozzle to 450℃ and a heated build plate up to 160℃. This leads to fewer print failures, less warping, better control over crystallization, better layer adhesion and better surface quality. All these features enable FUNMAT PRO 410 provide customers with multiple functional materials 3D printing all-in-one solution.
The 410 also includes Dual Nozzle giving users dual nozzle 3D printing capabilities which expands their design space. There is one dedicated support and another dedicated build material nozzle. The support material nozzle can be moved up and down during printing to avoid scratching in normal dual nozzle design. This coupled with the high speed and high precision that the printer is capable of will increase user performance and satisfaction. Build plate leveling is automated and done through the help of advanced sensors. There is also an automated jam warning system, a filament detection system and a power failure recovery function. The 410 also has WiFi, network cable and USB connectivity. Furthermore, this printer has a very nice industrial design. All these features above make the 410 an office friendly and smart industrial 3D printer as well as an ideal solution for factory usage.
The FUNMAT PRO 410 is not only easy to use but also has been made to high safety standards. It has also been optimized for continuous production. This is a workhorse of a printer that is meant to be used day in day out, no idle desktop slouch the 410 is a machine meant for the enterprise.
The 410 Tri design means that the printer, nozzles and profiles have been optimized for three distinct groups of materials. PLA, Engineering Plastics and High-Performance materials have very different considerations and settings while being printed. With the Tri design philosophy, performance has been optimized for each of these groups of materials. Each group also has their own support materials for easy printing with support. The 410 should work well as a printer for the quotidian PLA and also for ultra-high performance materials such as CF PEEK and PEKK.
The FUNMAT PRO 410 has been created in order to print multiple functional materials. PEEK and PEI, for example, have very high abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, and strength. These materials let you print real-world parts with high performance. For ABS, PC, PA, PA+CF etc., very frequently used engineering materials in industry, this printer can also provide a perfect big size printing solution with dedicated support materials.
The printer is also suitable for office application like R&D functional test during new product development. With a seven inches smart panel, the printer feels intuitive. Key information is easy to see and adjust as well. For experienced 3D printer operators working with the FUNMAT will be a breeze. For companies new to 3D printing this tool will be relatively easy to master. Whether you are printing single prototypes or doing a continuous production of series of parts the 410 will be your reliable smart multiple functional materials all-in-one solution provider and 3D printing application exploration partner.
