Today, 3D printers have larger build volumes, better performance, and can print with a variety of materials and colors. With the release of the Admaflex 300 by Netherlands-headquartered Admatec, industrial users can look forward to using a 3D printer for both ceramic and metal too. With a build volume of 200x200x300mm, the Admaflex 300 is meant to produce large-scale parts in high volume, while also offering in-process quality monitoring and meeting production demands for their clientele.
The larger build platform is meant to accommodate large alumina parts. By increasing volume for silica cores and shells, the Admaflex 300 offers openness, flexibility, and great potential for applications within industries like investment casing. The overall concept of this powerful new 3D printer is modular, and highly customizable—allowing clients enormous control as they are able to create and use their own materials as well as setting up the process for their own production requirements. In the future, multi-material printing will be possible due to the modularity of the Admaflex 300.
“Our customers’ feedback led to the development of an increased build platform size, enabling the investment casting industry, among others, to expand their ceramic 3D printing capabilities,” said Jaco Saurwalt, COO at Admatec.
Integrated in-process quality monitoring offers the following features also:
- Full traceability of the process
- Temperature & humidity monitoring
- Foil usage assessment
- Real-time video capture with a real-time, dual-camera system
- Time-lapse recording
DLP technology is integrated into the new metal/ceramic printer, along with an automated (patented) feedstock system. Coinciding with the beginning of Formnext 2019 in Frankfurt, the Admaflex 300 will be available for pre-ordering on Tuesday, November 19. The Admaflex 300 will also be presented in Hall 11 at the Admatec booth, A29.
There will be a ‘300 Happy Hour’ at 4:00 p.m. on November 21st, and everyone is invited. After Formnext is over, Admatec will be setting up demo times at their Netherlands showroom for interested parties.
