Shanghai, China – June 15, 2020, the leading industrial 3D printer manufacturer INTAMSYS—after having recently launched the FUNMAT PRO 610 HT, a 3D printing machine for high performance material production-grade applications—has just released the latest addition to its AM solutions portfolio, the FLEX 510, a high-speed 3D printer for flexible materials production.
Specially designed for the production of sporting goods, medical rehabilitation equipment and tooling and fixtures, the newly released FLEX 510 is INTAMSYS’s latest cutting-edge 3d printing solution.
The INTAMSYS FLEX 510 is another breakthrough 3D printing solution for the additive manufacturing industry. The FLEX 510 solves some industry issues when it comes to printing flexible materials. Among those issues are the difficulty printing flexible materials at high speeds and meeting the needs of the industry customers. The FLEX 510 adopts SXBSTM (Smart eXtruder Bay System) technology which enables a seamless design and manufacturing connection. Flexible materials such as TPU combine the characteristics of plastic and rubber, and can produce elastic, highly durable, bendable or compressed parts, which is the best choice for sporting goods design, fashion design and medical rehabilitation equipment.
“I believe that the introduction of the FLEX 510 will accelerate the innovation of the industry’s design and the manufacturing process, and push more and more related industries towards customized smart manufacturing,” said INTAMSYS Marketing Director Colin Fei.
High-Speed Printing | Designed for Production
The FLEX 510 incorporates the HSFETM (High Speed Flexible Material Extrusion) technology, a high-speed flexible material extrusion technology developed by INTAMSYS, which solves one of the industry biggest challenges, a slow process caused by flexible materials being too soft to feed through the system at a fast pace. The overall printing efficiency can be increased by more than five times. Thanks to an independent dual-nozzle configuration, you can achieve duplicate printing or mirror printing at an ultra-fast pace, thus helping solving 3D printing production efficiency constraints.
Break Through Design Limitations | Greater Design Freedom
Existing material extrusion 3D printing equipment generally comes with a single nozzle, dual nozzles or mixed nozzles with multiple materials. The printed model can only be compatible with at most two materials, and cannot meet the printing needs of multiple colors and multiple material models.
INTAMSYS’s SXBSTM technology enables you to manage up to four nozzles which can freely switch during the printing process, and enables you to print up to four different TPU materials or four different colors per print, thus enhancing printing efficiency.
If designers can implement and iterate designs as soon as possible, they can get products into the market faster, especially for the sporting goods industry, with faster product iterations. INTAMSYS’s unique technological innovation will bring designers unparalleled design freedom and flexibility. Now they can seamlessly bring design and manufacturing together, accelerating the progress of 3D printing to mass customized manufacturing.
Smart Design | Reduced Manual Intervention
The FLEX 510 uses Active Automatic Leveling technology (AALTM), saving customers precious time, as they don’t need to manually adjust platform parameters. This feature reduces the user’s technical threshold without compromising the quality and speed of the printed product.
INTAMSYS is a fast-growing industrial-grade 3D printer manufacturer. INTAMSYS serves the world’s leading customers in the fields of aerospace, automotive, electronics manufacturing, medical, education, scientific research, etc. With innovative additive manufacturing solutions, it promotes the development of industry technology and expands the application fields of 3D printing.
