Large-format 3D printing
voxeljet unveils its 3D printing system VX4000 – a machine that is set to cause a stir among international experts. It enables objects to be produced from particulate material with dimensions of 4 x 2 x 1 metres.
Dr. Ingo Ederer, CEO of voxeljet technology, is delighted with the capabilities of the new machine. "With our newwe can generate moulds the size of a sports car, the limit being a volume of eight cubic metres. This presents users with undreamt-of possibilities. The enormous build space enables the rapid production of large individual moulds, but is also flexible enough to allow the cost-effective production of small batches."
The new system scores high on flexibility and speed. The machine operates at three times the build speed of voxeljet's standard printers, but with the same resolution and precision. Users benefit from significant time and cost savings. The very look of the machine – almost 20 metres long and of high-quality design – sends a signal that this is a system for tough industrial conditions. The system design with building platforms that are inserted alternately into the process station allows for continuous, round-the-clock operation.
"Adding the VX4000 to our range of models expands our product portfolio of standard and high-definition printers in a logical way. With a range that extends from the VX500 through the VX800 to the VX4000, we now cover build space lengths of 500 to 4,000 mm. This means that we have the right system in our portfolio for virtually any application and any client – from architectural office to automaker", says Dr. Ederer.
