Stratasys Industrial 3D production system for versatile, faster additive manufacturing
Germany – Stratasys has introduced the industrial-scale Objet 1000 Plus 3D production system which is said to offer extra large print size and accelerated speeds for demanding manufacturing applications including aerospace, automotive, medical devices, and consumer products as well as for service bureaus and unis.
According to the company, the Objet 1000 Plus brings versatility to the world of large-scale 3D printing in its ability to mix materials and part sizes while maintaining ultra-fine precision. Its extra large build envelope (1000 mm x 800 mm x 500 mm) is efficiently traversed with an optimised print block movement that accelerates print speeds up to 40% faster than its predecessor, Stratasys says. It adds that this productivity boost alongside other refinements and simple post processing, results in reduced cost-per-part.
Users can choose from more than 100 Stratasys materials including the polypropylene-like Endur. According to the supplier, the Objet 1000 Plus can produce tough parts with smooth surface finishes in high-speed mode while taking advantage of the new Endur Digital Materials which combine two resins in a single material for a wider range of material properties.
