ELEGOO, a company specializing in the research, development and production of 3D printers, has launched the Saturn 2 8K MSLA Printer, an 8K printer in its product portfolio, at US$500. It also unveiled a new series of 8K resins, its latest Mercury XS Bundle Washing and Curing machine, and the Neptune 3 FDM printer. The latest product lineup is available for purchase.
ELEGOO's Saturn 2 8K is equipped with a 8K 10-in. mono LCD screen, which the company has jointly developed with Innolux, a subsidiary of the Foxconn Technology Group, a professional TFT-LCD panel manufacturer and a supplier of Apple.The Saturn 2 8K's screen delivers more clarity and precision for 3D printing. Saturn 2 8K can reproduce the details needed for realistic 3D models.
Recognizing the delicate nature of an 8K screen, ELEGOO's Saturn 2 8K has a replaceable 9H tempered film to guard against wear and tear. 9H tempered glass resists scratches from 9H pencils, the hardest standard grade of lead. As a result, the Saturn 2 8K is highly durable and has an extended screen life compared to other devices on the market.
Equipped with combination optical design of FCLS (Fresnel Collimating Light Source), a technology independently developed by the ELEGOO R&D team, the Saturn 2 8K overcomes the large-angle problem of typical COB light sources and the light spot problem of matrix light sources by adopting the Fresnel lens, an optical lens design technique that limits the light angle under 5 degrees. This results in more realistic printed models.
Working with ELEGOO's new 8K standard and water washable resins, ELEGOO also introduced the new thermochromic resin, which changes from gray to purple at 50 degrees Celsius and returns to its original color when cooled.
ELEGOO also released new iterations of products in its portfolio. A step up from the popular Neptune 2, the Neptune 3 printer is priced at $209.99, with features of RSG (Resistance Strain Gauge) Auto Leveling System, Filament Runout/Clog Detector and taking less than 10 minutes to install. In tandem, ELEGOO has launched its new Mars 3 Pro LCD Printer and Mercury XS Bundle Clean and Cure machine, priced at $300 and $180 respectively.
