Stratasys has launched the industrial-scale Objet1000 Plus 3D Production System. The technology offers extra-large print size and accelerated speeds for applications in the aerospace, automotive, medical device and consumer product industries.
The system has a build envelope of 39 x 31 x 19 inches and has print speeds up to 40% faster than previous offerings. It is compatible with more than 100 Stratasys materials, including the Endur Digital Materials.
“Today’s designers and engineers at manufacturing companies and service bureaus need an additive manufacturing system that can take on all challenges – large and small. We believe that’s the big advantage of the Objet1000 Plus Production System. It is the first of its kind to combine large print sizes, multiple materials, accelerated print speeds, super fine resolution and a simplified workflow. If you need to create industrial 1:1 scale prototypes, large ergonomic production tools or low volumes of small parts – all with the superior surface finish and fine details engineers expect from Stratasys 3D printing – the Objet1000 Plus is the best choice,” says Ron Ellenbogen, product marketing director at Stratasys.
In addition to a new system, the company has also introduced the Xtend 500 Fortus Plus, a high-volume filament package for Fortus systems. the box contains 500 cubic inches of FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) thermoplastic materials.
