3D Systems demonstrates cutting-edge additive manufacturing techniques and services
3D dimensional printing has captured the attention of professionals and consumers alike worldwide. Mainstream media and blog’s abound with discussion around the merits of Additive Manufacture (AM) and how 3D printing will change our lives. This year’s Austech exhibition in Sydney (8 – 11 May 2012) will feature a special pavilion for digital and additive manufacturing.
3D Systems Asia-Pacific will showcase its wide range of 3D content-to-print solutions during the four days of the show, including examples of 3D Systems service bureau capabilities all the way through to full-scale manufacturing.
“We look forward to sharing our entire portfolio of 3D content-to-print solutions with Austech attendees,” says Kathryn Hay, 3D Systems Asia-Pacific Marketing Manager. “Austech is the perfect venue for visitors to experience our commitment to democratise access to powerful and affordable design-to-manufacturing tools and services.”
Recognised as a knowledge leader in the 3D printing and AM space, 3D Systems brings over two decades of experience providing best-in-class rapid prototyping, CNC machining and manufacturing services.
For those companies who wish to take their 3D printing needs in-house, 3D Systems offers a wide range of printers, from the 3D Touch Personal to the ProJet 3D Professional or Production 3D Printing System. 3D Systems’ stand (D175) provides visitors with an interactive and intuitive user experience featuring machine demonstrations of the Professional - ProJet HD 3000 and full-colour ZPrint parts designed to save time and money off your demanding development schedule. To experience 3D Systems additional printer range, visit Camplex and Benson Machines exhibits to explore the most complete range of affordable 3D content-to-print solutions available on the market today.
“Visitors will see first-hand the precision, durable plastic parts the machine creates, ideal for design validation, communication and rapid manufacturing,” Ms Hay explains. “It’s simple and affordable to use. The ProJet HD 3000 printers offer precision, high-definition parts, in a range of plastics with minimal post processing required to achieve high quality parts.”
With over 100 3D Printer materials, 3D Systems will be displaying some of the latest plastics available, including a high-temp resin, which is designed for optimal performance, accuracy and stability during prolonged exposure to high temperatures and humidity. It’s an ideal choice for prototype models requiring high thermal and moisture resistance, and provides good stiffness for demanding applications. Many of the new generation of materials have led to significant changes in the way industries approach manufacture. In fact the Dental, Hearing Aid and Medical implant markets are undergoing a digital revolution that is driving enormous gains in productivity and successful custom outcomes.
