EnvisionTEC announced the unveiling of a patented new breakthrough technology, cDLM™, Continuous Digital Light Manufacturing. The Micro Plus cDLM is the first 3D printer to print 3D models for direct investment casting for the jewelry industry in minutes rather than hours.
"The addition of cDLM technology to EnvisionTEC's Micro Plus 3D printer is a game changer for the jewelry industry," said EnvisionTEC CEO Al Siblani, "Traditionally, 3D printing castable materials such as our PIC 100 would take hours to build. With cDLM, bridal and fashion rings can be designed, grown, and ready for investment casting the same day, which is a huge advantage for the jewelry market."
The Micro Plus cDLM has average build speeds of 10-20 minutes per inch in Z for the full build envelope, depending on the material used, and a build size of 45 x 28 x 75 mm. As the rest of EnvisionT EC's Micro Plus line, the Micro Plus cDLM will feature an industrial UV LED light engine, an integrated PC with Wi-Fi, and a convenient built-in touchscreen.
"EnvisionTEC has a long history of innovation, with a focus on 3D printing parts that are made to matter. Providing real solutions to real application problems has become the hallmark of our research and development team's efforts. Adding the speed of cDLM to our professional grade jewelry 3D printing lineup will provide our customers with unprecedented manufacturing turnaround times," added Siblani.
The Micro Plus cDLM will be available August 2016.
