EnvisionTEC announced the release of the new Vector Hi-Res 3SP 3d printer. The Vector Hi-Res 3SP has a large build envelope of 300 x 175 x 200 mm (11.8 x 6.9 x 7.9 in.) and offers outstanding resolution of 0.002" or 60 µm in the X and Y planes. That is nearly double the resolution of the original Vector 3SP, a popular model that launched a year ago.
The new 3D printer will be able to process a variety of proprietary materials ideal for manufacturers, including ABS Tough, ABS Hi-Impact, E-Glass and E-Tool, which is designed for short-run injection molding of thermoplastics. The system also includes a standalone PC with a large 56-cm (22-inch) touchscreen monitor.
Additionally, EnvisionTEC's exclusive strategic partner, Viridis3D, demonstrated its Robotic Additive Manufacturing (RAM) for the first time in Europe. The RAM 123 uses a unique binder jetting head attached to a multi-axis, high-precision robot arm from ABB to print affordable and detailed sand molds and cores for the foundry industry.
"EnvisionTEC is a company that provides genuine solutions for manufacturing professionals and the Vector Hi-Res and RAM 123 are the latest examples of our commitment to that mission," said Chief Operating Officer John Hartner.
With the expanding 3SP line, the RAM 123 and SLCOM, EnvisionTEC continues to offer more 3D printing solutions to traditional manufacturing and industrial customers.
"EnvisionTEC has shown steady growth over the past 15 years because of our dedication to developing solutions to real-world problems," Chief Executive Officer Al Siblani said. "Our 3D printers and materials are made to matter for the professional manufacturing community."
