VJET X 3D Printer is dedicated to Additive Mass Manufacturing and is presented to the public for the first time
voxeljet AG and its partners announce the official launch of VJET X, its new technology for additive mass manufacturing. The German company has a reputation of manufacturer of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand parts services to industrial and commercial customers.
In October 2018, the company revealed that the new line of VJET X 3D Printers was part of its strategy for 2019. Key in this strategy was also the automotive industry. A commitment that Voxelet has honoured as they are about to showcase the new line for the first time at GIFA, the showcase for casting technology that takes place from 25 to 29 June 2019 in Duesseldorf, Germany.
So, what do we know about VJET X?
Ideal for automotive serial production, the manufacturer claims the 3D Printer makes additive mass manufacturing possible. The system integrates multiple printing and recoating units which move with unparalleled speed.
As far as the automotive industry is concerned, the 3D Printer could be easily integrated into conventional casting lines hence the presence of Voxeljet at GIFA.
The manufacturer states the new line is 10 times faster than previous models. As a matter of fact, the 3D Printers can achieve a layer speed of less than 5 seconds. Voxeljet also takes into account one crucial issue in 3D Printing: the 3D Printer emissions. The VJET X integrates an inorganic binder system which ensures the 3D Printer never releases emissions during core printing, storage and when using the sand cores in the casting process.
Lastly, handling systems will support any pre- and postprocess operations including loading and unloading of the 3D printers; cleaning of the printed parts via robotic systems; transport of sand cores to casting lines.
Voxeljet seems ready to disrupt the automotive industry and we can’t wait to see applications achieved with this new line.
