3D printer Objet Connex 500 & miniFactory Ultra

3D printer Objet Connex 500

The polyjet printing process makes it possible to combine many different photopolymers in one print. In addition, complex part geometries of, for example, exterior and interior components can be realized.

  • Plastics-based, additive manufacturing of functional and design components for use in rapid tooling, among other things.
  • Use of PolyJet technology through droplet-shaped application of photopolymers
  • Different plastics can be combined during a print job
  • Direct use of the components through immediate drying by means of UV illumination
  • Maximum build volume: 490 x 390 x 200 mm
  • Layer thickness: 15 – 30 µm
  • Development of solutions for rapid tooling and prototyping
  • Immediate creation of plastic-based functional and design components in electromobility
  • Review and verification of different material combination options, mechanical properties and possible applications of additive manufacturing in the electromobility value chain
  • Determination of necessary quality properties and their control options

3D Printer miniFactory Ultra

With the Minifactory Ultra 3D printer, complex component geometries of components can be quickly implemented with a high-performance FFF process, supporting agile development processes.

  • High-performance 3D printer for challenging materials such as PEEK, PEKK, PEI (ULTEM™), PPSU, as well as CF and GF composites.
  • Build temperature of up to 250°C (higher than Tg of common polymers) to reduce warping and stresses
  • Automated and integrated post-processing of printed components to reduce or eliminate residual stresses and strains
  • Maximum build volume: 330 x 180 x 180 mm
  • Integrated monitoring of printing parameters with the in-house developed AARNI process monitoring system
  • Filament chamber heat able up to 120°C with integrated moisture monitoring by the AARNI system.
  • Use of additive manufacturing processes for the direct production of components made of high-performance polymers
  • Plastics-based additive manufacturing of functional and design components for use in additive tooling and rapid prototyping, among other applications
  • Additive manufacturing processes to enable agile development approaches and rapid implementation of functional and design components
  • Use for direct additive manufacturing of medical technology components made of PEEK
