tangible engineering showcases ultra-fast 8k large-format resin 3D printer Solidator at Formnext 2023
At Formnext 2023, tangible engineering will be presenting the ultra-fast Solidator 8K Resin 3D printer with an impressive 8K resolution. The German company is revolutionising the 3D printing market with a volumetric build speed of up to 9157 cm³ per hour and a large build volume of 330 x 185 x 400 mm.
"We have been using the Solidator ourselves in our production for years," says Tim Fischer, Managing Director of tangible engineering GmbH. "We can now produce parts for our push-to-open mechanism in impressive quantities. 17 seconds per part or for example a Lego® building block in 5 seconds in series production. These dimensions were previously unattainable."
The new Solidator makes 3D printing economically viable for series production
The new system makes series production in 3D printing economical and flexible. The frequent break between prototyping and series production in practice is resolved. End consumer parts can be produced economically with the new system using the 3D printing process. Future products can thus be manufactured in digital warehouses as required using the 3D printing process wherever they are needed.
The broad Material portfolio comprises 19 materials including specialities such as ESD resin, ceramic composites, ultra-tough, high-temperature and materials for dental technology.
This makes the Solidator 3D printer suitable for many industries: From the automotive industry to dentistry.
Another special feature of the printer is its automatic refill system, combined with the calibration of all subsystems. These features, combined with the high production rate, make it the ideal choice for series production.
Precision thanks to native 8k Ultra HD resolution
With its 8K resolution, the printer achieves an impressive depth of detail of 43 microns, which is about as thick as a human hair. This precision is ideal for fine details and ensures smooth surfaces - a major advantage in mould making and dentistry.
