voxeljet announced the launch of its newest large-format industrial 3D printer, the VX2000.
The printer is equipped with a build space of two cubic meters, making it one of the largest commercially available 3D printing platforms in the market, the company says. The large build format is suited to a variety of applications in the automotive or aviation industry, at foundries, pump manufacturers or the equipment building industry.
"The VX2000 closes the big gap between the VX1000, with a design space of 0.3 cubic meters, and the VX4000, with a design space of eight cubic meters. We now offer a balanced product range that enables us to provide our customers with an industrial 3D printer for any conceivable application area," said Ingo Ederer, voxeljet's CEO.
The new industrial printer is designed for use with all particle materials currently available at voxeljet. voxeljet's customers can use the build space (2060 x 1060 x 1000 mm) for the economic manufacture of large individual molds or small series manufacture, depending on their requirements.
The unit's high performance ink-jet head contains up to 13,280 nozzles, at resolutions of up to 600 dpi depending upon the application. The layer thickness during one print run ranges from 100 to 400 micrometers, with a print width of 564 millimeters. The printed build volume is 45 liters per hour.
