The Massivit 5000 will enable manufacturers and service providers across a range of industries to expedite their lead times for manufacturing large parts, prototypes and tooling by up to 30 times the production speed of existing technologies.
The printer is designed to dramatically expedite large-scale manufacturing, prototyping, and tooling for the automotive, marine and rail industries. Based on the company’s unique, patented Gel Dispensing Printing (GDP) technology – already adopted across 40 countries for fast, cost-effective production of large parts – the Massivit 5000 introduces to the market new resolutions, materials and automation capabilities that address industry 4.0 needs, enabling production of large-scale parts within hours instead of weeks.
A new printing material, DIMENGEL 110, now available with the Massivit 5000, facilitates high-definition printing and greater fidelity to CAD designs. Two new resolutions enable print optimisation according to layer thickness and speed requirements. The Massivit 5000 offers a Dual Material System that allows operators to print simultaneously with a different material on each head. New software automation features also allow operators to improve workflow efficiencies and enable easy monitoring and operations.
This latest addition to the Massivit 3D portfolio of large-scale 3D printers facilitates complex, large parts up to 145cm x 111cm x 180cm that instantly cure during the printing process, enabling ready-made parts straight off the printer without the need for post-processing and with almost no required support structures.
Erez Zimerman, CEO at Massivit 3D said, ‘We are thrilled to bring to market this new additive manufacturing system that will empower manufacturers to overcome existing limitations in production speed, size and complexity. It is a significant milestone on our roadmap towards transforming manufacturing of large parts across multiple industries.’
According to Ian Mason, the company’s EMEA Business Development Manager, the Massivit 3D range of products are currently available directly from Massivit 3D, however Mason is actively looking for a reseller/distributor within the territory to assist with the growing demand around the world.
Commenting during the online launch, Mason said, ‘The registrants from South Africa and neighbouring countries were a pleasant surprise. It’s a great indicator that there are emerging markets for large format 3D printers in the territory.’
