3D print pioneer voxeljet from Friedberg (Bavaria) is celebrating a special kind of anniversary. The high-tech company, which has established a name for itself as a manufacturer of industrial 3D printing systems and as a service provider for the on-demand production of sand molds and plastic models, is pleased to announce that it is delivering its 100th 3D printer in November 2015.
The machine in question is a VX1000—a multi-purpose 3D printer that combines high performance with a large build space (1000 x 600 x 500 mm) and can meet even the most demanding industry requirements. The printing system can be operated with plastic and sand particle materials and is ideally suited for the precise manufacture of prototypes, small component series and models. In combination with the phenolic direct binding process, the 3D printer offers significant advantages over current sand printing processes, such as the ability to recycle non-printed particle material. This is just one of the reasons why the VX1000 has become the best-selling printer of the voxeljet portfolio.
The manufacturer has recently registered steadily growing demand for 3D printing systems. Hubert Stärker, Director Sales and Marketing at voxeljet, knows the reasons for this development: "Many customers who have their molds printed at our service center eventually want their own 3D printer, whether for reasons of flexibility or economy. Another reason for the positive development lies in the many advantages offered by the 3D printing technology, which are gradually making their way into more industries and induce companies to purchase their own machines."
The reason that more and more people who are interested in a 3D printer choose voxeljet is the machines' superior performance. They feature high-performance print heads that ensure excellent resolution along with above-average print speeds, allowing for the rapid and cost-efficient printing of build volumes of up to 8 m³.
In addition, the 3D printers are "made in Germany" at voxeljet's headquarters in Friedberg (near Augsburg). They are made entirely of high-quality components that ensure ongoing operations for many years to come. Tobias Reinold, Director Systems at voxeljet, is also optimistic about the future: "Demand for industrial 3D printers is very strong. We are well prepared for this demand and look forward to machine number 200."
