Methods 3D Installs Projet MJP 3600 3D Printers in US Technical Centers

Methods 3D, Inc., a newly formed subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools, Inc. announced the addition of the new ProJet® MJP 3600 to its growing line of 3D printers and direct metal 3D printers from 3D Systems.

The ProJet MJP 3600 is designed for professional product prototyping and manufacturing across numerous industries. The MultiJet Printing technology produces high definition parts, outperforming all other jetting printers, in addition to providing a high capacity build volume and exceptionally fast print speeds - up to twice the speed of the previous generation. Its data processing capabilities support files up to 250% larger, enabling enhanced productivity for a wide range of prototyping, casting and end-use part production needs, as well as producing the truest-to-CAD parts of any jetting 3D printing process.

The ProJet MJP 3600 series include models designed for printing detailed wax patterns for jewelry castings, precise patterns for other lost wax foundry casting applications, and dental applications for precise models and casting wax ups. It can also be used for advanced healthcare applications, including drill and cut guides for dental and medical procedures with the ability to print in USP Class VI-capable, bio-compatible materials.  The high resolution of multijet printing means that even fine features come out correctly.  Support structure is comprised of easy to remove, melt-away wax for simple post-processing, eliminating hand scraping, high pressure water jets, caustic chemical baths, or special facility requirements.

The ProJet MJP 3600 provides a large net build volume (xyz) 11.75" (298 mm) x 7.3" (185 mm) x 8" (203 mm), exceptionally fast print speeds and high definition parts. There is a choice of materials and selectable print resolutions. It works with VisiJet materials in UV curable plastic, in a range of colors, translucency, and tensile strengths, as well as castable wax.

Methods 3D has installed the ProJet MJP 3600 within its multiple technology centers across the US to provide product demonstration, training, support, and development of customer solutions on this exceptional production printer incorporating the full range of available materials.

"We're excited to offer the ProJet 3600 that uses MultiJet Printing technologies to print durable precision plastic parts, along with the extensive line of 3D Systems Direct Metal Printers," said Mr. Benjamin Fisk, General Manager, Methods 3D, Inc. "Parts made with MultiJet Printers have a smooth finish, high durability, excellent material properties, and can achieve accuracies rivaling SLA (Stereolithography) for many applications."

In October 2015, Methods Machine Tools announced it entered into a partner agreement with 3D Systems, a provider of the most advanced and comprehensive 3D digital design and fabrication solutions available today, including 3D printers, print materials and cloud-sourced custom parts.
