Large-format 3D printing - Voxeljet VX4000

voxeljet unveils its 3D printing system VX4000 – a machine that is set to cause a stir among international experts. It enables objects to be produced from particulate material with dimensions of 4 x 2 x 1 metres.

Dr. Ingo Ederer, CEO of voxeljet technology, is delighted with the capabilities of the new machine. "With our new VX4000 we can generate moulds the size of a sports car, the limit being a volume of eight cubic metres. This presents users with undreamt-of possibilities. The enormous build space enables the rapid production of large individual moulds, but is also flexible enough to allow the cost-effective production of small batches."

The new system scores high on flexibility and speed. The machine operates at three times the build speed of voxeljet's standard printers, but with the same resolution and precision. Users benefit from significant time and cost savings. The very look of the machine – almost 20 metres long and of high-quality design – sends a signal that this is a system for tough industrial conditions. The system design with building platforms that are inserted alternately into the process station allows for continuous, round-the-clock operation.

"Adding the VX4000 to our range of models expands our product portfolio of standard and high-definition printers in a logical way. With a range that extends from the VX500 through the VX800 to the VX4000, we now cover build space lengths of 500 to 4,000 mm. This means that we have the right system in our portfolio for virtually any application and any client – from architectural office to automaker", says Dr. Ederer.

The VX4000 offers excellent features:

* Build space of 4000 x 2000 x 1000 mm
* Continuous operation with multiple building platforms
* Variable use of build space for individual application
* Effective and continuous operation through rugged design and high-quality components
* Fast and economical manufacturing of large components and batches

VX4000 at a glance:

The VX4000 is a large-format 3D printing system for producing any type of object from particle material. With the aid of voxeljet's well-proven 3D printing process, objects are automatically produced from 3D CAD data. Thin layers are applied repeatedly to a building platform in a buildup process. These layers are then bonded together with fluid binder according to the layer geometry.

The VX4000 system concept features a very large building volume of 4 x 2 x 1 metres, which is approximately eight times the volume of conventional systems. To improve performance, a particularly wide print head is used, which prints a layer in only two passes.

As a result, the system not only ensures the fast manufacture of individual, oversized objects, but also permits efficient small batch production. The system design with building platforms that are alternately inserted into the process station allows for continuous (24/7) operation. The machine thus has a robust design and is equipped with high-quality technology.
