- Vista takes inkjet 3D printing from the prototype shop to the factory floor
Inkbit, an additive manufacturing company located in Massachusetts, announced that the its Vista production additive manufacturing system, powered by the proprietary VCJ technology, is now operational at the Saint-Gobain Research Cross-Business R&D Center, a multidisciplinary research site developing processes and products for global businesses across numerous industries.
Inkbit’s proprietary VCJ technology, the Vista system enables volume production of end-use polymer parts, with a combination of high throughput, low labour post-processing, and production-grade materials.
Inkbit’s VCJ Technology
Inkbit has developed its proprietary Vision Controlled Jetting technology which is a contactless process that enables the use of high-performance polymers – the first 3D printer to provide closed-loop feedback control of the print process.
Inkbit uses a proprietary 3D scanning system to generate a topographical map of each layer after deposition. Scan data from each layer are used in conjunction with the source part geometry to generate the next layer. Dynamic, real-time layer generation ensures that parts are built quickly and accurately every time.
“We are pleased to announce that our first Vista platform system is operational at Saint-Gobain’s Research Center in Northborough, MA. This is an important milestone for Inkbit: an idea conceived in an academic laboratory at MIT is now a commercial manufacturing system operating outside our building. We are thrilled to be working with Saint-Gobain at exploring novel applications of our technology.”– Davide Marini, Co-founder and CEO, Inkbit
The Inkbit Vista system is available now. Further information, including full system specifications and the material data sheet, is available on the Inkbit website.
