Industrial Plastic Fabrications Ltd. (IPFL), specialists in plastic machining, fabrication, and 3D printing, has begun using Stratasys’ latest J850 multi-material Polyjet printer. With the J850’s latest advancements, the machine will support the company’s collection of 3D printing technologies and expand on its current polyjet capabilities.

The Stratasys J850 is the fastest printer in the American-Israeli manufacturer’s J-series, capable of producing highly accurate prototypes and tooling from a variety of materials.

IPFL was an early 3D printing adopter. Since 2003, they have established a reputation as a pioneer in rapid prototyping, adapting to technological shifts in resin, powder, and filament-based methods.

IPFL’s most recent multi-material polyjet printer addition also includes a new super high-speed mode, which allows the printer to use seven materials at once, providing five times the number of design iterations. With consistently strong, flexible, and transparent offerings in complex 3D printed parts, this technology has advanced IPFL’s customer service.

One of the most precise additive manufacturing technologies is Polyjet’s printing process, which involves the distribution of resin droplets that harden under ultraviolet light. The J850 features 14 micron horizontal build layers on a large build envelope of 495 x 395 x 195 mm.

In addition, the printer welcomes a variety of new materials, including VeroVivid rigid photopolymers, VeroUltraClear glass-like polymers, and ABS-Like: a temperature resistant polymer that is resistant to shrinkage. IPFL now offers these materials in over 600,000 colour variations, backed by Pantone validation.

“With the Stratasys J850 polyjet, we can further enhance our quality of parts for customer prototyping and production requirements. IPFL offers smooth and accurate parts in a short space of time, and is always committed to servicing its dedicated sectors. Moving forward, the J850 is a significant addition to our production of medical devices and will enhance our suite of 3D printing capabilities.”

– Adam Bloomfield, Director, IPFL

IPFL has consistently provided high-quality plastic components for the industrial, medical, transportation, aero, consumer, defence, and security sectors for over 50 years. The company has used polyjet to create high precision prototypes with complex geometry and intricate detail since a long time now. Its materials are medically approved and soluble, resulting in pristine parts that can be used to mimic over-moulded products. With new integrated material bays, the J850 is expected to reduce IPFL’s process downtime from material changeovers, as well as the need for multiple print processes due to the material variety on offer.
