Voxeljet AG, one of the leading providers of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand parts services to industrial and commercial customers announced in an official release that it will be presenting, for the first time – VJET X, a new technology for additive mass manufacturing.

The new system will be presented to the public at GIFA show in Germany, which is scheduled to take place from 25 to 29 June 2019 in Duesseldorf, Germany. GIFA is the world’s leading trade fair for casting technology.

VJET X for Automotive Serial Production

  • Integrated into conventional casting lines, VJET X printers are believed to be the most powerful additive manufacturing technology for the cost-efficient serial-production of complex sand cores for the casting of metal components.
  • VJET X printers are 10x faster than previous models, which results in a layering speed of less than 5 seconds.
  • Inorganic binder system for zero emissions during core printing, storage and when using the sand cores in the casting process.
  • Integrated into fully automated handling systems for pre- and postprocesses like loading and unloading of the 3D printers; cleaning of the printed parts via robotic systems; transport of sand cores to casting lines.

At the heart of VJET X is a new process unit that makes additive mass manufacturing possible. It is a combination of multiple printing and recoating units that move with unparalleled speed (layer time below five seconds). It is believed to be the most advanced piece of technology in the additive manufacturing industry.

The new technology, to be first commercialized with a premium German car manufacturer and integrated into conventional casting lines, can, for example, be used in the additive mass manufacturing of complex water jacket cores in metal casting applications. Water jacket cores are used for the precise temperature management in not only internal combustion engines but also electric motors, inverters and battery systems. Efficient temperature management improves overall vehicle performance.

Together with its industrial partners, voxeljet will present the new VJET X and VX1000-S printers at the GIFA show from 25 to 29 June 2019 in Duesseldorf (Germany).
