At Formnext 2022, XYZprinting, a leader in additive manufacturing and 3D printing solutions, will showcase its latest devices with Open Platform Fast Cycle Sintering (OPFCS) (November 15-18). This, the company believes, is the future of 3D printing as it observes a growing demand for SLS technology.
The company envisions a future of open-platform-based selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printing solutions that can use powder from any material supplier as well as reuse end-of-life powder, maximising material compatibility while drastically reducing waste.
As a significant step toward this vision, the company’s OPFCS solutions on display at Formnext, such as MfgPro236 xS, allow for the use of mostly recycled materials from any supplier.
“While XYZprinting is known for offering the most competitive and balanced SLS solutions, this new capability to reuse end-of-life powder originally produced by any supplier makes us leaders in cost effectiveness in addition to energy efficiency.”– Fernando Hernandez, EMEA Managing Director of XYZprinting
Sustainability in 3D printing
Formnext 2022 takes place against the backdrop of a growing global focus on environmental protection, and XYZprinting embraces sustainability in the form of increased product energy efficiency through increased size and speed. Furthermore, its open platform systems adhere to the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle.
SLS 3D printers, in particular, provide numerous manufacturing advantages, but one common disadvantage is waste: service bureaus with high capacity typically face significant disposal costs. XYZprinting addresses this first by offering high-performance systems with larger build volumes and lower waste. Second, its open platform systems allow manufacturers to use recycled powder in addition to 20-30% fresh powder and to re-use powder from any supplier.
The da Vinci Pro EVO–evolutional desktop 3D printer
XYZprinting’s newly launched da Vinci Pro EVO 3D printer, also on display at Formnext 2022, is a step forward from the popular veteran da Vinci Pro and the next evolution in desktop 3D printing. It provides excellent performance and print quality and can be used with a variety of materials, including TPU, PC, Nylon, and Carbon Fiber, making it ideal for a wide range of professional applications.
Future of 3D Printing – Demand for SLS
With increased energy efficiency and cost effectiveness, more European SMEs are turning to XYZprinting SLS systems to power their manufacturing. H&U Scheffler GmbH, a German manufacturer of high-quality glasses and sunglasses, recently began successfully utilizing one of XYZprinting’s highly scalable solutions to transition from outsourcing to in-house printing, reducing production costs and time while increasing flexibility.
In another industry, TEKEVER, a leading European provider of drone-based maritime surveillance, has begun using a MfgPro230 xS 3D printer to effectively print top-quality drone parts that meet the company’s exacting standards for strength, impact resistance, and rigidity.
In addition to reducing waste and increasing compatibility, MfgPro236 xS’s larger build volume is ideal for increasing capacity for expedited jobs. It has fast print speeds of up to 22 mm per hour, a 22-hour cycle, and only 2 hours for cooling, allowing it to print parts quickly while maintaining high precision and quality.
