New Stratasys Triple-Jetting 3D Printers
Once again Stratasys is giving designers and manufacturers more options to shape the way things are made with the introduction of its new Objet500 Connex1 and Objet500 Connex2 Multi-material 3D Printers. Debuting this week at IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show) in Chicago, the new 3D printers combine multiple materials and high throughput for prototyping and production tooling using Stratasys’ unique triple-jetting technology.
More About the Objet500 Connex1 and 2
The Objet500 Connex1 3D Printer by Stratasys comes equipped with a large build envelope and can produce parts from three diverse materials in a single production run. This allows users to create assemblies with components formed from three different materials, or it can produce components that contain both rigid and flexible materials, such as rubber-like Tango and rigid Vero material.
The Objet500 Connex2 Multi-material 3D Printer enables users to combine transparency, durability and flexibility in one 3D printed part. Combining all the features of the Objet500 Connex1, the Objet500 Connex2 also offers the ability to combine droplets from two base materials to produce new materials or “Digital Materials.” Digital ABS, a digital material combination, demonstrates the enormous benefits for manufacturers. It is the most durable material available forthe Stratasys PolyJet process and is often used to produce molds, cores and cavities for short-run injection molding.
