Solidscape 3D printers are primarily used to produce "waxlike" patterns for lost-wax casting/investment casting and mold making applications.
The 3D printers require digital input from three-dimensional data files (STL, SLC) and create solid, three-dimensional parts through an additive layer-by-layer process. The patterns produced are extremely high resolution with vibrant details and outstanding surface finish.
The printers combine drop-on-demand (DoD) thermoplastic ink-jetting technology and high-precision milling of each layer with the company's proprietary graphical front-end software, 3Z®Works.
Solidscape's 3D wax printers utilize the company's proprietary printing technology, SCP® (Smooth Curvature Printing®), which enables its systems to deliver the highest precision and surface finish in the industry. Developed to enhance throughput performance up to 25% (depending upon model geometry) and deliver master patterns that stand alone in the industry . . . the true benchmark of quality.
Small and medium-size businesses reach a competitive edge by adopting 3D printing solutions. Thanks to the precision and materials castability, companies can leverage on automated manufacturing systems otherwise unaffordable and hard to integrate.
The goal is to change the way parts are made with a simple click . . . one industry at a time.
“The quality of parts we can create using the Solidscape 3D printer are beyond what we could previously achieve with other AM systems, CNC machining and even skilled handwork.” Christian Müller CEO, Horbach, GmbH
