EnvisionTEC and Adaptive3D announced they have executed a materials distribution agreement to pair ToughRubber photoresins with Xtreme 8K digital light processing (DLP) printers.
The Xtreme 8K 3d printer is optimized for area-wide photopolymer printing and is the largest build area production-grade DLP 3D printer in the world. EnvisionTEC has designed and built these large format top-down 3D printers with the size, resolution and power density needed to rapidly photocure giant micro-architected elastomers. Coupled with Adaptive3D’s photoelastomer resins, businesses can produce tough, durable parts quickly and in volume with good surface quality, robust thermomechanical properties and high part accuracy.
Adaptive3D sells photopolymer resins to enable additive manufacturing of tough, strain-tolerant, tear-resistant, biocompatible rubbers, such as its flagship resin product, Elastic ToughRubber 90: a tough, printable elastomer for all seasons. Adaptive3D printable photoresins are optimized for high-throughput manufacturing of functional complex 3D plastic and rubber parts in consumer, healthcare, industrial, transportation and oil and gas markets.
