RIZE, Inc., a next-generation additive manufacturing company dedicated to bringing industrial 3D printing to all users, announced the RIZE 2XC, a professional desktop composite 3D printer that represents the first deliverable of the RIZIUM Alliance, a collaboration between key industry partners and RIZE to drive greater safety and sustainability in 3D printing.
This sub-$5K category 3D printer, RIZE 2XC uses a dual-extrusion system from Sindoh Co., Ltd. , a multi-function printer and 3D printer manufacturer based in South Korea, which has been redesigned to run RIZE’s RIZIUM’s portfolio of engineering-grade materials that are zero emissions, recyclable, moisture-resistant and require minimal post-processing.
RIZE 2XC is the first deliverable of the RIZIUM Alliance, where a leading 3D printing hardware partner – Sindoh – applies RIZE’s materials innovation to their platforms, enabling customers in a variety of sectors to choose safety and sustainability at any price-point. RIZIUM materials are engineered for safety and user health by avoiding the airborne release of chemicals common in other filament based 3D printers.
The RIZE 2XC provides an affordable way to create strong, durable and fully functional components, safely and sustainably, with an exceptional time to part. Each of two independent extruders are specifically designed for hardened materials and composite filaments. One extruder runs RIZE’s award-winning portfolio of RIZIUM composites and polymers, which are moisture- and chemically resistant, and easily sanitized with soap and water. The other extruder runs RIZIUM Support, a breakthrough in support removal material technology specifically designed by RIZE for filament based extrusion systems, which ensures effortless post processing without requiring additional efforts or chemicals.
The RIZE 2XC expands RIZE’s current portfolio of printers, which includes the RIZE ONE monochrome multi-material desktop 3D printer, and the XRIZE full-color, multi-material desktop 3D printer. RIZE One is the world’s first and only UL 2904 GREENGUARD certified 3D printer for safety and low emissions.
As post-pandemic business demands greater supply chain flexibility, the RIZE 2XC enables organizations to optimize safety and productivity. Users can locate RIZE 2XC printers adaptively at home, in offices or anywhere – without concern for the release of airborne volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are common in other 3D printing materials and proven to be harmful. Users can work with exceptional efficiency and safety, building new adaptive workflows with processes that keep teams safe and avoid the transmission of germs.
Engineered from home offices entirely during the COVID-19 pandemic when most office locations were closed worldwide, RIZE 2XC is a testimony to the safety principles embodied in RIZE’s solutions – principles that are especially relevant today as organizations reinvent workflows for a return to office locations, or potential return back home.
The RIZE 2XC has an introductory price of $3,995 in the US market and €3,995 in Europe, and is available on June 30, 2020 from RIZE’s network of channel partners.
