JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
JEC Asia 2012 - With almost everyone exploring ways to minimize costs and maximize profitability, 3D printing technology offers a glimpse of a future based around a smaller, more agile productive capacity.
Objet’s advanced 3D printing systems and materials enable professionals to build prototypes that accurately simulate the true look, feel and function of an end-product, even complex assembled goods. Objet’s 3D printers are available in a range of form-factors, from cost-effective desktop machines ideal for entry-level professionals all the way to industrial-scale multi-material machines for front-line designers and top manufacturers.
The 3D printers feature high-resolution 3D printing quality, based on 16-micron super-thin layering, wide material versatility, office friendliness and ease of operation. The models produced on these 3D printers feature smooth surfaces and excellent fine-detail accuracy. Walls, for example, can be printed as thin as 0.6mm depending on geometry. Objet uses a raster process to produce photopolymer models.
This offers an important productivity advantage. Because the machines build in slices rather than point-by-point, several different material models can be created at once, in the time it takes other technologies to produce just one. This, in combination with high-speed mechanical movement, makes dramatic reductions in build times possible
