voxeljet conquers North America

06/22/2010

With its innovative 3D printing technology for easy and fast manufacturing of high-quality plastic components, voxeljet AG has made a name for itself among small batch and prototype manufacturers throughout Europe. The high-tech company now has a world premiere to celebrate. For the first time, the Augsburg-based voxeljet has sold a 3D printing system in the United States.

"This premiere," says voxeljet CEO Dr. Ingo Ederer, "is of great strategic importance for our company. Once our revolutionary 3D technology enters new markets, it is only a matter of time before its significant advantages attract other users." The overall system delivered to the United States consist of the VX800 3D high-performance printer, a VRS800 powder preparation system, a VUP800 unpacking station and a VCL1400 finishing cabin.

The buyer is voxeljet's U.S. distributor, ProMetal, which manufactures components for Express Pattern on the complete sytem. According to Express Pattern, the innovative manufacturing method, in which a 3D printer automatically generates plastic parts without tools on the basis of CAD data, offers significant competitive advantages, which is why they have made ProMetal their exclusive supplier.

The VX800 earns high marks through its high-performance printing technology as well as the outstanding surface quality of the parts and an impressive building speed. The build space, which is generously dimensioned at 190 litres, also enables larger parts to be produced. Unique to the system is its use of industrial plastics as the base material. Thanks to these advantages, the VX800 will become the top choice for fast and economical prototype and small batch production in the United States as well.
