Rock Hill, South Carolina -- 3D Systems Corp. has launched a new ProJet 7000 production 3D printer, which it says "prints the finest feature details resulting in the most accurate prototypes, parts and master patterns for urethane and investment casting applications."
The large-capacity printer comes with a wide range of VisiJet functional materials including tough, flexible, black, clear, e-stone and high temperature materials, allowing users to switch easily to the right print material for any production application.
3D Systems says the ProJet 7000 combines "push-button simplicity with SLA printability to deliver the highest quality, most accurate parts and patterns available."
Its large build volume of 15x15x10 in (380x380x250 mm) and lightning-fast build speed provides up to four times the production capacity of other printers in its class. The ProJet 7000 will be on display 23-24 May, at RAPID 2012 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia, in booth No 120.
The ProJet 7000 production printer comes in 3 models: the SD for affordable high definition parts, the HD for ultra-high-definition precision-part manufacturing and the MP for dental and medical manufacturing applications.
"The powerful combination of push-button simplicity and SLA printability makes the ProJet 7000 value very compelling to our professional and production users," said Buddy Byrum, vice president Product & Channel Management for 3D Systems, in a company statement.
"Customers asked us for larger and more part printing capacity and our ProJet 7000 delivers. Its expanded print format delivers both larger models and more parts in a single print for enhanced overall productivity."
