Xaar’s printheads have again been selected by industrial 3D printing manufacturer dp polar GmbH to power the latest addition to their range, the AMpolar® i1, which is to be unveiled at this year’s Formnext Show in Frankfurt, on 16-19th November.
The new compact AMpolar® i1 will be on display in Hall 12.1, stand E39 and visitors will be able to see how dp polar’s patented Additive Mass Manufacturing process uses Xaar 1003 printheads to jet parts at volume and deliver 3D printing on a truly industrial scale.
dp polar designs, develops and delivers industrial 3D printing systems and solutions for the automotive, aerospace, mechanical engineering, and consumer industries, and has worked with Xaar in the use of its printheads over a number of years.
The AMpolar® i1 harnesses dp polar’s patented, highly productive single- pass printing process, enabling build volumes of up to 240 litres across its innovative continuously rotating print platform, with a build area of just under one square meter (10.3ft2). Layers of between 4-25µm can be put down, achieving resolutions of up to 720 x 720 x 5.000dpi.
This combination of scalability, productivity and agility achieves an output that traditionally would have required multiple conventional 3D machines, and significantly more capital investment.
The AMpolar® i1 utilises the Xaar 1003, part of Xaar’s extensive printhead portfolio, which is proving invaluable in the industrialisation of 3D printing. The combination of speed, reliability, and capacity to jet a variety of fluids at increasingly high viscosities, enables jetting of fluids up to 100 centipoises (cP) in a single pass. Xaar’s Ultra High Viscosity Technology is key to realising this capability, opening access to an exciting range of new applications.
Florian Loebermann, dp polar’s Managing Director said; “The AMpolar® i1 delivers all the production benefits of the AMpolar® i2, but at a scale and in a format that facilitates businesses in their early stages of exploring what is possible in mass production 3D printing.
“Xaar’s printheads have proved invaluable in unlocking the full potential of our systems, and the openness of the Xaar team to support our innovations is helping to establish 3D printing and Additive Mass Manufacturing as a practical reality in the volume production of parts for many industries.”
Gareth Neal, Xaar’s Customer Applications Manager, Advanced Applications, Technologies & Fluids added; “The innovative and agile AMpolar® i1, firmly establishes the use of resin jetting as a truly practical and commercially viable manufacturing process.
“With Xaar’s range of printheads including our unique Ultra High Viscosity Technology providing the speed, flexibility and reliability demanded, functional inkjet applications have never been more accessible, affordable or productive.”
Visitors to Formnext are invited to visit the dp polar stand in Hall 12.1, E39.
Together with our partners and customers, Xaar has been transforming the world of inkjet technology for 30 years – and we’re just getting started.
With a new leadership team, new technology and new products, we have an exciting roadmap for the future – that will help our partners unleash the true power of inkjet printing and open up a world of opportunities for their business.
We believe true innovation comes from collaboration, which is why all our teams work together in Cambridgeshire where industrial inkjet was born. Collaboration is at the core of our global partnerships too - whether we’re helping customers enhance their uptime or create production efficiencies from high-speed digitisation - we’re always innovating together.
We know that inkjet technology can not only maximise the efficiency of our partners’ businesses but help them evolve too. That’s why we go on a journey with our customers - offering expert insights and technical support every step of the way. Just like our printheads, Xaar’s partnerships are built to last.
Welcome to a whole new Xaar.
