Zortrax Announces Inventure - New 3D Printer for Professionals in All Industries

Soluble Support and Heated Chamber Provide High-Quality in Entry Level Printer

WARSAW, Poland, May 27, 2015 --


Zortrax, a leading global manufacturer of 3D printers, today announced Zortrax Inventure (https://youtu.be/LTWWPGjkdik), a compact and precise 3D printer suitable for any office.

Features previously only found in the highest-quality 3D printers have been applied to Inventure, ensuring a streamlined, high caliber experience. Distinctive features, functionality and enhancements include:

* Soluble support allows users to print more complicated objects and movable models, because printed models do not require manual processing. Essentially, the material is removed in a special solution which dissolves any unnecessary parts within a few hours.
* A fixed printing temperature from a heated chamber guarantees high dimensional precision of printed models.
* A closed casing with a HEPA filter ensures safety of work.
* Double heads provide simultaneous printing from basic and support materials.
* Cartridges deliver easy removal or replacement of printing materials.
* An embedded display with a notification system allows the ability to control the printing process.
* The 130x130x130 working area allows the user to print the majority of typical 3D models without the necessity of dividing them into parts.

"Inventure stands out thanks to its price/quality ratio and its ease of use. It's our hope that Inventure's plug and print ability will allow more professionals to access and regularly use 3D print technology," said Rafal Tomasiak, Zortrax CEO and one of the printer's designers.

"3D print technology can be used wherever fast prototyping or production of a small number of copies of a given object is required. The most common users of 3D printers are engineers, designers and architects, but the list of users has been constantly expanding. We receive more and more inquiries from educational institutions as well as the medical and automotive industries," added Tomasiak.

To appeal to customers across varying industries, Zortrax focused on the devices' design, pulling several features from the award-winning M200 printer. As a result, the printers are not only easy to use but also have a distinctive exterior. Inventure was designed to suit any office space, e.g. architectural studios. The printer is compact in size, has a closed printing chamber and a sleek, clean look.

New printing material, Z-ULTRAT Plus, has been enhanced for Inventure printers. This thermoplastic substance is particularly resistant to damages and can be used for both industrial prototyping as well as printing final objects. The models made of this material are suitable for pre-production tests as their quality is close to the products made with injection mold technology.

Inventure printers are equipped with every element needed to start printing right after taking the device from the box and plugging it in. The package includes useful tools, a cartridge with Z-ULTRAT Plus and support material as well as instructions for downloading Z-SUITE software. This program helps users by facilitating preparation of 3D models for printing (e.g. by determining their size or position on the printer's platform) and, along with the printer and printing materials, constitutes a closed ecosystem to ensure the highest quality for precise printouts.

Zortrax's Inventure will be available in the US later this year.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
