Additive Manufacturing

Felix Partners, IJsselstein, the Netherlands, has launched several additive manufacturing platforms for industrial production applications. The Pro 3 integrates seamlessly into industrial workflows, whether that is in an office, a workshop, laboratory, or factory environment. The 3D printer is designed to produce optimized print results repeatably. The L and XL platforms have been developed with greatly increased build volumes, up to 144 L (the Pro L can build parts up to 300 × 400 × 400 mm (11.8 × 15.75 × 15.75 in.), while the Pro XL has a build chamber of 600 × 400 × 600 mm or (23.62 × 15.75 × 23.62 in.).

Laser Scanning Sensor

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, North Kingstown, RI, launched its first blue laser scanning sensor for creating point clouds. The HP-L-5.8 is designed for companies who need a versatile, affordable, fixed-line laser sensor. The laser scanning sensor also takes point cloud measurements from dark or shiny surfaces. Designed to be rugged and compact, it protects the sensor from collisions and vibrations and is ideal for use in areas where accessibility is restricted as well as on smaller coordinate measuring machines.

3D Printer

Additive Manufacturing Technologies, Sheffield, UK, has released a new 3D printer to accommodate lower volume production runs. The PostPro3DColor incorporates the features of the original system, with added capability for uniformly coloring polymer 3D printed parts in a single step without the use of water and disposable waste streams. The cartridge system allows the selected color pigment to be delivered into the processing chamber as an atomized mist, which bonds directly to the polymer substrate as it is being smoothed to add the color to the part consistently. The results are permanent, and the color will not fade or wash away over time.
