Stratasys Launches Large-Scale Objet1000 Plus

Production system can handle both prototypes and manufacturing tools simultaneously.




Stratasys has introduced the industrial scale Objet1000 Plus 3D Production System, a multi-material 3D printer offering an extra-large print size and accelerated speeds for manufacturing applications including aerospace, automotive, medical devices, and consumer products, as well as those required by service bureaus and universities.

The Objet1000 Plus mixes materials and part sizes while maintaining ultra-fine precision, according to Stratasys. Its extra-large build envelope (39 x 31 x 19 in.) features an optimized print block movement that accelerates print speeds up to 40% faster than its predecessor.

Users can choose from more than 100 Stratasys materials including the polypropylene-like Endur. It can produce tough parts with smooth surface finishes in high-speed mode while also using Endur Digital Materials, which combine two resins in a single material for a wider range of material properties, the company reports.

The workflow is identical to smaller PolyJet 3D printing systems, and is designed for long periods of unattended operation.

Also new is the Xtend 500 Fortus Plus, a high-volume filament package for Fortus 3D Production Systems. Each Xtend 500 box contains 500 cubic in. of FDM thermoplastic material, When two material boxes are loaded into a Fortus 3D Production System, users can expect up to 400 hours of unattended run time and up to 1000 cubic of material use, according to Stratasys.
