A first look at voxeljet’s upcoming VX1000 HSS giant 3D printer

There is no denying that large-format sand and polymer binder jetting 3D printer manufacturer voxeljet has not had an easy time fully exploiting it’s hardware’s market potential. The company is too large to be as streamlined as a startup and not large enough to move the marketing muscle of the HP’s and EOS’s of the polymer AM world. And not Silicon Valley enough to move investors as Carbon does. The new VX1000 HSS could change all this, giving voxeljet a real and significant technological advantage over the competition: no one else has yet built a high-resolution polymer system capable of printing this much and this fast.

The VX1000 HSS is the first of its kind. It is a high-performance 3D printing system for additive manufacturing of polymers. Designed for continuous use in industrial production. Automatable and highly productive, the VX1000 HSS is an economically viable alternative to conventional plastic injection molding.

voxeljet’s VX1000 HSS is going to be the largest high-speed 3D printer on the market

Voxeljet’s high speed sintering (HSS) process is broadly comparable to HP’s multiJet fusion MJF and can produce plastic parts with mechanical properties comparable to laser sintering and injection molding. The key advantages are the speed and scalability of the process, the variety of possible materials, and – as for most polymer PBF processes – the elimination of support structures. 

In addition, voxeljet is supporting materials such as nylon, TPU and PP while also making the HSS 3D printers available with an open materials system which means customers can individually adjust the process parameters to their own materials. 

It’s going to be big and it’s going to be fast. Will it be enough?

  1. Hallo Davide, my friend !
    Your clip refers….
    https://www.3dprintingmedia.network/a-first-look-at-voxeljets-upcoming-vx1000-hss-giant-3d-printer/

    Look at 1:12 / 2:14

    That is 3.5 min per shoe…..
    The Cheetah takes 45 min per shoe, or 13 Cheetahs together takes 3.5 min per shoe……

    The price of the Voxeljet is $ 250 000
    The price of 13 Cheetahs is 13 times $13300 or, $ 172 900

    The price of the proprietary Voxeljet material is ?
    The price of standard Injection moulding granules is a lot cheaper ?

    Your thoughts , please.
