3D printer company EnvisionTEC has launched the industry’s first DLP 3D printer with a true 4K projector. The Perfactory P4K, which is being showcased at Formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, also uses artificial intelligence.
EnvisionTEC believes the new projector’s resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels puts the Perfactory P4K in a class above other DLP 3D printers. Importantly, the printer will also be compatible with the company’s existing range of materials. Depending on which material is used, the printer will offer dynamic Z-axis voxel resolution of 25 – 150 µm.
Another unique selling point of the new Perfactory range is its use of artificial intelligence, which is deployed in the pixel modulation process. According to EnvisionTEC, the use of AI helps to deliver “the highest accuracy 3D printed parts with ultra-smooth surface finish.”
“The P4K is the highest resolution advanced DLP printer with the largest build envelope and deploys artificial intelligence in pixel modulation to deliver the highest accuracy parts with the smoothest available surface finish in the 3D printing space,” said EnvisionTEC CEO Al Siblani. “This will deliver the next level of production-grade 3D printing solutions.”
The EnvisionTEC Perfactory P4K will come in three versions:
- P4K 62: 62 µm resolution and a build envelope of 160 x 100 x 220 mm
- P4K 75: 75µm resolution and a build envelope of 192 x 120 x 220 mm
- P4K 90: 90 µm resolution and a build envelope of 233 x 141.5 x 220 mm
Founded in 2002, EnvisionTEC offers a variety of 3D printer configurations based on six distinct technologies that build objects from digital design files. Its printers are used in the medical, professional and industrial markets.
EnvisionTEC is currently showcasing its new line of Perfactory P4K 3D printers at Formnext 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany.
Earlier this year, the company brought its new Vector 3SP 3D printing system to the Hannover fair, also in Germany.
