Based on the proven Neo800, the compact Neo450 series from UK-based RPS has a 450 × 450 × 400 mm platform and builds prototypes, rapid tooling, and master patterns with optimal surface quality, accuracy and detail. Designed for greater flexibility and versatility, the Neo450 series is available in two models with different performance and functionality depending on customer needs – the Neo450e and the Neo450s.
The new Neo450e is an affordable industrial-grade 3D printer producing small to medium parts with consistent accuracy and repeatability. It was designed for non-stop printing of industrial production parts.
The Neo450s offers performance and versatility along with all the benefits of Neo450e. Producing superior quality parts, the Neo450s is up to 40% faster than the Neo450s and offers standard (SD) and high definition (HD) build modes. Supplied with a more powerful laser, 3 axis dynamic scanning system and advanced software algorithms, the Neo450s can quickly print SD or HD parts over the entire work area, all with outstanding accuracy and detail.
As the Neo450s offers SD and HD parts from one machine, it reduces the need to operate multiple SL systems with different functions. This in turn results in considerable savings in overheads and service costs.
David Storey, Director of RPS, said: “The Neo is a technically advanced product packed with great benefits and features, and significantly raises the bar and expectations within the field of SL printing. We developed the Neo 3D printer to drive forward and transform the expectations of stereolithography. Thankfully, gone are the days of hand-finishing poor quality parts from fragile materials. Neo printed parts rival both the quality and accuracy of injection molded parts directly from the printer.”
“With the Neo450 series, we wanted to design and develop a reliable, versatile machine that offered customers more functionality – Storey added. With the Neo450e, customers can produce complex industrial-grade quality parts from an affordable 3D printer. With the Neo450s, customers can now quickly produce small to medium parts in SD or build intricate HD parts over the entire build area.”
“Supporting our customers is what RPS was founded upon, and more now than ever, customers are looking for solutions to grow their business and save costs. We are excited to offer the Neo450 series as a 3D printing solution that can help not only reduce costs but also produce outstanding parts for their application”.
