EnvisionTEC, a leading global manufacturer of desktop and full-production 3D printers and materials, has announced a cost-saving, disposable material tray for its premium desktop 3D printers at JCK Las Vegas, the jewelry industry’s premier trade show.
The new M-Type tray, which was developed and tested in EnvisionTEC’s R&D facility in Gladbeck, Germany, will be offered as an optional replacement for the current Pre-Stretched Assembly (PSA) tray system in the Micro and Vida lines of 3D printers.
The M-Type features optical glass coated in a film that is similar to a Mylar-type film and allows for easy separation of each exposure layer during the 3D printing build. The outer perimeter of the tray is a flexible silicone.
The new M-Type tray will be available in North America this summer. Unlike the PSA, which has to be professionally replaced by EnvisionTEC, the new M-Type is disposable.
Current Micro and Vida users can inquire about a new M-Type at EnvisionTEC.com/MType.
