EnvisionTEC, a leading global manufacturer of desktop and full-production 3D printers and materials, has offered a groundbreaking performance enhancement to the Perfactory 3D printer that launched the company 15 years ago and is currently in its fourth generation.
Prior to this product enhancement, the P4 line of 3D printers has already offered the highest accuracy and best resolution in the vat photopolymerization market.
With the new custom LED system, the P4 line now comes standard with the most powerful and cost-efficient light source, too. The average cost per hour of the P4’s outgoing ultra-high-performance (UHP) lamp, which uses high-pressure mercury gas to emit light, was $2.90, with an estimated life of 500 hours. By contrast, the new LED system will cost an average of $0.50 per hour, lasting an estimated 10,000 hours.
