3D Systems advances MJP capabilities

3D Systems has recently declared the ongoing evolution of its MultiJet Printing (MJP) family of 3D printers with the release of the new high-throughput ProJet® MJP 3600 Series. The company has also introduced performance-enhancing features for its multi-material ProJet MJP 5500X printer, as well as declared the availability of two advanced elastomeric materials.

The new ProJet MJP 3600 Series prints at up to twice the speed of the previous generation. With powerful data processing capabilities that support files up to 250% larger, the ProJet MJP 3600 brings enhanced productivity to a wide range of prototyping, casting and end-use part production needs. The ProJet MJP 3600 Series includes models for printing detailed wax patterns for jewellery casting and precise patterns for other lost wax foundry casting applications.

3D Systems has also introduced two elastomeric materials for its multi-material ProJet MJP 5500X, VisiJet® CE-BK elastomeric black and VisiJet CE-NT elastomeric natural. These breakthrough materials offer over 650% elongation properties, excellent tear resistance and complete elastic recovery. With the ability to dynamically alter the composition of rigid and flexible materials, the ProJet MJP 5500X is engineered to support complex applications that require varying mechanical properties throughout the part. 3D Systems new ProJet MJP 2500 Series is designed to enable a broader range of professionals to create precision parts without leaving their workplace. The ProJet MJP 2500, ProJet MJP 3600 and ProJet MJP 5500X was on display at International CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
