Stratasys introduces SUP706

Stratasys Ltd., the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company has introduced a new soluble support material called SUP706 for PolyJet triple-jetting 3D printers. The new support material significantly reduces the time and manpower required to clean 3D printed models, enabling companies to efficiently scale-up to high volume production.

SUP706 automates post-processing of 3D printed parts with a simple two-step, soak-and-rinse process, giving users the ability to maximize productivity while achieving a low cost-per-part. High-production environments including service bureaus and internal prototyping shops will experience a faster and easier support material removal process. SUP706 is available as a software update on all Stratasys PolyJet Triple-Jetting 3D Printers and is compatible with all PolyJet materials, excluding hearing aid material.

Stratasys now also offers ULTEM 1010. Added to the Stratasys material portfolio in 2014, this high-performance FDM thermoplastic offers the best heat resistance, tensile strength and chemical resistance of any FDM thermoplastic. ULTEM 1010 resin is also bio-compatible per ISO-10993 and has food-contact certification of USP Class VI – food contact (NSF 51). ULTEM 1010 resin is compliant with FST regulation. Ideal for aerospace, automotive, food processing and medical device applications, ULTEM 1010 resin combines strength and thermal stability for advanced industrial tooling.
