EnvisionTEC and Adaptive3D announced a materials distribution agreement to pair ToughRubber photoresins with Xtreme 8K digital light processing (DLP) printers.
Adaptive3D's tough photoelastomers printed on Xtreme 8K printers will expedite the adoption of additively manufactured solutions for functional end-use elastomeric parts and products. EnvisionTEC's Xtreme 8K is optimized for area-wide photopolymer printing and is the largest build area production-grade DLP 3D printer in the world.
Long a technical and market pioneer in additive manufacturing, EnvisionTEC has designed and built these large format top-down 3D printers with the size, resolution and power density needed to rapidly photocure giant micro-architected elastomers.
Coupled with Adaptive3D's photoelastomer resins, businesses can produce tough, durable parts quickly and in volume with premium surface quality, robust thermomechanical properties and high part accuracy.
Adaptive3D sells photopolymer resins to enable additive manufacturing of tough, strain-tolerant, tear-resistant, biocompatible rubbers, such as its flagship resin product, Elastic ToughRubber 90: a tough, printable elastomer for all seasons. Adaptive3D printable photoresins are optimized for high-throughput manufacturing of functional complex 3D plastic and rubber parts in consumer, healthcare, industrial, transportation and oil and gas markets.
