Stereolithography (SL) machine manufacturer, DWS, is to show its growing range of professional-grade 3D printers and materials, including its first-ever fully automated high-speed SL manufacturing cell, at CES 2018.
DWS’s XCELL 3D systems are designed to quickly offer a seamless push-button solution from file, to printing and post-processing. Built on a new patented Tilted Stereolithography (TSLA) printing process, this single manufacturing cell promises speed and precision ideal for most dental and jewellery applications.
The company will also be showcasing its expanded professional-grade desktop offering including three new models, XFAB 2000, XFAB 2500 and XFAB 3500, based on its successful professional-grade XFAB desktop platform.
n addition, DWS will be bringing its XPRO S industrial-grade large-format 3D printer featuring a 300 x 300 x 300mm build platform and O30X quad-laser system. Starting at $110,000, DWS says the XPRO S delivers its most cost-effective precision parts to date, including life size models, functional prototypes and automotive parts. The system can be used with a range of DWS Materials such as digital ABS-like, polypropylene-like and rubber-like, nano-ceramics fillers added, investment casting and silicone moulding.
“With its expanded automotive and 3D printing focus, CES 2018 is the best venue for us to showcase our most advanced professional additive manufacturing systems,” said DWS general manager Maurizio Costabeber. “For over two decades, we have been pioneering and disrupting segments of the additive manufacturing industry with our innovative stereolithography systems and materials. We are taking bold steps to make additive manufacturing 4.0 real and affordable to automotive, aerospace and durable goods users through our ground-breaking new products and our geographic expansion into North America.”
DWS has been ramping up its expansion into North America in recent months. The company recently opened a Customer Experience Center in California, located at XponentialWorks, founded by former 3D Systems’ CEO, Avi Reichental. DWS has also invested in a state-of-the-art facility to help grow its presence throughout North America. DWS also recently joined Techniplas’ open innovation program to bolster its automotive domain expertise.
DWS will be at CES in Las Vegas, on 8-12th January on booth #8108.
