Polyjet

PolyJet printing offers very high precision models and prototypes, with outstanding surface features and fine detail.

Like your inkjet printer that fires ink, the Objet’s print head literally rains down liquid plastic onto the build tray. High power UV lamps on the sides of the print head instantly cure the dispensed plastic.

Objet 3D-printing technology is uniquely capable of creating over 90 ‘digital materials’ and offers the widest range of material options in the industry. Flexible parts  can be printed using PolyJet technology in durometer Shore A 25 up to Shore A 90.  It is possible to print both rigid and flexible features in one part, as in the form of an overmolded part.

Benefits of Polyjet

Can print base material and overmolds simultaniously

Functional prototypes with complex features

Wide range of material properties

Multi color prints

Accuracy on par with rapid prototypes

Zero draft / small undercuts not a problem

Jigs and fixture printing

Ridged or flexible parts depending on material

Polyjet Materials

VeroWhite Plus

Rigid Opaque photopolymers provide excellent detail visualization. 3D print smooth, attractive prototypes to test the fit, form and function of static parts, moving components or complex assemblies. You can also produce accurate jigs, fixtures and manufacturing tooling.

Digital ABS (RGD5160-DM)

Digital ABS (fabricated inside the 3D printer from RGD515 and RGD535) is designed to simulate standard ABS plastics by combining high-temperature resistance with toughness. Digital ABS2 delivers those properties plus superior rigidity and toughness in walls thinner than 1.2 mm (.047 in.). Both materials are suitable for parts that require PolyJet technology’s highest possible impact resistance and shock absorption.

Polyjet Process

Software calibrates the placement of the photopolymers and support material. Material is then emitted via droplets and UV cured in layers. Supports are emitted where needed in a gel-like material. Once finished, supports can be removed by water or hand and parts need no further processing.
