California-based 3D printer manufacturer Nexa3D offers industrial, resin 3D solutions. And according to some, what makes the company’s solutions unique is their ability to print high quality parts with high printing speed. For those who wonder, Nexa3D does not only offer 3D printers. In fact, right now, the brand is working with many suppliers to develop a wide range of materials. At CES 2019, the company had introduced the NXE 400, a machine based on the SLA process.
Features of the NXE 400
The NXE 400, which is a resin 3D printer for professionals, offers a print volume of 275 x 155 x 400 mm or 10.8 x 6.1 x 15.7 inch, meaning it has 16L build volume, quite high for a printer that uses photopolymerization. Moreover, thanks to the manufacturer’s proprietary LSPc (Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing) process, which is similar to SLA, the NXE 400 is said to be capable of a printing speed of 600 mm per hour. Unsurprisingly, this speed has become one of the reasons why the 3D printer is now prized by many different manufacturers.
When it comes to applications, the printer allows companies to invest in industrial 3D printing with a number of applications. For example, Nexa3D highights that the NXE 400 could be used for all industrial, R&D and manufacturing requirements. Additionally, the printer is compatible with a wide range of materials, including photopolymers. Furthermore, the NXE 400 could be interesting for many because it is easy to upgrade due to its modular design and interchangeable parts, preventing obsolescence considering the speed at which 3D printing technologies develop. Using the machine, it is possible to print hundreds of parts at a time and thus quickly explore many different design options available, ideal for those who are still testing. When it comes to connection, the printer benefits from full network connectivity, Ethernet and wifi, and works with the manufacturer’s proprietary software, called NexaX.
