ETG Introduces Affordable ‘best-in-class’ 3D Printing

Now available from the Engineering Technology Group (ETG) is the ProJet® MJP 2500 Series of additive manufacturing machines from 3D Systems. Designed from the ground up to deliver a productive, in-office 3D printing solution that improves and accelerates today’s engineering workflow, the ProJet MJP 2500 Series is part of 3D Systems MultiJet Printing (MJP) line that delivers simple, clean operation, easy post-processing, and at an affordable price.

Providing the highest feature fidelity in its class, the affordable-yet-powerful 2500 Series enables design professionals to create precision models, prototypes and injection-moulded-quality parts, without leaving the workplace. The 2500 Series now available from ETG, utilises 3D Systems’ revolutionary MJP EasyClean System, offering hands-off, chemical-free finishing without the need for waterlines or any special disposal considerations.

In conjunction with 3D Systems’ exclusive non-toxic melt-away wax supports, the EasyClean System delivers simple post-processing with no damage to delicate feature details, thus reducing the time and waste associated with reprinting broken parts. This allows developers to confidently test ideas faster and more frequently, shortening design cycles, lowering development costs and achieving better end products.

“We have been extremely impressed with the results from the ProJet MJP 2500,” said Haleigh Doremus, Rapid Prototyping Manager at Nike, a 3D Systems beta tester. “It complements our current technologies and processes and allows us to print complex geometries that were previously impossible on other printers in this class. The consistency of parts and hands-off post-processing it provides gives us time to accomplish more in a day, adding even more value to our team.”

Engineered to deliver detailed, true-to-CAD parts, the ProJet MJP 2500 Series features two models, the MJP 2500 and the MJP 2500 Plus. Each printer in the series is compatible with robust and versatile VisiJet® M2 materials in durable white and black plastic. These materials deliver parts with an exceptional surface finish that look and feel like injection-moulded plastic and enable rigorous testing and functional use at an affordable price. The ProJet MJP 2500 Plus offers additional material capability with rigid clear plastic as well as flexible elastomeric black and elastomeric natural, each newly developed for printing rubber-like parts that provide pliability, strength and full elastic recovery.

Ideal for functional prototyping, rapid tooling and design communication, the 2500 Series is capable of printing 790 DPI in z, or over half a billion droplets of material for every cubic inch printed. The series also includes 3D Systems’ 3DSPRINT™ software, enabling quick printability checks, file repair, build time and material estimation, optimal part positioning and print queue management, all from one integrated platform.
