Z Printer 3D Printers
Rapid Prototyping 3D Printer Models
Z Corporation offer a number of monochrome and color 3D printers within a range of 3D printers, rapid prototyping systems and portable 3D scanners. ZPrinter 3D printers are the fastest high-definition 3D printers available, several of which are able to product full color physical 3D models. ZPrinter printers quickly and economically turn product and building CAD designs into physical prototype color models, which speeds up the entire design process for your product.
ZPrinter 3D printers are based on inkjet technology so they are able to produce 3D printed models 5x-10x faster than all other technologies. This allows you to produce more models from the printer, speeding up product development times.
ZPrinter printers are able to output multicolor designs without the use of paint. Multiple print heads produce a large range of accurate and consistent colors in full 24-bit color, just like a standard 2D printer. A full color 3D prototype output from a ZPrinter gives the designer a better way ti evaluate the look, feel and style of the product.
As their printers are based on inkjet technology they are reliable and affordable, and work out to be one-fifth of the cost of other 3D printer technologies. To further save money and unused material can be recycled for production of the next model, thus eliminating waste.
Z Corporation provides a number of powder/binder/infiltrant systems to satisfy different customer requirements, the main one required for their 3D printers is called zp150. Their materials include high-performance composites for producing strong, high-definition parts. For additional flexibility within your design process, ZPrinter 3D printed models can be sanded, drilled, tapped, painted and electroplated.
3D Rapid Prototyping Systems
Z Corporation also produce a 3D rapid prototyping system, called ZBuilder Ultra, which is able to product 3D printed models that are accurate, high-resolution plastic prototypes. The ZBuilder rapid prototyping system is able to print high-end functional prototypes for a small fraction of the unit cost of traditional stereolithography machines. Rather than ink-jet technology the ZBuilder rapid prototyping machines build parts additively using a high-resolution Digital Light Processor (DLP) projector. This DLP projector solidifies a liquid photopolymer, which results in durable plastic parts that mimic injection molding techniques that are used in manufacturing industries. The ZBuilder Ultra rapid prototyping devices build at twice the speed of machines as they image an entire cross-section at once. ZBuilders allows your design team to examine designs for form, fit and function before the move to full-scale production. This efficient process eliminates costly modifications to production tooling; and ultimately shortens the time to market.
