EnvisionTEC Launches Perfactory Micro Advantage 3D Printer for Jewelry and New Epic Material
Dearborn, Michigan — EnvisionTEC, a leading manufacturer of proprietary 3D rapid manufacturing solutions, announced the launch of their new Perfactory® Micro Advantage 3D printer today at both the Atlanta Jewelry Show in Atlanta and the MJSA Show in New York.
EnvisionTEC’s newest entry into their Micro family of 3D printers, the Perfactory® Micro Advantage, provides an attractive entry-level solution for jewelry designers and retailers. It boasts a large build envelope of 60 x 45 x 100 mm, while maintaining an XY resolution of 50 microns and a Z resolution that is adjustable from 25 to 100 microns depending on the material used. This size makes the Micro Advantage an ideal companion to the original Micro for jewelry, allowing for wider design capabilities through the printing of larger pieces such as bangles and belt buckles. Build speeds of up to 10 mm per hour for the full envelope are also possible depending on the material used. The Micro family of 3D printers are also automatic and self-calibrating.
EnvisionTEC has also announced the newest casting material in EnvisionTEC’s wide range of solution-specific materials, Epic. Epic offers the crispness of EnvisionTEC’s PIC materials with the castability of its EC-500 materials in a new formulation that delivers a desirable combination of price, performance, and reliability. A wax-based material, Epic is the result of years of research based on collaboration with top casting houses around the world and is available in both the original formula for use with the Perfactory® Mini and Perfactory® Mini XL 3D printers and also as Epic M, for use with the Perfactory® Micro and Perfactory® Micro Advantage 3D printers.
