Original Press Release:
Methods 3D Installs 3D Systems' New Projet MJP 3600 High Precision/Throughput 3D Printers in Technical Centers Across the US.
SUDBURY, MA. U.S.A. – Methods 3D, Inc., a newly formed subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools, Inc. (www.methodsmachine.com), a leading supplier of innovative precision machine tools, 3D printing technology, automation and accessories, announced the addition of the new high-throughput ProJet® MJP 3600 to its growing line of 3D printers and direct metal 3D printers from 3D Systems (www.3dsystems.com).
The ProJet MJP 3600 is designed for professional product prototyping and manufacturing across numerous industries. The MultiJet Printing technology produces high definition parts, outperforming all other jetting printers, in addition to providing a high capacity build volume and exceptionally fast print speeds - up to twice the speed of the previous generation. Its data processing capabilities support files up to 250% larger, enabling enhanced productivity for a wide range of prototyping, casting and end-use part production needs, as well as producing the truest-to-CAD parts of any jetting 3D printing process.
The series ProJet MJP 3600 include models designed for printing detailed wax patterns for jewelry castings, precise patterns for other lost wax foundry casting applications, and dental applications for precise models and casting wax ups. It can also be used for advanced healthcare applications, including drill and cut guides for dental and medical procedures with the ability to print in USP Class VI-capable, bio-compatible materials. The high resolution of multijet printing means that even fine features come out correctly. Support structure is comprised of easy to remove, melt-away wax for simple post-processing, eliminating hand scraping, high pressure water jets, caustic chemical baths, or special facility requirements.
The ProJet MJP 3600 provides a large net build volume (xyz) 11.75" (298 mm) x 7.3" (185 mm) x 8" (203 mm), exceptionally fast print speeds and high definition parts. There is a choice of materials and selectable print resolutions. It works with VisiJet materials in UV curable plastic, in a range of colors, translucency, and tensile strengths, as well as castable wax.
Methods 3D has installed the ProJet MJP 3600 within its multiple technology centers across the US to provide product demonstration, training, support, and development of customer solutions on this exceptional production printer incorporating the full range of available materials.
"We're excited to offer the ProJet 3600 that uses MultiJet Printing technologies to print durable precision plastic parts, along with the extensive line of 3D Systems Direct Metal Printers, " said Mr. Benjamin Fisk, General Manager, Methods 3D, Inc. "Parts made with MultiJet Printers have a smooth finish, high durability, excellent material properties, and can achieve accuracies rivaling SLA (Stereolithography) for many applications."
In October 2015, Methods Machine Tools announced it entered into a partner agreement with 3D Systems, a provider of the most advanced and comprehensive 3D digital design and fabrication solutions available today, including 3D printers, print materials and cloud-sourced custom parts.
Methods 3D, Inc. is comprised of a dedicated team of industry experienced, highly-skilled technical sales and applications engineers fully integrated with, and leveraging, the extensive machining and manufacturing experience of Methods Machine Tools, Inc. This partnership enhances Methods’ portfolio of leading-edge precision machine tools and solutions for traditional manufacturing with advanced 3D printing solutions, enabling their customers to enter new markets, expand their manufacturing capabilities, and revolutionize manufacturing with 3D printing.
