Objet to Debut Industry's First Multi-Material 3-D Printer, Show Range of Solutions, at EuroMold 2007


REHOVOT, Israel, November 29 -- Objet Geometries Ltd., the world leader in ultra-thin layer photopolymer jetting, today announced that the international debut of its Connex500(TM) 3-D Printing System and PolyJet Matrix(TM) Technology will take place at the EuroMold 2007 show in Frankfurt, Germany. The revolutionary Connex500, which is the first system capable of printing parts and assemblies made of multiple model materials, all in a single build, will be demonstrated for the first time, at the Objet stand (Hall 8.0, Stand H-144).

At its EuroMold booth, Objet will also show its Eden500V(TM) printing system which offers the ideal solution for large-size model requirements and the small-footprint, cost effective Eden250(TM) 3-D printing system. Both systems are based on the patented office-friendly PolyJet(TM) technology, for jetting photopolymer materials. A wide range of models, showcasing the unique properties of the various FullCure materials, will be on display at the Objet booth, including the newest addition - TangoPlus, FullCure930. This new material expands the Tango family of rubber-like materials, offering exceptional elongation at break, excellent toughness and durability and high resistance to tearing.

With in-booth demos of three of Objet's innovative 3-dimensional printing systems, the Connex500, Eden500V and the Eden250, running throughout the show, visitors to the Objet booth will have a unique opportunity to experience the ultimate in 3-D printing.

"The Connex500 opens a new chapter for the 3-D printing and rapid prototyping industry, and we expect it to generate significant interest throughout the EuroMold show," said Adina Shorr, CEO of Objet Geometries. "As the premier industry show, EuroMold is the perfect opportunity to enable a wide range of product design and development professionals to experience the most exciting industry development in years."

In addition, Objet will present its new material technology - Durus(TM). Durus is a direct result of Objet's continuing efforts to offer customers materials for prototyping plastic products requiring polypropylene-like properties. Durus technology enables simulation of the toughness (Notched Izod Impact of 40.22 J/m), flexibility (Elongation at Break of 44.2%), strength (Modulus of Elasticity of 1135 MPa) and resistance to fatigue of polypropylene. Furthermore, parts made using Durus technology look and feel like final products made of polypropylene.

As well as being on show at the Objet stand, the Eden250 will be displayed in Hall 5.1, at booth B-145.
