Objet Announces Printing Optimization Package for Eden350V and Eden500V

New Optimax(TM) Software and Hardware Package Automates Resin Management, Improving Resin Utilization and Ensuring Optimal Quality

REHOVOT, Israel, January 30/ -- Objet Geometries Ltd., the world leader in ultra-thin layer photopolymer jetting, today announced an advanced printing optimization package for the Eden350V(TM)v and Eden500V(TM) 3-D printing systems. The new package, named Optimax(TM) automates resin management, improves resin utilization, reduces the risk of human error in loading and unloading cartridges, and assures model and machine quality on very long runs. The new Optimax(TM) will support all new Eden350V and Eden500V printers and will be available as an upgrade on previously installed Eden V-series machines.

The Optimax package comprises three software and hardware modules that together create a comprehensive package for ensuring optimized printing.

Auto ID is a user-friendly read/write data accessory that automates many aspects of resin handling. Continuously monitoring the model material cartridge inserted in the machine, it automatically identifies the material type and the weight of residual material remaining in the cartridge, in real time. It ensures the loaded materials automatically appear in Objet Studio(TM) and automates setup of resin parameters in Objet Studio and in the printer software. The Auto ID module also facilitates resin cartridge replacement, issues alerts and varied messages for ensuring printing quality.

The Image Processing Engine (IPE) module improves the interaction between the printing system and the material and, using a smart algorithm, creates efficiencies in material consumption of up to 15 percent.

The Built-in-Tests (BIT) module ensures maximum quality, particularly on long jobs, and facilitates in trouble shooting. It activates automated tests to verify the 3-D printing system is ready to print at the highest possible quality and it maps and reviews the most vital printing-related tasks, including communication, data card, voltages and temperatures. The easy to use interface enables clear viewing and understanding of test results.

"The Optimax package will enable Objet users to get even more out of their investment in Eden350V and Eden500V machines by ensuring optimized quality and materials utilization, reducing their ongoing operational costs and increasing uptime," said Adina Shorr, CEO at Objet Geometries. "The development of Optimax is the latest step in our continuous efforts to bring more value to our existing and growing customer base, to improve their 3-D printing capabilities and their bottom line."
