VoxelJet VXC800 continuous industrial 3d printer

The VXC800 is the world's first continuous 3D printer, that allows the building and unpacking process steps to run at the same time, without having to interrupt the operations of the system. The machine produces metal-casting moulds and models.
This innovation establishes a completely new generation of machines that allows the building and unpacking process steps to run at the same time, without having to interrupt the operations of the system. This leap in technology has become possible thanks to a novel patent pending design with a horizontal belt conveyor that controls the layer building. The layers are built at the entrance of the belt conveyor, while the unpacking takes place at the exit. The finished component can simply be removed from the rear end of the system when it has gone through the entire material.
There are virtually no restrictions with respect to the length of the moulds. The width and height of the build space are 850 x 500 mm. The VXC800 works with a 600 dpi high-definition print head and layer thicknesses ranging from 150 µm to 400 µm. The printed models offer a high degree of detail and excellent surface quality.
