3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) is one of the oldest, largest, and most global AM equipment manufacturers in the industry. The company was founded in 1986 and pioneered stereolithography technology in its early years. Today, 3D Systems markets numerous technologies and caters to most industries and their different use cases.
3D Systems Figure 4 overview
The 3D Systems Figure 4 is a professional SLA 3D printer made by 3D Systems, a manufacturer based in the US. With the Figure 4, 3D Systems aims “to match the accuracy, reliability, repeatability and uptime of traditional injection moulding”.
3D Systems’ Figure 4 is a modular additive manufacturing system that users can configure at will to best fit their professional needs. Indeed, this 3D printer is available in four different forms: a production unit, a modular unit, a standalone unit, and a dental unit.
This 3D printer uses an advanced Stereolithography 3D printing technology, assisted by robotic arms, in order to massively produce 3D parts. These robotic arms move parts from one station to another, thereby providing an almost complete manufacturing system.
3D Systems Figure 4 main features
The platform allows customers to tailor configurations and select materials to address specific applications. Professionals are able to rapidly produce prototypes and end-use parts in industries like consumer goods, automotive, aerospace, and medical.
This modular printer platform enables businesses to cost-effectively produce thousands (or more) of products per year.
Modular and automated
Configurations range from single-print engine machines, to fully automated, high-volume production systems with 16 or more print engines, automated material delivery and integrated post-processing.
3D Systems Figure 4 units
- Production unit: completely automated and customizable system for high-volume production, with integrated post-processing.
- Modular unit: upgradable system to grow with users’ needs.
- Standalone unit: industrial-grade, single engine 3D printing system suitable for small businesses.
- Dental unit: independent 3D printer designed for dental production.
Figure 4 for digital dentistry
The Figure 4’s technology and 3D Systems’ NextDent biocompatible materials come together as a next-generation additive manufacturing platform for digital dentistry. This combination delivers better, faster and more predictable patient treatments with disruptive total cost of operations.
NextDent biocompatible materials
The Figure 4 platform leverages 3D Systems’ acquisition of NextDent’s portfolio of 12 clinically-effective materials. These materials boast regulatory approvals in over 70 countries for a range of indications. Therefore, they are suitable for uses from crowns and bridges to surgical guides, orthodontic splints and dentures.
