South Korean 3D printer manufacturing company Sindoh launched its industrial polymer 3D printer, Sindoh S100 and is the first commercial machine offering Materialise Blueprint PA12 process technology enabling 3D printing up to 100 percent recycled powder.
In addition to this Bluesint PA12, each S100 comes with Materialise Magics Print 3D printing software, its Build Processor accompanying control platform (MCP) which is fully compatible with Magics 25.
Materialise, on the other hand, acquired five S100 printers and became the first company to obtain Sindoh’s latest machine.
“Bluesint PA12 represents a major step towards making 3D printing more sustainable,” said Fried Vancraen, CEO of Materialise. “The introduction of the Sindoh S100 printer, the first to support Bluesint PA12, will help us empower our customers to make a choice for sustainability.”
Reduced Powder Waste with Bluesint PA12
Materialise recently unveiled its Bluesint PA12 technology in November last year, which is designed to improve the resource efficiency of the laser sintering 3D printing process enabling printing up to 100 percent reused powder.
This technology will help in overcoming “orange-peel” effect which is usually observed in parts printed with reused powder caused due to cooling of layers.
Parts that are printed with reused powder using Materialise’s Bluesint PA 12 technology, however, carry similar mechanical and visual properties to other fresh powders used in laser sintering.
In addition to the reduction in powder waste during 3D printing, Blueprint PA12 delivers parts with desirable technical specifications.
By blending Materialise’s Bluesint PA12 technology, the Sindoh S100 is believed to be the first commercially available machine.
Sindoh S100 is the first industrial polymer 3D printer from the South Korean manufacturer. It is known for its fused filament fabrication (FFF), including 3D WOX1, 3DWOX 2X and DP200 machines.
The latest machine from Sindoh offers large build volume of 510 x 510 x 500 mm. It is equipped with duel-feed system that will help in increasing the print production.
The S100 is capable to work with layers of variables thickness. Moreover, its semi-automatic calibration and remote diagnostic maintenance helps in ensuring high operational efficiency.
“Sindoh S100 has both performance and economic values through its large build volume and an unparalleled recycling rate,” said Dr. Woo Suk-Hyung, Chairman of Sindoh. “This new product also demonstrates the excellent synergy of Materialise software and the 60 years of hardware manufacturing experience of Sindoh”.
