Case study after case study shows industrial 3D printing’s skill to manufacture making faster, cut costs, and reduce material usage. It is effortless to believe, hearing the stories, that the advancement is nothing short of magical: a machine spits out a ideal, shiny, eager-to use part, seemingly out of thin air. There may actually be a puff of smoke involved. (Note to new users: your 3D printing device should not be emitting puffs of smoke. If it is, unplug and call the repair guy.) In reality, there’s yet a lot of work involved in getting a 3D printed part eager for use.
Many a developer may consider post-systeming the bane of their existence. In industrial 3D printing, many parts require assists, and removing them can take longer than the actual print job. Sanding the part, filing the part, immersing the part in noxious chemicals – it’s messy, monotonous, and time-consuming, not to mention stressful, especially when a part is requireed right now. Most developers are resigned to it, yet, as the trade-off for the other benefits 3D printing offers.
Now, yet, there may no longer be a require for that trade-off at all. Woburn, Massachusetts-based Rize Inc. has announced a brand new industrial-grade PC 3D printing device that, they say, completely eliminates the require for post-systeming. The Rize One, that can be commercially on the market later this year, promises to slash costs, reduce turnaround time by 50%, eliminate mess and excess materials, and take industrial 3D printing of the lab to the office.
“Post-systeming has been 3D printing’s dirty little secret, as engineers and additive making lab managers wrestled with the reality that post-systeming parts after 3D printing frequently doubled the total system time; introduced worthwhile costs; and practuallyted 3D printing devices of the PC,” said Frank Marangell, President and CEO of Rize. “Rize One eliminates those sacrifices, opening a world of possibilities for designers and engineers to donate prototypes and on-demand finished parts much faster and with sturdyer material – than preceding. Whether 3D printing helps you go to market, or turn it into a market, Rize can essentially vary your production cycle.”
Rize has been quietly developing the printing device for two years, impressively staying at a lower place the radar until now. Whilst a new company, Rize is created up of a team of 3D printing veterans with solid expertise, experience, and over 20 patents one of them. Marangell was the president of Objet North America prior to their merger with Stratasys. The company was founded in 2012 by Eugene Giller, who created inkjet 3D printing advancement at Z Corporation (now 3D Systems), and Leonid Raiz, who conceived nothing less than 3D CAD software and founded Revit, now Autodesk.
“With its experience and pedigree in the industry, Rize has put together a dream team,” said Nilanjana Bhowmik, Partner at Longworth Venture Partners, that is backing the Rize One with a worthwhile amount of seed capital. “This advancement can manufacture a worthwhile impact on the 3D printing industry.”
The key to the Rize One is the company’s patented Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) advancement and Rizium One filament, a watertight engineering- and medical-grade thermoplastic that, according to the team, turn it intos parts that are twice as sturdy as parts printed with much like technologies. During the printing system (that creates zero harmful emissions), a repelling ink called Release One is jetted between the part and its assist structures, so that once the part comes off the print platform, the user can just snap off the assists as easily as bringing apart Legos. The printing device in addition showcases a “marking ink” that allows for for text or images to be printed on the parts.
General specifications include:
Printer size: 543 x 915 x 150 mm (21.4 x 36 x 25.4 in)Build size: 300 x 200 x 150 mm (12 x 8 x 6 in)Layer thickness: 0.25mm (250 microns)
“We run our 3D printing devices 24/7 to turn it into the parts central to Reebok’s advancement, and, unfortunately, post systeming has been a necessary but laborious and time-consuming system,” said Gary Rabinovitz, Reebok’s Additive Manufacturing Lab Manager. “An effortless-to-use, zero post-systeming 3D printing device like Rize may dramatically improve workflow, allowing us to donate parts as much as 50% faster than much like technologies, while reducing the cost of labor, materials and equipment.”
