Objet opens up 3D options for Ricoh
By Tim Sheahan Thursday, 10 May 2012
Ricoh (Hall 8a, stand 46-1-3) is demonstrating 3D technology at Drupa courtesy of its partner Objet.
Using piezo printheads from Ricoh, Objet enables manufacturers and designers to build prototypes by jetting layers of liquid photopolymeric acrylic-based materials.
The range of nearly 70 liquids allows for the simulation of a wide range of different product characteristics, such as different levels of rigidity and flexibility.
Objet systems are even able to mix different liquids in one 3D print, creating even more possibilities. The company already produces custom-fit hearing aids and dental implants.
Other applications in the field of rapid manufacturing were now limited only by the need to develop new and innovative materials, according to Objet.
