Launching the 3D printing accessory from the JCK Las Vegas, and although the company has previously launched products specifically designed for jewellery, it appears the M-Type tray will be compatible with the company’s more versatile platforms.
Developed and tested in EnvisionTEC’s research and facility in Gladbeck, Germany, the M-Type is to be offered to customers of the Micro and Vida line of 3D printers, as an optional replacement for the current Pre-Stretched Assembly (PSA) tray system.
The M-Type features optical glass coating in a film similar to a Mylar-type film, while the outer perimeter of the tray is made from flexible silicone.
EnvisionTEC says the M-Type makes easier the separation of each exposure layer during the build of a 3D printed object.
Al Siblani, CEO of EnvisionTEC explained:
This new material tray system makes using EnvisionTEC desktop 3D printers even easier and more affordable.
Our company has offered a similar tray for years on our original desktop models, such as the Aureas and Apollo, as well as some Perfactory models.
And although the PSA still has benefits for many applications, we decided to bring this cost-saving approach to our Micro and Vida lines, too.
While the Micro and Vida desktop lines are highlighted as efficient solutions for jewelry designers by EnvisionTEC, the printers can also be harnessed for use in educational settings, industrial applications, and the creation of dental and medical devices.
Yet there is no special information about availability and pricing. We will let you know if any information leaks out. Stay tuned.
