MMS AUGUST 2018 268 JEDD COLE | EDITOR | IMTS 2018 Additive Manufacturing ON DISPLAY Printer Delivers Functional Parts at Low Operational Cost CADBlu offers 3D Systems' ProJet MJP 2500 Plus 3D printer, which is designed to provide professional-grade 3D printing capabilities at an affordable price and in a compact footprint. The printer's industrial print head and print parameters increase print speeds to improve effi- ciency and productivity. Driven by 3D Sprint client software, the printer is said to deliver functional parts with speed, ease and low operational costs. The EasyClean system enables removal of supports from MultiJet printed parts in under 30 min. without manual labor. A variety of VisiJet material combinations are avail- able to meet users' rapid prototyping needs. | CADBlu | East, Level 2, Booth 121641 Aluminum Alloy for 3D Printing Combines Benefits with Familiarity Elementum 3D's AL6061-RAM2% product is an alumi- num 6061 powder material said to achieve properties comparable to wrought 6061-T6 on existing laser powder-bed fusion equipment. Elementum 3D's reactive additive manufacturing (RAM) technology has enabled the printing of production-quality 6061. Aluminum 6061 is a commonly used alloy in the aerospace, automotive and defense industries. Accord- ing to the company, advantages of the product include cost-effective print speeds and quality surface finish, combined with the familiarity of 6061. | Elementum 3D | West, Level 3 & Annex, Booth 432403 Stereolithography Process Enables Design of Fuel Injector Protolabs, a pro- vider of on-demand 3D printing, CNC machining, sheet metal fabrication and injection molding services, highlights its stereolithography (SL) capability. The company will display a 3D-printed aerospace part designed by Blume Engineering that serves as a fuel injector and nose cone adapter for a small ramjet engine. During the developmental stages of the project, the design team took advantage of the quick-turn prototyping and precision build capabilities of the SL process. In addition to stereolithography, Protolabs also offers PolyJet, selective laser sintering, Multi Jet Fusion and direct metal laser sintering services. | Protolabs | West, Level 3, Booth 432327
