XYZprinting to Preview 3D Printer that Uses Memjet Print-Head Technology
Maker of page-wide color-inkjet printing technology Memjet reports that XYZprinting, which markets consumer and professional 3D printers and software, will preview a 3D printer that uses Memjet’s print-head technology, marking the first time Memjet’s print heads will be used for 3D printing. XYZprinting’s Memjet-based 3D printer is said to provide faster print speed and be more affordable than other 3D printers in its class.
XYZprinting, which is said to be the global leader in the desktop 3D-printer market according to market-research firm Context, will use Memjet’s technology to create “fast, price-competitive solutions capable of expanding 3D-printing opportunities into new markets.”
The solutions are expected to be available in early 2017 in the Asia-Pacific region. Previews of XYZprinting’s Memjet-based 3D-printing platform can be seen at the Memjet stand (Hall 5, stand C24) at the drupa 2016 trade show being held in Düsseldorf, Germany from May 31 – June 10, 2016.
According to Memjet, its print heads used in XYZprinting’s 3D-printing platform will enable the company to “dramatically increase the speed of powder-based 3D-object creation.” Memjet says that with Memjet-powered 3D printers, objects can be created up to five-times faster than with other 3D printers in the same class, and that Memjet-powered 3D printers will also be more affordable.
The 3D Opportunity
Memjet also notes that market-research firm Context recently published a report that indicates “strong growth” in the 3D-printer market. In the report, 3D Printing Market Trends Q4 2015 and Full Year, Context notes that worldwide shipments for 3D printers rose 19 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015, and 30 percent during the full year.
The industry’s progress is reflected in XYZprinting’s expanded product line. Simon Shen, CEO of XYZprinting, and its parent company, New Kinpo, commented, “The past year has been a time of growth both for 3D printing and for XYZprinting. We introduced several 3D-printer models at the CES 2016 show, and will launch the new da Vinci Mini Series 3D printer and 3D pen this summer. Our partnership with Memjet enables us to build on this success, giving us the technology we need to dramatically enhance the speed and economy of our business-class solutions.”
Memjet CEO and Chairman Len Lauer commented: “XYZprinting has a strong reputation for delivering 3D products that are accessible, high quality, and easy-to-use. Memjet shares a similar reputation for the way our print heads have transformed traditional printing processes. Bringing the power of the XYZprinting organization together with Memjet technology creates a disruptive new solution that enables a whole new group of businesses to benefit from the potential of 3D printing. We are looking forward to presenting this exciting new development at drupa 2016.”
