3D Systems Figure 4 3D Printing SystemMaking 3D Production real with scalable, modular factory solutions
The first-ever scalable, full-integrated 3D printing systems with lighting-fast speed that enables up to 15x faster throughput and reduces part costs up to 20x!
Reinventing the Factory
Figure 4 solutions completely eliminate production delays by delivering incredibly accurate parts in a wide range of durable, production grade materials that allow for the immediate part turnaround – with no costs or delays from tooling. With an unmatched digital design flexibility allowing for updates at anytime, the Figure 4 complete cuts out downtime and enables increased productivity, durability, repeatability and lower total cost of operations (TCO).
Modular Platform Grows with Manufacturing Needs
Diverse Range of Materials
One of the greatest advantages of Figure 4 solutions is the vast array of advanced material capability. 3D Systems new functional plastics remove the lengthy photo- and heat-curing processes and only require printing and curing – making the process lighting fast. The materials feature the same durability as traditionally manufactured parts and include a broad range of industrial, dental and custom materials to enable true replacement of injection molding and urethane casting. The result is a level of accuracy and surface finish unlike any other currently available materials.
High-Speed Digital Molding
Accelerate and simplify your manufacturing process. Figure 4 delivers repeatable, true-to-CAD part accuracy in a flexible and agile digital molding workflow, producing production parts in an environment that matches the accuracy, reliability, repeatability and uptime of traditional injection molding.
Figure 4 solutions use 3D Sprint, 3D Systems’ advanced software for file preparation, printing and management from a single, intuitive interface.
