Nexa3D brings its high speed industrial-grade NXV SLA 3D Printer to CES 2018

Jan 10, 2018 | By Benedict

Just as it does every year, CES 2018 is proving to be a hotbed for exciting new 3D printer releases. We’ve already seen new products from companies like Airwolf 3D and Polaroid, and now Nexa3D—the present venture of former 3D Systems CEO Avi Reichental—is demonstrating its NXV professional SLA 3D printer. Priced at $19,950 per system, the NXV SLA 3D printer is capable of printing 30 micron XY resolutions.

The NXV is equipped with cognitive software and integrated sensors, both of which optimize manufacturing part performance, and provides detailed diagnostics and continuous monitoring. It uses deep machine learning algorithms to slice, optimize, and adaptively compile complex geometries at uniform speed and high resolution, allowing users to print the right parts in the right way via the most cost-effective and time-saving route.

According to the company, the NXV 3D printer is easy to operate across different situations too, as it is configured to run using both on-board and cloud controls for in-situ and remote operations — of either a single printer, or a full factory of printers. Putting multiple NXVs together enables the mass production of customized parts.

As future 3D printers in the Nexa3D range will be, the NXV is powered by the company’s proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) technology and patented structured light matrix, which is capable of reaching top speeds of 1 cm per minute. This phenomenal speed cuts the time needed for the 3D printing of precision functional parts from hours to minutes, making 3D printing a viable challenger to injection molding.

“3D printing is an unstoppable force of change in every industry and within it, high-speed 3D printing is the next frontier in additive manufacturing and one that is highly valued by end-users, strategic partners, resellers, and investors alike,” commented Reichental. “After several years of bootstrapping through the early stages of proving and nailing our game-changing technology, we are gratified to be here at CES 2018.”

It’s a busy time for Nexa3D, which has been doing much more than developing its NXV 3D printer. In November, we reported that the company had partnered with BEGO and XYZprinting to jointly develop and commercialize 3D printing technology for the dental industry. Under the agreement, BEGO will exclusively market and sell, under its own label, a special purpose high-speed Nexa3D dental printer that will be manufactured by XYZprinting.

Nexa3D is also revving up its interest in the automotive industry, having joined the Techniplas open innovation program, which encourages the sharing of technologies to create new opportunities within the 3D printing industry. As a full innovation partner, Nexa3D is using CES 2018 to showcase 3D printed automotive innovations alongside other additive manufacturing companies within the expanding Techniplas ecosystem.

The Nexa3D-Techniplas connection is clearly strengthened by the fact that Reichental heads the Techniplas 3D printing division, which was established in June 2017.

“Manufacturing in the U.S. was important. While it’s critical we remain responsive to the market, we also feel an obligation to improve our local jobs economy.” Andrew Rutter CEO, Type A Machines

Type A Machines® and BriteLab® announced today it has been entered into a contract manufacturing relationship for the production of the award winning Series 1 3D printer. The partnership allows Type A Machines to meet the increasing global demand for its industrial-grade Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printer. BriteLab provides collaboration-based product lifecycle focused manufacturing solutions from its facility in San Jose, CA. As a result, Type A Machines’ products are being manufactured where they’re designed, Silicon Valley. The Type A Machines 3D printer product line will benefit greatly from BriteLab OEM management, factory automation, product engineering, and high volume expertise.

“The Type A Machines Series 1 line of 3D printers, featuring one of the largest build volumes, support for more than 80 materials, and hot-swappable integration with the Print Pod, has opened new opportunities for 3D manufacturers and entrepreneurs worldwide,” said Andrew Rutter, Type A Machines’ Founder and CEO. “Manufacturing in the U.S. was an important consideration in our selection of an OEM partner. While it’s critical we remain responsive to the market, and protect our intellectual property, we also feel an obligation to improve our local jobs economy. We’re pleased BriteLab was able to meet all of our requirements.”

According to Gartner, worldwide shipments of 3D printers topped 455,000 units in 2016, more than double 2015 shipments. Furthermore, by 2020 the market is expected to surge to more than 6.7 million units. By partnering with Britelab to manufacture the Series 1 line of 3D printers, Type A Machines is poised to meet this growing demand, while focusing on the needs of enterprise customers across the emerging global 3D manufacturing market.

“Type A Machines’ groundbreaking technologies exemplify the spirit that continues to make Silicon Valley the innovation capital of the world,” said Robert de Neve, CEO, BriteLab. “We look forward to collaborating with Type A Machines at a peer-to-peer level and applying our full OEM and automation expertise to help ensure their continued success.”

As part of the on-going relationship, BriteLab will provide Design for Manufacturing (DFM), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and New Product Introduction (NPI) services for the Type A Machines Series 1 product line. By providing Type A Machines high-volume manufacturing services at their scalable facilities in San Jose, CA, BriteLab can deliver product faster than any offshore facility, while enabling Type A Machines’ designers and engineers to stay intimately involved through final production. The result is a reduction in time to market, in IP theft associated with offshore manufacturing, and in travel time, while providing an increase in machine quality.
