3DGence, a Polish 3D printer manufacturer, has introduced its latest industrial FFF system, the INDUSTRY F420. This system, which will be showcased at Formnext next week, offers a larger build volume than its predecessor, the INDUSTRY F340, as well as an improved printing speed up to 400 mm/s.
“The high print speed is the key aspect of our industrial 3D printing process,” said Remigiusz Synowiec, Product Manager at 3DGence. “This 3D printer is a perfect tool for quick production of end-use parts that can be used in final products.”
The INDUSTRY F420
The INDUSTRY F420 features a high-temperature print chamber of 380 x 380 x 420 mm, to enable the creation of large 3D printed models for rapid production, customization and prototyping. Its modular printing system, uses 3 modules with predefined profiles for materials such as ULTEM and PEEK.
According to Filip Turzyński, Technology and Materials Expert at 3DGence, an emphasis on materials ensures the highest print quality and final parts performance in an industrial setting. Thus, most recently, the company partnered with advanced material companies Arkema and Armor Group to make its ESM-10 (Engineering Soluble Material) and expand the use of open-market applications for PAEK based materials in 3D printing.

The INDUSTRY F420 is also equipped with an advanced air filtration system, a signal tower and UPS power backup, as well as a scalable cloud-based operation for remote network monitoring. Mateusz Sidorowicz, Marketing Director at 3DGence added, “The development of this project was based on the insights of our clients and our new cutting edge technology.”
“As an expert in the production and implementation of 3D printing technology in Tier 1 manufacturing companies, we are very proud to expand our INDUSTRY machine line. This high-performance 3D printer is designed for demanding engineering applications.”
