Machines-3D to offer Tiertime continuous 3D printing technology in Europe

In a new international partnership Machines-3D, a leading online marketplace for 3D printers, 3D scanners and consumables, will be bringing three new FDM 3D printers to the European market.

On behalf of Chinese 3D printer manufacturer Tiertime, Machines-3D is distributing the X5, UP300 and UP mini 2 ES 3D printers to meet a range of professional and industrial needs from reliable prototyping, through to near-non-stop production.

Inline with the European launch, Tiertime and Machines-3D will be co-presenting the new range this week at the 3D PRINT expo in Lyon, France, at the Machines-3D booth, D24, EUROEXPO Hall 1, from the 5th through the 7th of June 2018.

Below, 3D Printing Industry has exclusive teasers, and full technical specifications of the new machines, including the X5, an automated, 3D printing production line, dubbed Tiertime’s “crowning achievement.”

Tiertime UP mini 2 ES 3D printer

The UP mini 2 ES 3D printer is an upgrade of Tiertime’s best-selling machine the UP mini 2.Making budget ABS 3D printing even better than before, the ES model has a 3 Inch Color LCD Screen for control, enhanced 3D printing workflow and, as with each of the new systems, is compatible with Tiertime Print Queue software for managing multiple print jobs.

As with the UP mini 2, theES version also has a fully enclosed build chamber, with a HEPA filtration system, to ensure every print job is emissions-safe.

The UP Mini 2 ES is now available for preorder through Machines-3D for €690 (excl. tax), and first deliveries of the system are expected 17th September 2018.

Tiertime UP300 3D Printer

The UP300, a new innovation from Tiertime, offers a large build volume, 205 × 255 ×225mm (XYZ), for functional 3D printing.

Complete with three interchangeable extruders, the UP300 is tuned for quick change and set up of 3D printing in ABS, PLA and TPU. With this modular system, Tiertime is also prepared for  customers’ future material requirements, and a dual-extrusion system, without the need for building a new machine from scratch.

Another key feature of the UP300 are the double-sided interchangeable build plates, helping users cut-out 3D printer downtime.

The Tiertime UP300 is now available for preorder through Machines-3D for €2,090 (excl. tax), with first deliveries expected 17th September 2018.

Tiertime X5

An exciting new development from Tiertime, the X5 is a 3D printing system capable of continuous 3D printing. Innovative and game-changing in its approach, the X5 is capable of automatically feeding and reloading build plates for near-non-stop production.

Though other companies have demonstrated similar production systems in recent years, it is encouraging to see Tiertime’s X5 is available on the market.

In total, the X5 “short-run workhorse” can automatically swap between up to 12 different plates, each with a printable volume of 180 × 230 × 200 mm (XYZ), simply delivering 3D prints out of the machine when complete.

It has a dual filtration system, and is controlled by Tiertime Print Queue. Pending print jobs can also be loaded via 3 USB ports in the system.

The Tiertime X5 is available for preorder through Machines-3D for €3,690 (excl. tax), with first deliveries expected 17th September 2018.
