The NXE400 and Varseo XL

Co-founded by Reichental in 2016, Nexa3D develops SLA 3D printers geared towards professionals and businesses. 

At the RAPID + TCT show 2019, the company introduced its NXE400 SLA 3D printer. The company’s new COO, Izhar Medalsy, has overseen the development of the NXE400, for the past two years. On the capabilities of the NXE400, Reichental commented, “Our NXE400 presents a significant upgrade for experienced stereolithography users with its ultra-fast printing speed, high volume precision ready to use parts, and expanded range of performance materials that come at the most economical cost of ownership available on the market today.”

At the International Dental Show (IDS) 2019 in Cologne, Nexa3D also unveiled another new system, the Varseo XL, an SLA 3D printer developed for the dental industry. The company worked alongside German dental device manufacturer BEGO to make the system compatible with BEGO’s full range of dental resins. 

Recently, Nexa3D expanded its North Amercian channel sales with the help of 3D printer reseller Dynamism
