At the opening of Rapid, the unrivaled additive manufacturing event, from May 16 to 19 in Orlando, Florida, Prodways, a subsidiary of Groupe Gorgé, presents its new industrial laser sintering printer, the ProMaker P1000.
The development of this new printer is the result of the purchase of Norge Systems in March 2015 combined with the Prodways R&D teams’ expertise in powder sintering technology. It extends the current “Prodways powered by Farsoon” range in the industrial segment. ProMaker P1000 demonstrates Prodways’ ambition to make industrial plastic powder laser sintering performance accessible to a wider market in order to facilitate innovation and the development of new applications.
The new ProMaker P1000 printer boasts a wide manufacturing platform for printing large items and the added advantage of professional productivity. It offers excellent thermal stability, thanks to its smart temperature control system, and benefits from a very fine laser for high-resolution items with optimized mechanical properties.
In addition, the ProMaker P1000 has the following new features developed specially for this printer: a completely new modular coating system, enabling optimal control of the powder distribution and more even layers using all types of material, as well as a touchscreen, making it easy for users to operate.
The ProMaker P1000 benefits from Prodways’ wide range of materials with high recyclability rates, as well as the strategy of being open to other materials, which Prodways applies to its full range of printers in order to facilitate customer innovation and the development of new applications.
The ProMaker P1000 will be unveiled for the first time worldwide at the Rapid 2016 event and will be available at the end of 2016 at a special launch price of under €100,000 (excl. tax).
It extends Prodways’ range of industrial laser sintering printers and confirms Prodways’ strategy of opening up new fields of application in additive manufacturing by addressing new professional user segments.
