SCALABLE, SEMI-AUTOMATED 3D MANUFACTURING SOLUTION DESIGNED TO SCALE WITH GROWTH
Figure 4® Modular is a scalable, semi-automated 3D production solution that grows with your business, enabling capacity to meet your present and future needs, up to 10,000 parts per month, for unprecedented manufacturing agility. With expandable capacity up to 24 print engines, automated job management and queuing, automated material delivery, and centralized post-processing, Figure 4 Modular’s end-to-end digital manufacturing workflow is ideal for low to mid-volume production and bridge manufacturing. In addition, each printer can run different materials and different jobs as part of a single high throughput line serving a multitude of parts being produced.
The base configuration of Figure 4 Modular is comprised of a single printer and a central controller. This can be easily scaled to up to 24 printer modules on a single controller, with layout configuration flexibility, empowering production to rapidly multiply without disruption to the shop floor.
Figure 4 Modular enables companies to move directly into manufacturing from a digital CAD file, bypassing tooling costs and delays to start delivering final parts immediately. This semi-automated solution reduces labor through automated job management and queuing, and an automated material feed system.
Figure 4 Modular’s individual printers enable simultaneous production of a wide variety of part sizes and shapes, in multiple materials for a diverse range of parts for production and prototyping.
Fast and easy print jobs preparation, ultra-fast print speeds, post-curing in minutes instead of hours and production management ensure high parts throughput with high accuracy and repeatability.
3D Systems’ Material Design Center has over 30 years of proven R&D experience and process development expertise. The broad and expanding range of materials available for Figure 4 Modular addresses a wide variety of applications needs, for functional prototyping, direct production of end-use parts, molding and casting, and includes rigid and durable thermoplastic-like, rubber-like, heat resistant and biocompatible capable materials.
