Stratasys has expanded the Objet500 Connex range with two new 3D printers

Stratasys has upgraded its Objet Connex range with two new printers - the Objet500 Connex1 and Connex2 - with triple-jetting multiple material capabilities.

Stratasys triple-jetting technology is designed to allow the user to build products with up to three different materials in a single run, or even mix multiple material droplets to form new digital materials.

As well as the Objet500 Connex3 colour multi-material 3D Printer, showcased at for the first time in the UK at DEVELOP3D Live, the Objet500 Connex1 and Objet500 Connex2 line up like this:

HP unveils new Haswell Xeon E5 v3 workstations - the Z440, Z640, Z840

HP has refreshed its desktop Z Workstation line up with three new machines built around Intel’s brand new Haswell-EP Xeon E5 v3 series CPUs and new professional GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.

It’s not often both sets of processors get updated at the same time so HP is calling this a step change in terms of performance. We tend to agree.

The HP Z440, HP Z640 and HP Z840 workstations also feature new DDR4 memory, which runs 14 percent faster than DDR3 memory, HP Z Turbo Drive PCIe storage, which boasts twice the sequential read/write speeds of SATA 6Gb/sec SSDs and Thunderbolt 2, which is said to be four times as fast as USB 3.0.

In addition to new desktop workstation, HP has also introduced Gen2 versions of its ZBook 15 and ZBook 17 mobile workstations. There’s no change to the industrial design or form factor, but there are some small but significant changes inside.

The big news is the introduction of PCIe Solid State Drive (SSD) storage, thanks to an M.2 version of the Z Turbo Drive, which was a recent addition to its desktop workstations.

Tungsten latest 3D printing material to light up interest

Smit Röntgen has spent the last 10 years developing its Tungsten 3D printing process

Philips-owned company Smit Röntgen has announced its ability to 3D print pure Tungsten parts - the metal with the highest melting point of 3422°C.

Imaging component manufacturer Smit Röntgen has been developing the process over the last decade, and has now opened the lid on its process that through laser melting technology can produce solid parts from this tricky material.

The downside is that a minimum of 48 hours is required for a CAD model to be transformed into a solid product, yet the interest that this will create in the aerospace and medical industries should see this development time drop further in time.
