The new Objet 1000 Plus is expected to be 40 per cent faster than its predecessor

Stratasys is hoping that a 40 per cent speed boost can bring its mammoth Object 1000 Plus machine into contention for industrial use producing end-use parts.

Its 1000 x 800 x 500mm build envelope now comes with a new optimised print block movement, said to accelerates print speeds up to 40 per cent faster than its predecessor, while maintaining its multi-material abilities.

Alongside other refinements and a simplified post processing, costs-per-part should also see an improvement from the original machine launched in 2012.

Vero look to show how 3D printing can mix it up with mould design

The process of using 3D printed inserts for short run tooling is going to be on show at the Moulding Innovation event

The possibilities offered by 3D printing sometimes seem endless and futuristic, but Vero Software is hoping to show that in the here-and-now it can be used to bolster tooling options for manufacturers.

On 7 May it is holding the Moulding Innovation event, an educational seminar where it will show how 3D printing can be used to create production inserts for low batch tooling and also how 3D printing can be used to create more complex inserts with advanced conformal cooling circuits.

This will also come with practical help on how this can be simulated using flow analysis software, while industry suppliers will show off their latest technology and give views on the changes within the industry.

HP’s PageWide XL printers to print colour documents up to 60% faster than monochrome LED printers

Published 09 April 2015

Article tagged with: 3d printing, hp, printing, page wide

It’s not often we get excited about large format printing but HP’s new PageWide XL printers, which can print up 30 A1 colour prints per minute, look to be something rather special.

The new family of machines are the first CAD-focused printers to be based on HP’s PageWide Technology, an inkjet technology that prints from a scalable printhead across the entire page in a single pass.

Traditionally, inkjet printers have moved a smaller head back and forth across the page, so with the new technology one can appreciate just how it can deliver throughput ranging from 8 to 30 A1 documents per minute. Check out the video above to see this in action.

The HP OMEN Pro mobile workstation: HP’s brand new Dell Precision M3800 killer?

Published 09 April 2015

Article tagged with: amd, hp, quadro, cpu, mobile workstation

Not content with having four mobile workstations in its already packed portfolio, HP has now launched a fifth - the HP OMEN Pro Mobile Workstation, which looks set to go head to head with the Dell Precision M3800.

Based on the gaming laptop that came before it, the 15-inch HP OMEN Pro doesn’t look like your typical HP mobile workstation.

With sharp angles, a chassis CNC machined out of premium lightweight aluminium, the bold slimline design (19.9mm at the rear, 15.5 mm at the front) bears little resemblance to the HP ZBooks we know and love. But, despite its gaming origins, it will still offer certifications for leading CAD applications.
