Admaflex 130
ceramic & metal 3D printer

Overview

Admaflex 130

Featuring the unique capability of 3D printing both advanced ceramics and metals on one system. This technology is ideal for the development and production of functional and aesthetical parts requiring complex geometries, high resolution, fine details, and smooth surface while benefiting from excellent material properties.

Feature

Patented feedstock system

The Admaflex 130 is designed to effectively handle materials with high viscosity, normally associated with ceramic slurries, enabling high reliability and printing speeds. This innovative system also enables efficient feedstock management by reusing the excess material. Our feedstock system is patented with US patent number 11,141,909. A very small amount of slurry is sufficient to start printing, which makes the system ideal for research and 3D printing of precious materials. 

Benefits

  • A safe and clean workplace, virtually no material waste
  • High throughput and productivity due to high reliability and high printing speed 
  • Easy material switch within a few minutes, without cross contamination
  • Working with a broad viscosity range

Feature

Modular concept

The Admaflex 130 printer is designed with a modular concept, to accommodate all future developments. You can choose the resolution and building volume that meet your needs. The machine is already prepared for upgrade with Vision based In-Process Monitoring and future Metal printing. Other options are higher power and higher resolution lightsources and preparations for environmental control.

Benefits

  • Custom to your needs and budget
  • Access to future upgrades, including Metal printing and Vision based Monitoring 
  • Best value for money

Feature

Open platform

The Admaflex 130 is an open system that comes as standard with a complete software which provides full control of the printing process. The Admaflex user interface allows you to slice the part, add support structures if needed, apply offsets, customize and optimize parameters before and during the printing process. Printjobs with settings can be prepared and stored on a centralized data server and sent to the printer via the standard Ethernet connection. For traceability of the printing process, logfiles are stored automatically. The machine opens up the opportunity to use commercial available materials and the flexibility to develop own materials. A unique standard software feature is the “multi-part printing”, that enables you to control light exposure settings for each individual layer and for each individual part, speeding up your development.

Benefits

  • Unlimited research and development freedom, open to the use all materials
  • Easy file preparation within the Admaflex user interface (no need for an external PC with slicing software license)
  • Full Access to all advanced process parameters, including Tuning them during the printjob (at no additional cost)
  • Increased efficiency with “multi-part printing” at no additional cost
  • Twice per year you receive the latest software including all new features

Feature

Add on for metal printing

The Admaflex 130 3D printer can be upgraded with a patented feedstock system for printing metals and other heavy powders. The add on for metal printing overcomes the sedimentation problem of higher density materials. This puts the Admaflex 130 as the world's first stereo lithography based 3D printer to print metals.

Benefits

  • Ceramic and metal printing on one single machine
  • Delivering metal products with full density and no residual stresses
  • Providing aesthetical and precious metal products with high resolution

Feature

In-process monitoring system 

The vision-based in-process quality monitoring system is an excellent feature for full traceability of the printing process. All relevant production data are stored in logfiles with documented proof of the printing process. Real-time video capture and time-lapse recording are standard features of the monitoring system. It allows the user for example to partially stop adding layers to a defected product to allow the successful finalization of all remaining parts. When the Admaflex machine is connected via Ethernet to your company network, via any laptop or desktop PC, you can have remote access to the machine and monitor the process realtime. 

Benefits

  • Realtime process monitoring for full traceability
  • Enhanced usability with remote live video transmission with remote pause function
  • Receive warnings and pause the print automatically when a problem is detected
  • Increased throughput and efficiency
