Exciting 3D Printing Advances from Objet Attract EuroMold 2009 Attendees

Published November 23rd, 2009 - 03:21 GMT

Attendees of EuroMold 2009 will see a miniature sports car and a biorobotic snake designed and produced by customers of
Objet Geometries, the innovation leader in 3D printing. Presentations, courtesy of
Nimrod Racing and the Technion Institute, will take place every two hours throughout
the duration of the event, which will be held Dec 2-5 in Frankfurt, Germany (HALL
11, STAND C-92). EuroMold represents one of the world's leading forums for
moldmaking and tooling, design and application development.

Objet will also showcase several of its breakthrough 3D printers, all of which
create extremely durable, high-quality models with exceptional levels of detail and
clean, smooth surfaces. These systems include:

  --  Alaris30(TM), a first-of-its-kind, office-friendly, affordable 3D
      printer - small enough to fit on a desk - that creates first-class
      models at minimal cost, enabling more companies to enjoy the benefits
      of the technology. The system will also be showcased at the booth for
      CAD.de, the biggest online forum for German-speaking computer
  --  From the professional line, Eden family of 3D printers, Eden500V(TM)
      and Eden260V(TM). The Eden500V is an ideal Objet solution for
      large-size model requirements or when high productivity is vital. The
      Eden260V is a market-leading system for smaller offices and will be
      accessible at the adjacent booth of Objet's Germany-based partner,
  --  Released this June, Connex350(TM), the second in Objet's Connex
      family, which represents the world's only family of 3D printing
      systems that allows product developers and manufacturers to
      simultaneously print multiple materials with different mechanical and
      physical properties. Its predecessor, the Connex500(TM), the world's
      first multi-material 3D printer, won the EuroMold Innovation Award in
      2007. To convey details on the Connex350, Objet will offer
      presentations in German every two hours throughout the event.


"We are extremely proud to share our latest innovations in 3D printing with the
participants of this year's EuroMold event, and are especially pleased to be joined
by loyal Objet customers," said David Reis, CEO of Objet Geometries. "These systems
all cut significant time and spending from the product development process, offering
manufacturers and designers a distinct edge over the competition."

Objet systems utilize PolyJet(TM) and PolyJet Matrix(TM) Technology, which work by
jetting proprietary materials in ultra-thin layers, immediately curing each layer
with UV light. The process yields models that closely emulate the look, feel and
function of an exceptionally wide variety of end products.

Connex multi-material 3D printing systems offer specialized capabilities, which
Objet will demonstrate at EuroMold with a "just-released" digital materials pack.
This offering allows Connex users to combine materials for models that are more
suitable than ever for product-design testing, simulation and validation. It allows
for the creation of 18 new materials, which characterize a wide range of
rubber/elastomer based products, and can be used to print a wide variety of parts,
such as wires and cables, grips and handles, plugs and connections, shock absorbers,
function buttons, gaskets and seals, among other rubber applications.
