El Technological Institute of Toy has just announced the acquisition of a very novel 3D printing technology with which they will now be able to create prototypes with up to 6 different materials that can simulate the behavior of different thermoplastics on the market and even 365.000 colors which, in turn, will help to achieve great realism in all the prototypes manufactured using this system.
This technology, currently unique in Spain, has been introduced in the new 3D printer Stratasys J750, a model capable of working with photosensitive acrylic resins that offer a very similar appearance to plastic. In turn, the pieces are created from a layer thickness of only 14 microns, which allows a very high level of surface detail of each piece. The result of all this technology is a piece for which you will not have to use any type of mold, just the corresponding 3D CAD file.
The Institute of Toy Technology acquires a Stratasys J750.
If you are a follower of Stratasys and know all its news, you will surely know that, in addition to being able to work with different colors, the printer acquired by the Toy Technological Institute, the J750, stands out for offering a fast and efficient workflow which translates, according to the manufacturer itself, in being able to achieve savings of 71% in costs and up to 90% in time, something that will significantly influence delivery times.
Without a doubt, it must be recognized that the Toy Technological Institute has made an investment that will surely be quite fruitful since we are talking about a market sector where the size of the toys is not too high but the colors are usually very abundant. As commented Nacho sandoval, Technical Engineer from the Toy Technological Institute:
The use of this 3D printer and the creation of prototypes can be very useful for any company that has a product development department, either to check technical, design, marketing, consumer preferences or tastes in a much more important way. effective.
