Wematter launches improved water-jet cabinet for 3D-prints with faster powder removal

Density 2021 offers a number of improvements that make the finishing of parts 3D-printed with powder bed technology more ergonomic for the user

Wematter launches Density 2021, an improved model of the successful SLS 3D-printing water-jet cabinet, formerly known as the BlasThing Cabinet. The cleaning chamber now has a white interior and more light sources. Together these create a brighter and clearer work environment. In addition to this, the mechanics that clean the window glass are now encapsulated. This makes the machine significantly quieter and more robust during operation.

To lower the humidity in the chamber, create a healthier climate, and reduce the risk of bacterial growth, a specially adapted ventilation system has been installed. For times when a print has been cleaned with water and needs to be tested quickly, it is now also possible to use compressed air to blow off excess powder and speed up the drying process. This method can also be used to check if powder remains after cleaning or to clear out cavities in a safe environment.

“The new Density gives users better ergonomics and an improved work environment. The user will be able to clean the parts faster and make their prints ready to use immediately. The improvements take Density to a whole new level”, says founder and CEO Robert Kniola.

Some of the new features in Density 2021

  • Three times as many light sources with a more natural light flow for more even lighting and a clearer environment
  • White walls that make the inside of the chamber brighter
  • New mechanics, for cleaning the window, which provide lower noise levels
  • New ventilation system that lowers the humidity in the chamber
  • Compact design that reduces the height by 12 centimeters
  • Drip stop that collects water under the coarse filter during filter changes
  • Possibility to use compressed air to dry prints faster
  • Improved water circulation system which provides better water flow during operation

A new powder recycling system with Inertia is introduced for Wematter’s machine fleet

In connection with the new 2021 models of Gravity and Density, a powder collector called Inertia is launched. Inertia is used for recycling used powder and cleaning the inside of Gravity. The powder is stored in sealed bags which are then sent to Wematter’s office for processing and then reused.
