Density 2021 offers a number of improvements that makes finishing parts 3D-printed with powder bed technology more ergonomic for the user
Wematter is launching Density 2021, an improved model of their 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, creating a brighter and clearer work environment. Additionally, the machinery that cleans the window glass is now encapsulated. This makes the machine significantly quieter and more robust during operation.
A specially-adapted ventilation system has been installed to lower the humidity in the chamber, create a healthier climate, and reduce the risk of bacterial growth. For times when a print has been cleaned with water and needs to be tested quickly, you can now use compressed air to blow off excess powder and speed up the drying process. This can also be used to check for remaining powder 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. These 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 for a brighter build chamber
- New mechanics for cleaning the window, which provide lower noise levels
- New ventilation system that lowers 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, Inertia, is introduced for Wematter’s fleet of machines
Along with the new 2021 models of Gravity and Density, Wematter is launching a powder collector called the Inertia. The Inertia recycles used powder and cleans the Gravity’s build chamber. The powder is stored in sealed bags, which are then sent to Wematter’s office for processing. The material is then reused.
Wematter manufactures advanced office-sized selective laser sintering 3D printers. The company exists to accelerate the move towards additive manufacturing by lowering barriers to entry. Its innovative 3D-printing SLS technology lets companies quickly prototype ideas, which increases overall design and engineering efficiency.
Wematter’s Nordic roots suffuse the company’s creative cycle. The team focuses on balancing user experience, ease of use, sustainability, and performance in all of its activities. The resulting quality and reliability are testaments to not just a client focus but to corporate responsibility in the face of a changing environment and industrial landscape.
Wematter attracts top customers like Siemens, Volvo, and Husqvarna. The company was founded by design engineers working with FDM SLA and FDM 3D printers, injection molding, and CNC-milling. Since its inception in 2014, Wematter has delivered 3D printers and 3D-printed components to car manufacturers, hospitals, and aerospace clients.
