Divide By Zero (DBZ), a manufacturer of industrial-grade 3D printers has recently launched the AION500 MK3, at the
Automotive Engineering Show in Chennai. This machine is claimed by the company
to be 10 times faster than others in the competition.
Swapnil Sansare, Founder & CEO, expressed,
“3D printing technology has been in the industry for the past 30 years and we
all are fascinated by its potential, however, speed has been a drawback—until
today. AION500 MK3 is thrice faster than conventional CNC machines. The
printing speed is 10 times more than any polymer extrusion-based platform
anywhere in the world. Basically, you can now print the anatomical model of a
human skull in minutes. Companies need not wait for a week for their orders
when they can have it in mere hours. The ROI for this machine is barely four
Powered with company’s revolutionary patented
AFPM technology, AION500 MK3 can print faster than any 3D printer without losing
on mechanical properties of surface finish and accuracy. DBZ, over the years of
research has developed a high-speed, high throughput 3D printing solution which
is built to revolutionise the industry worldwide and overcome the barriers of
speed, time and cost. Some of its features are that of the printer generates 1.5G acceleration on servo gantry, 1.5m/s travel speed, dual
drive liquid cooled print head, and 10-micron positional accuracy.
According to the company, another unexplored
arena is the demand for customised jigs and fixtures. 3D printing has the
potential of radically changing the face of on-demand JIG-Fixture manufacturing
but due to the concerns over speed, strength, and affordability, the industry
wasn’t able to reap the benefits. The new 3D printer is has the power to
complete the old school 3D printing and makes rapid prototyping rapid.
DBZ in India has presence across sectors like automotive,
FMCG, jigs and fixtures manufacturers, defence, government institutions and education
institutes. As the new product is affordable and adheres to international
quality standards, it has around 600 installations all across the country and is
one of the leading exporters of 3D printers.
