Concord, USA – RIZE Inc, an Additive Manufacturing 2.0 company, has shipped the RIZE 7XC large format 3D printer to help manufacturers ensure they have agile supply chains to support them in the new normal – safely, sustainably, and affordably. It was developed jointly with Sindoh Co, Ltd, and has a massive build size of up to 370mm x 390mm x 450mm. It leverages Sindoh’s 7X large-format dual-nozzle 3D printing platform and supported materials, along with RIZE’s innovative RIZIUM composite materials including RIZIUM Glass Fiber and RIZIUM Carbon Fiber. The printer provides teams with an affordable way to produce parts with high tensile strength and thermal dimensional stability, as well as chemical and moisture resistance, by enabling the rapid production of large parts and complex geometries on demand, much faster and at a lower cost than molding, milling, and casting.
The RIZE 7XC is the fourth member of the company’s family of safe, affordable 3D printers, built with the company’s hallmark health and safety commitment, for printing anywhere without ventilation, yet with a Z-resolution of 50 microns that enables demanding geometries and superior surface finishes. Its composite-enhanced dual extruders provide a Z-resolution of 50 microns, which is ideal for challenging geometries, as well as a superior surface finish. Active auto-leveling and internal insulation contribute to superior mechanical properties, while the company's adherence to sustainability means minimal post-processing, with supports that peel away quickly and efficiently without the use of chemicals or tools. The RIZE 7XC is the RIZIUM Alliance's second deliverable, where other 3D printing industry partners can implement safer, sustainable, recyclable 3D printing on a range of platforms, including the RIZE 7XC and the smaller size, color-compatible RIZE 2XC.
“Sindoh is delighted to partner with RIZE to apply the company’s innovative materials and technologies to our proven 7X large-format 3D printing platform,” said Osung Kwon, COO, Sindoh Co, Ltd. “Organizations are ready to apply additive manufacturing techniques when small runs require strong, highly durable parts. Thanks to our cooperative R&D efforts, the new RIZE 7XC makes large-scale additive manufacturing even simpler, more sustainable and cost-effective.”
Speaking about RIZE 7XC’s capability, Andy Kalambi, CEO, RIZE, added, “Finally manufacturers can apply the promise of additive manufacturing to creating agile and distributed supply chains where the ability to generate a needed part, tool, jig or fixture takes a fraction of the time of traditional processes.”
