Z Corporation 3D Printers
BUILDING PHYSICAL MODELS DIRECTLY FROM CAD DATA

 

 

Z Corporation 3D Printers help you build speed and efficiency into your design process and the highest quality into your products. The printers are professional, complete physical modeling solutions delivering full-color communication. What's more, they are fast, convenient and easy to operate, allowing you to accelerate the design process and get your products to market ahead of the competition.

You already know that speed is the most valuable element in the design and manufacturing process. Z Corp.'s 3D Printers deliver parts in 1-2 hours instead of days, fueling immediate feedback and decision making. This process acceleration will allow you to design and sell products more competitively.

Our full-color printing systems give your engineers a clearer window into the design process. Color conveys important information about parts, including engineering data, labeling, highlighting and appearance simulation. This functionality gives designers the data they need to create and collaborate more effectively throughout the design process.

Key Advantages of a Z Corp. 3D Printer

SPEED

The Z Corp. System is the fastest 3D Printer in the world.

Each layer is printed in seconds, reducing the time it takes to print a hand-held part to 1-2 hours.

COLOR

Z Corporation's 3D Printers can create parts from a full 24-bit palette of colors, resulting in multiple color prototypes. This functionality gives designers the data they need to create and collaborate more effectively throughout the design process. Color can be used to communicate important information including engineering data, labeling, highlighting and appearance simulation.

SIMPLICITY

The office compatible Z Corp. System is straightforward to operate, eliminating the need for a designated technician. The Z Corp. System is based on standard, off the shelf components developed for the ink jet printer industry resulting in a reliable, dependable 3D Printer.

VERSATILITY

Companies are using Z Corp. parts in every step of the design process for communication, design review and functional testing. The option of infiltrating parts offers customers the opportunity to produce parts with a variety of material properties to serve a range of modeling needs.

Equipment Weight: 470 lbs. (210 kg)
System Software: Z Corporation's proprietary System Software accepts solid models in STL, PLY, VRML (WRL) and SFX file formats as input. System Software runs on Microsoft Windows* 2000 and NT.
 

The ZCast Direct Metal Casting process provides the ability to produce cast metal parts from a CAD file significantly faster and less expensively than traditional prototype casting methods. The process involves printing molds and cores on a 3D Printer directly from digital data, eliminating the pattern and core box production step in the traditional sand casting process. Metal is then poured into the 3D printed molds. The technology allows engineers to prototype parts in metal that were previously cost and time prohibitive.

The ZCast Process guarantees:

bulletExtremely fast turnaround from CAD file to prototype metal part
bulletAbility to print complex molds and cores
bulletIn-house mold making capabilities for product manufacturers
bulletSimple metal pouring process for foundries
