British 3D printer manufacturer RPS has launched the latest of the Neo stereolithography range, the Neo450 series.
Based on the proven Neo800, the compact Neo450 series has a 450 × 450 × 400mm platform and builds prototypes, rapid tooling and master patterns with exceptional surface quality, accuracy and detail. Designed for greater flexibility and versatility, the new series is available in two models with different performance and functionality depending on customer needs – the Neo450e and the Neo450s.
The Neo450e is an affordable industrial grade 3D printer producing small to medium parts with consistent accuracy and repeatability. Dependable and reliable, it is designed for non-stop printing of industrial production parts.
The Neo450s offers performance and versatility along with all the benefits of Neo450e. Producing superior quality parts, the Neo450s is up to 40% faster than the Neo450s and offers standard (SD) and high definition (HD) build modes. Supplied with a more powerful laser, three axis dynamic scanning system and advanced software algorithms, the Neo450s can quickly print SD or HD parts over the entire work area, all with outstanding accuracy and detail.
As the Neo450s offers SD and HD parts from one machine, it reduces the need to operate multiple SL systems with different functions. This in turn results in considerable savings in overheads and service costs.
David Storey, Director of RPS, says: “The Neo is a technically advanced product packed with great benefits and features, and significantly raises the bar and expectations within the field of SL printing. We developed the Neo 3D printer to drive forward and transform the expectations of stereolithography. Thankfully, gone are the days of hand finishing poor quality parts from fragile materials. Neo printed parts rival both the quality and accuracy of injection moulded parts directly from the printer.”
