Polish 3D printers manufacturer Zmorph has unveiled a new addition to its 3D printer portfolio, Zmorph Fab, and revealed plans to release the Zmorph i500 industrial 3D printer in Q1, 2021.
The Zmorph Fab is the company's most advanced and easy-to-use all-in-one desktop 3D printer, and a successor to the well-known ZMorph VX. Zmorph Fab features an interchangeable toolhead system that allows 3D printing, CNC milling and laser engraving and cutting with the same device.
Eliza Wróbel, Product Manager, explains: “Zmorph Fab is made to be easy-to-use and reliable. The latter is crucial for a product that operates three different workflows and is meant to work 24/7. The new features are based on customer and business partner feedback. With features such as HEPA/Fumes Filter, Zmorph Fab is a great addition to modern classrooms, FabLabs, workshops, and design labs.”
New single extruder toolhead
The new Single Extruder Toolhead delivers faster prints with best quality. The new extruder gains motion sensors for filament detection. It’s now easier to feed the filament, and the machine will stop once it runs out of the material and wait for the user to feed the next spool of filament. The redesigned cooling fan improves the air flow, which allows faster overhangs 3D printing.
Zmorph Fab features an expanded CNC workflow. Starting from the new CNC worktable that was designed to allow easy and very stable material mounting (and is open for custom designs), to refurbished Voxelizer with CAM-standard workflow for CNC procedures with STEP operations, ability to change the tool within one G-code, and path visualisation.
Due to the demand for educational standards and user safety, the new Zmorph Fab is equipped with HEPA/carbon filtration system, which is optional for the users. The air filtration process makes it safer and cleaner to work with materials producing semi-toxic fumes and particles, such as ABS or fumes created during laser engraving.
Zmorph Fab detects which toolhead is installed with a SMART Toolheads System. Toolhead changing is now easier than ever before, which cuts down the time spent on workflow switching.
Last but not least, the new machine is equipped with industrial-grade electronics, meaning that it is a desktop 3D printer, but with the heart of a professional industrial machine
In Q1 2021, the company plans to launch Zmorph i500. This new workbench 3D printer for the professional and industrial markets includes a huge work area, single & dual extrusion 3D printing and a competitive quality-to-price ratio. The company is promising to deliver a full ecosystem. Alongside the machine, it has re-developed its slicer software and on-machine firmware. It is also in the process of acquiring a 3D filament manufacturer, to ensure even more predictable delivery from Zmorph i500.
