Dp Polar Launches Latest Additive Mass Manufacturing 3d Printer Featuring Xaar Printheads

Industrial 3D printing manufacturer dp polar GmbH has again selected Xaar’s printheads to power the latest addition to their range, the AMpolar® i1, to be showcased at this year’s Formnext Show in Frankfurt, on 16-19th November.

The new compact AMpolar® i1 will be on display in Hall 12.1, stand E39. Visitors will be able to see how dp polar’s patented Additive Mass Manufacturing process uses Xaar 1003 printheads to jet parts at volume and deliver 3D printing on an industrial scale.

Dp polar designs develop and deliver industrial 3D printing systems and solutions for the automotive, aerospace, mechanical engineering, and consumer industries. It has worked with Xaar in the use of its printheads over several years. 

The AMpolar® i1 harnesses dp polar’s patented, highly productive single-pass printing process, enabling build volumes of up to 240 litres across its innovative continuously rotating print platform, with a build area of just under one square meter (10.3ft). In addition, layers of between 4-25µm can be put down, achieving resolutions of up to 720 x 720 x 5.000dpi.

This combination of scalability, productivity, and agility achieves an output that traditionally requires multiple conventional 3D machines and significantly more capital investment.

The AMpolar® i1 utilises the Xaar 1003, part of Xaar’s extensive printhead portfolio, which is proving invaluable in the industrialisation of 3D printing. The combination of speed, reliability, and capacity to jet various fluids at high viscosities enables jetting of liquids up to 100 centipoises (cP) in a single pass. Xaar’s Ultra High Viscosity Technology is key to realising this capability, opening access to an exciting range of new applications.

Florian Loebermann, dp polar’s Managing Director, said, “The AMpolar® i1 delivers all the production benefits of the AMpolar® i2, but at a scale and in a format that facilitates businesses in their early stages of exploring what is possible in mass production 3D printing.

“Xaar’s printheads have proved invaluable in unlocking the full potential of our systems, and the openness of the Xaar team to support our innovations is helping to establish 3D printing and Additive Mass Manufacturing as a practical reality in the volume production of parts for many industries.”

Gareth Neal, Xaar’s Customer Applications Manager, Advanced Applications, Technologies & Fluids, added, “The innovative and agile AMpolar® i1, firmly establishes the use of resin jetting as a truly practical and commercially viable manufacturing process.

“With Xaar’s range of printheads including our unique Ultra High Viscosity Technology providing the speed, flexibility and reliability demanded, functional inkjet applications have never been more accessible, affordable or productive.”
