- Three additional VJET X high-speed 3D printers were ordered recently: 1 VJET X unit in August 2020 and 2 VJET X units in September 2020
- The follow-up order comes as part of a frame contract concluded in 2018 between voxeljet, its partners and a leading German car maker. The first two VJET X units were ordered mid-2018. This follow-up order brings the current total to 5 VJET X units for this OEM
- The follow-up order reaffirms voxeljet’s message that its new 3D printers are making additive, serial production possible and cost efficient
- VJET X 3D printers are 10x faster than previous models, which results in a layering speed close to 5 seconds and are integrated into fully automated postprocessing solutions
- The 3D printers use an environmentally friendly inorganic binder system for zero emissions during core printing, storage and when using the sand cores in the casting process
FRIEDBERG, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–voxeljet AG (NASDAQ: VJET) (the “Company”, or “voxeljet”), a leading provider of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand parts services to industrial and commercial customers, today announced that it received the follow-up order for three additional units of its new high-speed 3D printer VJET X over the last two months. VJET X 3D printers are made for industrial production: they are 10x faster than previous models and integrated into fully automated postprocessing solutions. The follow-up order comes as part of a frame contract concluded in 2018 between voxeljet, its partners and a leading German car maker.
This follow-up order is a significant milestone in VJETs mission to bring 3D printing into high-volume, industrial production and reaffirms the Company’s message that its new 3D printers are making high volume industial production possible and cost efficient.
Dr. Ingo Ederer, founder and CEO of voxeljet commented: “With this order we reached a significant milestone in our mission to bring 3D printing into high-volume industrial production. This is extremely exciting, as it not only highlights the significance of our technology, but also the confidence this leading German car maker has in the new solution and the players behind it. Together with our partners, we can today offer a solution for the mass production of complex sand cores for light metal parts at, what we believe to be, a fraction of the costs as compared to other players in the additive manufacturing industry. With the new environmental-friendly binder system, there are zero emissions during the casting of the sand cores. The casted, complex light-metal parts can have superior characteristics, such as less weight and new features, and can ultimately help to reduce CO2 emissions substantially.”
voxeljet’ s (NASDAQ: VJET) roots reach back to the year 1995 with the first successful dosing of UV-resins. In the context of a “hidden” project, initial 3D-printing tests are performed at the Technical University Munich. Our company was founded on May 5, 1999 as a spin-off from TUM in Munich with a clear vision in mind: to establish a new manufacturing standard by developing new generative processes for the series-production of complex components using 3D printing. In the beginning, operations are launched with four employees at the TUM. Today, we are a globally acting, leading provider of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand 3D printed parts to industrial and commercial customers. Components manufactured with the help of our technology are flying in space, make mobility more efficient and the production of new engineering solutions possible.
