INDUSTRIAL 3D PRINTER ALTERNATIVE
Until now, owning an industrial 3D printer required an initial capital outlay of $50,000 to $100,000. In addition, expect between $5,000 to $10,000 of annual expense for service contracts and a limited selection of expensive 3D printing materials for upwards of $200 per kilogram that otherwise would be purchased on the open market for $25 to $100 per kilogram, depending on the type of material.
Few businesses and educational institutions can afford a single industrial 3D printer at this price, much less be able to purchase additional 3D printers to expand their capacity for multiple users.
The Fusion3 EDGE, the affordable alternative to expensive industrial 3D printers, delivers or exceeds most of the capabilities of industrial 3D printers at a fraction of the price.
Affordable Industrial-Grade 3D Printer
Fusion3 EDGE 3D Printer – Perfect for Every Industrial Application:
PROTOTYPING & DESIGN
The Fusion3 EDGE helps companies accelerate product development, producing conceptual models and/or functional prototypes, more quickly and inexpensively than traditional methods.
Manufacturers using the Fusion3 EDGE have an affordable alternative for low-rate / short-run / low volume production of plastic parts. Companies can implement 3D Printers in a production role, with lower up-front tooling cost and reduced lead times.
TOOLINGS, JIGS & FIXTURES
Instead of spending thousands of dollars and waiting 4-6 weeks for CNC milled aluminum fixtures, companies using the Fusion3 EDGE can quickly and inexpensively print and iterate your toolings, jigs and fixtures.
Features That Exceed Expensive Industrial 3D Printers
Exceptional 3D Print Quality At High Speed
The Fusion3 EDGE industrial 3D printer’s patented ‘F-Series’ motion control technology enables printing of high-quality objects at layer heights as low as .02mm and speeds up to 250mm/sec. The Fusion3 EDGE allows for 20-30% faster printing compared to the competition in the EDGE’s price range. Your team operating industrial production workstations will spend less time waiting and more time designing, testing and using their finished parts.
Durable & Reliable 3D Printing
EDGE has been engineered to be increasingly robust and durable with a new linear rail system, our V3 extruder, and push-to-fit connectors for our Bowden tube system to make servicing the filament path easier. Unlike consumer printers, the EDGE industrial 3D printer withstands use and abuse in production environments and if you have an issue, you’re protected by the longest warranty in the industry.
Large Print Volume
Featuring a large 1.64 cubic foot print volume (14″x14″x14.5″), EDGE empowers users to print their large projects in one piece, saving time and frustration. Companies get the benefit of increased throughput, combining multiple parts into one print job.
Widest Variety of Engineering-Grade Plastics
Our ‘open material’ philosophy provides Fusion3 industrial customers with the widest variety of 3D printing plastics on the market from many quality manufacturers of filament. EDGE’s enclosed, stable temperature environment and proprietary multi-zone heated print bed makes EDGE the ideal platform for manufacturing parts with high temperature and high strength requirements using engineering-grade materials.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
INDUSTRIAL 3D PRINTERS
What types of industries are using 3D printers?
How fast should an industrial 3D printer print?
A reliable industrial 3D printer should print with at least 150 mm/sec. Fusion3’s EDGE comes with 250 mm/sec printing speed, making it one of the fastest 3D printers in its price range.
