Nexa3D’s xCure Provides Optimal Curing of Photoplastics
Edited by AM Staff
Nexa3D’s xCure is an intelligent postprocessing curing system for optimal curing of all its photoplastic-based parts. The system is designed to consistently and rapidly unlock the full potential of 3D-printed parts at production scale, ensuring the delivery of desired mechanical properties both part to part and printer to printer.
The company says that xCure comes with prescribed postprocessing menus that consistently deliver validated workflows and consistent process controls, regardless of size or complexity, while ensuring dimensional accuracy, robust structural integrity and stronger molecular structures. The system is specifically designed for the NXE400 and boasts a large chamber size that readily accommodates parts as large as 16 L in volume with the ability to simultaneously fit three build plates and enables parts to be cured individually.
According to the company, xCure is simple and intuitive to operate with its single-click, rotate and push operation, offering maximum curing cycle efficiency and full-part surround coverage. With dual 365 Nm and 405 Nm wavelength LEDs and optional thermal curing, xCure delivers the full spectrum of Nexa3D’s resin curing coverage with validated resin-specific presets that are designed to ensure consistent part curing results print after print. Six strips provide 360 degrees of light and thermal coverage with a reflective interior for optimal uniformity and maximum functionality.
The right surface modification solution can alleviate a few common additive manufacturing pain points that typically require creating new molds or parts.
The biggest AM event gets bigger. The sophistication of attendees advances. Materials, digital tools and postprocessing are prominent. Here are 10 impressions of this year’s show.
When your metal part is done 3D printing, you just pull it out of the machine and start using it, right? Not even close.
