Upscaling LMM technology to target mass manufacturing.
Incus, the Austrian 3D printer manufacturer specializing in Lithography-based Metal Manufacturing (LMM), is going to introduce the new Hammer Pro40 printing solution at the upcoming Formnext 2023 show. The new system was developed to upscale LMM technology targeting mass manufacturing.
“The Hammer Pro40 was strategically developed to fulfill the growing demand for mass manufacturing with AM while still delivering the unique features of our technology,” emphasized Incus CEO, Dr. Gerald Mitteramskogler. “This innovation means a leap forward in terms of speed, precision, and cost-effectiveness, but it also opens up new opportunities to leverage the versatility of our manufacturing solution. Within a single print, you can create intricate medical gripping devices, patient-specific dental brackets, personalized jewelry pieces, prototypes for electronic devices, and customized automotive knobs for luxury interior designs – all in quantities ranging from single prototypes to mass manufacturing.”
Building on the principles of the Hammer Lab35 printing system, the Hammer Pro40 allows an upgrade of the production capabilities, while maintaining the same level of expertise and familiarity with the technology. The larger build volume is achieved by integrating two moving or scrolling projectors, instead of one stationary projector, without loss of accuracy.
With a platform six times larger than its smaller predecessor, the Hammer Lab35, the Hammer Pro40 bridges the gap to mass manufacturing. With a throughput of up to 700cm³/hour and a resolution with a pixel pitch of 40µm in X/Y, the Hammer Pro40 enables optimized print economics while delivering the complex geometries and surface aesthetics of the Incus technology.
