24/7 production of small, ultra-high resolution end-use parts
The P4K is the opposite of other, one-size-fits-all 3D printing solutions. With a range of models available, users can choose their optical configuration based on part size, feature-size requirements and throughput, and tailor a solution that best suits their needs. With resolutions of between 23µm-90µm on the X and Y axes, the P4K can easily produce detailed parts in a range of sizes.
Designed for a 24/7 production environment, the P4K can run lights-out, with little to no user intervention required. Easily print parts at volume with the quality, surface finish and tolerances needed for end-use applications
The P4K Key Features
With resolutions of between 23µm-90µm on the X and Y axes, the P4K can easily produce detailed parts in sizes ranging from just 2mm – smaller than two grains of sand – to 230mm – about the size of 3 credit cards stacked end to end.
The P4K comes in four distinct models, each utilizing a 4K projector. Distributing these pixels across four differently-sized build plates allows for four different native pixel sizes (XY resolution); 35,62,75, and 90 um.
In addition to its native high resolution options, the P4K takes advantage of many additional features to further improve accuracy. The use of industrial DLP chips, as opposed to cheaper consumer-grade chips, and a custom-designed optical train deliver high contrast and minimal distortion in the projected picture, resulting in accuracy down to the micron level.
Designed for a 24/7 production environment, the P4K offers the ability to run lights-out, with little to no user intervention required. Easily print parts at volume with the quality, surface finish and tolerances needed for end-use applications.
The P4K allows you to take control of your manufacturing workflow with automated job queuing, managed by an onboard processor and hard drive, and automated job completion alerts to help minimize printer downtime. To further limit downtime, the build plate can be quickly swapped, allowing a new job to be started minutes after a print is completed.
Powered by ETEC’s software, the P4K is perfect for remotely-managed enterprise use. Send jobs to multiple machines around the globe through a dashboard and easily monitor printing progress, job status, layer count and more. With excellent reliability the P4K is designed to run lights-out.
Easy to Use
Designed for ease-of-use, the P4K features intuitive software and easy material changes, allowing users to focus more on creating optimized parts and less time on managing their hardware.
User-friendly Envision One RP software automates all parts of the printing process, including support generation and part orientation, while a fully-integrated file repair tool patches mesh holes and readies parts for print. Easy, over-the-air updates for both software and firmware ensure users have access to the most up-to-date tools and print processes.
Easy material changes in less than two minutes allow users to produce a wide variety of parts with properties tailored to different applications, and excess material can be stored for months, helping users achieve further cost efficiencies.
Wide Material Compatability
The P4K has a material for every application, from ultra-high resolution hard plastics, to FDA-cleared dental materials, to castable waxes for jewelry.
Thanks to the P4K’s DLP chip, the printer is capable of efficiently printing a wide variety of materials. No matter what the application is; the P4K can print a material with the required properties. Unlike some competitive resin systems, shelf life of unused material is never a concern as any uncured resin can be easily stored and reused for months, enabling economic material usage.
