Azul 3D launches the OCEAN 3D printer on the market

Azul 3D, a 3D printing startup, has unveiled its new 3D printing platform, OCEAN. The OCEAN platform offers an impressive build area of 812 mm x 812 mm and utilizes Azul 3D’s proprietary modular HARP technology.

HARP (High-Area Rapid Printing) technology utilizes a fluid interface that remains molecularly flat during the printing process, enabling high precision across the entire build area. This architecture actively removes the heat generated during curing, resulting in thermal consistency and process stability during mass production. With a modular optical system, OCEAN ensures a resolution of 72 micrometers and the intensive digital light projection (DLP) of its predecessor LAKE.

“Our strategy is to empower the future of digital manufacturing,” said John Hartner, CEO of Azul 3D. “The OCEAN platform is a new-to-industry capability, with the opportunity to enable new high-volume products and supply chains.”

Special attention is paid to applications in the field of clean technologies. Printed structures from the OCEAN platform offer new opportunities to improve the performance of large-scale filters and membranes for CO2 capture and water treatment. In collaboration with Dr. Devin Roach of Oregon State University, Azul 3D is exploring the application of functional coatings on printed surfaces, including novel carbon sorbents developed by the Nyman research group at Oregon State.

With the OCEAN platform, Azul 3D is opening the door to new partnerships with industry leaders who want to use these advanced capabilities to transform their own markets.
