Quandum Aerospace, a Spanish manufacturer of optoelectronic and electronic systems aimed for aerospace, medical, and energy markets, is a long-time user of Zortrax 3D printers and was one of the first to test the Zortrax Powerful Trio – a brand new resin 3D printing ecosystem comprising the Inkspire 2 UV LCD 3D printer as well as Zortrax Cleaning Station and Zortrax Curing Station post-processing devices.
Quandum Aerospace used Zortrax Inkspire 2 UV LCD 3D printer along with Zortrax Cleaning Station and Zortrax Curing Station to make medical device components ordered by one of their clients.
“We’ve been working with this system for a month and I can say with confidence that this is one of the best 3D printing solutions Zortrax has ever created. It is simple to operate, fast, incredibly precise and reliable. Its capability to efficiently handle high-end resins is invaluable. Such materials have the potential to become a viable alternative for high-performance FDM polymers in aerospace, medical, and military applications.”, says Rafael Rodríguez Rosas, Chief Technology Officer at Quandum.
Quandum’s team found the Zortrax Powerful Trio to be fast, easy to use and efficient. According to them, the Zortrax Inkspire 2 3D printer, Zortrax Curing Station, and Zortrax Cleaning Station are “amazingly designed”, complement each other perfectly, and can support constant, intensive workloads in a high-tech manufacturing company. The team concluded that the Zortrax Inkspire 2 was perfect for fabricating large prototypes and short-series manufacturing. They stated that the machine was easy to clean and maintain in perfect working condition.
Other features highlighted by them included factory-calibration of the build platform, and the resin control system which made it possible to build fairly large parts. Zortrax Cleaning Station was appreciated for its automation, especially for elevating the models of the cleaning fluid after the cleaning process is done. Zortrax Curing Station, the last link in the resin 3D printing chain, was also found to be simple and easy to use. Each curing session took only a few minutes. Since the correct post-curing time is indicated in Z-SUITE software, there was no confusion as to choosing the right settings.
“Feedback on the Zortrax Powerful Trio we get from Quandum and many others is very encouraging to say the least. Users like this new lineup, find it efficient, rock-solid, and easy to work with. That’s what we aimed for. Now we know that’s what we delivered.”, says Mariusz Babula, CEO of Zortrax.
Zortrax Inkspire 2 UV LCD 3D printer, Zortrax Cleaning Station and Zortrax Curing Station have been released in the middle of September and are available at Zortrax Online Store and local Zortrax Resellers.
