New 'ZBuilder Ultra' rapid prototype machine

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Z Corporation has introduced a rapid prototyping machine which it claims can build high-end functional prototypes at one third of the price of machines with comparable performance.

According to Z Corporation, the ZBuilder Ultra costs a fraction of the price of a stereolithography machine and builds durable plastic parts that rival injection moulding's accuracy, material properties, detail, and surface finish. It has been designed to enable engineers to verify designs for form, fit, and function prior to full scale production.

The ZBuilder Ultra builds 3d parts additively using a high resolution digital light processor (DLP) projector to solidify a liquid photopolymer.

"ZBuilder is the ideal addition to our product line, enabling customers to streamline the entire product development cycle," said Z Corporation ceo, John Kawola. "For concept and mid-stage modelling when you need speed, low cost, and visual appeal, our ZPrinters are the fastest and only colour 3d printers on the market. And when the material properties of a part are important for final design verification, the affordable ZBuilder delivers parts that rival injection moulding. Bottom line engineers now have a single source for the best design technologies."

The ZBuilder Ultra will be available in July through Z Corporation's worldwide reseller network.
