Unimatic Engineers is announcing that it is now supplying the Objet Geometries Eden250 three-dimensional printing system. The Eden250 leverages Objet's market-proven Eden platform to bring high-quality, highly accurate rapid prototyping capabilities within the reach of virtually any design or manufacturing operation in a wide range of fields. Its combination of office-friendly design, advanced capabilities and affordable price make the Eden250 suitable for virtually any organisation, including machine builders, consumer products designers, and those in the electronics, medical devices and fashion accessory sectors, along with academic institutions and small businesses. Even schools can now consider Objet technology.

Like all Eden printing systems, the Eden250 is based on Objet's innovative PolyJet technology, which enables horizontal layers as thin as 16microns, exceptionally fine details, ultra-thin walls down to 0.6mm, and high accuracy, with a typical tolerance of just 0.1mm. The Eden250 uses a completely clean process that is excellent for standard office-type environments – with no special electrical, ventilation, or material storage requirements. It is priced far below competing high-quality systems, so is cost-effective for building models and parts that are exceptionally smooth and durable, with fine details and an outstanding surface finish.

"The Eden250 extends the benefits of cost-effective, high-quality in-house three-dimensional printing to a wide range of organisations that previously had to settle for lower quality or outsourced models," says Adina Shorr, CEO of Objet Geometries. "With the launch of this new system, Objet now offers a complete range of 3-D printers, providing an answer for virtually any application, workflow and budget."

Cost-effective versatility

With a 250 x 250 x 200mm build size, the new Eden250 enables the construction of a single large model in one cost-effective, time-saving build, eliminating time-consuming joining and gluing, or multiple smaller models.

A choice of High Quality or High Speed printing modes enables the user to optimise the printing process according to the specific quality and timing requirements of each individual application. High Quality mode prints 16micron layers with a resolution of 600 (X) by 300 (Y) dpi. High Speed prints 30micron layers at the same resolution.

With dual material cartridges, each holding 2kg of material, the Eden250 is designed for high productivity with a low level of operator intervention. The PolyLog materials management system ensures optimal material usage. All FullCure and Vero material cartridges are easily installed and removed through a front-loading door. With clean, no-contact material handling, and no special power or operating requirements, the Eden250 – like all Objet systems – is excellent for use in office environments.

Extensive choice of materials

The Eden250 supports four different model materials: FullCure 720 transparent, VeroBlue, VeroWhite and VeroBlack. The system also supports the universal FullCure Support material. This wide choice of materials enables a broad range of applications as it means users can produce models and parts with varying properties, in terms of flexibility, elongation at break, and colour. The same high accuracy, detail and surface quality are attained regardless of material choice.
