3D Printer Receives Custom LED System


The Perfactory 3D printer, now in its fourth generation, now has a custom LED light system. In development for more than a year, the LED system is more powerful and efficient than other light projector systems on the market. As such, it offers a variety of benefits, such as lower operating costs and crisper black-white contrast between pixels, which means even better final part detail.


Prior to this product enhancement, the P4 line of 3D printers already offered the highest accuracy and best resolution in the vat photopolymerization market. The P4 LED Standard XL offers a build envelope of 192 x 120 x 180 or 230 mm (7.6 x 4.7 x 7.09 or 9.06 in.) with XY accuracy of 100 μm (0.0039 in.). The P4 LED Mini offers XY resolution as low as 10 μm (0.0004 in) with an adjustable Z resolution ranging from 15 to 150 μm.


With the custom LED system, the P4 line now comes standard with the most powerful and cost-efficient light source, too. The average cost per hour of the P4’s outgoing ultra-high-performance (UHP) lamp, which uses high-pressure mercury gas to emit light, was $2.90, with an estimated life of 500 hours. By contrast, the new LED system will cost an average of $0.50 per hour, lasting an estimated 10,000 hours.
