This edition of Sliced, our 3D printing news digest, features new 3D printers, innovative 3D printed edibles, ergonomic designs, and more.

A Shenzhen-based 3D printer manufacturer, Panda3D, has built a full metal body SLA 3D printer called Paladin. The printer has 50μm XY resolution and a printing area of 15x13x73 cm. In addition to this, the printer is equipped with smart functions such as auto bed-leveling and auto resin refilling system. The 3D printer will be commercially available in April 2019.

The Brandenburg University of Technology has acquired a Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) 3D printer by LUNOVU, a German laser systems manufacturer. LMD is a variation of Directed Energy Deposition technology. It uses a laser beam to melt the input material, which is usually a metal wire. This 3D printing method is generally used in aerospace and automotive manufacturing and is particularly helpful in repairing damaged or worn out metal parts.

Professor Markus Bambach, Chair for mechanical design and manufacturing, said, “A major target of our research activities is the local engineering of materials and parts […] Therefore, it was crucial to procure an LMD system which is reliable and easy to be operated. At the same time, we also looked for a flexible system that can be easily extended according to future research requirements. Even special features could be implemented by Lunovu, such as the integration of a laser cutting module. This will help us to develop local reinforcements on sheet metal blanks.”

ARBURG, a German 3D printer and injection molding systems manufacturer, will be exhibiting its multi-material and multi-color freeformer 3D printers at TCT Asia (21-23 February). The freeformer has two models 200-3X and 300-3X. The 300-3X is 50% larger than its predecessor. Both printers use ARBURG Plastic freeforming (APF) technology and can build a model...
