In India, Arrow Digital is the exclusive distributor of Massivit 3D equipment. The machines have not yet sale in India, but they may be seen in operation at the Arrow Digital demo centre in Ahmedabad. Massivit 3D Printing Technologies, a provider of large-scale 3D printing systems, will showcase the industrial-grade Massivit 5000 3D printer at the upcoming RAPID + TCT show in Detroit, Michigan between 17 -19 May 2022. Visitors to Massivit 3D’s stand 3613 will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of the Massivit 5000 which offers 30 times the printing speed of competitive 3D printing solutions. A range of large, printed parts, molds, and prototypes will also be on display.

The Massivit 5000 large-scale 3D printer is designed to expedite lead times for manufacturers across the rail, marine, automotive, defense, architecture, scenic fabrication, and education sectors. It offers a build volume of 57” x 44” x 70” (145cm x 111cm x 180cm) and empowers manufacturers to produce full-scale parts within a matter of hours.

Massivit 3D’s adoption across the world

The Massivit 5000 leverages Massivit 3D’s unique gel dispensing printing (GDP) technology that has, to date, been adopted in over 40 countries. GDP utilizes the company’s advanced photo polymer printing gel, Dimengel, that cures on-the-fly under UV light. This enables high-speed production of large, complex parts with little-to-no required support structures.

The 5000 offers sophisticated, integrated slicing software for automated file preparation as well as a range of features designed to increase workflow efficiencies. Its dual-head printing mechanism allows two independent parts to be printed simultaneously, with the capability to use a different material on each head. The Massivit 5000 offers a range of print resolutions and modes including Variable Resolution mode. It also supports a wide range of purpose-specific printing materials. One of the most recently launched materials, Dim 20-FR, is the world’s first UL94-V0 compliant 3D printing thermoset gel, offering flame retardance.

RAPID + TCT visitors will have the chance to explore customer case studies as well as a range of large-scale 3D printing applications at the Massivit 3D stand. At the show, the company will also share news of the Massivit 10000 additive tooling system for composite materials, recently launched at the JEC World 2022 composite materials event in Paris on 3 May 2022.

Innovations at Massivit 3D

Aiming to drive digital transformation in the composites arena, Massivit 3D designed this additive manufacturing system to overcome recognized bottlenecks in composite materials manufacturing. Based on the company’s new cast in-motion technology, the system enables direct printing of complex molds using high-performance casting materials.

The technology shortens tooling production time by 80%, reduces costs, and decreases material waste associated with traditional tooling methods – which are known to be slow, costly, and wasteful. In addition to facilitating direct printing of molds, the Massivit 10000 enables fast production of complex prototypes, mandrels, and plugs.

The introduction of the 10000 to the market has already yielded strong demand across multiple industries, reflected in the signing of 12 new reservations during the JEC World show last week. In total, 29 reservations have been made for the new Massivit 10000 – which will be delivered in H2, 2022.

Erez Zimerman, chief executive officer at Massivit 3D, commented “we are excited to share the latest large-scale 3D printing technologies and applications with the manufacturing community at Rapid + TCT. Massivit 3D was established to solve fundamental AM limitations in size, speed and material versatility. We are honored to be introducing our latest technology, high-performance materials, and large-scale applications that will propel global manufacturing from traditional, manual processes into the digital age.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
