Tangible Engineering will launch the Solidator 8K, an ultra-high-speed printer, at Formnext 2023.


Introducing the Solidator 8K Resin 3D Printer: Revolutionizing Mass Production

German-based company Tangible Engineering GmbH is set to unveil their latest innovation at this year’s Formnext 2023 event – the Solidator 8K Resin 3D Printer. This cutting-edge industrial-grade printer promises to transform the world of 3D printing with its ultra-fast production capabilities and unmatched 8K resolution.

One of the standout features of the Solidator 3D printer is its incredibly high production rate of 9157 cubic centimeters per hour. This unprecedented speed, combined with its generous build volume of 330x185x400 millimeters, makes the Solidator a game-changer for mass production. It bridges the gap between prototyping and series production, offering a cost-effective solution for manufacturing end-use parts.

With the Solidator 8K, the possibility of creating digital warehouses becomes a reality. Products can be manufactured on-demand, close to their point of need, revolutionizing supply chains and reducing costs. Tim Fischer, Managing Director at Tangible Engineering, enthuses about the printer’s capabilities, stating, “We can now produce parts for our push-to-open mechanism in an impressive 17 seconds per part or, for example, a Lego brick in 5 seconds. These scales were previously unattainable.”

In addition to its speed and production capabilities, Tangible Engineering offers a diverse material portfolio for use with the Solidator 8K. Their selection includes 19 different types of resins, catering to a wide range of industries, from automotive to dental. Specialty polymers such as ESD resin, ceramic composites, and shape memory resin are part of this selection, alongside ultra-tough and industrial high-temperature materials.

The Solidator 8K sets itself apart from other printers with its automatic refill system, which ensures a continuous workflow, minimizing downtime. The machine’s reliability and consistent print quality make it ideal for large-scale production.

The printer’s 8K resolution is truly impressive, offering a fine detail depth of 43 micrometers – comparable to the thickness of a human hair. This level of precision makes the Solidator 8K perfect for prints requiring smooth surfaces and intricate details, such as mold making and dental applications.

This latest iteration of Tangible Engineering’s industrial-grade system has quadrupled its predecessor’s capabilities. It offers four times the speed, a fourfold increase in the number of voxels due to its 8K resolution, and an expanded selection of materials.

The Solidator 8K is proudly made in Germany, using high-quality German-made linear system components, custom electronics hardware, firmware, and even their own in-house developed Solidator Studio slicer software. The printer also features a patented release system, which contributes to its high-speed printing capabilities across a wide range of resins.

Tangible Engineering is excited to showcase the Solidator 8K at the Formnext 2023 event in Frankfurt, Germany, from November 7th to 10th.
