KYOCERA Document Solutions UK Ltd has announced the next phase of its strategic partnership with 3D Systems, and its entrance into the professional 3D print market, with the launch of the ProJet 4500 professional 3D printer.
The ProJet 4500 is the industry’s only photo realistic full-colour plastic 3D printer, combining the power of vibrant full colour with durable plastic materials. Particularly suited to R&D, universities and small production requirements, the ProJet 4500 has the ability to create flexible yet strong full colour parts. It is ideal to produce a finished 3D model for the purposes of concept design or product verification, bringing 2D ideas and designs “to life”.
Trevor Maloney, Product Marketing Manager, KYOCERA Document Solutions UK Ltd said: “Following the announcement of our strategic partnership with 3D Systems earlier this year, we’re delighted to have expanded the product range on offer to our partners and end-users. As 3D printing becomes a more affordable technology we’re excited to offer solutions for all use types through one of the most comprehensive 3D portfolios in the UK.”
Other benefits of the ProJet 4500 include fast print capability, minimal waste and the ability to produce multiple designs in one build. This would help to reduce the costs and time currently associated with 3D printing, as it reduces the traditional reliance on third party model makers and suppliers. By having the capability to build their own realistic 3D parts, users can also benefit from reducing their R&D costs and effectively bring products to market faster.
Michele Marchesan, Vice President, Chief Revenue Officer, 3D Systems said: “We’re delighted that KYOCERA Document Solutions UK Ltd has chosen the 3D Systems product portfolio as the latest innovative offer for its partners and end-users. KYOCERA will provide a unique level of customer service, which when combined with our market-leading products, means that our collaboration creates real synergy and the optimum solution for businesses in the United Kingdom & Ireland considering 3D printing.”
As part of the partnership agreement between 3D Systems and KYOCERA, and to ensure that the 3D printer can help produce mission critical parts and models, the ProJet 4500 is offered with a comprehensive support package underpinned by KYOCERA’s own service network.
