Zortrax Launches M300 Dual Desktop Metal Printing - Digital Engineering

Zortrax is introducing the metal 3D printing option for an M300 Dual 3D desktop printer. This industrial-grade large-workspace machine, which operates in single and dual extrusion modes, is compatible with a wide selection of materials starting with basic and inexpensive filament and flexible materials through engineering classics such as nylon, up to highly specialized materials, carbon and glass reinforced polymers for advanced technical applications. This range is further expanded with two kits: Zortrax Full Metal Package 316L and Zortrax Full Metal Package 17-4 PH.

Both sets contain all the essentials for desktop metal 3D printing, including metal-polymer filaments from BASF Forward AM: BASF Ultrafuse 316L and BASF Ultrafuse 17-4.

Zortrax M300 Dual is a desktop 3D printer that supports filaments starting from standard materials based on ABS or PLA and flexible filaments, through advanced composites reinforced with glass or carbon fibers such as BASF Ultrafuse PPGF 30 or BASF Ultrafuse PAHT CF15 up to classics of engineering such as Nylon or Nylon-based materials The print profiles available in the Z-SUITE software for the M300 Dual include filaments made by brands such as BASF Forward AM, Nanovia, KIMYA or 3DxTech. This means that the Zortrax M300 Dual 3D printer can work with almost any filament and caters for the majority of applications in most industries.

“Zortrax M300 Dual is a truly universal machine, combining a large working space, single and dual extrusion modes, an intuitive interface and a very wide range of ready-to-use calibrated material profiles. We are now adding a metal 3D printing option to this desktop printer with two complete sets: Zortrax Full Metal Package 316L and Zortrax Full Metal Package 17-4 PH, which includes everything you need to start metal 3D printing and to ensure fully functional metal parts, which exhibit the properties of steel,” says Michał Siemaszko, head of the research and development department at Zortrax.

Zortrax Full Metal Package 316L and Zortrax Full Metal Package 17-4 PH, apart from a metal-polymer filament, both include all other components needed for metal 3D printing. In each pack, users will find: BASF Ultrafuse Support Layer, a support material, which ensures the desired geometry of printed parts during the 3D printing and post-processing stages, Magigoo Pro Metal adhesive to provide adhesion during printing and removal of the printed part, an additional hotend module for the Zortrax M300 Dual, an adapter with a PTFE tube and a voucher for professional post-processing at the company Elnik (BASF’s trusted partner in Germany), where 3D prints are submitted to sintering and debinding processes to obtain the properties of steel.

The introduction of the new metal print option for the M300 Dual is accompanied by numerous improvements to the Z-SUITE slicer in BETA 3.2.0. The latest update brings the software more in line with the needs of the 3D printer user base and the nature of two-step post-processing that turns “green” parts into steel. Notable features in this area include a new gyroid infill, the way support structures are 3D printed with BASF Ultrafuse Support Layer, and that the update brings new materials and performance improvements for all Zortrax 3D printers .

“The latest version of Z-SUITE BETA features a number of improvements in printing with metal powder filaments. A new gyroid infill allows you to print metal models from 60% to 90% infill. Another change improves the way support structures are printed with BASF Ultrafuse Support Layer. Here the supports are divided into smaller blocks along all axes and narrowed towards the bottom. All of this makes supports placed in hard-to-reach areas easier to remove and reduces their footprint on the model,” says Ewa Piórkowska, R&D software project manager at Zortrax.
