Magal AWT Test Laboratory 3D Printing capability


 

With the introduction of a Stratysis Objet 30 3D printer into the test and development laboratory, Magal AWT has added the capability to turn CAD models into working prototypes in a very short period of time. With a resolution of 16 micron per layer, the printer is one of the most accurate available and allows complex designs to be transformed into physical models with ease.

 

 

“The Objet30 combines the accuracy and versatility of a high-end rapid prototyping machine with the small footprint of a desktop 3D printer. Powered by PolyJet technology, it offers five 3D printing materials and features PolyJet's signature smooth surfaces, small moving parts and thin walls. With a tray size of 300 × 200 × 150 mm (11.81 × 7.87 × 5.9 in.), Objet30 gives the power to create realistic models in-house – quickly and easily.”

 

                           

 

 

 

 

The Objet 30 Pro 3D printer has the ability to print parts in clear as well as a higher operating temperature material in white.

Parts printed in VeroClear (RGD810), allows the Magal team to assemble and test prototypes to observe flow characteristics and view the internal mechanism during operation as well as being able to show new design concepts to customers.

Parts printed in the high temperature material (RGD525) allow prototypes to be assembled and tested near to the operating temperatures of the thermostat (75-80°C).
