Stratasys Ltd. has unveiled a new solution in the company’s family of multi-material enterprise PolyJet 3D printers. The new J850 Pro 3D printer offers J8 series capabilities tailored specifically to engineering needs, without full color.

It enables engineers to produce prototypes for concept verification, design validation and functional performance using the latest materials, including transparent VeroUltra Clear. The J850 Pro complements the existing J850 Prime for designers and engineers who also need full-color printing.

With its capacity for seven materials jetted simultaneously, fast printing and high accuracy, the J850 Pro helps designers and engineers work faster and more productively. It includes rigid, flexible and composite digital materials, enabling a wide range of functional applications, within a large 490x390x200-mm build capacity. Concept models can be printed at twice the speed of legacy systems using Super High Speed Mode, and at approximately half the cost per part, using DraftGray material. The J850 Pro is software-upgradeable to the Prime version for full-color printing. 

“We’ve seen the value to customers of our PolyJet 3D printers—in throughput, accuracy, reliability and multi-material capabilities—and are excited to have the J850 Pro now bring that value to our engineering customers, at an attractive price,” says Stratasys’ Design Vice President Shamir Shoham.

Typical applications of the J850 Pro include simulation of textures, product labeling, shock absorption, fit and functional testing, over-molding, living hinges, injection molds, embedded sealing elements, parting lines simulation, structural mechanics and integrity, and see-through elements such as transparent materials for light guiding applications and micro-fluidics uses. These needs are common in industries such as consumer products and electronics, automotive, medical devices, service bureaus and the education market.

The seven simultaneous materials give engineers the versatility to produce parts that match their needs, instead of turning to multiple 3D printing or traditional technologies. Materials include the entire grayscale space of the Vero rigid family, the Agilus30 family of flexible materials, VeroClear, VeroUltra Clear and Digital ABS materials. 

“The ability to easily create prototypes delivers great value to engineering teams in different stages of the development cycle,” says Ofer Libo, product manager for the J850 Pro. “In addition, the J850 Pro’s multi-material capabilities and large throughput enables them to test different designs, textures, and material properties to accelerate time to market and precisely deliver on user needs.”

The J850 Pro is immediately available. Learn more about the power of 3D printed realism for engineering prototypes on the J8 Series web page.
