20210325144051.794.png

Sapphire® XC will give users up to 5X productivity improvement and 75% cost reduction per part when compared to the existing Sapphire system. 

The New Laser Powder Bed Fusion Printer (LPBF)

Sapphire® XC uses the same advanced functionality designed into the standard Sapphire while expanding the build volume to 600mm Ø by 550 mm z-height and increasing throughput by a factor of five-capable of both higher volume production and larger single parts.

Sapphire® XC Velo 3d printer Features 

Consistent architecture: Utilizes the same optical-train design, recoater technology, gas-flow technology, and metrology as the current Sapphire. The Sapphire® XC uses the same optical design, recoater, gas flow, control, and monitoring capabilities, parts produced for Sapphire® can be printed on the Sapphire® XC with the same process conditionals and material properties. 

 

Qualified material alloys 

Compatible alloys include Aluminum F357Titanium 6AI-4VINCONEL® 718 and HASTELLOY® X. 

SupportFree Metal 3D Printing 

Velo3D separates itself from existing powder bed fusion solutions with its unique ability to print low angles and over-hangs down to zero degrees, as well as large diameters and inner tubes up to 100 mm without the need for supports.
