Nexa3D unveils 'world's fastest' large-format 3D printer
Nexa3D displayed the NXE400 at CES 2019. Claimed to be the industry's fastest large-format 3D printing system, the device prints at up to 6 times the speed and 2.5 times the build volume of all other comparable products on the market today, according to Nexa3D. Part of a new family of printers that leverages Nexa3D’s proprietary LSPc technology, the NXE400 can continuously print up to 16 liters of parts volume, at speeds of up to 1Z centimeter per minute.
Nexa3D co-founder and executive chairman, Avi Reichental said, "We are thrilled to introduce to the North American market at CES this groundbreaking technology that has broken the speed, size, and cost barriers that have constrained our industry’s growth for decades. This is the printer that end-users, strategic partners, resellers, and investors alike have been waiting for years. We are humbled to be the company to provide this much-needed advancement to the 3D printing industry.”

The NXE400 is slated for commercialization in early 2019. Priced $49,950 for a 16-liter printer, the NXE400 can print at injection molding repeatability and tolerances.
"After more than two years of intensive research and development, our team is proud to exhibit the results of our painstaking work at CES 2019 with our significant partners Techniplas and Dynamism, two go-to-market collaborators that are helping us validate the marketplace impact and build access to new products," said Izhar Medalsy, chief product officer, Nexa3D.
Nexa3D plans to commercialize its new NXE series of printers during the first half of 2019 through a multi-channel arrangement with XYZprinting, a 3D printing brand, and BEGO, a provider of digital and traditional dental materials. As part of its growing automotive focus, Nexa3D has also partnered with Techniplas, a design and manufacturing provider of automotive products and services.
The NXE400 is equipped with materials meant to be ideal for ultra-fast printing of functional prototyping, production tooling, and full-scale manufacturing of end-use parts, casting patterns, and dental restorations. The printers are also equipped with cognitive software and integrated sensors, which together optimize manufacturing part performance, provide detailed diagnostics, and offer continuous monitoring. Nexa3D printers are powered by the company’s proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) technology and patented structured light matrix, capable of reaching speeds of 1Z centimeter per minute.
