High-end 3D printer, resins and post-processing devices
For a true success of your resin 3D prints, a reliable 3D printer is just as crucial as quality materials and post-processing devices. That is why the Inkspire 2 is compatible with best-performing resins from world-leading manufacturers like BASF Forward AM and Henkel/Loctite. And once the printing is done, the parts can be post-processed using Zortrax Cleaning Station and Zortrax Curing Station: a professional post-processing ecosystem introduced along with the Inkspire 2.
Quality approved by top resin manufacturers
The Inkspire 2 is compatible with many advanced engineering resins, including those previously available only for DLP 3D printers. Zortrax is working with brands like Henkel/Loctite and BASF Forward AM to ensure properties of parts printed with their best-performing resins match or exceed values specified by the manufacturer. This conformity is guaranteed by a thorough, two-stage validation process, where 3D printed models were first tested in-house by Zortrax and then, independently, by the resin manufacturers who made the test prints on pre-production Inkspire 2 units sent to their laboratories. Test samples were post-processed using Zortrax Cleaning Station and Zortrax Curing Station which means the validation extends to the entire Zortrax resin 3D printing ecosystem.
Industrial-grade proprietary light engine
The light engine in the Inkspire 2 has been developed in-house from the ground up. Zortrax engineers designed an array of UV diodes backlighting a monochromatic screen to achieve uniform UV exposure of every single pixel on a large build platform while retaining utmost precision. Therefore, resin 3D models made on the Inkspire 2 have the same, outstanding quality, regardless of whether they are placed in the center or towards the edges of the build platform. Finally, this new light engine is seven times more powerful than a standard UV LCD screen, which makes Zortrax Inkspire 2 compatible with chosen DLP resins.
The Inkspire 2 makes the entire resin 3D printing process simple and clean through automation cleverly implemented in its key components. This makes working with photopolymer resins easier than ever.
Huge step forward
The Inkspire 2 3D printer builds upon the success of the original Inkspire and improves it in every possible way. The numbers tell the story of outstanding progress in Zortrax UV LCD printing solutions:
Made for world-class materials
The Inkspire 2 supports a wide range of high-end 3D printing resins supplied by world's most trusted manufacturers.
Specialized, ceramic-filled resin belonging to the rigid line of BASF Forward AM’s 3D printing photopolymers. High content of ceramic particles makes the material desirable in the automotive, robotics, electronics, metallurgy, energy production and chemical industry.
The purpose of elastomeric resins is emulating various kinds of rubber. Such materials are commonly used for seals, gaskets, or hinges. They differ by the degree of elasticity, mechanical strength, and thermal properties to fit a wide range of engineering needs.
The defining feature of these materials is high rigidity. Parts 3D printed with rigid resins do not give way under stress, retaining their shape to the point of breaking. They work best in structural frames, positioning jigs, or fixtures.
Tough resins can endure very high loads before they break. Compared to rigid materials, they give way a little bit sooner under stress but need higher force to reach the breaking point. As such, tough resins are usually used for mechanical components working under significant loads.
High-temperature resins can withstand exposure to high temperatures without loosing their mechanical properties. Such materials are used to quickly 3D print molding-grade component or to fabricate parts operating in high-temperature environments.
BlueCast castable resins
BlueCast castable resins belong to a range of specialized materials made for casting target parts out of metal alloys. They leave little to no ash residue after burnout and offer excellent dimensional accuracy necessary in the investment casting process.
Zortrax basic resins
Zortrax basic resins is a family of high-quality photopolymers with excellent price-to-quality ratio. All Zortax basic resins come with printing profiles throughly tested by Zortrax engineers and included in Z-SUITE software to achieve the best possible results with minimal effort.
Z-SUITE is a slicing software that comes free with every Zortrax 3D printer. It is made to prepare digital models for 3D printing to achieve the best possible quality of printed parts in the shortest time.
The Inkspire 2 has Wi-Fi connectivity which makes it compatible with Zortrax inCloud, a cloud-based 3D printing management service.
