Mannequins and facades using DLP

31 October 2022

Fiberneering will introduce their machines to the market at Formnext 2022. The young Dutch company has been building machines and formulating materials since 2017. Now the machine and materials have reached a level of maturity that allows for the next step.

DLP technology is well known in the industry for its high level of detail and fast production rates. However, until now the majority of applications has been in small products, like dental applications. “Our machines have unique build volumes, starting with 1m x 0.5m x 0.4m for the XD2 machine,” says Peter Cocu, commercial manager of Fiberneering. “This build volume enables production of previously impossible prints: very large products with high visual requirements like mannequins, signage and art pieces. But also more technical parts like molds, prototypes and even complete facades.”

According to Fiberneering, the build volume of the XD2 machine is more than 3 times larger than the largest currently commercially available DLP machine. The company also offers two even larger systems built on the same technology platform: XD4 (1 x 0.8 x 0.5m) and XD8 (1 x 1 x 0.8m).

In combination with the proprietary resin systems offered by Fiberneering, it is possible to complete a full meter long print run in 24 hours, Fiberneering reports. This high productivity, in combination with resin costs significantly under current industry benchmarks, makes the technology extremely well suited for production companies involved in arts, visual marketing, prototyping and polymer processing.

Fiberneering’s history started in 2015 with development of DLP based printers for certain applications in composite processing, for which the company holds several patents.
