At Formnext 2019, 3D Systems released a new engineering-grade plastic for its MJP 2500 Plus printer. VisiJet M2S-HT90 is a transparent heat deflecting material ideal for functional prototyping for parts that need to withstand temperatures up to 90 degrees Celsius.
The new material provides best-in-class heat deflection temperature of 90°C while meeting USP Class VI 93 standards. This strong, rigid, transparent material is designed for durable goods and automotive applications – ideal for functional prototyping of parts that operate in high temperature environments such as appliances, enclosures and housings, as well as testing parts or assemblies with heated fluids and gasses. Due to its biocompatibility, VisiJet M2S-HT90 is also optimal for healthcare applications including medical devices that include fine features and small internal structures designed for fluid flow.
A bioreactor developed by biomedical engineers at the Belgian biomedical company Antleron are using 3D Systems’ VisiJet M2S-HT90 on the MJP 2500 Plus 3D printer to develop bioreactors as part of their personalized manufacturing 4.0 strategy.
“Antleron is excited to be here in 3D Systems’ booth at Formnext to showcase – for the first time – what is in store for next-generation medical applications with the ProJet MJP 2500 Plus printer and VisiJet materials,” said Jan Schrooten, chief executive officer, Antleron.
“The combined mechanical and biocompatible properties of 3D Systems’ VisiJet M2S-HT90 are enabling us to accomplish innovations in cell biology – moving from 2D to 3D and beyond. We now can rapidly translate our ‘out-of-the-box’ cell processing ideas into new ways to develop products for life science applications.”
