Zmorph has released a new product in its portfolio, the industrial 3D printer Zmorph i500. The company rebranded last year to focus on the industrial market, and its R&D team has now developed this professional, high-performance 3D printer that responds to the most common problems the industrial 3D printing sector faces, with new features, all available at a reasonable price.

The device is intended for cost-effective low-volume production, custom tooling, and rapid prototyping. It is a reliable, high-performance, large volume 3D printer for manufacturers, engineers, and other industry professionals. The device is an ideal addition to automotive, R&D, aerospace, production, defence and similar industries.

The machine provides a large printing volume of 500 x 460 x 300 mm, enabling it to print multiple parts simultaneously or create large models, thus maximising productivity. The Dual Drive Dual Extruder featuring a Nozzle Lifting System works with various sensors to deliver repeatable and high-quality results.

Zmorph i500 is easy to use. Its ergonomic touch panel offers a user-friendly UI to Filament Flow System. The operator just requires to start the project and wait for the results. The machine sensors monitor the smooth flow of material and indicate any obstacles.

To maximise uptime and throughput, the Zmorph i500 features a Distributed Control System that makes servicing much easier and faster, as there is easy access to each subassembly.

The machine was developed with safety in mind. Features include an electric door lock to stop unauthorised access during operation; the Air Flow System filters fumes and particles from the printer, and even a removable Wi-Fi module, make the device ready to work in an industrial environment without further safety measures.

Marek Kłos, vice-president at Zmorph, comments: “Zmorph has been present in the additive manufacturing market since 2013. We used this time to acquire experience and R&D proficiency to enter the professional market. Last year, despite COVID, we undertook full company rebranding and released a new all-in-one machine - Zmorph Fab.

“With the Zmorph i500, we are ready to compete with professional segment market leaders. Zmorph i500 is an easy to operate and maintain, modern, large-format 3D printer that was designed to fulfil the needs of even the most demanding users from the industry.

“i500 was carefully developed with valuable feedback from our customers and distributor network.”
