Imagine being able to achieve professional quality 3D printing at speeds hundreds of times faster than conventional 3D printers. Today, UNIZ announces the launch and Kickstarter campaign for the SLASH OL and SLTV Series 3D printers. These game-changing devices represent the next level of 3D printing for hobbyists, prosumers and professionals.
In 2016, UNIZ, a California based company, shook up the 3D printing industry at CES when they released the incredible SLASH - A high performance, yet affordable, LCD-SLA 3D Desktop Printer that was hundreds of times faster than competitors in its class, delivering the first professional level 3D printer at an affordable price.
As the the fastest desktop 3D printer ever made, capable of reaching printing speeds of 1000 cc/hr while maintaining incredible detail, with resolutions on the Y and X axis as fine as 2560 x 1600, 339 ppi and 75 μm utilizing ultra-fast LCD Stereolithography (SLA light-curing) technology, SLASH was the hit of CES 2016 and went on to raise over $500,000 USD in just one month when it was released to the public via Kickstarter.
Since then, SLASH by UNIZ has received rave reviews from all over the world, consistently evaluated as one of the fastest products of its kind. Their intuitive, user-friendly, high performance printers make it easy for anyone to achieve professional quality results in 3D printing at a fraction of the cost of similar products. Since then, the UNIZ team has been hard at work improving upon the design and performance of their printers for a wide array of applications and use cases.
Now, UNIZ is back with a new Kickstarter campaign for their new series of revolutionary printers – the SLASH OL, a comprehensive update of their ground-breaking desktop printer, and the SLTV series which delivers greater volume and incredible speeds for industrial applications. Using proprietary technology to achieve industrial level quality and lightning-fast speeds for prototyping, tooling, manufacturing and more, the performance of the new UNIZ 3D printers for design, R&D, manufacturing and production is simply astonishing…
SLASH+– As a follow up to the ground-breaking first generation printer, the SLASH+ LCD SLA 3D printer is an upgraded version for prosumers, hobbyists, educators and artists. The new “plus” model is equipped with uni-directional peel (UDP) technology, which minimizes the peel time of conventional layered SLA process, and achieving an astonishing printing speed of 640mm/hr in z-axis build speed (14800cc/hr build envelope speed), for example, a 10cm long hexagonal mesh model can be printed in less than 9minutes. This new technology is capable of challenging conventional injection molding technology in production speed and quality, and this approach to 3D printing makes it easier and faster than ever for professionals and enthusiasts to dream, design and create.
SLASH OL – To make UDP-SLA an even more affordable technology for everyday consumer, UNIZ releases the SLASH Online (OL) 3D printer, whose XY resolution is software limited to 150um, and equipped the same UDP technology. This is a perfect solution for consumers in the sub $1000 FDM market, who are not satisfied with the FDM’s poor printing quality, slow speed, and low reliability. The UDP’s 650mm/hr (14800cc/hr envelope speed) is over 500x faster than any FDM printer, which is a real game-changer in the market.
SLASH PRO– The bigger the better. This is the PRO version of SLASH which has doubled z-axis build envelope, with the newly equipped UDP technology, this printer is capable of outputting a full size adult shoe-sole in less than 40 mins. This is a perfect solution for professionals who needed the extended build envelope in a desktop setup.
For Industrial manufacturing, high-output production and lower-cost manufacturing, UNIZ presents the zSLTV models…
zSLTV-M – In addition to the updated SLASH printer, UNIZ is releasing two incredible new 3D printers for professionals and industry applications. The SLTV15 uses the same revolutionary LCD photo curing 3D process as the SLASH and equipped with UDP. This system has 89um XY resolution, 3x build area(330x190mm XY), 8x the build envelope (410mm Z) compared to SLASH, and a blistering fast printing speed of up to 2,800 cc/hr solid output speed and 24000cc/hr build envelope speed. For example, 20 full-arch dental models can be printed in less than 5 mins.
With the release of this incredible new suite of 3D printing solutions, UNIZ once again changes the landscape of the 3D printing industry and re-establishes itself as the leading innovator in the field.
UNIZ will be launching their new printers on Kickstarter in early January with pre-sales and special deals for their loyal customers.
