VENTURA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast polymer production 3D printers, announced today it will demonstrate the full power of its photoplastic and thermoplastic printers, materials, post processing and software offerings at Formnext Connect 2020.
The company invites participants to visit its virtual booth at Formnext Connect, where it plans to display its ultrafast 3D printers: the photoplastic NXE400 and thermoplastic QLS350, and its new xCure system. Get your free pass here and once on site, click the Interested button on Nexa3D’s profile page or any Nexa3D product to get in touch.
Over the last six months, the company has expanded its collaborations and partnerships with the world’s leading material companies including Henkel, BASF, DSM and Evonik to create a powerful portfolio of production grade photoplastic and thermoplastic materials. All of these performance materials will be on display at the Nexa3D virtual booth with other in-show materials announcements to be made during the show.
The company will also participate with its factory automation partner Siemens in a joint conference discussion on the converging role of AM within Industry 4.0. In addition, Nexa3D will co-host a webinar with DSM on advances and breakthroughs for PBT materials within additive manufacturing on Monday, Nov. 9.
“We are all passionate additive manufacturing practitioners that are committed to digitizing the world’s supply chain sustainably,” said Avi Reichental co-founder, Chairman and CEO, Nexa3D. “For the first time in 17 years, we are not able to meet in person in Frankfurt for our annual industry pilgrimage. As an industry, we hope can make this virtual event a memorable one nonetheless.”
“We founded Nexa3D in 2016 with a sole purpose in mind: to make the world’s fastest polymer 3D printers affordable for professionals and businesses of all sizes. As we attend Formnext Connect 2020, our printers are capable of continuously printing at speeds of up to 8 liters per hour. This represents 20X productivity gains without typical costs associated with tooled plastics. We are deeply grateful that despite the unprecedented challenges that Covid-19 continues to place in front of us, Nexa3D is having an exceptional year thanks to our customers, partners and above all our incredible team. Moreover, we are heartened by the way that our entire 3D printing industry is stepping up to face the greatest global challenge of our time and wish everyone who is walking the additive path much success.“
“We are looking forward to seeing everyone in Frankfurt virtually this time and face-to face at an industry event in the not-too-distant future. Above all, we hope everyone stays safe, productive and successful.”
Nexa3D plans to showcase and demonstrate the following products at Formnext Connect:
NXE400 photoplastic 3D printer (SL)
With an unprecedented 16L build volume measuring 10.8 in x 6.3 in x 15.7 in (27.5 cm x 16 cm x 40 cm), intelligent optimization, and Nexa3D’s revolutionary patented LSPc technology, the NXE400 is the perfect printer for any application. The ultrafast NXE400 reaches speeds of 8 liters per hour, transforming the 3D printing industry in the same way that broadband internet offered new possibilities compared to dial-up access. Nexa3D has partnered with world class resellers to make the NXE400 available across the globe. Watch NXE400 video.
xCure post processing system
xCure is our new intelligent post processing curing system for all photoplastic-based parts produced on the NXE400. xCure is designed to consistently and rapidly unlock the full potential of 3D printed parts at production scale, ensuring the delivery of desired mechanical properties, part to part and printer to printer. xCure boasts a large chamber size that readily accommodates parts as large as 16 liters in volume with the ability to simultaneously fit three build plates and enable parts to be cured individually. Watch xCure video.
QLS350 thermoplastic 3D printer (LS)
Featuring the highest part throughput in its class, the QLS350 delivers significant savings compared to traditional tooling costs and provides unprecedented production throughput and flexibility. The QLS350 produces up to 4X the print speed of traditional laser sintering technologies. With its removable build unit, for independent cool down and depowering module, the QLS350 delivers a polymer-based production alternative to traditional injection molding with full Industry 4.0 capabilities designed for lights-out 24/7 operation.

Materials and Partnerships
Nexa3D has a proven ability to rapidly develop high performance materials. Since January 2020, the company has introduced six new materials, enabling groundbreaking polymer solutions. Nexa3D has formed partnerships and joint collaborations with the world’s leading material suppliers including Henkel, BASF, DSM, Evonik, and Arkema, unlocking the full potential of performance polymers tailored for faster, more economical design cycles and series production. Nexa3D and its partners are jointly developing proprietary specialty materials and processes that will generate recurring revenues from each customer who purchases a Nexa3D printer.
Nexa3D’s ever growing portfolio of offerings now includes a new biocompatible medical material xMED412, high performance photoplastic materials xABS Black, xCE-Black and xCE-White, its supply-chain approved thermoplastic materials xPA11, xPA12 and xPBT, and its new eco-friendly washing solvent xClean.
Beyond the company’s game-changing hardware innovations, Nexa3D is digitizing the process interplay between chemistry phase change and speed at scale. At Formnext, the company plans to demonstrate how its NexaX software enables is process interplay to unlock new properties for printed parts, directly affecting process stability, print yields, mechanical performance and aging. The company is applying its algorithms to address users' unmet supply-chain resiliency and material properties needs and ensure the consistent high quality and yields of printed parts.

Nexa3D is digitizing the world’s supply chain sustainably. The company makes ultrafast industrial grade polymer 3D printers affordable for professionals and businesses of all sizes. The company's photoplastic printers are powered by its proprietary Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing (LSPc) while its thermoplastic printers are powered by Quantum Laser Sintering (QLS), both of which increase print speed and productivity by orders of magnitude. The company’s partnerships with world-class material suppliers unlock the full potential of supply-chain approved polymers that are tailored for faster production at scale. Nexa3D’s Digital Twin Printing (DTP) software optimizes the entire additive production cycle through process interplay algorithms to ensure part performance and production consistency, while minimizing material usage and waste to reduce energy and carbon footprints.
