Additive manufacturing Stratasys launches water-soluble media for polyjet 3D printers
Source: press release
3D printing company Stratasys has introduced a new water-soluble support material, WSS150, for two Polyjet 3D printers – the Stratasys J35 Pro and Stratasys J55 Prime. WSS150 allows users to easily and hands-free remove support material from their prints using tap water or a conventional dishwasher without additional chemicals.
Stratasys’ new WSS150 support material allows designers to create prints with delicate and intricate structures or with intricate details and channels without worrying about how the support materials will be removed. The WSS150 is also ideal for high-volume production, as multiple prints can be cleaned simultaneously and hands-free, instead of handling and post-processing each print individually. To remove support material, prints can simply be immersed in tap water, or for faster support removal, prints can be placed in a professional or conventional dishwasher.
The J35 Pro and J55 Prime 3D printers allow users to produce prototypes, models, and end-use parts in an office environment. With the introduction of the WSS150, users can now more easily integrate 3D printing into their workflow without the need for expensive, messy or bulky post-processing systems.
