MIMAKI Europe announces the launch of a new Mimaki 3DGD-1800 3D printer, which boasts of ground-breaking production speeds to transform production of large-sized objects, opening up a wide range of new possible applications across industries from sign and display to manufacturing. It is clearly made by Massivit of Israel but, when combined with Mimaki’s range of 2D wide format printers, offers major advantages. Capable of producing objects up to 1.8 m high in just seven hours – with its assembly-based design allowing for the creation of even larger designs – the innovative 3D printing system boasts a number of time and cost saving features, including dual-head configuration to enable the simultaneous output of two structures. The newly launched MIMAKI 3DGD-1800 also facilitates the production of support-free hollowed structures, further streamlining production whilst allowing for increased portability and the possible addition of interior illuminations. The technology will open up a diverse range of potential applications, from signage, events and creative art through to interior design.
