Stratasys announces J826 Polyjet 3D printer

Stratasys has introduced a new 3D printer, the J826 Polyjet, which is basically a smaller and cheaper version of the existing J850 and J835. 

The J826 is a 3D Polyjet printer that’s been designed as a cheaper version of the larger J850/ J835.

The J8 series are designed for full colour prototyping and can map textures and colour gradients. They are validated to reproduce the Pantone Matching Systems colours. 

The J826 has a build volume of 255mm x 252mm x 200 mm. It can print horizontal build layers down to 14 microns. It can hold up to seven materials so that operators can load their most frequently used resins and avoid downtime associated with material changeovers. These include the Vero family of opaque materials with a mix of neutral shades and vivid colours as well as rubber-like materials and digital ABS. There are also two support materials: SUP705, which can be removed with a water jet; and SUP706B, which is soluble and easily removed.

There’s a choice of print modes offering different combinations of speed and print quality. It comes with GrabCAD Print software. Stratasys says that it’s particularly suited for enterprises with mid-volume modeling requirements in industries such as consumer goods and electronics, automotive, and educational institutions.

BiologIC Technologies, which is based in Cambridge, UK, is using the J826 3D printer to develop advanced medical instrumentation best-described as a ‘desktop PC of life sciences.’ Co-Founder Nick Rollings explained: “Our flagship product architecture will be 100% 3D printed using the J826, so it’s no exaggeration to say that it – and indeed our company – is completely and only enabled by this 3D printer.”

He added: “For us, the design freedoms delivered by full-color, multi-material 3D printing enables us to accelerate our design process with zero restrictions. This empowers us to create ultra-realistic parts for our prototype using materials that, thanks to their advanced properties, will enable us to fully 3D print our medical instrument and effectively personalize medicine once our product is finalized.”
