Pictographics—a USA-based, family-run visual communication print services provider—has invested in a Massivit 1800 large-format 3D printer from Israeli company Massivit 3D Printing Technologies (Massivit 3D).
The Massivit 1800 affords a 180 x 150 x 120 cm build area and, as such, is to be used by Pictographics for large-scale, high-impact 3D print projects. The company already uses 3D Systems’s CubeX Duo 3D printer for comparatively small-scale prints, namely up to 23 x 26.5 x 24 cm.
The Massivit 1800 increases the Pictographics’s applications offering and is said to be attracting the attention of both existing and potential customers. The company expects the interest surrounding its new 3D printing capabilities and the applications it can now cater for to generate sales of its 2D as well as 3D prints. Furthermore, 3D prints can be finished using 2D technologies and 3D routing.
Pictographics’s production site now offers eight printing technologies as well as a range of CNC machines.
Commenting on the company’s reasons for purchasing the Massivit 1800, Craig M. Miller, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Pictographics, said: With a diverse customer-base covering many different market sectors, we often receive requests for custom jobs. As such, we need an array of production equipment at our disposal as well as a team that can think outside of the box when it comes to delivering the end-product.
‘With the capability to 3D print attention-grabbing display projects, the Massivit 1800 will significantly strengthen our applications offering, unlock new business opportunities and enhance our competitive edge. The system has been easy to integrate into our production site and the impact it will have will be, well…massive.’
Avner Israeli, CEO of Massivit 3D, added: ‘We are delighted that Pictographics has selected the Massivit 1800 3D printing solution to help realize its business objectives and we look forward to a close collaboration with them to ensure its success.’
