RS Components (RS) has strengthened its range of 3D printers for rapid prototyping, one-off production and design professionals by adding the EnvisionTEC Perfactory Micro XL personal desktop 3D DLP manufacturing system.  The professional-grade Perfactory Micro XL delivers high-resolution print capability within a compact desktop form factor, and plugs easily into a PC via a standard USB connection.

It is compatible with proprietary flexible ABS compounds as well as HTM 140, which is ideal for tooling inserts.

With a build envelope of 100mm x 75mm x 100mm, Perfactory Micro XL can tackle a wide range of industrial and commercial tasks. XY resolution of 150µm and dynamic Z resolution of 50-100µm allow users to build accurate and finely detailed reproductions of objects that have been scanned, computer generated or downloaded from the Internet.

“3D printing is developing quickly and has countless industrial applications, like prototyping electronic enclosures or quickly replicating small components. RS is dedicated to offering the best selection of equipment meeting the needs of our customer base,” said Ben Lawton, Global Head of Tools and Consumables at RS. “Perfactory Micro XL delivers a revolutionary combination of high print performance and affordability for a printer in this class, from a brand that is already established as the first choice of the jewellery design industry and rapid prototyping houses.”

“EnvisionTEC is proud to be partnering with RS Components, a premium distribution outlet with a strong track record in providing a superior customer experience to engineers,” commented Martin Forth, VP of European Sales for EnvisionTEC. “This valuable alliance allows us to efficiently meet the market demand for EnvisionTEC’s solution-based products globally.”
