Branchburg, NJ, (May 15, 2017) Cimquest, the leading resource for Mastercam and 3D Printers is now contracted to sell Desktop Metal. This means that in addition to offering, Mastercam, 3D scanning and inspection, as well as traditional 3D printers, Cimquest can now offer the New England and Mid-Atlantic territories a Metal 3D Printer at a price point that will allow the manufacturing community to venture into the exciting field of 3D Metal Printing.

This will open up new opportunities for current Cimquest customers, from Maine to Maryland, and allow them to get into the metal 3D printing arena. Rob Hassold, CEO of Cimquest says, “I am excited that with Desktop Metal prototyping and production system technology we are the first reseller in the world to be able to leverage 19 years of additive manufacturing experience as well as over 27 years of subtractive (Mastercam) CNC programming technology to provide state-of-art manufacturing solutions for today’s industry leaders. With over 25 technical experts serving the additive and subtractive space we are well positioned to handle almost any challenge served by those technologies.”

Some of the benefits of this new Desktop Metal 3D printing system include:

  • The Desktop Metal Studio System is 10 times less expensive than existing technology today.
  • It eliminates the need for expensive, industrial facilities to safely house the technology.
  • Makes metal 3D printing drop-dead simple.
  • Significantly increases the versatility of prototyping.

The DM Studio System is available to reserve in May with shipping beginning in August 2017.  The complete DM Studio System, including printer, debinder, and furnace, is $120,000.  The DM Production System is available to reserve in May for shipping beginning in 2018.

Cimquest Inc. Acquires the Next Generation Stratasys Fortus 900mc for 3D Printing Services and Sales

BRANCHBURG, NJ (February 17, 2017)

Cimquest has acquired the next generation Stratasys Fortus 900mc, a robust FDM Production 3D Printer built for functional prototyping, manufacturing aids, tooling and short-run direct digital manufacturing. This addition has expanded Cimquest’s 3D printing services department by increasing their capacity to print large-scale parts and larger volume projects. Furthermore, customers now have the option to print parts in the newly released Nylon 6 engineering-grade thermoplastic. Manufacturers using additive production processes value high-strength 3D printed parts. Now available on the new Fortus 900, Stratasys FDM Nylon 6 offers the best combination of strength and toughness among current Stratasys FDM materials. It enables creation of functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts with high impact and tensile strength.

“We are excited to have added a second Fortus 900 to the Cimquest arsenal of 3D printers” said Tom Murphy Cimquest’s new 3D Printing Services Manager. “This investment enables us to service the needs of our growing customer base and work in multiple engineering-grade materials to produce durable and often larger parts. This includes anything from conceptual designs and functional testing, to production floor-ready manufacturing aids, tooling, and high-strength end use parts.”

This new generation of the proven large format Fortus 900mc maintains the industry’s leading accuracy and reliability. It offers a streamlined workflow and easier job-monitoring with an internal camera and GrabCAD Print Software. Standard certifications are included, eliminating the effort and cost to qualify the 3D printer for the user’s production floor.   With additional key features and certifications, the 3D printer allows for improved use along with a rapid installation process that saves time for the users.

The proven core mechanics of the original Stratasys Fortus 900mc system remain unchanged in this upgraded system with a strong line-up of enhanced features to improve the overall user experience.

Capabilities include:

  • Largest build envelope of any of the Stratasys FDM printers – ability to print 3x2x3 in a single build or lots of smaller parts
  • Fastest of any of the Stratasys FDM printers – ability to respond to requests more rapidly
  • Tightest tolerances of any of the Stratasys FDM printers – ability to produce parts for the most demanding applications
  • Internal Camera allowing for remote viewing via Control Center.
  • Large selection of industrial grade thermoplastics including Nylon 6, which is the newest FDM material

 

The Fortus 900mc Production 3D Printer offers higher productivity, streamlined workflow and easier job monitoring to meet production demands for large prototyping shops or on the manufacturing floor. Cimquest Inc., an additive & subtractive solutions company based in Branchburg, NJ carries the Fortus 900mc along with the entire line of Stratasys 3D printers.
