3D printers are revolutionary devices that are changing our approach to production and creation in a variety of industries. This article will compare two models of the flagship VSHAPER 500 PRO and 500 MED printers. It will help you make an informed choice and find the 3D printer that best suits your needs.
500 PRO printer will find application in many fields thanks to the advanced technologies used, printing temperature of over 400 degrees and large working space. It is dedicated to the production industry, creating prototypes, models, production elements. Thanks to the high printing temperature, it is possible to print from a variety of materials including PEEK, PEEK CF, PA, TPU. It is also used by customers in the aerospace, automotive, architecture or scientific research industries.
The 500 MED is also suitable for medical prints. Above all, it is constructed from acid-resistant steel and sterilisation using UV light is possible. These are necessary procedures especially when using the printer in medicine or dentistry. It is used to produce prosthetic components, anatomical models, implants and surgical instruments. Thanks to its ability to print from different materials, the printer can adapt to specific medical requirements. The most commonly used material in the 500 MED printer is PEEK.
The 500 PRO and 500 MED printers, despite many similarities in design and technology, have differences that set them apart in the medical and industrial markets.
The MED printer uses the UV light sterilisation necessary for medical printing. In addition, there is a HEPA filter inside the chamber, while the 500 PRO printer has ventilation by means of a carbon filter, which is good enough for industrial applications.
The final difference in the two devices is the housing of the working chamber. In the medical printer, in order to maintain the parameters needed for certification, the working chamber has been finished in acid-resistant steel.
The printer is designed for industrial, automotive and aerospace companies focused on industrial prints, small batch production, prototyping from a wide range of filaments.
The printer with medical applications meets the highest standards thanks to additional functions such as sterilisation or construction of the chamber from acid-resistant steel. It will prove useful in medical establishments, research centres where research into the application of 3D printing in medical areas is conducted.
