RS inline as a fully automated and scalable production line on show for the first time in real scale

nline production in real size for the first time. The fully automated system is designed for up to 4,000 printed parts per day and can remain in operation 24/7 if required. Rapid Shape thus offers a scalable automation solution for flexible, precise, and fast manufacturing in the field of 3D-printing.

Rapid Shape does not focus exclusively on productivity factors, but at the same time integrates the aspect of sustainability and material efficiency into its products. Andreas Schultheiss, Chief Executive Director of Rapid Shape, explains „Not only does this eliminate the need for expensive and less environmentally friendly cleaning using isopropyl alcohol, but up to 15 percent of material can be recovered and reused in the 3D-printing process.“

The RS-Inline production concept can be individually expanded to up to five machines in the I100+
model series. Thanks to the Automatic Refill Unit, the material required for the parts to be printed is fed to the machine without manual intervention. Combined with the option of permanent production, this enables the lowest possible parts costs.

For example, the aforementioned I100+, as well as the I50+ will each be on display as stand-alones. The I50+ is Rapid Shape`s new workhorse, perfect for producing up to 11 models in one print run. Compared to the I100+, the I50+ is a lower production volume option with even higher precision. Below are the most concise features for the user of the I50+.
