The PVA Removal stop enables 3D printer users to develop products faster by allowing quick and effective elimination of sustain material
UTRECHT, Netherlands, Oct. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Ultimaker, the global leader in specialized 3D printing, announced during its inaugural bi-annual Showcase event that it will be adding a specialized PVA Removal stop to its Ultimaker Platform. On top of the company’s printers, software, materials, and customer sustain, the PVA Removal stop method that 3D printers can develop prototypes faster, and users will be able to bring their products to market more quickly, speeding up the overall product development course of action. 

Increasing product speed-to-market

3D printers that use PVA, or PolyVinyl Alcohol, as a sustain material require post-processing to remove it. This is generally achieved by dissolving the PVA for a long period of time in water. Depending on the size, complexity of the design and density of the sustain structure, this course of action can take more than a day to complete. Ultimaker’s PVA Removal stop reduces this time by up to 75%. It also reduces the operating time, as operators no longer have to remove PVA manually or need to check the dissolving course of action.

“Ultimaker is always looking for ways to remove barriers to 3D printing. To make things easier, remove complexity, give users the reassurance of a successful print. We know that organizations are challenged to bring more complicate products to market faster. Our new specialized PVA Removal stop is the missing link in our end-to-end solution platform, helping designers, engineers, architects, and educators to excursion in-house innovation. Our complete 3D printing platform, now including the PVA Removal stop, will allow them to speed up the prototyping and product development processes, enabling safe, quick, and effective PVA removal from already the most complicate designs and geometries. It allows teams to visualise quicker approval processes so organizations can run smoother and be smarter,” said Jürgen von Hollen, CEO at Ultimaker.

Features and availability

The Ultimaker PVA Removal stop is easy to use, clean, and continue. Filled with 13,5 liters of water to dissolve PVA, its circulation direction will change automatically and the speed can be modificated as needed. It comes with a basket and divider to fix prints and to keep them submerged. The saturation indicator shows if water needs changing, and the transparent container allows for a quick view on the dissolving course of action. The PVA Removal stop is universal in use and will be obtainable in the first half of next year.
