Tethon 3D, a Nebraska-based 3D printing supplies manufacturer, has launched its first desktop digital mild processing (DLP) 3D printer in time for RAPID + TCT 2019 in Detroit this week.
The Bison 1000 is designed for materials improvement and is optimized to be used with Tethon 3D’s ceramic and metallic supplies. Trent Allen, President at Tethon 3D, stated:
“We’ve designed this printer & software program for customers like us – materials scientists. We consider it’s mandatory for our customers to have the liberty of adjusting settings & utilizing their very own powders if they want.”

Tethon 3D has over eight years of expertise creating supplies for ceramic 3D printing; this contains its Castalite Funding Casting resin and Porcelite. Based on the corporate, such supplies can be utilized in numerous industries akin to high quality artwork, metallic casting, and biomedical analysis.
In August 2018, Tethon 3D acquired a grant from the College of Nebraska, to develop a multi-material DLP 3D printer which has result in the event of the Bison 1000. This desktop system includes a construct quantity of 110 x 60 x 130mm and a pixel measurement 57µm. A heated vat, with controllable warmth temperatures, can also be built-in into the Bison 1000 to cut back resin viscosity and help larger loaded supplies for improved half high quality and energy.
Moreover, the Bison 1000 has a digicam & app which permits for distant monitoring. Allen added, “Tethon 3D’s Genesis resin has been used as a base resin for lots of of various ceramic & metallic powders (SiC, Zirconia, Copper, Graphene, Ceramic matrix composites). Internally the Bison 1000 has helped us develop new resins. We now have plans to constantly add extra ceramics & metals to our off the shelf portfolio.”
