Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

The newly launched Stratasys ProBleacher, a desktop-size photobleacher system that allows users of clear PolyJet materials to achieve full transparency and no color residue in their models.

With the introduction of the Stratasys ProBleacher, PolyJet customers have all the tools necessary for in-house PolyJet transparent prototyping – from designing to printing to finishing. The system promises “easy installation, out of the box” along with money and time savings in post-processing”.

New Stratasys ProBleacher gets PolyJet parts to full transparency

To provide optimum photobleaching results, the standalone Stratasys ProBleacher features touchscreen controls for ease of use and provides users with the ability to achieve maximum transparency and remove yellowness that can occur with 3D printed clear materials.

Stratasys today launched two new PolyJet 3D printers, the Stratasys J35 Pro, and the Stratasys J55 Prime, along with new software solutions for research and packaging prototyping. The company has accelerated its pace of innovation using PolyJet technology as designers and engineers work to bring new and better products to market faster and more efficiently. The J35 Pro represents the first multi-material 3D printer for the desktop from Stratasys, while the J55 Prime extends the value of the J55 3D printer to include a new set of versatile materials providing tactile, textual, and sensory capabilities in addition to full color.

The bleacher utilizes equipment and specific functions, such as wavelength and light source intensity, as well as time and temperature controls. The ProBleacher is compatible with prints utilizing VeroClear, VeroUltra Clear and VeroUltra ClearS materials. There are no special requirements for installation or site preparation.

Proper PolyJet photobleaching requires specific functions, such as wavelength and intensity light source, time and temperature control. Anything less will not deliver maximum transparency.

Typical applications include the packaging industry, for parts such as transparent bottles, glass, clear packaging, perfume, toys, optical transparent modeling, end-use parts, as well as electronics for clear screens, transparent parts, table lamps, tooling, production parts, camera lens, jigs and fixtures. The automotive segment also requires transparent parts for parts such as in lighting, clear components, mirrors, headlights, indicators, dashboard components, media screens.
