Italian award for industrial design is considered "the Nobel Prize of Design"VENTURA, Calif., June 27, 2018 — (PRNewswire) — Stereolithography leader DWS Systems announced today that it won Compasso d'Oro's honorable mention for its XFAB 3D printer. Using DWS's patented technology, the XFAB can turn a very wide variety of materials into solids while its intelligent cartridges allow for quick material changes with no leakages, handling of liquids or tray consumption costs. Established in 1954 and considered "the Nobel Prize of Design," the Compasso d'Oro panel selected 16 winners and 56 honorable mentions out of 1,200 selected products, 283 of which were evaluated by an international board. Award winners and entries gaining honorable mention are added to the Compasso d'Oro ADI Collection, which has been declared by Italy's Ministry of Culture to be of exceptional and historical interest.
"We are delighted that Italy's most prestigious prize for industrial design has recognized this innovative product," said DWS's CTO Maurizio Costabeber. "XFAB's cylindrical printing area offers 20% more printing volume than comparable printers and features a compact, desktop design for industrial and dental applications, creating jewelry, and educational purposes."
The XFAB 3D printer makes hi-res stereolithography technology available to everyone. It can create objects with a cylindrical volume of 180 x 180 mm, using a wide range of materials including acrylic resins, ABS-like and polypropylene-like materials, transparent, flexible and rubber-like materials, nanoceramic and wax-like materials. The materials are all designed, developed, and produced in-house by DWS, to guarantee the quality of the finished product and optimal physical-mechanical performance. The smart cartridges for the XFAB 3D printer have been designed to ensure that resin refills are easy, fast and safe. XFAB contains DWS's patented BluEdge® laser whose accuracy and precision can be calibrated to achieve smooth surfaces without any further finishing.
