Creating detailed objects

A Large Volume printer T3000 and a Desk printer T1250 have already been installed at Gröner in Ulm. These printers are most suitable for components like moulds used in direct-to-shape printing and tools for producing three-dimensional signage objects.
The Signage and display industry can benefit with time and cost savings through efficient in-house manufacturing of detailed eye-catching signs and objects, which are 3D printed first and then combined with 2D printer products like textiles or films.
The T3000 offers a build volume of up to 1.5 meter in height and can print parts in wide variety of material. Both printers feature automatic bed levelling and with an incredible resolution of 0,02 millimeter (20 microns) for the T3000 and even 0,01 millimeter (10 microns) for the T1250 on the XY-axis, plus a resolution of 0,05 millimeter (50 microns) on the Z-axis; Tractus3D printers can print even the finest details!

The event took place in Munich from and offered visitors from the entire print and sign industry the opportunity to discover the latest products and innovations shown by the more than 700 exhibitors there.
