EnvisionTEC, a leading global manufacturer of professional-grade 3D printers and materials, today launches a new power protection system line of accessories to ensure that voltage fluctuations and power outages don’t disrupt the 3D printing process for its users.
More than just a battery backup system, the new EnvisionTEC Power Protection System (PPS) conditions or cleans the power supply from noise and other issues that may interfere with high-value 3D print jobs, where a consistent supply of energy is crucial.
In recent years, energy supplies have become less reliable in key markets worldwide, including the United States, where the number of power disruptions has been increasing, causing millions of dollars in losses, according to Energy.gov and other sources. Oftentimes, consumers may not even realize that technology hardware downtime is caused by power-related problems.
“Because our customers are power users — professionals and manufacturers who rely on their 3D printers for commercial products and significant production — EnvisionTEC is proud to offer an approved energy management solution that protects 3D printers and the parts they are building from voltage fluctuations,” said CEO Al Siblani.
The company is launching its new line of power protection accessories with the EnvisionTEC PPS DLP for its Vida and Micro desktop printers, which are more frequently used in professional office environments rather than industrial facilities.
The PPS DLP will ensure that desktop users such as jewelers, orthodontists and dentists have a consistent supply of power while they may also be simultaneously using other machinery and equipment in their facilities, such as mills and welding tools, which can disrupt consistent energy flow within a building.
The EnvisionTEC PPS line of accessories will be available globally in both 120V or 230V versions, with additional PPS models to follow for EnvisionTEC’s larger Perfactory and 3SP printers.
