Stratasys releases J850 Pro, a PolyJet 3D Printer without full colors for engineering prototyping

While full color has always been a defining characteristic of Stratasys PolyJet J8 Series 3D printers, the company is heading into a new market by launching the J850 Pro – which comes in at an affordable price point but doesn’t have full color.

Built on the capabilities of the powerful J8 Series printers, the J850 Pro lets engineers do prototyping concept verification, design validation, and functional performance with materials like transparent VeroUltra™ Clear which simulates acrylic.

We’ve seen the value to customers of our PolyJet 3D printers – in throughput, accuracy, reliability,
and multi-material capabilities – and are excited to have the J850 Pro now bring that value to our engineering customers, at an attractive price.Shamir Shoham, design vice president at Stratasys

The J850 Pro is capable of jetting seven materials simultaneously with the the familiar 490 x 390 x 200mm build volume, and grayscale Vero materials: Vero Clear, Vero Ultraclear, Agilus, and Digital ABS.

Typical applications well served by the J850 Pro for industries such as consumer products and electronics, automotive, medical devices, service bureaus, and the education market include:

    • simulation of textures
    • product labeling
    • shock absorption
    • fit and functional testing
    • over-molding
    • living hinges
    • injection molds
    • embedded sealing elements
    • parting lines simulation
    • structural mechanics and integrity
    • see-through elements such as transparent materials for light guiding applications
    • micro-fluidics utilizations
The ability to easily create prototypes delivers great value to engineering teams in different stages of the development cycle. In addition, the J850 Pro’s multi-material capabilities and large throughput enables them to test different designs, textures, and material properties to accelerate time to market and precisely deliver on user needs.Ofer Libo, Product Manager for the J850 Pro

In addition, a new Super High Speed Mode used in tandem with DraftGray material also promises the ability to do quick turnaround concept models, that’s double that of legacy systems.

The J850 Pro complements the existing J850 Prime for designers and engineers who also need full-color printing. If the customer requires full-color printing in the future, the J850 Pro is software upgradeable to the Prime version.
