Local CNC machining systems and large-format printing specialist Advanced Machinery which supplies and supports the AM.CO.ZA range of vinyl cutting, large-format printing and CNC and laser cutting systems in the South African market is establishing itself as a 3D printing systems industry specialist as well.

Advanced Machinery currently supplies the PrintUP range of 3D printers comprising models capable 3D printing of channel lettering up to 800x800x85mm (K8 model) for the signage, point-of-sale and shopfitting market. The PrintUP K8 model is capable of handling a range of different filaments types including PLA and PETG. The PrintUP K8 features a hotbed which is required for handling PETG but can also be used for the handling of PLA which does not require a hotbed. This offers customers increased production flexibility.

The PrintUP K8 3D channel letter printer features a single nozzle but with the ability to handle two different filaments at once. This allows for filaments of different colours to be used or for opaque and translucent filaments which can be printed for use with or without LED light strips. The PrintUP K8 3D channel letter printer is an FDM filament printer capable of printing a wide range of fonts for channel lettering applications, which is an area where Advanced Machinery has a great deal of expertise.

It can print items up to 192x120x100mm in size. Resin is completely inert once cured which means that it can even be used for such applications as dentistry.

For mid-sized items, Advanced Machinery has a Fast Pellet 3D Printer which extrudes plastic pellets to create 3D printed items in sizes up to 500x500x500mm, the G5 model.
