Wax Pattern 3D Printers

For over 60 years 3ntr have been providing class leading manufacturing solutions based on a simple win-win mantra.
Thanks to continuous research and development 3ntr supply precise, reliable and cost-effective wax pattern 3D printers, software and raw materials for the investment casting sector.

Jdeal-Form is the native brand of the 3ntr company founded almost 60 years ago by Josè Ardizzoia, to produce small metal parts for corsetry.
Over the years, with the entry into the company of the sons Davide and Ilaria, the evolution is constituted by the continuous use of new technologies, which have allowed constant product and material development that has led to a position of dominance despite constantly emerging competition.
All 3ntr machines are built using ultrasonic cutting, induction heating, micronized polymers, laser cutting, PLCs, image processing and linear motors.

Wax Pattern 3D Printers

A4v4

With a working envelope of 295 x 295 x 200 mm, 0.011mm mechanical precision and the ability to 3D print complex shapes, you will find the A4v4 on the shop floor as well as in the R&D labs in several foundries around the world. 

A2v4

With a working envelope of 600 x 300 x 500 mm imagine the options these wax pattern 3D printers will provide you with! Constructed with stainless steel components and resilient manufacturing controls for 24/7 performance. This machine prints Zwax like no other!

Spectral

With 4 nozzles and a printing envelope of 300 x 300 x 300 mm and a fully automated nozzle/plate levelling with positioning accuracy of 0.005 mm. What more do you need from your wax pattern 3D printers? The Spectral also comes with 4 (yes 4!) Vento drying units, a high power liquid cooling 10″ touch screen, jam detection and end of spool detection.

Dryers and Filtration Systems

Storm

Storm is the perfect match to our wax pattern 3D printers, it groups all the functions that are needed for uninterrupted service into one sleek package. A high performance print-server with webcam lets you control the machine from anywhere.

Vento

The Vento unit is the ideal partner to our wax pattern 3D printers. The drying profiles deliver excellent results in the shortest time with the least energy. The easy to use touch screen gives you real time monitoring of your drying parameters. The system has a built-in NFC reader to automatically set optimal drying parameters.  

F1 Filtering Unit

No matter what material you are using, even the safest materials will emit micro particles. The F1 filtering unit is fitted with an industrial HEPA and activated carbon filter. This device cuts most emissions for a safer workplace. The F1 units are compatible with all the A2 and A4 3D printers and fitting a filtering unit is done in a matter of minutes.

zWAX Material

Low Ash Content

Why invest in expensive wax pattern tooling when you can produce 3D printed single parts and optimise designs using our zWAX material? 

This material is your ideal investment casting partner with low ash content and a high melting point.

Alloy Compatible

With zWAX it is possible to produce wax patterns for use with special alloys with highly respectable mechanical characteristics, often denser and more tenacious than those obtained with laser sintering.

Existing Processes

The zWAX 3D printable wax materials emulates the melt and burn-out characteristics of standard casting waxes. 

This 3D printing material drops seamlessly into existing wax casting processes.
