The company is bringing to FormNext four new advanced SL printers including the first ever fully automated high-speed all-in-one Stereolithography manufacturing cell. The company also revealed details of its ground-breaking partnership with one most dynamic additive manufacturing leaders, XYZ printing that is designed to accelerate the adoption of professional desktop 3D printers. Finally, DWS shared that in move to decisively expand its geographical coverage, it teamed up with XponentialWorks and opened a new facility and showroom in California to immediately expand its reseller network and provide local sales and marketing coverage throughout North America.

“This is a very exciting and defining moment for our company, “said Maurizio Costabeber, General Manager of DWS. “For over two decades we have been pioneering and disrupting segments of the additive manufacturing industry with our innovative Stereolithography systems and materials to the benefit of our customers” continued Costabeber. “Today we are taking bold steps to make additive manufacturing 4.0 real and affordable through our ground-breaking new products and our significantly expanding global presence,” concluded Maurizio.


At formnext DWS unveiled the XCELL 3D, the first ever fully automated high-speed integrated all-in- one Stereolithography manufacturing cell that delivers seamless push-button solution from file to part fast. The revolutionary XCELL takes DWS legendary print quality to a new level using a new printing process that delivers both outstanding speed, precision and post processing integration within a single manufacturing cell.

The XCELL automated 3D printer can deliver direct casting molds, and ready to use parts using DWS tailored polymers at standard manufacturing tolerances as well as at the most demanding dental and jewelry resolution. The integrated All-In-One solution delivers greater print speed and eliminates the labor associated with washing and curing manual labor altogether. Simply load a file and click the print button and the printer will autonomously print, wash, cure and deliver a ready to use part at a fraction of the time it takes using other printers. For greater ease-of-use, DWS also integrated its revolutionary XPOD cartridge, a clean and simple systems that speeds up the entire process and facilitated fully autonomous printing.

The DWS DigitalWax 028 J Plus is a professional 3D printer from DWS Additive Manufacturing, an Italian manufacturer. The patented laser stereolithography (SLA) technology of DWS Additive Manufacturing has been used on their industrial series for years.

This 3D printer is also available in a more accurate version called DWS DigitalWax 028 J Plus HR, with a spot laser of 17 µm instead of 22 µm for the DWS DigitalWax 028J Plus.

DigitalWax J systems are stereolithography machines dedicated to jewelry, based on Stereolithography (SLA) technology. The BluEdge laser head of the DigitalWax J polymerizes a photocurable burn owner resin. Depending on the machine model, those 3D printers can build from 80 to 1500 parts in 24 hours (depending on their size and complexity).

The DigitalWax 028J Plus is a rapid prototyping system.  With a good price-performance ratio and a low running cost, the DigitalWax 028J Plus enables the fabrication of up to 80 patterns within 24h. It is the perfect choice for fast production of high quality models. Contact us at [email protected] for more information about resin compatibility.
