“OTworld” in the German city of Leipzig is the world's most important meeting place for all manufacturers, retailers and service providers in the field of modern medical aids and equipment.
The Italian WASP – World's Advanced Saving Project of Massa Lombarda, in the province of Ravenna, will be present from 10 to 13 May in Hall 05 Stand B08 with the new offer for the Digital Orthopedic Workshop and two new 3D printers from the Industrial Delta WASP line large format, the 4070 FX and 4070 HDP.
It will be possible to book an appointment for a consultation with a WASP technician to help understand the feasibility and the path necessary to bring 3D printing into the production of corsets and orthoses.

4070 FX and the state-of-the-art vacuum plate retention system VAC

First of all, the innovative VAC (Vacuum Active Control) vacuum printing plate retention system, which allows the printing plate to be replaced in a few seconds, guaranteeing the total absence of micro-movements during the printing phase, even at high temperatures.
The VAC also ensures the use of printing plates of different types compatible with the printing material and after printing, the plate can be curved manually allowing easy removal of the printed detail.
4070 FX is quieter and more precise thanks to the new motor drivers, more powerful and solid with the new stepper motors and lighter thanks to the introduction of the new carbon arms.
4070 FX is equipped with a single Ø2.85mm XFLEX direct filament extruder capable of reaching 280°C.
The XFLEX extruder of the 4070 FX is equipped with a double traction gear in hardened steel, capable of doubling the grip on the filament and tripling the force exerted thanks to a reducer. The nozzles are easily interchangeable: 0.4mm, 0.7mm, 1.2mm.

4070 HDP: how to extrude standard, technical and recycled thermoplastics from pellets

4070 HDP is also part of the Delta WASP industrial line and is designed to print directly from the granule, this allows for considerable savings in time and money.
More robust, more precise and silent, like its sister model 4070 FX, it is equipped with a pneumatic loading HDP extruder, capable of extruding standard, technical and recycled thermoplastic materials starting from pellets, i.e. from the least expensive granule.
An innovative capacitive sensor located on the extruder body detects the presence of material and autonomously requests it from the main 5-litre tank located on the side of the printer, interrupting the process if the material is finished.

WASP is there to respond to needs: food, home, health, energy, work, art and culture

WASP – World's Advanced Saving Project is a company founded in 2012 in Massa Lombarda that designs, manufactures and sells Made in Italy 3D printers all over the world.
The wide range of WASP 3D printers has been developed to respond to human needs: food, home, health, energy, work, art and culture.
Inspired by the Potter wasp, which builds its nest with material recovered from the surrounding environment, WASP was born with the aim of developing large-scale 3D printers, to build houses with natural materials available in the area.
The main objective of the company is to provide effective benefits to humans through technological innovation and research.
In 2012 WASP presented the first printer, the Power WASP, but soon after the company characterized its range with the small and large Delta line up to the generation of the Delta line WASP Industrial WASP 3MT, WASP 4070, and WASP 2040 .
Today the Delta WASP Clay line is the market leader thanks also to the experience gained in the field of architecture.
These new Clay 3D printers optimize the LDM system by 3D printing dense fluid materials and industrial clays continuously and in large sizes.
WASP presents in Detroit a technological advancement in the large 3D printers of the Industrial line and the Clay line and offers 10 new products that meet the market demands for the extrusion of biopolymers, super-technopolymers, recycled materials, pellets, natural material and raw earth, and industrial clay.
