Gantri Introduces World's First 3D Printer Specifically Designed For Manufacturing Consumer Goods At Scale
Gantri's Patent-Pending Dancer™ 3D Printer Sets the Stage for Just-In-Time Consumer Goods Manufacturing and Aggressive Growth.
Gantri, an award-winning, direct-to-consumer designer lights manufacturer, today unveiled its first 3D printer named "Gantri DancerTM." Patent-pending, Gantri Dancer is the world's first commercial multi-gantry cylindrical 3D printer. It leverages four gantries and a rotating circular build plate to print up to four times as fast as best-in-class desktop 3D printers today, while maintaining a high standard of product quality.
"Gantri's mission is to empower designers to create by using advanced technologies," said Christianna Taylor, PhD and CTO at Gantri. "Our goal is to push for the adoption of digital manufacturing as a viable alternative to today's industrial manufacturing system in producing high-quality consumer grade products. Dancer is the first 3D printer in the world specifically designed to manufacture consumer-grade products at the quality and speed that Gantri requires."
How It's Different
Starting in November 2019, Gantri will start migrating its entire printer fleet to Dancer at the Gantri Factory in San Leandro, California. As a result, Gantri estimates that the average "Made for you" production lead time will decrease from about four weeks currently to two weeks.
"Dancer is an amazing innovation. It combines advanced hardware, software and industrial engineering to make fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing drastically more efficient. In addition, we are investing in advanced robotics and AI to further improve our manufacturing platform from start to finish. This will allow us to diversify materials and categories for our designers and customers," added Christianna Taylor, PhD and CTO at Gantri.
