Tiertime is a famous Chinese 3D printer manufacturer, headquartered in Beijing. It is a pioneer in the country’s additive manufacturing market, becoming first with its UP BOX 3D printer and later with it’s new and improved UP Mini 2, which was globally released not long after its introduction.
The company aims to provide affordable, easy-to-use, and high-quality 3D printing solutions to companies in multiple fields, including architecture, education, engineering, and medicine. With its global distribution network serving more than 50 countries, they are garnering positive publicity.
The company is known to provide manufacturing and prototyping solutions in addition to 3D printers. Moreover, it plans to announce three new additions to its lineup at the recent event, along with a new software/hardware combination called Tiertime Print Queue.
The first of these new 3D printers is the UP Mini 2 ES, an updated version of its UP Mini 2. “The mini 2’s feature set, ease-of-use, and reliability have made it popular, particularly among educators and professionals operating on a nominal budget,” said Joseph Guo, International Sales and Marketing Director, Tiertime Corporation. “Updating a best-seller to take advantage of contemporary hardware and software was a priority.” The compact 3D printer is currently in production at the company’s factory.
The second is the new UP300 which is larger than the UP Mini 2 ES, featuring a build volume of 205 × 255 × 225 mm and an improved air filtration system, with separate HEPA and activated filters that recirculate the air in the build chamber to reduce UFP and VOC emissions.
The X5, also planned to be released this year, is a fully enclosed, continuous 3D printer, featuring a unique print bed vault with several spare beds inside. Once a print job is completed, the used bed is expelled from the 3D printer’s side and automatically replaced by the new Tiertime Print Queue, as a result it is ready for the next job.
