Italian 3D printer producer Roboze will likely be showcasing its excessive temperature ROBOZE Xtreme sequence for the primary time in North America at RAPID+TCT 2019. The exhibition, this yr held in Detroit, will happen later this month from the 20th to 23rd of Could.
Based on Alessio Lorusso, founder and CEO of Roboze, “By way of demand, the North American is likely one of the most essential markets for Roboze.”
“The know-how we provide is the reply that at this time US businessmen are in search of to strengthen their productiveness with excessive temperature and composite supplies for the manufacturing of completed elements with the utmost precision.”
The brand new ROBOZE Xtreme sequence made its debut at Formnext 2018, and options the ROBOZE One Xtreme and ROBOZE One+400 Xtreme 3D printers. Each methods work utilizing the corporate’s patented Beltless System, designed for exact, industrial-use tasks, and its Excessive Viscosity Polymers (HVP) extruder.

The ROBOZE Xtreme sequence
The ROBOZE Xtreme sequence was created to bridge the hole between Roboze’s manufacturing additive manufacturing system, the Argo 500, and desktop-sized 3D printers, the ROBOZE One and ROBOZE One+400. As such, the One Xtreme and One+400 Xtreme are dubbed “desktop/manufacturing methods.” What this implies is that the capabilities of the large-scale Argo 500 have been replicated within the Xtreme sequence throughout a smaller footprint. The classification as outlined by the corporate is designed to carry the methods “nearer to the wants of the manufacturing sector,” i.e. producing light-weight polymer elements with a power to comparable steel.
One of many methods desktop/manufacturing is achieved within the Xtreme sequence is thru an upgraded Beltless System. The racks and helical pinions of the system are machined with chemical nickel plating rising the precision of X/Y axis by 15μm, in addition to offering improved corrosion resistance. For comparability, earlier Beltless System 3D printers from Roboze used racks and helical pinions produced from tempered metal, offering a 50μm layer accuracy.
One other improve within the Xtreme sequence, when in comparison with normal ROBOZE ONE and ONE+400 fashions, is the inclusion of the corporate’s Excessive Viscosity Polymers (HVP) extruder, facilitating the processing of more difficult supplies.
Each Xtreme Sequence 3D printer have bigger construct volumes than the desktop ROBOZE One and ROBOZE One+400 too. Within the One Xtreme the construct plate measures 300 x 250 x 200 mm, and within the One+400 Xtreme it measures 300 x 250 x 220 mm. For comparability, their predecessors measure 280 x 220 x 200mm.
Every Roboze XTREME 3D printer is accomplished by a Assist System Cupboard (SSC), designed for the discount of machine vibrations, to regulate moisture stage and deal with pre-heating. A Vacuum Field for vacuum era is housed contained in the SSC. This supplies adhesion to the print floor, improved first-layer flatness, and cool-down of the HVP extruder.

Tremendous and techno-polymers
Roboze’s vary of supplies has additionally expanded with the Xtreme sequence. Now, 12 completely different supplies, phrases “super-polymers” and “techno-polymers,” can be found together with Glass PA, PP, Carbon PP and Carbon PEEK.
Moreover, Roboze is offering ULTEM AM9085F filament supplied by SABIC. ULTEM AM9085F is a excessive efficiency amorphous polyetherimide filament primarily based on SABIC 9085 resin. A part of the “techno-polymer” vary, this materials supplies glorious thermal properties, distinctive dimensional stability, flame retardancy and good chemical resistance. The excessive performing traits give engineers distinctive flexibility and freedom for prototyping in addition to end-use elements.

The advantages of ULTEM, in addition to the Xtreme sequence will likely be mentioned at Roboze’s RAPID + TCT 2019 sales space no. 1665. For North American resellers within the new vary of methods ROBOZE may also offer a free 60 day trial of the Roboze One+400 XTREME on the present.
“RAPID +TCT will give us the chance to indicate the North American market the most effective of our 3D printers,” Lorusso provides.
“It should provide us the prospect to create new and attention-grabbing synergies, aiming at assembly the sturdy want of 3D printing options with excessive temperature superpolymers and composite supplies for steel alternative.”
