Additive Manufacturing has a key role in the fourth Industrial Revolution, that will drive us to the development of those smart factories capable to benefit from the technological advantages resulting from the integration of machines, production processes and final products; this has the aim to create new business models and increase the productivity of the companies involved. ROBOZE constantly analyses the global market’s changes in order to meet the real needs of the final customers.
At Formnext 2019, leading exhibition dedicated to Additive Manufacturing (taking place from 19th to 22nd of November at Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt), Roboze is getting ready to amaze visitors with new 3D printing solutions that will revolutionise the Additive Manufacturing world.
A constant investment in the materials engineering field and in the development of new technologies allowed ROBOZE to introduce in the market, since the beginning of its activity, a wide range of 3D printing solutions, capable to offer real advantages in terms of precision, performance, flexibility and personalization for those companies working in extreme sectors like Aerospace, Motorsport and Oil&Gas.
A new 3D printer to amaze the market
Product innovations from ROBOZE over the last few years have included our Beltless System, which removes belts from FFF 3D printing – and the HVP extruder - mechanical gem able to print successfully high viscosity super polymers like PEEK, Carbon PEEK and ULTEM™ AM9085F. Today ROBOZE has the aim to become leader for the production of finished parts with composite materials and high temperature super polymers thanks to a continuous product innovation, result of the R&D team’s hard work.
At Formnext 2019 in Frankfurt, ROBOZE portfolio will get wider with a new printer in the Production line, having a 350X300X300mm build plate: Argo 350.
A controlled heated chamber, capable to reach 180°C in just over an hour, allows Argo 350 to reduce the thermal shock of the material it is extruding and to cool it down more slowly in order to attenuate the mechanical stress and any residual tension, caused by the thermal treatment.
The HVP Extruder, designed to reach 450°C for the extrusion of composite materials and high temperature super polymers, in Argo 350 presents a double gear system to better dissipate heat, reduce wear phenomena, get the feeding system stronger and optimize the pressure on the filament.
A new filament to increase the performance on 3D printing systems
Furthermore, ROBOZE will announce the introduction of a new material available in worldwide exclusivity, SABIC EXTEM™AMHH811F, thermoplastic polyimide filament, developed using SABIC’s EXTEM™ resin. It is the highest performing amorphous filament in the world and it is ideal for industrial sectors like Automotive and Motorsport, Aerospace and Aeronautics, thanks to its excellent flame retardant properties and great dimensional stability: some practical examples are the thermal shields for automobiles or sensors for electric vehicles.
In addition to its mechanical and thermal resistance, EXTEM™AMHH811F has a significant flame resistance thanks to its 247°C TG. It has gained the UL Blue Card recognition with V0-075 certification on samples printed by ARGO with a thickness of 0,75 mm; this certification puts on the same regulatory level parts printed with ROBOZE 3D printing as the parts produced with traditional manufacturing like injection moulding.
These innovations, provided by ROBOZE R&D team, include the recent introduction of the Heat Treatment Process, a system developed to manage the entire manufacturing process – from pre-printing procedures to post-processing finishing – on those systems that are not equipped with heated chamber like the Desktop series (Roboze One and Roboze One+400) and the Desktop/Production series (Roboze One Xtreme and Roboze One+400 Xtreme). This approach is definitely focused on the management of the entire manufacturing process of high temperature super polymers and composite materials, in order to guarantee great advantages in terms of processing time and costs for those companies using ROBOZE solutions.
ROBOZE team will be ready to print strong like metal at booth 12.1-C61 at Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt: come to visit us to discover all the details about the next news by Roboze.
