We have changed the rules of the game, bringing mechanical precision to the FFF 3D printing technology.
To do this it was necessary to rethink everything, starting from the most important aspect. The kinematics of the axes.
By eliminating the belts, and introducing a direct mechatronic movement of the X and Y axes entrusted to hardened steel rack and pinion, we have finally introduced real work precision. How can we say precise a movement that relies on rubber belts, subject by their very nature to problems of various kinds including deformation, repeatability of movement, wear and tear, the need for continuous calibrations? It can’t be done.
In a typically direct handling system such as the Beltless system from Roboze, the positioning accuracy and repeatability of the movements is ensured by the gear teeth, in our case the helical gear also ensures smoothness of movement, quietness and positioning precision equal to 0.4 mil (0.01 mm).
Forget the straps. It's in the past!
