IMTS 2018: Roboze, designer and manufacturer of AM systems for the aeronautics, defense, space and manufacturing sectors, showcases its FFF 3D printers. 

Roboze, designer and manufacturer of additive manufacturing (AM) systems for the aeronautics, defense, space and manufacturing sectors, showcases its One + 400 fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printer. This printer is dedicated to high-grade engineering materials such as PEEK and Carbon PA. It is equipped with the company’s beltless system technology, which delivers positioning accuracy ranging to 25 microns. Mechatronic movement of the rack and pinion of the X and Y axes enables this capability.

The 3D printer model features performance and volume upgrades, which are designed to provide consistency and stability. The upgrades enable the printer to offer higher efficiency levels than previous models, the company says

The  One + 400 3D printer is equipped with a 300 × 200 × 200 mm printing table. It also features an HVP extruder, enabling it to print highly viscous materials such as PEEK, and a compressed air cooling system. These features contribute to more reliable prints and increased heat exchange of the extruder body. The printer’s vacuum build plate system is said to provide greater adhesion between parts and build plate and is designed to speed up the printing processes.

    With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number of flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
