3D Printing Industry reports on Italian 3D printer manufacturer Roboze, who “will be showcasing its high temperature ROBOZE Xtreme series [of 3D printers] for the first time in North America at RAPID+TCT 2019.” This year, the exhibition will be held in Detroit.
Roboze’s Founder and CEO Alessio Lorusso explains his reasoning for this showcase: “in terms of demand, North America is one of the most important markets for Roboze. The technology we offer is the answer that today’s US businessmen are looking for to strengthen their productivity with high temperature and composite materials for the production of finished parts with the maximum precision.”
“The new ROBOZE Xtreme series made its debut at Formnext 2018, and features the ROBOZE One Xtreme and ROBOZE One+400 Xtreme 3D printers. Both systems work using the company’s patented Beltless System, designed for precise, industrial-use projects, and its High Viscosity Polymers (HVP) extruder. The ROBOZE Xtreme series was created to bridge the gap between Roboze’s production additive manufacturing system, the Argo 500, and desktop-sized 3D printers, the ROBOZE One and ROBOZE One+400.”
As for the Beltless System, “The racks and helical pinions…are machined with chemical nickel plating increasing the precision of X/Y axis by 15μm, as well as providing improved corrosion resistance. For comparison, previous Beltless System 3D printers from Roboze used racks and helical pinions made from tempered steel, providing a 50μm layer accuracy.”
Lorusso concludes: “RAPID +TCT will give us the opportunity to show the North American market the best of our 3D printers. It will offer us the chance to create new and interesting synergies, aiming at meeting the strong need of 3D printing solutions with high temperature superpolymers and composite materials for metal replacement.”
