Roboze debuts 3D printer for manufacturing with super polymers
July 19, 2021 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Roboze, a manufacturer of industrial 3D printing technology, has developed a 3D printer with a heated chamber designed to produce large-scale parts with super polymers and composites for industrial applications.
The ARGO 1000 printer can now offer customizable, industrial parts and on-demand production at scale, and produce parts up to one cubic metre (nearly 40 inches by 40 inches by 40 inches).
The printer is intended for use in the aerospace, energy, transportation, MedTech and automotive industries, and uses sustainable super polymers and composites such as PEEK, Carbon PEEK and ULTEM AM9085F.
“Since we announced the opening of our new headquarters in North America earlier this year, we have grown our global customer base and invested in R&D to fulfill customer demand for a much larger 3D heated chamber super polymer printer,” says Alessio Lorusso, founder and CEO of Roboze, in a statement. “We have gone far beyond prototypes and are now building custom components for miniature satellites, gears for military-grade vessels, and parts for companies developing the nation’s sustainable infrastructure.”
The company’s industrial automation system and proprietary gear-based (beltless) technology allow the production of parts that are six times more precise than those made with belt-driven printers.
The ARGO 1000 will be available for commercial distribution in 2022.
