I just said it last week, but I’ll say it again: Roboze moves fast. The company has been determinedly expanding across the world over the course of only a few months, with several new partnerships putting them in India as well as all over the EMEA region. Their biggest news of the year, though, came in April, when they released the Roboze One +400, the first low-cost 3D printer capable of printing materials such as PEEK and PEI. Rarely seen in the desktop 3D printing market because of their difficulty to print, these high-performance materials are just two of the dozen that the Roboze One +400 was capable of printing with its dual extruders.
Now, the Italian company has announced that they have revamped the Roboze One +400, enhancing its capabilities and making it a fully industrial 3D printer. It’s bigger, with a 565 x 465 x 900 mm footprint, and a 200 x 200 x 200 mm build envelope. The dual extruders have been redesigned and optimized for heat dissipation, and the electronics have been regenerated to make the printer even more powerful yet still simple to operate. In fact, it’s even more user-friendly now; the wire system controlling filament deposition now has a pre-tensioning feature that automatically determines the performance of each spool based on the print materials for optimal performance.
Speaking of materials, the Roboze One +400 can now print with 13 different materials, making it even more versatile and suited for heavy industrial applications while still carrying an affordable price tag.
“As an innovative and visionary company, we always pay close attention to the current needs of the market, but above all we focus on the future needs,” said Alessio Lorusso, Founder and CEO of Roboze. “We see large high technological companies looking for ways to implement 3D printing in their manufacturing processes. For this purpose, they must acquire new and powerful capabilities that will enable them to explore new applications. The latest GE move in acquiring metal printing capabilities has marked the acceleration of this race. Our new Industrial 3D printer aim to position our technology in the frontier of plastic additive manufacturing solutions. We look forward to seeing how far our customers will stretch the capabilities of our cutting-edge 3D printing technology.”
It doesn’t look as if the Roboze One +400 is still available in its previous form – it’s now gone full industrial. It’s still conveniently compact, however, and should fit easily into any manufacturing or office setting. It was always more of an industrial printer anyway, and it remains a high quality machine capable of producing extremely durable, tough plastic parts to rival metal parts.
Roboze will be at the advanced manufacturing conference formnext next month in Frankfurt from November 15 to 18. 3DPrint.com will be in attendance as well, so be sure to seek us out in addition to stopping by Roboze’s booth and checking out their new, revamped One +400.
