Roboze Argo 500 Sets the Standard for the Production of Large Scale Finished Components with High Temperature and Composite Polymers
With its new Argo 500, Roboze aims to become the leader in the large-scale 3D printing industry with high performance plastics. The Argo 500 is the result of constant research by Roboze engineers that revolutionised the 3D printing world, resulting in versatile and extremely precise printing solutions.
Over the next 6 months, there are already many deliveries of Argo 500’s planned. A lot of companies identified Argo 500 as the ideal additive manufacturing solution to meet the need of producing unique parts or small batches of components to be used for final applications in those sectors like Aerospace, Motorsport, Oil & Gas, and Automotive. From July, Roboze will start accepting the first orders of Argo 500 for 2020, estimating that this will quintuple its production.
In the meantime, the company has delivered and installed, for the global leader in the production of space rockets, the first Argo 500, the Production FFF 3D printing solution, able to realize finished parts with composite materials and high-temperature super polymers.
The Argo 500, thanks to a build plate of 500x500x500 mm, allows the production of large scale finished parts. In order to guarantee the perfect adhesion between the parts and the build plate, Argo 500 is equipped with a Vacuum System, that offers greater stability during the printing process of larger parts and guarantees the planarity of the component. The heated chamber, able to reach 180°C, can face the deformation phenomena of techno polymers, especially in large-scale sizes. The HVP Extruder allows to reach extrusion temperatures of up to 550°C with a specific technology dedicated to high viscosity polymers like Carbon PEEK, PEEK, and Ultem™ AM9085F.
Roboze techno polymers, with high thermal and mechanical resistance like Carbon PEEK, are able to replace metal alloys, allowing you to print functional parts for any kind of application. In the FFF 3D printing technology market, Carbon PEEK is the material that presents the most extraordinary properties for extreme applications. The addition of carbon fibers makes the PEEK matrix even more resistant in terms of mechanics and permits to go further in the Metal Replacement process in the motorsport, Oil & Gas, aeronautics and aerospace industries, where high mechanical, thermal and chemical resistance is fundamental.
“Roboze is going through a phase of exponential growth”, states Alessio Lorusso, CEO & Founder. “Our engineering team is working hard to offer the best FFF 3D printers for the realization of finished parts with composite materials and high temperature super polymers, guaranteeing precision and repeatability. The great demand we are receiving for Argo 500 demonstrates the growing interest of the market toward this kind of Production solutions. This year we’re almost sold-out with Argo 500, purchased by some of the biggest global industry leaders in the aerospace, defense and oil&gas sectors. The final goal is offering the best industrial 3D printers through the constant product innovation. The advantages for the end customers are tangible in terms of precision, flexibility, personalization and process accessibility, compared to traditional methods.”
However, there is much other news from Roboze as well: during Formnext 2019 in Frankfurt, the most important exhibition for the additive manufacturing world, the company will show new models of FFF 3D printers, new super materials and a revolutionary software to control and monitor the printing process. The goal is becoming leader in the manufacturing of finished parts with composite materials and high temperature super polymers through a constant product innovation, thanks to the Roboze R&D team.
With headquarters in Italy and a branch in US, the innovative 3D printing company Roboze designs and manufactures state-of-the-art FFF 3D solutions for additive manufacturing applications. The innovative Beltless System – that introduced the mechatronic movement of X and Y axes with a system of hardened steel rack and pinions – allows the company to produce functional prototypes and final applications with a range of high temperature super polymers and composite materials. Aiming at replacing metals, many industry leaders use Roboze 3D printing technology daily, reducing their production time and costs in the most extreme environments.
