Alessio Lorusso built his first 3D printer at 17 and went on to bootstrap his company Roboze. His enthusiasm and drive really shine through in this episode of the 3DPod. The founder talks of Roboze’s expansion into the U.S., where it will hire a lot of staff. He also discusses their parts service, Roboze’s work in materials and their Argo printer. Lorusso discloses that Roboze wants to produce its own materials and that it has done a lot of work characterizing them. He talks about finding the right investors and the right kind of relationships, as well.
Roboze is now a leader in the high-temperature FDM space, where PAEKs and other high-performance polymers are 3D printed. The high-temperature machines that make these parts out of materials such as PEI, PEKK and PEEK need to stop heat bleed in the chamber and control the print process very well. Lorusso touches on some more things also such as pre-drying and settings. He talks about Roboze’s efforts at controlling repeatability and getting the same part to print in New Zealand and Texas. He outlines the vision behind his business and plots a course forward. It’s easy to be swept away by Lorusso’s enthusiasm and grand plans and both Max and myself were! We hope that you enjoy this episode.
