That’s until now…
It seems as if there are manufacturers in nearly every nation of the developed world who are at least exploring recent advancements within the additive manufacturing industry, in order to see if such technologies may present them an opportunity. EDM Machinery, based in Tallinn, Estonia, is one of these manufacturers.
The company, a spin-off of the University of Tartu, launched back in 2013 and has made a name for themselves within the market for laser cutters and engraving machines. Considering the simlarities between such machines and Cartesia-based 3D printers, the entrance into the additive manufacturing space seems an obvious one. This week they’ve officially unveiled their first 3D printer, which is also the first ever to be designed in the nation of Estonia.
“The build of this 3D printer has been inspired by milling machines and it is mostly made of stainless steel, which makes our machine much sturdier than most of the printers available on the market,” Matis Averin, a former member of the ESTCube team and the designer of this 3D printer said, according to EstonianWorld.com.Powered by Aniwaa
Although details are somewhat lacking, and the exact date in which this new printer will be available has yet to be released, we have been able to uncover a decent amount of information on EDM’s machine. Below you will find some of its general specifications:
- Build Envelope: 300 X 300 X 250mm
- Print Technology: FFF
- Filament Type: ABS, PLA, HIPS, PE, & PA
- Filament size: 1.75mm
- Connectivity: USB, Bluetooth, SD card slot
The company has been working on this machine for the last year and a half, and finally feels like they have something worthwhile. With dual extruders, the EDM 3D printer is able to print using two colors at once. Its steel frame makes it sturdier than most of the machines on the market today, and its enclosed build chamber allows for a pristine printing environment. The company is also offering PLA filament for sale in various colors in 1kg spools for 25€.
It will be interesting to see how this new 3D printer performs once it begins shipping, and what other 3D printing innovations will emerge from Estonia in the months ahead. Discuss this new 3D printer in the EMD Machinery 3D Printer forum thread on 3DPB.com.
