3D printing is really beginning to gain traction in the country of Italy. While Italy is a relatively small area when compared to other nations, their 3D printing contributions definitely have been making a larger impact than most other larger countries’. There are already several well-known 3D printer manufacturers who call Italy home, as well as quite a few individuals who have created spectacular inventions using the technology.
Now, one company is bringing to market what they call “the first Italian professional 3D printer.” That company is Roboze, and they are introducing the Roboze One 3D printer.
“Roboze One will be launched on the 17th Of March, during an official public event in Bari (Italy),” Ilaria Guicciardini, Social Web Marketing Director of Roboze, tells 3DPrint.com. “It’s the first Italian Professional 3D Printer.”
The Roboze One will feature a large 280 x 250 x 250 mm build chamber and print with an incredible 50 micron resolution, which the company tells us is attributed to their “revolutionary mechanical movements.” The X and Y axes utilize a double pair of hardened steel helical racks with a pinion. This allows for a precise positioning accuracy of 0.05mm.
“The aluminum supports, made by CNC precision, combined with ball bearings and with stainless steel H7 guides for linear motion, ensure fluidity in sliding at high speed with a low coefficient of friction,” the company tells us. “This allows for rapid and extremely accurate positioning with noticeable results in terms of resolution and speed of production.”
The Z axis, on the other hand, features a C7 ball screw with a flexible motor coupling, which the company says will allow for high accuracy and durability, wear resistance, and significant axial stiffness. The Roboze One also features a new mechanism of extrusion, although the company did not go into that many details about it. It is capable of constantly controlling the flow of material and deposition of this material in layers.
Here are some more specifications of this new 3D printer:
- Build Area: 280 x 250 x 250 mm
- Printer Size: 550 x 450 x 500 mm
- Resolution Settings: Very High (50 microns), High (70 microns), Average (150 microns), Low (200 microns)
- Print Time: Recommended speed of 60-90 mm/s, and maximum speed of 250 mm/s
- Frame: Galvanized steel and powder coated INOX H7 bars for X and Y forklift
- Printable Materials: PLA, ABS, NYLON, PMMA
- Filament Diameter: 1.75mm
- Nozzle Size: 0.4mm
The Roboze One 3D printer is priced at €3990 (VAT included), and will begin shipping worldwide on April 1st. It comes standard with one roll of PLA filament, a 4GB SD card, tools needed to replace the hot-end spooler, a hot-end ‘spare part’, a glass or aluminum base, a calibration model, a power cable, and a USB cable.
