While there are many proponents today who recommend kicking back, taking more time to smell the flowers, meditate, and generally loll around for good measure, for the most part our world is set on the multi-tasking dial, and cranked up to high.
The competitive world of innovation is one of energy, exploring all the new technology available, and using it to the fullest extent —especially in 3D printing. And while the technology is often accused of being too slow, that’s rapidly changing due to the motivation of 3D printing startup teams around the world who are generally innovators and makers themselves—usually responsible for producing the most groundbreaking, unique products that we truly enjoy telling you about.
Most of us have often wished we had more hands or limbs with which to multi-task. This would definitely be the case with your 3D printer, and Kloner 3D is working on this with impressive results, where two printheads are able to work together while you are off doing all your other chores.
Headquartered in Italy, Kloner 3D takes making and developing to an even more elevated level. As is the trend right now with 3D printing becoming very steady on its feet—there are technological movers and shakers getting ready to rock our creative worlds even further, offering deeper and deeper layers of innovation and streamlining. All in all, it makes you wonder what’s in store for the future—which is certainly full of previously unimaginable creations.
Due to founder Maximilian Turchi’s background in complex and specific machining, his team has used their extensive experience in traditional manufacturing to take that to the next level with 3D printing, offering an array of 3D printers ranging from desktop to production series machines, which is where our interests lie today, in exploring their very unique double-headed 240TWIN.
The 240TWIN system offers not only power and versatility, but impressive opportunity for multi-tasking production as the two printheads can work on one 3D print together with great production results, or two different ones, each head working independently, for double production. When you add up the additional labor being offered by either the two working together, or apart, it’s an attractive equation.
A product of Turchi’s original research in medical machinery, makers and manufacturers are able to benefit from his comprehensive knowledge as a bit of a renaissance inventor presenting us with the doubleheaded 3D printer that can create production size prints using PLA, ABS, PVA, PET, Laywood Laybrick, and more, as they continue to work on alternative and unique materials for use with the 240TWIN.
Made with a fully enclosed aluminum structure, the 3D printer features an outer cover of PVS and plexiglass, along with the following specs:
- Print area of 500 x 240 x 140 mm (XYZ)
- Resolution layer of 0.05 to 0.8 mm *
- Motion resolution of XYZ 0.01 mm
- Diameter filament of 3 mm
- Diameter nozzle of 0.3 mm * * -0,5-0,8
- External dimensions of 690 x 460 x 600 mm (WxDxH)
- Weight – 47 kg
(** with optional nozzle)
This production series 3D printer, designed for small to medium products, is capable of allowing you to produce higher quality prints at greater volumes, increasing productivity, resolution, and creativity. You’ll save time and money, plus have the benefit of using cutting edge technology.
