Roboze Announces PRO Series of 3D Printers for PEKK and CF – 3DPrint.com

Robozemanufacturer of end-to-end additive manufacturing (AM) platforms, announced the release of its latest machines, the A pro and MorePRO. Roboze made the announcement at this year’s show AM Forum in Berlin.

Founded in Italy, Roboze also has a US headquarters in Houston. The company’s high-temperature extrusion printers are optimized to work with polymers such as PEEK, allowing users to quickly produce plastic components with the strength of metals, but at much lighter weights.

In a press release, the company’s founder and CEO, Alessio Lorusso, said, “With the Roboze PRO Series, production becomes stronger, faster and cheaper….[We have created it] with the sole purpose of providing a performance-driven solution for manufacturing companies… We believe that the quality of systems, printing process and finished components can help companies limit risk, increase chain safety of supply and to continue to keep their production alive and competitive.

Along with the new printers, Roboze also announced the release of two new materials: Roboze PEKK (polyetherketonketone) and ToolingX CF (carbon fiber). As Roboze points out in the press release, these materials are already widely used in industry. The notable aspect is that with the release of the PRO series, the company has given its customers the ability to use PEKK and heart rate materials on Roboze platforms.

Both materials are ideal for meeting the industrial requirements of the main sectors for which Roboze supplies equipment, in particular aerospace and oil and gas. More broadly, both the materials and the platforms are suitable for any metal component manufacturing sector for mass industrial processes, which obviously covers many markets. For example, Roboze gave the example of a customer who used the Plus PRO material and ToolingX CF to replace aluminum in the manufacture of molds for pulp products. Among other benefits, this has enabled the customer to achieve savings of more than 60%.

The other major upgrade of the new hardware is its improved integration with Roboze Prometheus Software, compared to previous Roboze machines. Along with a more reliable printing process, this could allow customers to cut printing times in half.

Roboze’s focus on the big picture puts it in an ideal position to continue growing with the AM industry, as a whole. The global perspective of the company extends not only to the production process, but to the entire supply chain. In addition, its headquarters in Houston gives it a real advantage in its ability to benefit from rising energy costs, which leads to increased activity in the oil and gas sector.
