Industrial 3D printer manufacturer Roboze has announced the launch of two new 3D printers, as well as two additional printing filaments.
Replacing the old Roboze One product line, the new PRO Series includes the A pro and MorePRO machines, each running on Roboze’s signature high-temperature FFF technology. The latest versions are designed primarily for functional prototyping and tooling applications with high performance polymer and composite materials.
To complement the systems, the company has also expanded its filament portfolio with the launch of Roboze PEKK and Roboze ToolingX CF.
“With the Roboze PRO Series, production becomes stronger, faster and cheaper,” said Alessio Lorusso, Founder and CEO of Roboze. “We designed the Professional solution with the sole purpose of providing a performance-driven solution to manufacturing companies, expanding application possibilities with accessible materials and industrial-grade hardware-software solutions.”
The One PRO and Plus PRO
Both PRO Series competitors aim to consolidate productivity, print quality, versatility and cost-effectiveness into one neat package. Starting with the Roboze One PRO, we have a closed build volume of 300 x 250 x 200mm, a patented beltless motion system, and print accuracies down to 15 microns. The system even uses polymer films covering the build plate to improve part adhesion and is compatible with Carbon PA, PP, ABS-ESD, Flex-TPU, and more.
On the other hand, we have the reinforced Roboze Plus PRO, a true industrial-grade workhorse. Slightly larger with a build envelope of 300 x 250 x 220mm, the Plus PRO is designed to process the highest performing engineering polymers on the market including PEEK, Carbon PEEK, Carbon PA and new PEKK and ToolingX filaments CF of the company.
One of the standout features of the PRO Series is the unprecedented integration with the company’s Prometheus slicing software. The comprehensive yet easy-to-use print prep has now been given a new set of “UltraFAST” print profiles, allowing PRO 3D printer builds to run faster than ever when using Carbon filaments PA and ULTRA-PLA. Roboze also intends to release high-speed printing profiles for some of its other materials.
Additionally, Prometheus now also supports UltraQuality profiles for PEEK, Carbon PEEK and ToolingX CF filaments, with a focus on part quality.
Roboze PEKK and ToolingX CF
Regarding new materials, Roboze PEKK is a polyetherketonketone formulation defined by its thermal, mechanical and chemical resistance, as well as its flame retardant properties. Suitable for applications such as custom aerospace test rigs, the filament is strong, lends itself to isotropic parts and is ideal for high stress and high temperature conditions.
Similarly, Roboze ToolingX CF is a carbon fiber reinforced composite combining lightness, rigidity, excellent thermal stability and self-extinguishing properties. The material also exhibits chemical resistance, making it ideal for tooling components surrounded by organic acids, gasoline, oils, brake fluids and coolants.
According to Roboze, one of the main use cases for ToolingX CF is 3D printing molds for pulp products. A printed mold would replace a part that would typically be made from aluminum, reducing costs by more than 60% while enabling optimized geometries that would otherwise be impossible to manufacture.
