AONIQ, an Australian based company providing state of the art 3D printing technology to a wide range of industries, has designed and engineered the first truly industrial 3D printer. Its 888 is a state-of-the-art 3D printer capable of printing with the AONIQ PVC filament. Unlike PLA and ABS which allows rapid prototyping prints through honeycomb infill, AONIQ PVC enables solid object prints like injection moulding, providing stronger bonds.
Major advancement to other FDM/FFF 3D printers is the push release print head on the 888 which allows seamless swapping between materials. There is no need to clean the head. Run the remove filament process and once the head cools down press and release to swap the print head.
Guided by 4 linear rails and two massive ball screws the AONIQ 888 printer can print with an accuracy of the width of a human hair. The cables are protected by cable chains moving in one axis only which reduces cable breakages.
The print surface is one of the most critical parts for a 3D print and uneven print surface temperature causes adhesion failure. Over 95% of 3D printers require the print surface to be treated prior to starting a print to ensure strong adhesion. The print surface of the 888 is a AONIQ designed table which heats evenly across the print surface and keeps it at a stable temperature ensuring strong adhesion of the print to the table surface.
888 is compatible with two of the best software slicers on the market – Simplified3D and Cura. This provides the flexibility to fine tune 3D prints or use the basic setting already set up and start printing like a pro from day one.
The system also comes in an enclosure which has been custom designed to provide a safe PVC print operating environment. The enclosure eliminates any fumes through the built-in filtration system. Additionally, the enclosure also provides clean filtered power to avoid any print mishaps through dirty power. With its built-in camera in the enclosure, customers can receive on-line real time training and support as well as monitor their print jobs remotely.
