The Roboze One+400 is a powerful industrial 3D printer that enables the use of advanced thermoplastic materials for additive manufacturing applications. That means the ability for PEEK 3D printing on an accessibly priced desktop FDM 3D printing system. The Roboze One+400 presents two new unique features:
A beltless mechanical movement system – a patented mechatronic movement system that involves the total removal of the drive belts in favor of simple and effective traditional mechanics, as the combination of a rack and pinion. The result is the ability to produce precise and high quality parts.
Accessibility to high-end thermoplastic materials – the Roboze One+400 owes its name to a pair of new extruders, designed and internally produced by the company, able of reaching a temperature of up to 400°C and which, together with other innovations inside the machine, enable printing of 12 different types of high-performance thermoplastic materials such as PEEK, PEI and CARBON PA (Nylon12 filled with Carbon fiber). Two of these materials: PEEK and PEI are available today only in high-cost production 3D printers.
Roboze PEEK: What you need to know
PEEK is a semi-crystalline, technologically advanced thermoplastic polymer. It combines excellent mechanical properties and excellent chemical resistance to a range of extraordinarily broad operating conditions, ranging from -60 ° C to 260 ° C, both in air, dry or wet and immersion conditions.
Its main features are high mechanical strength, stiffness and hardness; excellent dimensional stability; fire resistance to self-extinguishing; the very low flue gas density; resistant to high and low temperatures; excellent abrasion and wear resistance; good balance between stiffness, strength and toughness and a low coefficient of linear expansion
Applications for PEEK
Additive manufacturing/Metal replacement applications: in which PEEK is popular in the following industries: aerospace, automotive, defense & military. PEEK for medical applications. The mechanical, thermal and chemical properties of PEEK and the fact it can be approve as a biocompatible material makes it an excellent solution for medical applications and devices, especially for pre-designed gigs and surgery tools. As developers also of new materials, thanks to national and international scientific partnership, we are close to completing the Peek with medical grade which initially will allow the printing of surgical guides certified for contact with mucous membranes, blood etc.
By enabling the use of advanced materials, Roboze offers its users a powerful yet affordable solution, together with the advantages of an ‘easy-to-use’ desktop 3D printer. This will open up a wide range of new possibilities, especially for SME’s, for a variety of applications in several different industries requiring only a limited amount of initial investments.
