Roboze is launching a new high impact polymer extrusion (FFF) 3D printing solution that will enable production of high end finished parts for industrial, aerospace and automotive sectors, meeting ever-growing demand for high performance machines and consumables. The new machine, named ARGO 500, will be presented at formnext, with a global preview that will kick off the first series of Roboze systems targeted at industrial production.
The name “ARGO” is inspired by Greek mythology. It refers to the ship that accompanied a group of 50 heroes under the guidance of Jason to recapturing the golden fleece. The association reflects the strong character of the Argonauts linked to the research effort in waters where no one had gone before.
“Roboze CARBON PEEK adds extra thermal stability and stiffness to our already know PEEK. The addition of specially selected Carbon Fibers improve mechanical properties of the material and increase its HDT maintaining its properties even at a higher temperature than neat PEEK. ” says Simone Cuscito, Roboze CTO and Materials Scientist.
ARGO 500 is the result of careful market scouting, intensive research and strategic relationships with adopters in these first years of activity working with major players in the aerospace and motorsport sectors. The new Roboze solution will enable production of finished parts with a print volume of 500x500x500 mm using high-performance techno-polymers such as PEEK, ULTEM AM9085F, Carbon Pa and the new CARBON PEEK. Roboze’s CARBON PEEK is PEEK reinforced with carbon fiber which makes it suitable for even more extreme application challenges, focusing on production of finished structural parts in areas that require high-level performance.
