Editor’s Pick: Additive manufacturing system for lightweight components
With the Roboze ARGO 1000 3D printing production system, the company says the goal is to reduce current pressures on global supply chains by replacing metal parts and components for extreme applications.
August 4, 2021
Roboze introduces the flagship Production Series solution, the ARGO 1000.
The ARGO 1000 can produce parts up to 1 cubic meter (nearly 40x40x40-in.) and transforms the way industries like aerospace, energy, transportation, medical technology and automotive can manufacture an increased number of lightweight components, the company says.
By using more sustainable, high-performance super polymers and composites such as PEEK, Carbon PEEK and ULTEM AM9085F, the goal is to reduce current pressures on global supply chains by replacing metal parts and components for extreme applications, according to the company. The ARGO 1000 will be available for commercial distribution in 2022.
The Roboze heated chamber allows a homogeneous working environment aimed at consolidating the parts with thermal fusion of each layer to achieve mechanical properties. This impacts the mechanical properties of the final component.
The production process of the ARGO 1000 is optimized to print parts with optimal performing formulations to the maximum of their properties, allowing for fast, flexible metal replacement production, the company says.
ARGO 1000 is equipped with an industrial automation system that integrates into a production workflow, allowing ability to program parts production, analyze data and quickly predict and resolve downtime, increasing efficiency and mitigating the risks of printing failure.
The Roboze ARGO 1000 3D printing production system will be available for commercial distribution in 2022.
