High-performance printer launched – for rapid prototyping and manufacturing applications
21 February 2018
Introducing the CEL RoboxPRO, an easy-to-use additive manufacturing machine that delivers super-fast printing and comes with a fully enclosed locking build chamber, making it ideal for use in education and professional environments.
Announced by RS Components (RS), the printer offers high-end specifications and exceptionally fast print speeds. The dual extrusion machine primarily targets professional users, including electronics and mechanical engineers involved in creating designs that require advanced rapid prototyping capabilities to quickly realise their product concepts in durable, engineering-grade materials with water-soluble support material.
A unique feature of the new RoboxPRO is the large interlocking door, designed to protect the printer’s fully enclosed build chamber with high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) and active charcoal air filtration, which prevents unnecessary disturbance or damage to print builds in progress – while ensuring users are not exposed to potentially toxic fumes. This vital feature makes RoboxPRO highly suitable for professional or industrial environments and ideal for educational establishments such as universities, colleges or schools.
Using Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing technology, a key differentiator of RoboxPRO is its patented needle-valve technology, which makes the 3D printer the fastest and most efficient dual extrusion machine available. The dual-nozzle printing capability means the unit can print two different colours, two different materials or with a dedicated material supporting the main part, including water-soluble or breakaway.
In keeping with the previous generation of Robox 3D printers, RoboxPRO print heads are easily replaceable and can be upgraded to deliver extended and enhanced capabilities in the future, such as paste extrusion. The machine is designed for 1.75mm filaments and is capable of printing a wide range of materials, including PLA, ABS, PETG, TPU, PC and nylon.
Another key specification includes a build volume of 210 x 300 x 400mm and a wide choice of layer resolutions from 0.5mm for ultra-fast printing, down to layers as small as 0.05mm (50-microns). RoboxPRO uses onboard controls with an integrated, full-colour 5-inch touchscreen display interface to enable users to change print settings, make build-plate calibrations and manage its connectivity options, which include Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB.
Other features of RoboxPRO include a climate-controlled build chamber, which features a HEPA filter and active charcoal air-purification system; adaptive bed levelling with no manual calibrations; an interchangeable, hassle-free build plate with no glue or tape required; and the Robox SmartReel material recognition system, which greatly simplifies the printing process with automatic print settings and job costings. RoboxPRO is compatible with other brands of filament, however, including Verbatim.
Compatible with Windows, Apple and Linux operating systems, RoboxPRO is also supplied with the intuitive Robox AutoMaker software.
RoboxPRO is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
