RS Components launches new RS Pro 3D printer

08 May 2018

RS Components have announced the launch of its new easy-to-use 3D printer, with open- source based additive-manufacturing machine delivers high level of customisability, easy maintenance and upgradeable future proofing.

The additive-manufacturing machine targets a wide range of users in manufacturing and many other commercial and business applications, as well as being ideal for educational purposes and at home for anyone who wants to design and build things quickly and at low cost. The combination of power, speed, precision, efficiency and its multitude of features make the RS Pro iTX 3D printer one of the best in its class.

Along with all RS Pro 3D printers that leave the factory fully constructed, the iTX is made in Britain and is ready to use straight out of the box. A key element of the machine is its upgradability: the high-quality machined parts and circuit boards are designed to be easy to replace and/or upgrade in a matter of minutes. All RS Pro 3D printers are open-source designed, which means they can easily be customised by advanced users and enthusiasts alike.

In particular, the iTX’s RS Pro VariBLOCK head unit offers future-proofing, as it is easily interchangeable and upgradable to other extruder head systems, allowing the machine to use various other materials as they become available. In addition, all serviceable parts including the printer’s hot-end and filament extruder can be easily maintained.

The machine uses the fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing process and comes with a fully heated build plate, handling temperatures in the 50 to 100°C range. The printer also features a metal gearbox-controlled filament extruder system to deliver maximum power and reliability. The extruder is designed for 1.75mm filaments and is capable of printing a wide range of materials, including ABS, PLA and PETG.

Another key feature of the printer is its integrated and fully upgradable PC computer, which is based on an AMD Kabini A4 quad-core processor, along with an AMD Radeon graphics card, Ethernet networking, 8GB of upgradeable memory, and an upgradeable 500GB SATA hard-disk drive. The integration of a PC into the machine enables a number of accessory upgrades, such as adding a webcam or other networking and remote-access capabilities.
