The 3D printing process of super polymers and composites requires a homogeneously heated chamber to obtain high mechanical properties and to respect the dimensional tolerances on the part produced. The Roboze heated chamber process is the result of years of development and study of all the variables involved. ARGO 500 represents the state of the art.
Argo 500 is the first 3D printer for super polymers and composites equipped with the Roboze Automate technological ecosystem, which brings industrial automation to 3D printing. Thanks to the combination of hardware, advanced sensors, B&R PLC control, Roboze Beltless technology and total process control, Roboze 3D printing is repeatable, automated and controlled, like any other industrial production process.
ARGO 500 has been designed to produce finished parts using the highest performing super polymers and composites of the entire sector, monitoring the management of the material, from hygroscopic control to drying and preheating, up to the gradual cooling phase of the produced part. Everything is designed to achieve extraordinary mechanical performance.
In ARGO 500, all the process variables are controlled in a completely automatic way, eliminating the manual operations and the experience required by the operator - from the leveling of the build plate to the calibration of the extruder, from the insertion and automatic change of filament up to the functions of drying and preheating of the material. Everything is automated and controlled.
Thanks to the powerful B&R industrial computer it is equipped with, the ARGO 500 controls, analyzes and stores all the information and parameters used in the production process. The system, at the end of each print cycle, creates a data log recorded automatically in the internal memory. This allows the certification of every single part produced.
ARGO 500 is equipped with remote maintenance modules to analyze possible anomalies and to reduce the possibility of downtime for the advantage of productivity. The remote management feature includes the automatic sending of software updates to allow the ARGO 500 to evolve over time, acquiring new features, parameters and intelligence.
ARGO 500 processes super polymers and composites such as PEEK, CarbonPEEK, ULTEM AM9085F, CarbonPA and many others, bringing 3D printing to the world of customized industrial production, replacing metal and creating series up to 3,000 parts.
The performances achieved by super polymers and composites challenge the common conception of what a plastic can do, creating a new industrial perspective, made of incredible performance and circularity of raw materials.
