Pilot project

Every step of the way, we take together. In most cases we therefore start off with a Pilot Project. This means we’ll investigate important aspects such as your design, the required material needed for your application and the print strategy. Tests and prints are included to proof the concept. The appropriate hardware solution derived from the results of the project ensures to leverage the technology to its full potential.

The Pilot Project typically consists of three phases deliberately in place to minimize the risk for both parties. Every phase ends with a Go/No go moment which allows both parties to control the project, each phase assesses vital parts of the technical and commercial feasibility of the case.

Do you already know the feasibility of your project and which product you would like? Then select one of the other solutions below.

Robot extruder

The extruder can be operated as a stand alone unit. The whole system is operated through a Siemens touch screen, which runs our specifically designed software. This software is the result of years of experience in plastics extrusion, 3D printing, and machinery development.

The extruder is engineered to be lightweight for the sole purpose of mounting it directly on a robotic arm. With several types of robotic arms available on the market today, we are able to install the extruder on most types. Easy integration and implementation is possible on your robot or CNC machine. Enabling to control the extruder with your robot.

Print bed

The print bed provides a rigid, stable and easy to use building platform for large scale 3D printing. The working area of the print bed exists out of multiple aluminium bed profiles, specially designed for additive manufacturing, which guarantees a good mechanical bonding between the printed object and the bed. The print bed can be used for any thermoplastic printing material.

A tubular steel frame in combination with an independed heigth adjustable top layer ensures a rigid building platform for prints up to 2m x 1,2m.

AM flexbot

A modular solution capable of combing multiple processes such as 3D printing and milling.

The AM Flexbot is ideal for custom solutions to fit a specific application. Siemens Sinumerik is used to direclty control the Comau robot arm, meaning no robot controller is needed. This enables very accurate operation of the robot, especially in terms of position accuracy while travelling along a path.

The standard AM Flexbot includes;

  • Robot Extruder
  • Comau NJ60-2.2
  • Siemens Sinumerik 840D
  • Dryer
  • Working table (2m x 1,2m)
  • Safety caging
  • Pedestal for robotic arm
