The solution to the problems of printing large-size elements is the use of a 3D printer head fed directly with plastic granulate.
It is a solution available on the market in the form of heads that can be installed on an industrial robot arm or in a Cartesian system. Such heads for 3D printing are offered by Zamak Mercator.
The offer includes heads built on the basis of single-screw extruders with screw diameters from 16 to 60 mm. The offered heads for 3D printers achieve efficiency from about 1.5 kg / h for a head with a diameter of 16 mm to about 150 kg / h for a head with a diameter of 60 mm. Thanks to the Zamak Mercator FDM technology, it becomes possible to create complex geometries and parts with internal cavities while maintaining very high 3D printing efficiency.
High performance additive manufacturing creates significant competitive advantages for organizations. Whether you need local production of spare parts on demand. Custom products, lightweight designs, functional integration or completely new ideas. Industrial efficient large-volume 3D printing is perfectly suited to your needs and now has capabilities far beyond what is required for rapid prototyping.
