Roboze launches the reinforced Roboze One 3D printer, which is designed for users that need material versatility.               

The 3D printer includes a new stainless-steel extruder that reaches temperatures as high as 300°C and widens the company’s techno-polymer offerings to include Carbon PA, an engineered polymer that is 20 percent reinforced with carbon fiber; Nylon 6, a polyamide with high mechanical resistance that is used in metalworking; ASA, a techno-polymer with high resistance to weather, UV rays, yellowing and aging that is used in automotive components and outdoor applications; PC-ABS, which mixes the mechanical properties of PC with the high workability of ABS and is said to produce defined parts with good surface finish; ABS-HD, which combines the mechanical properties of ABS with a strong level of superficiality for use in post-production operations; and ABS-ESD, an advanced polymer with an ABS base modified with carbon nanotubes and process/loss modifiers for measurement and survey applications, HDD components, envelopes and connectors.

The company says that a 3.5" touchscreen display makes the 3D printer more user friendly. Other enhancements include electrical components such as 24-V stepper motors with corner division ranging to 128 steps, emergency sensors and buttons, new ventilation systems, external SD card inputs and USB ports.
