FelixPrinters Launches Pro 3 3D Printer
FelixPrinters has launched its Pro 3 3D printer for industrial applications.
Edited by AM Staff
The Pro 3 3D printer from FelixPrinters is an industrial manufacturing tool for every stage of the product development workflow with an optimal price/performance ratio, according to the company.
The Pro 3 printer incorporates automated motorized calibration, a quick-swap print head and fast rotation of print heads (less than 10 sec.) in the dual-head configuration, and features a dedicated flexplate to easily and quickly remove printed parts. It also offers quick heat-up and cool-down of the print heads, meaning that the dual-head print times are reduced by a factor of two. Overall temperature control has been improved on the Pro 3 together with optimal object cooling with dual high-power blowers, which results in more consistent extrusion of filament and consequently more accurate print results.
The Pro 3 features a touchscreen module with an integrated print server. It is a small and powerful octacore computer, which provides a smooth and intuitive user interface, real-time remote webcam monitoring, multi-user control via a web interface, print file management, Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, and the ability to render G codes and create a time lapse of the print.
Arizona Home Floors considered buying a mold to produce a plastic version of its DustRam product. But when a prototype proved durable enough to withstand working conditions, the production strategy shifted to 3D printing.
