Roboze’s new Heat Treatment Process line is said to be capable of covering all the necessary phases for the production of functional prototypes and finished components with composite materials and high temperature super polymers.
The company’s product portfolio now includes a Filament Dryer, designed ad hoc to dry and monitor the quality of the filaments before and during the printing phase. This new device, in addition to increasing the quality of the finished products, offers the automatic loading of the filament, a function that is said to speed up pre-printing procedures.
In order to meet the needs of thermal postprocessing for the crystallization of the printed parts, ROBOZE includes within the process line the HT Oven, developed and produced with the aim of improving the dimensional stability at high temperatures and reducing any residual stress, due to the return of the parts (typical of semi-crystalline materials) or to any mechanical processing. HT Oven allows users to prepare the filaments between each print without waiting for the best conditions, considerably increasing the productivity of the final user, speeding up the production thanks to the large space housing the spools for the pre-printing multiple drying.
