3D Printers Perform at Scale

Description

For every stage of product development and manufacturing workflow, the FELIX Pro L and Pro XL additive manufacturing systems have been designed to perform at scale, and both have been constructed to ensure reliable output for much larger parts.

 

The printers have been developed with greatly increased build volumes, up to 144 Litres (the Pro L can build parts up to 300 x 400 x 400 mm; while the Pro XL has a build chamber of 600 x 400 x 600 mm). To ensure the quality and reliability, both of these larger systems incorporate highly engineered print chambers, which incorporate an enclosed warm zone and a cold zone. The warm zone supports consistent temperature control during the build, which is particularly important when printing materials with a high shrinkage factor, such as ABS, carbon fiber or Nylon. In contrast, the cool zone is where the electronics are housed, to prevent overheating and subsequent machine/build failure.

 

With the scale-up, however, both the Pro L and Pro XL have also been designed specifically to be easily portable — at installation or within a manufacturing setting.

 

The Pro L and XL system also come with a range of automated and intelligent features that remove many of the tedious and time-consuming hurdles often associated with additive manufacturing and speeding up processes. A stand-out example of this is the design of the dual nozzle; When the dual extruders are printing together they are at different print levels, avoiding any collisions and minimizing print failure. Moreover, if one nozzle is idle, it is automatically rotated out of the way so that there is no interference with the printed part, again avoiding damage to the print (and print failure).

 

The Pro L and XL models feature an intuitive and large 17-in. touchscreen module, with integrated print-server. This small but powerful octa-core computer offers users key functionality for their day-to-day operations, reducing workflow bottlenecks commonly experienced with 3D printers. Functions include real-time remote webcam monitoring, multi-user control via a web interface, easy print file management, WiFi and Ethernet connectivity, the ability to render g-codes, and the ability to create a time lapse of the print. With the touchscreen, the printer can be accessed via USB and/or WiFi and the unit can be connected in a (LAN) network or standalone. For network setup, the unit can control up to 7 stations for a single point. All of these features have been developed with the user in mind, based on what industrial users have told FELIXprinters they want.
