Infinite building platform

27/09/2018 - At Formnext 2018 Robot Factory presents its the brandnew 3D printer »Sliding 3D« that uses the thermoplastic material extrusion technology. It is equipped with an »infinite« building platform and 45° extruder.

Exploiting at the same time the moving building platform, the inclination of the printing layers and the layers translational function, »Sliding 3D« can reduce support structures usually needed to print a 3D model, as the company says.

Robot Factory approached to this project around two years ago with aim to reduce the plastic waste in 3D printing process and, at the same time, to reduce post processing time and costs.

Sliding 3D is equipped with an infinite printing platform, which simplifies the production of small series, as well as the 3D printing of extremely long objects. The distinguishing feature of »Sliding 3D« it is the build volume (410mm x 380mm x endless), because the printing platform is a moving belt, this means it can be engaged in an "uninterrupted" work cycle. This makes »Sliding 3D« particularly suitable both for serial production of small items as well as for 3D printing of large objects.
