3. Wide range of thermoplastic materials
CEAD’s robot extruders are designed to handle almost any thermoplastic material. From Polypropylene to high-end options like PEEK, the pellet extruder adapts to the specific needs of your industrial projects. This versatility ensures that CEAD can cater to diverse applications, offering flexibility and customization in material choices.
4. The reinforcement of fibers
An additional characteristic of pellet based 3D printing is the possibility to introduce fibers into the pellets. These fibers play a dual role. First, they minimize warping during the printing process, ensuring the structural integrity of the final product.
Additionally, and perhaps more significantly, they enhance the strength of the printed part. This capability opens doors to utilizing thermoplastic materials in high-end applications, such as autoclave tooling.
CEAD’s robot extruders are equipped with a nitrated barrel, which offers resistance against abrasive materials. This allows processing of virtually all short-fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites. Processing of commodity materials, biobased and high-end materials filles with wood-, glass and carbon fibers, make the extruders widely applicable to several industries.
Meet our family of robot extruders
The different models of our family of robot extruders can be mounted on robotic arms or gantry-systems. They were originally developed for our robot-based system called the Flexbot, which was officially launched in 2019. However, CEAD extruders can be easily integrated onto existing robot or gantry systems too.
On this page you can find more information on the different models from the robot extruder series. For more information download the robot extruder brochure, download a 3D file of the extruders or schedule a call with our specialists.
