One unique feature of this robot 3D printer can be found in the Siemens Sinumerik software which is used to directly control the robot arm. This ensures that the robot and the extruder – and even more axes are possible – are realtime controlled through the same controller. Additionally, no external robotic language is necessary for the operation, standard G-codes are used. Making it easy in use and more accurate along the toolpath.
In addition to the use of pellet extrusion, the AM Flexbot is able to combine 3D printing and milling into one automated process. This, combined with the characteristics of the AM Flexbot make this solution highly suitable for those that require an assembled and complete 3D printer pellet extruder with high flexibility.
The AM Flexbot systems are available in different setups, for example a track can drastically enlarge the build volume. However there are limitations, the building dimensions for the AM FLexbot start at roughly 2m x 1m and can go up to 8m x 2m. Looking for a larger print area? Then the gantry based system is the solution you are looking for.
