Industrial 3D printer SkyOne is meant for printing by up-to-date plastics with melting temperature up to 260 °С. Fused deposition modeling technology (layer-by-layer formation of an object from as fused plastic) is behind a concept of its operation. The printer is realized according a coupled design SCARA (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm), two motors control levers, which move an extruder in XY plane. Feeding along the Z axis is realized by a ballscrew transmission. Scheme SCARA provides an advantage in printing speed over printers, which use Cartesian ordinates. But at the same time the software for 3D printer SkyOne is much more complicated than for printers constructed according a standard design.
Video of a SCARA mechanism operation
Levers of a SCARA mechanism are made from an aluminium alloy, with a usage of combined journal and thrust bearings, the mechanism is equipped by a unit of automatic backlash eliminating. Rigidity of a coupled SCARA mechanism in vertical direction allows using both 3D printing extruder and engraving-milling head, providing engraving of soft metals or milling plastics.
Plastic case milling
Coupled mechanism SCARA performs high-reliability, avoids the necessity for drawing of drivebelts and adjusting the bearing clearance.
The extruder of 3D printer SkyOne is quick-detachable. That allows quick installation of spindle for milling and engraving operations, or small-size lazer for cutting out sheet material. When using the printer as a milling-engraving machine, the heated platform for 3D printing is replaced by aluminium table with T-shaped gaps, which matches in the best way for securing a processed part.
We offer few types of printing heads with different nozzle size. For models with a large quantity of fine elements and high detalization it is used a nozzle diameter 0.3 mm. For simple functional parts it is better to use a nozzle diameter 1 mm, which greately reduces printing time.
Thereby we can say, that 3D printer SkyOne is a quality technologically strong solution for engineers and developers of electronic equipment, instrumets, professional equipment and for other scientific and technological fields. Preset adjustment for different plastics and intelligent algorithms will help to create the most suitable option set and successfully meet technical challenge of the customer.
Advantages of 3D printer SkyOne are:
- high printing rate
- small size and ergonomics
- conceptually new added functionality by virtue of milling and engraving heads
- 3D printer SkyOne, designed according SCARA construction, can be easily placed on a work table
- heated table improves adhesion of the first layer of plastic and the printing surface
- new extruder with two fans provides an opportunity toprint with virtually any plastics
- fine precision and repeatability of printing result
We would like to make specific mention of a protective screen, which achieves temperature stabilization of the printing area. So it becomes possible to print with plastics with large coefficient of temperature expansion. The printer construction has a heating controller, which adjust the table temperature automatically. Low noise level make it possible to realize continuous working without disturbing people around.
3D printer SkyOne is a universal, powerfull and handy device for a modern developer. And this tool is available and affordable now. Buy 3D printer SkyOne - means save time and money.
