3D printer manufacturer Anisoprint and Industrial manufacturer of components, Bosch Rexroth have partnered to enhance the manufacturing process of continuous fiber AM.
Together, they develop PROM IS 500, a system that combines Bosch Rexroth’s MTX, a tried-and-proven CNC system for industrial 3D printing technologies and Anisoprint’s continuous fiber AM.
The hybrid machine, equips with Bosch’s automation technology, marks Anisoprint’s entry point into IoT. All data is collected and processed in real-time, allowing rapid reaction times. In this open architecture, the printer communicates seamlessly with higher-level systems like Aura and Aura.Connect. Standardised interfaces make it easy to adapt to new hardware and software environments, a press release states.
“BOSCH Rexroth CNC is certified for industrial applications and provides stable performance 24/7 with highest print speeds due to its beltless mechanics and better synchronisation,” explains Fedor Antonov, CEO of Anisoprint. “With a real-time synchronization, there is always a signal delay you cannot avoid. For 3D printing it is extremely important to minimize this delay — BOSCH provides a very good synchronization of accelerations and velocities between motion and extrusion, which significantly increases the tolerance and quality of prints.”
The Luxembourg-based company also notes that PROM IS 500 also provides a wide range of benefits that we do not find in its other systems. These benefits include for instance, a 3D scanner integration, polymer annealing control, interpolation numerous axes and more.
“We’ve chosen MTX because it’s considered the most powerful CNC system solution on the market, — says Evgeny Babarykin, PROM IS 500 Product owner at Anisoprint. — In combination with the high-quality automation and mechanical components, the open software systems allow no-limit possibilities for innovative technologies.”
