Italian 3D printing company Roboze has unveiled the newest iteration of the Roboze One. Now capable of 3D printing in an even larger array of materials, the updated model also features a new extruder that can withstand higher temperatures.

What’s new

The refreshed Roboze One FFF printer features new material capabilities and promises higher accuracy with feature sizes of 25 microns. These new features are enabled by a new stainless steel extruder which can reach high temperatures of up to 300°C and the new patented beltless system.

New materials 

Thanks to the new extruder, the Roboze One can now print in: CARBON PA, a carbon fibre reinforced polymer, Nylon 6, ASA, PC-ABS, ABS-HD, and ABS-ESD. These materials are all in addition to the existing options of Ultra, Strong, Flex and Functional. The Italian company can now boast functionality with ten different advanced materials.

Roboze has just entered a partnership with Israeli company Polymertal as they look to further increase the strength of 3D printed structures by plating them in metal.

Other features

Roboze has also added to the user experience by improving the touch screen display. The company states the controls are now 8 times more accurate and the machine also creates less noise due to vibration reductions. The company has also included 24V stepper motors to improve printing quality. The Roboze One has a build volume of 280 x 220 x 200 mm.

At 3D Printing Industry, we’re keen to see the new 3D printer in action and put some of these claims to the test.

If you’d like to see the printer first-hand, the updated Roboze One will be showcased for the first time at the RAPID + TCT show next month. 3D Printing Industry spoke to the organizers recently to learn more about what to expect from the show.
