CEL’s Robox line of 3D printers is adding a prestigious new item to its portfolio in the form of the RoboxPro. Aside from the improved print quality and layer resolution, the RoboxPro features some state of the art innovations including 3 interchangeable printheads, an adaptive bed leveling system and a wide variety of materials. As the name suggest, this edition to the Robox line aims to please the needs of professional users.
The RoboxPro offers a 210 x 300 x 400 mm print size with an enclosure print chamber and a heated, magnetic, removable print surface. It has a layer height range of 50 to 500 Microns (0.05mm to 0.5mm) and it can process 1.75 diameter filaments (open material system) such as ABS, PETG, PC, Nylon and PVOH. In addition it can further enhance its material capabilities with the use of the SingleX printhead.
Aside from the standard specs the RoboxPro has more some unique features worth noting. Its unique needle valves prevent viscous materials from leaking or oozing out, improving print quality. There’s less time wasted on purges, wipe towers or heating/cooling operations. The print surface can also auto-level while heating up to an impressive 140 °C.
CEL RoboxPro’s Features
According to CEL: “Robox is the future of micro-manufacturing; with its HeadLock™ system, Robox will operate with different heads and users will have the opportunity to upgrade their Robox to become a dual material printer, stylus cutter, milling head or 3D scanner.”
This same ethos carried over to the RoboxPro, offering easily swappable printheads with better speed, quality or more materials. The Quickfill 0.3 and 0.8mm valved nozzles have a single material feed but provide high speed and detail. Similarly, the SingleX 0.6mm head is also has a single material feed but offers better processing for abrasive materials. Users can even switch to the DualMaterial two 0.4mm valved nozzles for two material feeds.
The RoboxPro is best suited for large structural parts. The larger size and multimaterial capabilities make it ideal for these sorts of professional, large-scale tasks. The RoboxPro provides easy printing and process monitoring through multiple connected devices as well as providing a ton of safety features such as door locks during cooling, allowing for a secure and efficient workflow.
