iFactory3D, the German Startup, has announced the launch of its innovative 3D belt printer technology, which will shape the future of manufacturing. Historically, the manufacturing process has been costly, time-consuming, and wasteful. While additive manufacturing addresses the majority of these issues, it has size and batch automation limitations, which is why it has yet to be implemented in larger-scale manufacturing. With their new product, the One Pro, the most advanced 3D belt printer in the world, iFactory3D is bridging these procedural gaps for business production teams in Europe and America.
Businesses can drastically reduce waste by producing only what is required with this technology. Furthermore, they can save up to 40% of their production budget because they no longer have to pay for injection moulding and the salaries of people who used to do the tedious task of manually loading the printer each time.
One Pro 3D Belt Printer
The One Pro is the result of a decade of 3D printing experience and four years of tweaking its initial 3D belt printer prototype. They designed it with great care, with input from clients, the community, and industry experts, and with the finest industry standard components primarily from European manufacturers. As a result, it is a world-class 3D printer made in Germany.
To address existing printing issues, this novel 3d belt printer technology was developed using the conveyor belt as the build plate. With its infinite length threshold, it can print long objects. It allows for simultaneous mass production with minimal human-machine interaction and automated levelling. With its 45-degree angle, it can also print various geometries, including hollow shapes.
“We have a client who placed a large spool of filament material into the printer and went on a one-week holiday. When he came back, the basket was full of the items he had printed. We also have clients who want to print their entire product line or mass produce for months. This can be achieved with our proprietary belt printer.”– Artur Steffen co-founder and CEO of iFactory3D
Besides its mechanical capacity, it helps curb the manufacturing industry’s environmental impact, which has been a widespread concern.
“I remembered in 2018, I needed a larger quantity of long components for a specific project, but I was unable to do so with the limited space provided in regular 3D printers, and it wasn’t cost-effective to place an injection molding order for just a couple of hundred parts for development. I had to create an enhanced printer to perform the task. We made the 3D belt printer available to the public because we wanted to provide countless businesses worldwide the opportunity to manufacture their products affordably.”– Martin Huber, co-founder and CTO of iFactory3D
They are currently the only B2B company in the world developing 3D belt printers. With future iteration plans, they hope to expand their international market reach and reach greater heights by allowing customers to manage the printing process remotely via remote control.
About iFactory3D: iFactory3D uses proprietary 3D belt printing technology to automate additive manufacturing. Artur Steffen and Martin Huber launched an industrial revolution in 2020 to bring additive manufacturing to mass produce items in a profitable, sustainable way, creating less waste, eliminating unnecessary transportation, and bringing production back from Asia to countries such as the United States, Germany, and other developed countries.
