KraussMaffei, a leading manufacturer of injection molds, is releasing a polymer 3D printer with a build volume of 2 by 2.5 by 2 meters. The powerPrint printer, which uses granulate, reduces expenses for both customers and the business. KraussMaffei has improved the quality of printed items by optimizing nozzle performance using their considerable expertise of extrusion.

The powerPrint displays high-speed printing capabilities with a rate of 30 kilograms per hour. Concurrently, the build chamber may be heated to a comfortable 350 degrees Celsius for superior printing results. The printer makes use of a crane and vacuum build plates to effectively remove produced components. The turnaround time was greatly improved by using this smart and very productive method.

Users can also order replacement components directly from KraussMaffei, saving them the cost of purchasing a printer. When you go with printing as a service, the provider will help you with everything from conceptualization to final assembly. A vacuum infusion mold, a sand casting mold, and a charging column are just a few of the specialized instruments that the firm has developed.When put together, these capabilities make the powerPrint an attractive option for industrial-scale 3D printing jobs.

According to Rolf Mack, Vice President of Additive Manufacturing at KraussMaffei, “the powerPrint is ready to produce custom parts for the customer at the customer’s facility with the highest industry and quality standards.”

About KraussMaffei

KraussMaffei, a ChemChina subsidiary with a long history in extruders, has just entered the 3D printing business, which is notable given the company’s parent company’s dominance in the chemical industry. The firm sells compounding plants for making mass production granulate and foam product filling lines. KraussMaffei is well-known for producing highly resilient products suitable for industrial production, with annual outputs in the millions of components. They have mastered the art of making filaments for 3D printers and even pipes for the plumbing industry, expanding the scope of their equipment’s usefulness.

KraussMaffei’s machine tool for polymers division is drawing on decades of knowledge to create a massively prolific 3D printer. Achieving a consistent printing pace of 30 kilograms per hour would be a significant accomplishment, setting a new bar for output. Components printed on systems larger than the KraussMaffei printer can be functional, although this frequently requires substantial post-printing machining. But the KraussMaffei printer’s potential productivity is impressive, and it shows enormous promise for the future of 3D printing.

In a similar vein to the powerPrint are printers like the CMS Kreator, which uses a screw, and the smaller device from Juggerbot, which also uses pellets. Another pellet-using system that offers a contained solution and excels at making jigs and fixtures is 3D Systems‘ Titan. Other novel techniques are available, such as the Queen 3D printer, which, unlike the most recent KraussMaffei system, operates at a far lower chamber temperature. Each of these numerous approaches to mass-production 3D printing has its own set of advantages in specific contexts.

There has been an influx of new players into the large and medium scale 3D printing market in recent years. There is a major divide between large-format systems (those larger than 2 meters in any direction) that primarily aim at big tools and medium-format systems (those less than 2 meters in any direction) that primarily aim at jigs and fixtures. The powerPrint is an intriguing alternative because it seems to span both categories in size and functionality.

The powerPrint strikes an excellent middle ground between slow production and excessive milling, making it appealing to various users. This strategy may be pivotal in a crowded market where differentiation is increasingly important. Introducing the printer as a service is a clever strategy that helps consumers to get started quickly, and providing design help speeds up the onboarding process even further. Overall, this is an exciting and dynamic time to be involved in the big size 3D printing sector.
