Raise3D announces the launch of Raise3D RMF500, a 3D printer aimed at small-batch production in the industrial sector. The RMF500 allows Raise3D’s industrial customers to expand their business to precisely and repeatedly fabricate end-use parts made of carbon fiber reinforced material at high speed.
The RMF500 has been designed to offer three main features:
• Highly accurate production repeatability
• High speed and large build volume
• The ability to use high-performance material
With its linear motors, the RMF500 can execute models with an accuracy of 0.001 mm along the X and Y axes. Precision can be 0.0009765 mm along the Z axis. Its 1 μm closed-loop synchronous control reduces speed variations with load changes of the motor, enhancing precision even further.
The RMF500 has a large 500 x 500 x 500 mm build area and can reach print speeds of up
300 mm/s along with an acceleration of up to 2G and movement of up to 1000 mm/s. Furthermore, with its Independent Dual Extruder system (IDEX), it is possible to execute 2 print jobs simultaneously, making the RMF500 even quicker and more productive.
Raise3D’s material scientists determined the best materials for reliable, uninterrupted printing of strong end-use parts. The result is a carbon fiber reinforced filament with higher rigidity and lower shrinkage ratio. It does not need a heated chamber to avoid warping, as is so customary in 3D printing. This leads to a far more efficient printer, that does not need to draw so much power, using 120W to power a single hot end. The resulting parts made from the carbon fiber reinforced filament are lightweight yet extremely strong, making them an alternative to metal parts.
To ensure customers experience trouble-free, uninterrupted printing, the RMF500 is equipped with four 2.5 kg super large cartridge (main and auxiliary, with sets each), where the 3D printer can switch automatically between main/auxiliary cartridges and reduce the need for constant intervention. Positive pressure humidity control keeps chamber humidity under 5% relative humidity.
Apart from all the other advantages, the RMF500 offers more benefits. All load-bearing structural parts of the RMF500 are made of high-grade hardened steel, with the maximum load the Z-axis can withstand being around 100 kg. The linear motor-driven system has low clearance and low maintenance requirements. The deflection error of of Z axis with a high load in the entire moving range is estimated to be 50% lower than that of competitive products.
