With years of experience in the field of industrial 3D printing applications, our mission is to bring a fresh wind into this 3D Printing landscape.
“3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything.” That has been said already 4 years ago by president Obama. We are trying to bring his vision to life.
Our vision is, that not everybody will own a 3D printer, but chances are high, that in short time, most people will have a 3D printed part in their home, eventually without knowing it.
We have developed a machine that is truly outstanding due to its completely new 3D printing technology. This patent pending machine is capable of series production, extremely long products and un-supported horizontal overhangs.
If you are thinking to use this technology in your production plant, get in contact with us, so we can check, if your application is suitable to be used and produced on this production platform.
BLACKBELT 3D is proud to announce a new type of industrial production machine, that is designed to realize your ideas within a short time and at low cost.
WHY BLACKBELT 3D Printer?
Changing paradigms in FFF 3D printing:
The BLACKBELT 3D printer brings new standards to the 3D printing industry:
- Interchangeable print heads
- Industrial linear guides
- Building volume: 340 x 340 x ∞ mm (13” x 13”x ∞”)
- Print angle adjustable: 15°/ 25°/ 34°/ 45°
- Filament diameter: 1.75mm
- Tested materials: ABS/PLA/Co-Polyester (colorFabb XT / nGEN / HT), PETG
- Print heads: nozzle sizes 0.4/ 0.6/ 0.8 mm come with the printer.
What is so special about the BLACKBELT 3D Printer?
Over the past years, FFF 3D printers have developed to reliable working production units, essential for many companies. Many components of the BLACKBELT 3D Printer have been selected from standard industrial 3D architecture, using the most established and reliable parts, which have been arranged in a new way, allowing new possibilities.
A high-precision conveyor belt defines the new Z-Axis and print substrate, moving horizontally with every new layer.
The conveyor belt is made from carefully selected and well tested carbon fiber composite, allowing the print to adhere on and to position it precisely.
Customizable, modular design
The BLACKBELT 3D Printer is supplied with 3 print heads, having different nozzle diameters, that are user friendly and fail safe to exchange. No unscrewing of hot nozzles anymore!
The machine is available as a desktop version and a stand-alone version. Last one can be used with an optional downstream roller table to support extremely long products when printing.
Depending on print material, environment or printing geometry, the BLACKBELT 3D printer can be modified individually to adapt to the customer’s needs.
Using industrial BOSCH Aluminium profiles for the frame construction allows easy adaptation of the 3D printer to any industrial or desktop environment. Stainless steel sheet-metal parts provide precision and rigidity to the frame construction.
What we CAN DO:
Large format printing
The open build volume allows to produce prints of theoretically endless length. The gantry allows building products of 340 x 340mm in x and y direction. For prints of 1300mm or longer, we recommend using the roller table to provide additional support during the printing process.
After finishing a print, the machine is instantly ready for the next part, which makes it suitable for series production of same or individual parts. Is not necessary to remove the prints manually, simply put a container in front of the printer and it will collect the finished prints.
By printing under a specific angle, it is possible to produce support-free overhangs on slanted geometry. To prevent the machine from printing in the air, some parts or designs require a starting geometry, as explained on the next page.
What we CANNOT DO:
Printing in the air – The BLACKBELT 3D Printer must start every new geometry on the conveyor belt, or onto a previous layer. Otherwise, it will extrude build material into the air, producing so called “Spaghetti”. Specific design guidelines are applicable to guarantee a succesfull print.
