Bosch developed 3D printer MVP, primarily based on pellet BIAM extrusion


Keep updated with all the pieces that’s taking place within the great world of AM through our LinkedIn neighborhood.

The Bosch Group has proven a rising curiosity for additive manufacturing over the previous few years. The corporate owns Dremel (a pioneer in academic desktop 3D printers), it has made strategic investments in/fashioned strategic partnerships with corporations similar to Arris, Anisoprint and BigRep, it acquired 3D printers (from primary Ultimakers to industrial SLM Options techniques) and its ceramic division, Bosch Superior Ceramics has made progress in providing technical ceramic 3D printing capabilities. Now Bosch Industrial Additive Manufacturing, aka BIAM, unveiled a product identified (for now) as 3D Printer MVP – (Minimal Viable Product), a 3D printer primarily based on a pellet extrusion course of that makes use of extensively obtainable granulate supplies.

The strangest a part of all that is that, whereas the system was apparently launched in June 2022, only a few folks appear to learn about it and no media has reported the story but. The explanation for that is that the 3D Printer MVP goes to launch at the least viable product (MVP), for a specific group of shoppers, at first of 2023, as Bosch Industrial Additive Manufacturing Industrial Design Engineer, Alex Voigt, revealed on his LinkedIn web page.

Bosch developed 3D printer MVP, based on pellet BIAM extrusion launching as a minimum viable product (MVP), for a selected group of customers Voigt added that the system will be capable to print with “practically each injection molding materials (plastic pellets) on the market [and be used to] produce prototypes […] utilizing the identical materials as in manufacturing later and even saving prices on the similar time? Or produce a small sequence in a selected, closely used materials within the trade like PA66 or PA66 GF35.”

So what can probably events count on from this new 3D Printer MVP? Bosch Industrial Additive Manufacturing describes its 3D printer “as the subsequent step in industrial manufacturing and in a position to make use of industrial granulate immediately as printing materials.” The corporate developed its personal granulate extrusion course of mixed with a client-oriented enterprise mannequin with the objective of enabling shoppers to dive proper into 3D printing utilizing widespread industrial however sustainable supplies. In the direction of this effort, the 3D Printer MVP will present options to be usable by early shoppers who can present suggestions in response to their wants.

Some highlights of the 3D Printer MVP are the options and companies the 3D printer already comes with. Initially, it can begin with three totally different industrial supplies (PA66 GF30, PA12, PLA) for the primary model. The printer has two extruders, and it may print one materials at a time. Within the subsequent step, will probably be in a position to deal with two totally different supplies concurrently and add the chance to make use of help materials as nicely. The system’s construct quantity stands at a hefty 420 x 420 x 420 mm with the flexibility to extrude as much as 350°C and warmth the construct plate as much as 120°C. The construct fee begins at 8 cm³/h and Bosch mentioned will probably be growing with the subsequent replace.
