3D printer maker VERASHAPE has declared that it will be unveiling the latest 3d printer through its subsidiary, VSHAPER. The printer competently called the VSHAPER 5AX, the 3D printer is a 5-axis mechanism. It has extra machining abilities.
The VSHAPER is equipped with FDM technology and is focusing on clients searching for engineering apps for additive manufacturing with thermoplastic elements. The firm created the 5AX to additive manufacture in 5-axis. This is so that to help defeat the restrictions of the old level by a level printing technique. The 3D printer, 5AX is expected to be launched in May 2020.
VERASHAPE is situated Rzeszów. This is a town in Poland’s southeastern area. The firm is the supplier CAD/CAM software solutions and 3D printer. The 3D printers of this firm are fully marketed via its VSHAPER line. This helps develop mechanisms that focus on the foundry, automotive, medical, and aerospace sectors.
Together with VSHAPER 3D printing machines, VERASHAPE also offers distinct CAD/CAM software solutions. This is for 3D milling, sheet metal machining, and injection molding. The news concerning the growth of VSHAPER 5-axis 3D printing machine was initially revealed about more than two years ago.
In was in 2017 when VERASHAPE disclosed the original information regarding the system. The system is described as a 5-axis FDM mechanism. The 3D printer was said to use a rotary functioning platform. It is also said to have been developed with the help of Polish National Research and Development Center.
VERASHAPE unveiled an open innovation platform in 2018. The aim was to support the growth of the 5AX.
“The conceptual work on the 5-Axis Machine continues, but we have decided to present its effects so that potential customers are included in the technology development process. We strive for the machine, that will become available to purchase in 2019, to meet the expectations of demanding production companies,” said the founder and CEO of VERASHAPE and VSHAPER, Tomasz Szymański, when clarifying what inspired the program.
According to VSHAPER, the main issue of AM in industrial applications is the anisotropic nature of printouts. This is triggered by the conventional level by level FDM AM procedure. This composition can trigger 3D printed pieces to keep unstable strength, based on the chosen axis. Also, it needs support structures to keep print geometry. This is possibly wasting high-temperature thermoplastic elements in the procedure.
