3D Printing machine

Precise Printing

This printer makes three-dimensional plastic models. The plastic is heated to 491°F in the print head and is built up along three axes, one layer at a time. This requires high-speed for the individual print heads and absolute precision, which is achieved by the use of drylin® linear guides and iglide® plain bearings. Conventional ball bearings could not achieve the high speeds required.
