The Polish company Bibus Menos has unveiled its first industrial 3D printer, the PROLAY 7Q model. According to the press release, the printer uses a modified FDM technology called PLTM for faster, high-quality printing.
The PROLAY 7Q is said to print 1.5 to 5 times faster than conventional printers. This is made possible by an innovative adjustment of the layer thickness during printing. According to Bibus Menos, this allows a high surface quality to be combined with a fast overall printing time.
With a print area of 725 x 450 x 500 mm, the PROLAY 7Q is also suitable for large components. A maximum of four print heads with nozzles from 0.2 to 0.8 mm can be used. Compatible materials include various plastics such as ABS, PC and PC-ABS.
According to Bibus Menos, up to three materials can be mixed to print composite materials. The development of the PROLAY 7Q is the result of years of experience with 3D printing and targeted R&D. Bibus Menos is now presenting the printer to the public for the first time at the Formnext trade fair in Frankfurt.
With the PROLAY 7Q and its own PLTM process, the company is underlining its claim to further develop industrial 3D printing technology. The focus is on high quality and productivity for professional use.
