Following their HT500 3D printer, Germany-based open source hardware development and manufacturing company Kühling&Kühling is about to launch the VP75 Additive Manufacturing System at formnext in Frankfurt next week.
The large Delta 3D printer with FFF-Technology has a build volume of 75 litres, with a diameter of 400 and hight of 600 mm. According to the developers the machine can reach a material output of 100g per hour in its fully enclosed, heated and precisely controlled build environment. The print head is optimised for engineering grade materials and provides a live performance analysis through its ClogSense system.
Additionally, the ActuProbe system ensures 100% self-calibration of the print bed. The build surface can easily be exchanged thanks to its fixation technology. While a PEI sheet is included, a wide variety of substituting build surface materials up to 3 mm thickness can be used as well.
The 10″ touchscreen display user interface allows the user to control and monitor the printing process, with the help of an on-board diagnostics and process monitoring system.
