Piocreat introduces industrial large-format 3D printer G12

The Chinese manufacturer Piocreat has introduced the G12, a large-format 3D printer for industrial use. The system uses the FGF process (Fused Granulate Fabrication), a variant of fused-layer 3D printing.

Instead of filament, the G12 uses granulated plastic, i.e. pellets with a diameter of 2-5 mm. A rotating screw melts the granulate and presses it through the nozzle, where it is fused into components. According to the manufacturer, this method significantly reduces material costs.

The most important data of the printer, which is over 2 meters high: installation space 1200 x 1000 x 1000 mm, installation space temperature 60 degrees, nozzle temperature max. 450 degrees. Printing can be carried out at speeds of up to 100 mm per second. As pellets are cheaper than filament, the G12 is also suitable for large quantities.

Common engineering plastics such as PLA, ABS, PC or PETG are supported, as are composites with carbon or glass fiber content, for example. A chamber heater ensures consistently good printing conditions.
