Alessio Lorusso, CEO and Founder of Roboze, is in Dubai with a full line-up of meetings aimed at introducing the UAE to Roboze 3D printing solutions.
The 3D printing market is expected to reach $300 billion by 2025. As such, 3D printing technology continues to evolve, adding new solutions for the most extreme manufacturing needs.
This forecast continues to gain consensus globally, inviting the most visionary states to expediently invest their resources to gain market share and competitive advantage in terms of design, manpower and technological environmental sustainability, facilitating production processes in various sectors and redefining productivity in the industrial world.
As in the case of The Dubai 3D Printing Strategy, Dubai’s unique global initiative that aims to exploit technology for the service of humanity while establishing the United Arab Emirates and Dubai as the leading hub of 3D printing technology worldwide by the year 2030.
In 2025, based on Dubai municipality’s regulations, every new building in Dubai will be 25% 3D printed; this project is set to begin in 2019, starting at 2% with a gradual increase toward its strategic goal.
In an effort to align Dubai’s health sector with the Dubai 3D printing strategy, the Dubai Health Authority has committed to regulating and setting the standards to the use of 3D printing technology in the health sector, and will explore the use of 3D printed prosthetic limbs, 3D printed teeth, and 3D printed hearing aids in public clinics and hospitals.
Focus will also be ushered in on consumer products, with the goal of reaching €6 billion market for the production of household items, optics, fashion jewellery, children’s games and fast food products by 2025.
Roboze, Italian leader in additive technology solutions for high performance industries, could not help but respond to the call of the UAE market. Its 3D printers, for the aerospace, defense, space and manufacturing sectors, offer time and cost-effective solutions with its wide range of high-tech materials and high precision of its FFF machines.
More specifically, Roboze’s patented Beltless System, does away with the traditional rubber straps, which are subject to distortion, wear and repeatability and maintenance problems, by inserting a new unique movement of the X and Y axes with directly connected helical rack and pinion.
This innovation positions Roboze FFF 3D printers as the most accurate in the world, able to reach unprecedented mechanical tolerances of 25 microns, to put it in the right perspective, a human hair is 70 microns, and guaranteed high repeatability and accuracy which allows for the realization of serial part production while ensuring smooth and silent movement.
In-house manufacturing has always been a competitive advantage for Roboze, which, in a few years has managed to create mechatronic solutions associated with materials engineering. And it is precisely in the versatility of its materials, developed to enhance its end users with metal replacement properties, that Roboze has been able to gain market confidence.
Roboze has concentrated its efforts on developing and printing thermoplastics at high temperatures, giving its customers the opportunity to obtain prototypes and finished products ready to be used in many sectors for metal replacement.
Metal Replacement is one of Roboze’s strengths, especially in the Automotive and Aerospace sectors, providing huge advantages in terms of reduced fuel costs and above all environmental pollution, thanks to the strong metal replacement properties of its techno-polymers able to hold up to extreme mechanical, chemical and / or thermal conditions.
An example is PEEK, able to withstand continuous temperatures of 250°C without undergoing any mechanical or dimensional deformation. Moreover, this material, already used in the medical field with traditional methods, is interesting in the production of permanent prostheses inside the human body.
Roboze’s expertise in PEEK 3D printing allows the company to pave the way in the creation of new divisions aimed at leading the medical technology sector.
Exporting Roboze 3D FFF printing to Dubai, a country in continuous rapid development and closely linked to 3D printing technology in the medical, construction and consumer goods sectors, represents an unmissable opportunity for Roboze: the rising market in the UAE can become a launching pad for a better future, not just for technology and states interested in progress, but also for Roboze, a pioneer in FFF 3D printing in Italy and worldwide.
