Development of a precision FFF additive manufacturing equipment that meets the industry 4.0 concept.
FFF additive manufacturing appears as a very promising technology for the Professional and Semi-Industrial segment. It can effectively represent a new industrial revolution. The main advantages for this tecnology are low producing time, greater complexity of shapes and environmental benefits, as well as high efficiency of raw material use, when compared to conventional processes.
This additive manufacturing equipment will be regarded as a significant evolution of FFF printing technology, by developing two electromechanical subsystems and an integrated production management system. This will bring major advantages when it comes to the total time spent on producing objects, reducing the printing process complexity and in the quality feature that is similar to industrial-sized printing machines.
