Roboze, a 3D printer manufacturer based in Bari, Italy, today announced the launch of its New Roboze One 3D printer, an updated version of its well-established Roboze One. The new fused filament fabrication (FFF/FDM) 3D printer offers a range of new features and improvements while maintaining the company’s tried and true Beltless system.
According to the Italian 3D printer manufacturer, its New Roboze One boasts a “real” 25 micron resolution (the highest of any FFF 3D printer on the market, the company says), empowered motors, and an improved stainless steel extruder. The new extruder can reach temperatures of up to 300°C, making it better suited for use with a wide range of materials, including techno-polymers.

In terms of materials, users will be able to choose from a wider selection than with the original Roboze One, with such notable additions as:
- CARBON PA, a polyamide-based carbon-fiber reinforced polymer
- Nylon 6, a polyamide with high mechanical resistance
- ASA, a techno-polymer with good resistance to weather, UV rays, discoloration, and aging (suited for outdoor and automotive components)
- PC-ABS, which combines PC’s mechanical properties with ABS’ high usability
- ABS-HD, which offers a “strong level of superficiality” and is ideal for post-production operations
- ABS-ESD, an ABS-based advanced polymer with carbon nanotubes and process/loss modifiers, which is suited for making HDD components, connectors, and for various measurement applications
Previously compatible materials include ULTRA, STRONG, FLEX, and FUNCTIONAL. All together, the New Roboze One can be used with ten functional advanced thermoplastics.

Other updates include a more user-friendly placement of the 3.5” color touch-screen display, new emergency sensors and buttons, an upgraded ventilation system, and external SD card and USB inputs. According to Roboze, these features, in combination with new 24V stepper motors with corner division up to 128 steps, result in a more accurate and less noisy FFF 3D printing system.
With a build volume of 280 x 220 x 200 mm, the New Roboze One also integrates the company’s innovative patented Beltless System, only with upgraded electronics. It is this system that enables the 3D printing of parts with tolerances of 25 microns and enables repeatability. Finally, the 3D printer was fully designed and manufactured in Italy, and has undergone rigorous testing.
While Roboze launched its newest 3D printer earlier today, the public can expect to get their first look at the New Roboze One at the Rapid +TCT show, which is taking place from May 8 to 11 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

Their machine IS NOT the first with rack and pinion. Acadian Robotics has been in production of the Copperhead 3D printer since February 2014. Their "revolutionary" idea is invalid.
