Press Release Summary:
The Vipro-Head 2-Component Print Head is available in 3/3 and 5/5 sizes. The product is designed for viscous fluids and pastes in additive manufacturing industries. The unit features parallel and independently running motors that receive signals from 3D printer. It comes with optional integrated pressure sensors for monitoring output pressure at the static mixer, which automatically stops the dosing process when pressure fluctuations occur.
Original Press Release:
New 2-Component Print Head for Viscous Fluids and Pastes - Vipro-HEAD 3/3 as Well as 5/5 Offers New Opportunities in Additive Manufacturing
With the introduction of the 1-component print head vipro-HEAD 3 as well as vipro-HEAD 5, ViscoTec has already responded to the requirements of its customers for the processing of viscous fluids and pastes in 3D printing. The rapid development of additive manufacturing processes is constantly placing new demands on companies involved in 3D printing. ViscoTec has again met the challenges of the industry and developed a new print head for the 3D printing of 2-component fluids and pastes.
The 2-component print head vipro-HEAD 3/3 as well as the 5/5, available in two sizes, will be presented for the first time at formnext, the international trade fair for additive manufacturing. The parallel and independently running motors receive signals directly from the 3D printer. Depending on customer requirements, bleeding screws can be adapted to the print head to facilitate venting during start-up. Optional integrated pressure sensors monitor the output pressure at the static mixer so that the dosing process is automatically stopped in the event of pressure fluctuations. This prevents damage to the rotor and stator as, like all ViscoTec products, the 2-component print head is based on the continuous piston principle. Thanks to this technology, in which rotor and stator play an important role, almost all viscous 2-component fluids and pastes can be dispensed gently and continuously. For optimum mixing of the 2-component material, a wide range of static mixers can also be attached to the print head.
At the formnext trade fair from 13th to 16th November in Frankfurt a. Main you can see the new product live and in colour - in Hall 3.0, Stand H54. Felix Gruber, Business Development Manager, will give a presentation on "Print heads for tomorrow´s fluids" at the TCT Introducing Stage on 14th November at 11:15 am.
