Application Driven Large-scale 3D printing
Colossus is the first FGF printing system designed with a special accent on materials. The printers support impressive print speeds by working with direct pellet extrusion. This means that all printers work with granulate instead of filament, making the printing process more financially viable. This also enables us to work with a larger selection of (recycled) materials, process customer materials, and use various masterbatches directly in the print process. Our nozzles range from 1mm-10mm, with the possibility to produce custom sizes on request.
Every printer comes fully equipped with: a granulate fed extruder printhead, and a dehumidification unit for better print quality. All material profiles delivered with your printer contain the correct drying time and settings to ensure best quality. With the development of all Colossus Printers, special attention is places on being to work with a wide range of recycled materials, combining cutting-edge technology to give plastics a second life.
Innovative technology and possibilities
All of our machines remain fully customizable and can be provided as transportable or fixed units. It is also easy to add on and upgrade all systems allowing for flexibility. Our printers operate with a remote debugging software and connectivity system so that engineers can help fix problems remotely and in real-time. Training, service, maintenance contracts are also provided to ensure that the machines can be used to their full capacity.
Colossus Mark II is the second-generation printer in our series and it is a big upgrade from the Mark I. With a larger build volume of 2700 x 1250 x 1500, a lighter frame and higher temperature build plate.
With integrated cooling, improved dynamic movement and retraction it can handle a host of amazing materials. It remains easily transportable but has better remote-control features and control. Perfect for small to medium series manufacturing. This system, as well as all others, are fully customizable.
The Mark II Static is based on the same parameters as the containerized version. For clients that don’t need the transportability but prefer to have the printer installed in one location, this allows for a different setup if needed.
The Mark II Static series is does not have the size restrictions of the container so we can build much larger print volume. If we understand your application, we can advise you which system would be best suited for your production needs..
The Colossus XS Series is the newest addition; a unique printer when it comes to speed, quality and price. This is the first printer resulted from our newly introduced partnership with WEBER Additive; With a buildvolume of 1600 x 1200 x 1300, it reaches speeds of 200mm/sec due to the high-quality WEBER extrudsion technology.
The Colossus XS container version will be available for pre-order from Dec 2021, while the early bird static version, is available for order starting June 2021.
For specific applications Robotic systems can be better suited than gantry systems. We can help you determine if this is the case for you and if so, help guide you through the options. Robotic systems operate with the same extuder tech. as Colossus gantry printers, but have the benefit of angled printing, while our gantry systems have the benefit of full retractions.
We can project, based on the desired printed parts which system would be most financially viable for your products and provide you with a test print upon request.
