SIMO Enabled 3DP1000 Drew Huge Crowds at ATX West

Last week, 3D Platform partnered with PBC Linear to exhibit the large format 3D printer, the 3DP1000 at the ATX West show in Anaheim, California. During the three-day event, the aisle of the 3D Platform booth were packed with people who were excited to see the 3DP1000 in action, and eager to learn more about the technologies behind the industrial strength, large format 3D printer.

  Many visitors at the show were impressed by the large print area and the 70 micron print accuracy of 3DP1000. The industrial-class quality of the 3DP1000, is enabled by PBC Linear?s advanced mechatronics technology and linear motion solutions. For the past 30 years, PBC Linear has been a world-leading developer and manufacturer of advanced mechatronics and linear motion solutions for a broad range of applications. The 3DP1000 utilizes the SIMO? Series Linear Motion Actuators and Constant Force??lead screws with anti-backlash nuts from PBC Linear, both of which provide repeatable accuracy over the life of the large format 3D printer. In addition, the wiring on the 3DP1000 is simplified by employing integrated stepper motors and amplifiers from Applied Motion Products?to eliminate cable management failures. The Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation (SIMO) utilizes synchronized cutters to qualify the critical mounting and running surfaces of a range of linear motion rails. This precise machining method produces linear rails with 6 times better straightness, 2 times less twist, and 2 times better flatness than competitive linear motion systems based on extrusions.

A number of media members also dropped by the booth to check out the 3DP1000. In an interview with Enginnering TV, John Good, VP of Sales at 3D Platform says: ??When we first started building the 3DP1000, we knew we didn?t want to make another ?me too? product. We knew the demand for 3D printers that are high in quality, yet low in cost, would be enormous. That?s why we went to PBC Linear. We recognized their expertise in creating robust linear actuators, and saw how their technology could be perfectly applied to build a large 3D printer of the highest structural integrity.?
