Pushing back the boundaries of industrial 3D printing
Printing complex geometric shapes and meter-high components – that was something that was hardly possible until now. The robot-based additive manufacturing technology from Caracol is now pushing back the existing boundaries of industrial 3D printing. And so it was that the sailboat “Beluga” was brought to life.
Caracol works with a total of four KUKA robots. The KR QUANTEC robots, equipped with a patented extruder head for 3D printing, stand out particularly for their flexibility. The system allows greater geometrical freedom in order to be able to process even more complex components from a wide range of materials. At the same time, the system offers advantages in terms of costs, sustainability, production lead time and performance compared to traditional solutions.
