Liftcell Production Lines for Additive Manufacturing

Breaking out of the Niche

The Liftcell production lines industrialize additive manufacturing, which does not stop at 3D printing (© Coobx)

Additive manufacturing is leaving the confines of prototyping behind it and breaking out into mass production. Coobx AG, Balzers, Liechtenstein, offers three different production lines with different degrees of automation to specifically target different customer requirements.

Fully automated workflow is achieved with the Liftcell 8 and Liftcell 12 models. These are designed for round-the-clock operation. The integrated post-processing unit works on the rotary-transfer principle. Up to five different post-processing operations, such as cleaning, drying, tempering and UV curing, can be defined individually. These process steps yield a cycle time of 150 s. For maximum flexibility, the system can handle up to six different materials.

The Liftcell 2 is designed as an entry-level solution into the world of automated additive manufacturing. The fully automated pick & place system makes it possible to organize up to 60 build platforms. To ensure operation is as autonomous as possible, the print material is automatically adjusted and homogenized via two CIP hose pumps. The system is designed for two Exigo printers (models: 1-110 and 1-350), also from Coobx; these can be operated with the patent-pending Lift technology (Light Initiated Fabrication Technology) and can be supplied simultaneously with different materials. The integrated print server organizes the print jobs and controls automation. Post-processing is done by the Exigo Clean&Cure unit.

A maximum of twelve machines can be implemented in a Liftcell unit. The resin is stored centrally in the post-processing unit and can be handled easily, without any mess. TX2 machines from Stäubli provide the automation for the production cell. This is intended to guarantee true industrial workflow and maximum reliability.
