Czech 3D printer manufacturer TRILAB has launched its new AzteQ Industrial system, the first in a new line of Delta FDM 3D printers.

Available in two models – the AzteQ and the larger AzteQ Plus – the desktop device is designed for performance, with an actively heated build chamber, magnetic and interchangeable printheads and a novel tensiometric calibration sequence. TRILAB has placed great emphasis on filament compatibility with AzteQ and claims that its newest system can 3D print fiber-filled composites, ASA, PA, PC and PP parts for industrial end-use applications.

Michal Boháč, CEO of TRILAB, explains: “We have always done things differently from our competitors. All of our 3D printers are based on modern, fast and precise delta kinematics, and with the AzteQ we are now pushing for advanced materials. With a closed and actively heated pressure chamber, our customers are not restricted in terms of size or material. “

Delta 3D printing with TRILAB

TRILAB was founded in 2016 with the mission to develop Delta FDM 3D printers for the Czech B2B market. Compared to Cartesian setups, the delta kinematics can enable higher printing speeds as well as higher part accuracy and surface quality.

TRILAB made its commercial debut in 2017 when the company launched its first 3D printer, the DeltiX. Shortly afterwards, in 2018 and 2019, the more advanced 3D printers DeltiQ and DeltiQ 2 were launched.

The DeltiQ 2, which can still be purchased, has a construction volume of Ø 250 x 300 mm and is primarily designed for professional use in offices and research laboratories. With a 5 mm thick aluminum construction plate, the magnetic print bed of the system can be exchanged for a PEI surface or other alternatives. Based on the success of the DeltiQ 2, the new AzteQ line aims to raise the bar and shift the company’s focus to more powerful 3D printing.

The industrial 3D printer from AzteQ

The new AzteQ Industrial 3D printer is equipped with a portrait-format construction chamber with the dimensions Ø 300 x 400 mm (Ø 400 x 600 mm for the AzteQ Plus), which offers the user up to 30 liters of volume to play with.

Designed for both large part prototyping and end-user production, the system is suitable for everything from automotive fixtures and fixtures to chemical contacting pharmaceutical components. One of the biggest upgrades of the older DeltiQ line is the new closed and actively heated build chamber, which can reach up to 80⁰C.

The latest 3D printer from TRILAB also offers a high level of modularity and features magnetic, interchangeable print heads with extruders and hotends developed by E3D. This allows the AzteQ to 3D print harder materials with hardened nozzles or to increase throughput with a larger hotend diameter without the need to manually change the nozzle. Each of the company’s printheads also contains tensiometric auto-calibration sensors, which means the AzteQ can perform a full printer calibration before each print.

In addition, users can also exchange the print bed for one of the special magnetic PrintPad surfaces from TRILAB. Similar to the print heads of the system, these PrintPads are application-specific, which makes 3D printing with certain materials easier. Additional features include integrated lighting, an integrated pressure monitoring camera and remote WiFi connectivity.

Boháč adds: “Thanks to the easy replacement of the magnetically attached, quickly replaceable print heads and the ability to select the most suitable PrintPad printing surface, every material change is a matter of minutes.”
