We’ve developed an innovative tool-changing system for delta 3D printers, and we very much enjoyed presenting it at VERRF 2020. We call this project the DeltaMaker Halo, and it just might be the coolest toolchanger announcement this year. The DeltaMaker Halo is built on our DeltaMaker 3D Printer, which we think has one of the best and most robust delta motion systems ever used on a desktop 3D printer.
As we complete the DeltaMaker Halo project’s R&D phase and begin transitioning into the manufacturing phase, we want to get your comments and figure-out which configurations you guys would like to get your hands on. Sign up on our information list, share your insights, and be one of the first to hear about the DeltaMaker Halo System pre-order special.
There are two distinct parts to the DeltaMaker Halo System: the Halo toolchanger and the DeltaMaker motion system. The two go hand in hand; the precision DeltaMaker motion system is a fundamental part of what makes the Halo toolchanger work, and the Halo toolchanger opens up immense possibilities for the DeltaMaker motion system.
Why a Delta?
The DeltaMaker Halo project was designed with several goals in mind: High speed motion, great positional accuracy, rugged construction, and a scalable design for custom-size work volumes. Delta robots excel in all of these areas, and have been used for decades in industrial automation applications. In addition to their high speeds and precise motion, delta robots are easily scaled to produce smaller or larger motion systems.
Why Interchangeable Tool Heads?
In addition to the obvious ability to print multi-color objects, a toolchanger gives a 3D printer...
