VORONEZH, 20 Jan. Specialists of the Voronezh center for additive technologies has developed a 3D printer with two machines for molding plastic materials, informed the government of the region.

Voronezh center of additive technologies started the company “Voronezhselmash” in the spring of 2014. On Tuesday, the Governor of the region Alexey Gordeev held a working meeting with the Chairman of the Board of Directors of LLC “Voronezhselmash” Grigory Chuiko, who told the Governor about the new development of centre for additive technologies.

“Specialists of the company designed and manufactured dogextreme 3D printer, which belongs to a better class of 3D printers and able to produce technically complex products. The new model was the result of technology development of educational and personal 3D printers and is already the first experience of preindustrial production of cars”, — stated in the message.

According to Chuiko, a 3D printer with two extruders (machines for molding plastic materials by shaping, by means of pressing (extrusion) through a Profiler) was in demand, and there are already first applications to the printer with machine-building enterprises. This year the staff of the center of additive technologies plan to create a production printer that is similar to the import machines.

Additive manufacturing is a technology for producing parts by successive “build-up” material layer by layer, in this it differs from the traditional technologies of mechanical processing, where the item is produced by removing excess.
