Important technological innovations at Formnext 2023

1000 possible robotic arm/extruder configurations, multi-material extrusion with pigment control,
and customized serial production.

Hall 11.1Stand E38 and F39

Since 2012, WASP has contributed to the opening of new frontiers in the world of digital manufacturing, moving simultaneously on several technological fronts. From the world of ceramic and architectural 3D printing, establishing itself as a forerunner in the field, to thermoplastics, with a focus on pellets and recyclates, WASP has always put three key concepts first: sustainability, innovation, and accessibility. 

This year, WASP is presenting at Formnext 2023 a series of unprecedented technological innovations in the world of LDM (Liquid Deposition Modelling) and FGF (Fused Granulate Fabrication) 3D printing.

Among the new products presented: CEREBRO, METAMORFOSI, and WASP App.

You can find us at Stands E38 -F39 Hall 11.1


What you will see at the stand

CEREBRO: Integration system between robotic arms and extruders

CEREBRO Integration system between robotic arms and WASP extruders

The two technological frontiers pursued by WASP since its start are meeting in a new product that opens the way to the world of robots: CEREBRO, an integration system between robotic arms and WASP extruders, both LDM and FGF.

CEREBRO is a state-of-the-art system that allows robotic arms to be transformed into a 3D printer. Compliant to Industry 4.0 technology, it can collaborate with multiple of WASP’s patented systems, controlling both extruders and printing tools simultaneously.

It allows more than a thousand combinations between robots and WASP extrusion technologies, including our patented FIRECAP localized heated chamber and Vacuum Buildplate System, which allows the use of different types of printing planes that are compatible with the material being used, guaranteeing excellent adhesion.

 


METAMORFOSI: Multimaterial and Multicolor pellet extrusion system

METAMORFOSI Multimaterial controlled pellet extrusion system

Over 8 years ago, WASP had already recognized the significant potential of pellet 3D printing, successfully creating the first large-scale pellet 3D printer.

All the knowledge acquired over years of work and continuous improvements has led to the development of the most advanced line of pellet 3D printers to date: WASP HDP (High Definition Pellet).

Today, WASP presents METAMORFOSI: the new patent-pending pellet extrusion system that can control and modify the position, quantity, and properties of the material at different points in the printing process.

This paves the way for a new dimension in 3D printing, making it multi-material by incorporating fibers or different materials during the printing process, altering their characteristics to make the material stiffer in some areas and more flexible in others.

Thanks to CEREBRO, our new system for integrating robots and extruders, it will be possible to use WASP HDP XL METAMORFOSI on any robotic arm, as well as WASP 3D printers.

At the trade show, WASP and Sekisai collaborated to create a one-of-a-kind piece that utilizes the controlled multicolor extrusion provided by METAMORFOSI. The piece will be printed live during the days of the trade show. Designed by Sekisai and printed by WASP using a 3MT HDP printer, this piece represents just one of the endless possibilities offered by METAMORFOSI in terms of color and pattern customization, all incorporated into the G-code.

As a first application of color control:

 


WASP App: the parametric software for customized serial production

WASP App the parametric software for customized serial production

In 2014, thanks to the work of developer Tommaso Casucci, we created our first software called Vase Generator, a specialized modeling tool for ceramic 3D printing.

Today, WASP presents WASP App, the new parametric 3D modeling software that enables the mass production of ceramic objects, transitioning from prototyping to customized serial production.

The application consists of a software for ceramic 3D printing, allowing you to create your own design objects by manipulating a set of parameters such as shape, dimensions, texture, and slicing settings.

During G-code export, the application allows you to select the number of copies of the product you want to produce in series. When used together with WASP 40100 Production, you can create a 24/7 customized serial production, thanks to the combination of three technologies: WASP 40100 LDM, Continuous Feeding System, and Automated Production System.

Thanks to the application, you’ll have the ability to create hundreds of copies of your ceramic product sets every day, all through an interface accessible even to those not experienced in 3D modeling.

WASP App v0.2 will be available to the public at the following link: www.app.3dwasp.com   


WASP 60100 HDP

WASP 60100 HDP- large pellet 3d printer

WASP 60100 HDP is a large format 3D printer designed to print directly from plastic granules.

Compared to previous models, the 60100 HDP features a frameless tempered glass door equipped with a certified 2B2 class film. Furthermore, the fume extraction unit equipped with hepa, activated carbon and dust filters guarantees a purified environment without smells.

The user experience has been further simplified with the adoption of a new 7-inch TFT touch display and an LED bar located at the top of the printer console, which allows to recognize the working status from afar.

The main innovations of the 60100 HDP is its patented FIRECAP SYSTEM, amoving heated chamber systemup to 150 °C and the vacuum retention system VAC (Vacuum Active Control), allows you to replace the printing plate in a few seconds, ensuring the total absence of micro-moves during printing even at high temperatures.
