The machine boasts a large print area of 300 x 300 x 300 mm providing you with freedom of design. The dual extruding system with electronic lifting and precise kinematics ensures high speed and accuracy of printing. Apart from this, the device has several smart features optimizing the working process, such as the automatic bed leveling, filament run-out sensor, HEPA filter with activated charcoal, and more. The Raise3D Forge1 prints high-end metal filaments from BASF that contribute to simplicity, efficiency, and safety of the printing process as well as top quality of the outputs. All these features make the Forge1 a reliable tool for small scale production of end-use parts with outstanding mechanical properties.
It is recommended to use the Forge1 3D printer with special equipment from the MetalFuse series. Thus, the polymer will be removed from the model during the catalytic debinding process, which will result in a pure metal with residual binder. The sintering process will further remove the binder due to the temperatures below the melting point of the metal. That way, the product achieves its final hardness and strength properties.
The Raise3D Forge1 prints layers from 0.25 to 0.1 mm, which makes for mass printing of parts with smooth exterior surfaces. The new catalytic debinding method not only leads to 60% off in processing time but also allows increasing the density of produced parts to up to 97% of wrought iron’s level. The machine features a silicone heat bed engineered with an automatic leveling system, which guarantees accurate calibration. The Forge1 comes with 0.4 (default), 0.6, and 0.8 mm nozzles for all your printing needs.
The build area varies depending on the number of extruders employed. It is 11.8 x 11.8 x 11.8 in (300 x 300 x 300 mm) for the single extruder print mode and 10 x 11.8 x 11.8 in (255 x 300 x 300 mm) for the dual extruder print mode. The massive volume like this allows producing complex end-use parts with improved mechanical properties in batches, which will definitely meet the requirements of small-scale manufacture.
