FUSION3’S ‘F-SERIES PLATFORM’:
HIGH- PERFORMANCE, FAST 3D PRINTERS
FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling), the 3D printing technology that we at Fusion3 utilize, is a fantastic technology that provides a much lower cost alternative to injection molding. However, the FDM process is slow as it puts the plastic down in a small bead, one layer at a time. FDM also often struggles to approximate the visual quality of injection molding since it is a layering technology.
Fusion3 discovered a way to utilize engineering methods, derived from automotive performance tuning, to develop a fast 3D printer (which became our patented “F-Series” motion control system). In the years since, we have built on this knowledge and expertise in printing higher temperature materials such as ABS, Nylons, and Polycarbonate in the development of our 3D printers and deliver high-performance 3D printing solutions for our business and education customers.
It is this focus on precision, speed, reliability and value that differentiates Fusion3 from our competitors. Many 3D printers can meet one or maybe two of these requirements, but only Fusion3’s 3D printers delivers on all of these, thanks to our unique technology and focus on throughput.
FAST 3D PRINTING AT HIGH QUALITY
POWERED BY FUSION3’S ‘F-SERIES’ PLATFORM
Proprietary Motion Control System
20-40% Faster With Similar or Better Print Quality Than Competition
The ‘F-Series’ platform is a variant of the ‘CoreXY’ motion control system, which combines high stiffness and a low moving mass.
As part of our question for high-performance, durability & reliability, and affordability, our F306, F400 and F410 models all used a unique Kevlar cable system that is ultralight and minimizes backlash and the stretching found with traditional rubber belts.
Our newest 3D printer, EDGE, takes the ‘F-Series’ design to a new level, employing high-quality linear rails and special fiberglass reinforced belts. The investment into these new components allowed our engineers to increase travel speeds while maintaining even higher precision and accuracy. Ultimately this means customers still experience the fastest print speeds, 20-40% faster than others in our class at standard settings, while achiving similar if not better print quality. With industry-leading accuracy and speed, Fusion3’s EDGE is the highest quality, fast 3D printer available.
Since our inception, Fusion3 has used our own proprietary extruder and we are now at our 3rd generation deployed for use with EDGE. The 3.0 Extruder has evolved to use a belt and metal gears (instead of nylon gears), an improved filament sensor with a dynamic timeout adjustment (for better performance with slow printing materials), a new metal spring grabber, and utilizes push-to-fit connectors for the bowden tube.
