Join the live demo of an advanced 3D printer using a 6-axis robotic arm on the 1st of November at 13:00. This new 3D printing technology is being developed under the TB-RAM CoE project, a collaborative project by Novia UAS, VAMK and the University of Vaasa at Technobothnia research centre, Vaasa.

The objectives of the project include free-form printing, large-size printing, and printing using a wide variety of materials. Free-form printing refers to a printing approach that minimizes or makes no use of support structure. Traditional desktop printing has a limited build volume, usually limited to the size of the printer, while the Robotic Printer can produce larger parts. So far, the team has tested over 7 different materials.

Additive Manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing is gaining prominence in several industrial, personal/hobbyist and educational applications. The Technobothnia Robotic Additive Manufacturing Center of Excellence (TB-RAM CoE) project has the goal of bringing this new technology to local companies, students, and educators alike; and to deepen the local competencies with regards to additive manufacturing.

Webinar on 1st of November

The TB-RAM project team holds a webinar 1st of November, where they present the project results as well as showcase the newly developed platform and hardware. The webinar is conducted through the online platform WebEx from 13:00 to 14.30. No prior registration is required.
