HB3D was founded in 2015 by Niels Haarbosch, Erwin de Vlugt, Robert van der Vliet and Tjeerd Vos. Three engineers and a lawyer, all with a passion for robotics and the urge to make beautiful large products in an efficient and sustainable manner.
Large volume robot printing
Large-volume robot printers are complex technical systems and are currently undergoing rapid development. The trick is to perfectly coordinate the extrusion and the movements of the robot to deposit the plastic melt in the right amount and temperature for optimal adhesion between the print layers.
The settings of the printer are different for each type of material and for each product. While small robot printers are now widely used, large volume robot printers are a completely different branch of sport.
In addition to expertise in robotics, we have built up knowledge and expertise of materials for pellet extrusion (thermoplastics) for 3D robot printing (FGF = Fused Granulate Fabrication) and recently also in post-processing by robot milling.
Through years of hands-on experience with various projects, we have a good understanding of the essential dependencies in the trinity of material , printing process and design ; the basis for making high-quality products with 3D robot printers.
The technology has now developed to such an extent that we can also print constructive products : large, beautiful and strong . In the end, we increasingly focused on technical construction applications such as boats and bridges and, in addition to the product, we also print molds for the composites industry.
