Japanese 3D-printer 4 meters




Delta robots were invented in 1980. They consist of three arms, attached to the base by means of universal joints. 3D-printers are one of the most popular varieties of delta robots, and more recently the Japanese created perhaps the largest such printer.

Unnamed until 3D-printer was created by the Japanese company Genkei. It reaches more than 4 meters in height, that is more than twice the growth of the majority of people. Genkei worked together with the staff of the Tokyo University of Art and Design to create a printer that will be exhibited in the Museum of the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and music.

The exhibition will open on 19 July and will continue until August 8 – Tokyo residents would have enough time to look at the work of a giant printer. The device still needs to collect in the premises of the museum, and then it should run in test mode, three to five days before you really start 3D-press.

It is worth noting that Japan, despite the many technological breakthroughs that are still poorly manifests itself in the field of new technologies and devices associated with 3D-printing. As reported, the main innovation of the 4-meter printer Genkei – not size, and the device is a syringe-machine that will use plastic beads instead of coils with melting tape. With this printing speed should increase.
