3D printer producer Prusa Analysis introduced the names of the primary prospects of its industrial 3D printing answer, named Unique Prusa Professional Automated Farm System. MOTOISM (custom-made bike components, Germany), the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (training, Germany), SCHLEIF-TEC (prototyping, Austria), and Oratek (revolutionary technological options, Switzerland) are reportedly the primary prospects.
Prusa Analysis additionally introduced its worth, beginning at €45,000 / $50,000 (VAT excl.). The AFS additionally consists of Prusa Join software program appropriate for environment friendly print administration and job planning. Upkeep plans and coaching programs can be found for the Farm System, together with on-site help and speedy printer substitute.
“The demand vastly exceeds our manufacturing capabilities, subsequently, for the primary part, we now have chosen firms which can be geographically near us and characterize the appliance of 3D printing in varied traces of enterprise,” stated Josef Prusa, the CEO at Prusa Analysis.
Prusa Analysis’s industrial portfolio
“We actually admire that we managed to ascertain cooperation with such an attention-grabbing group of companions which can be actually going to make the most of the capabilities of the AFS to the fullest. We anticipate actually shut cooperation and amassing a number of suggestions enabling us to enhance our answer even additional,” added the CEO of Prusa Analysis.
The Unique Prusa i3 MK3 3D printer was beforehand fully improved by Prusa Analysis. The MK3’s novel options are primarily supposed to assist prolong its usability and encourage laid-back customers to undertake 3D printers. To that finish, the MK3 consists of a wide range of good sensors to help pause and recovering prints at any time when one thing goes mistaken; an enhanced, adjustable print sheet to assist in post-processing; and different under-the-hood enhancements that make the MK3 Prusa’s smartest 3D printer.
Moreover, Prusa had introduced the discharge of the Unique Prusa XL, its largest desktop 3D printer. The FFF system, which was unveiled at Formnext 2021, has a construct quantity measuring 360 x 360 x 360mm, over 4 instances larger than the agency’s flagship MK3S+ and eight instances bigger than the MINI+. The XL can be Prusa’s first CoreXY 3D printer, with vibrations minimized for increased print high quality on bigger format print jobs. Moreover, the printer comes with an non-obligatory software changer add-on that permits customers to include as much as 5 impartial software heads on the identical time. Consequently, the system is well-suited to producing multi-material prints with as much as 5 completely different filaments on the identical time.
At Formnext 2022, Prusa Analysis launched another new merchandise. As an illustration, the SL1S Medical printer from Trilab firm and designed for dental labs, or industrial, delta-technology 3D printers. Prusa Analysis holds an 80% share of Trilab.
“We nonetheless need to focus totally on particular person prospects, small companies, and hobbyists. Nevertheless, we additionally see elevated demand from bigger enterprise prospects which can be changing into fed up with overpriced 3D printing options. It is sensible to cater to this demand, too,” added the CEO of Prusa Analysis.

Print farm techniques
Beforehand, BCN3D Applied sciences, a Barcelona-based producer of open-source 3D printers and developer of Impartial Twin Extruder (IDEX) expertise, had put out a video of its print farm. The print farm runs across the clock using 63 BCN3D 3D printers. BCN3D designs, manufactures, and sells desktop 3D printers, specifically the BCN3D Sigma and BCN3D Sigmax. The BCN3D Print Farm produces 47 items for every 3D printer utilizing additive manufacturing – says the corporate.
Moreover, 3D Printing Tech, based mostly in Atlanta, had revealed the strategic acquisition of 3D printing service supplier and competitor Voodoo Manufacturing, which shut down in 2020. The transaction enabled 3D Printing Tech to maintain providing 3D printing providers to most of the people and enhance its development, bringing the corporate one step nearer to working one of many largest fused deposition modeling (FDM) printing farms in the USA.
Elsewhere, Czech automotive firm Škoda revealed that it had been utilizing 3D printing to simplify its automotive enterprise, bringing prototypes, spare components, and tooling in-house. The corporate arrange a number of print farms utilizing techniques developed by firms comparable to Prusa as a part of its ‘Extra versatile with 3D print farms’ venture. Confederation of Business of the Czech Republic had acknowledged Škoda’s additive manufacturing initiative, naming it one of many nation’s 5 most revolutionary Business 4.0 functions since 2020. Moreover, the corporate introduced plans for its ‘FORCE – Future Manufacturing facility’ initiative, which might see Škoda enhance its digitization efforts at lots of its manufacturing amenities.
