Grant Flaharty, Aleph Objects’ CEO and President, stated, “The TAZ Pro
is the first true multiple-material 3D printer with dual linear actuated
hot ends at a prosumer price point.”
TAZ Pro Enables Multi-Material Printing for Optimal Part
The TAZ Pro’s multiple material capabilities goes beyond competitive
offerings which are usually limited to printing with the same material
type in different colors, or the second material being only for soluble
support. The TAZ Pro features independent vertical lifting E3D hot ends
with 360-degree part cooling, delivering clean transitions between
material types with similar melting points. Durable and high-strength
composite materials can be printed within the same part, as well as a
wide range of materials with soluble supports for complex prints.
Flexible materials with a Shore A hardness as low as 85A and
industrial-grade polymers can also be printed in the same print.
The hardened-steel components of the TAZ Pro enable printing with
engineered polymers or high-heat composites that are too abrasive for
typical out-of-the-box desktop 3D printers. LulzBot 3D printers support
the industry’s widest array of thermoplastics from leading premium
filament manufacturers including flexible, rigid, composite, soluble,
conductive, high strength, and chemically-resistant materials.
TAZ Pro Provides Superior Print Quality and Industrial-Grade
The new Z-axis belt drive delivers fast cycle times for quicker
throughput. The reduction of Z wobble through the belt drive and new
X/Y/Z backlash compensation improves 3D printed part quality and
accuracy. An increased size of 280 x 280 x 285 mm (11.02” x 11.02” x
11.22”) delivers a large print volume, while the dual filament run-out
sensors alarm when a new filament reel is needed.
TAZ Pro Makes it Easy to Get Professional Results
Enhanced electronics provide for greater processing power and memory for
complex parts, added functionality with improved visibility from a new
5” full color touch screen, and quiet operation while sitting right on
your desk. TAZ Pro’s automated X/Y/Z offset calibration, nozzle wiping,
and self-leveling features ensure exceptional, expedited results. Cura
LulzBot Edition Software continues to include pre-configured print
profiles, tested by Aleph Objects’ team of experts, for over 35 filament
