Mechanical properties? Highest quality.

The Kumovis R1 is equipped with a global laminar air flow, which allows users to heat the build chamber homogenously up to 250 degrees Celsius. The additional local air flow helps you further improve the mechanical properties of your products.

Make the build chamber your clean room.

With the help of the integrated filter system, the build chamber can be turned into a clean room to avert contamination in the build part. What’s more, the 3D printer is “clean room ready” for production in existing clean room environments and can be cleaned to medical standards.

Monitor processes. Assure quality.

Besides monitoring all relevant process parameters, the industrial-grade control system and software used in the Kumovis R1 make process analytics and documentation feasible even in highly regulated infrastructures, healthcare in particular.

What it takes to put medical 3D printing to work

In times of digitalization, medtech has embraced the competitive benefits of planning software. Now the industry’s demand for process reliability in 3D printing medical devices keeps increasing. With Kumovis, you get everything it takes to integrate the benefits of both software and hardware.

01

Temperature management is key to superb mechanical properties.

It is one thing to process materials such as PEEK, PPSU or bioresorbable polymers – quite another to 3D print implantable and functionalized medical devices out of them.

Fully controllable build chamber heating – up to 250 degrees Celsius

  • Prevent warping on your build parts
  • Increases layer adhesion
  • Adapt build chamber temperature to suit specific polymers

Laminar airflow enabling homogenous temperature distribution

  • Guarantee reproducibility
  • No temperature gradient within the build part

Adaptive local temperature management

  • Adjust local cooling for each strand and layer individually
  • Heat up to further increase layer adhesion 

Less post-processing. Easy removal of support structures.

Cool boundary layers locally to remove support structures, and consequently increase surface quality as well as dimensional accuracy.

02

A clean and safe environment – inside and outside the R1`s build chamber.

The basic requirement for the production of medical products is cleanliness. At Kumovis, it begins with the materials for the machine’s components and ends with the integration of advanced clean room technology.

Suitable for operating in clean rooms

  • R1 3D printer design focuses on use in standard medical production environments
  • Receive support to pass medical qualification process (IQ,OQ,PQ)
  • Use the extractor hood to connect the printer to your clean room air exhaust  

Filter system for integrating clean room

  • Keep particles out and prevent contamination using clean room integration
  • Build chamber fulfills ISO class 7 clean room requirements according to DIN EN ISO 14644 

Advanced contamination prevention

  • No contamination of filament and final part through used materials in the  Kumovis R1
  • Equipped, among other things, with touch-to-open hinges for easy cleaning and maintenance

Use the integrated filter system to prevent foreign particles from reaching the build part.

03

Monitor and document your processes using real-time data.

In highly regulated industries, process safety and documentation are the top priorities when it comes to production. Besides offering the industry-specific 3D printing hardware, Kumovis provides the medical community with the latest technologies regarding apps and software.
Personalized service and maintenance platform
