Printing big with carbon fibre-reinforced nylon and PETG, Robox 3D printers with the Olsson Ruby nozzle are helping a leading materials handling equipment manufacturer stay ahead of the competition

“Big Dave and his little brother make parts in days that would otherwise take weeks or even months to prototype or manufacture conventionally. With cost savings of over £40k achieved in the last year alone, our Robox 3D printers have become an integral part of our business and we’re pleased to call CEL our partners.”

Our RoboxPRO and RoboxDual 3D printers, “Big Dave” and “Little Dave”, have enabled us to make durable, accurate and cost-effective prototypes quickly with a number of design iterations we simply couldn’t achieve with traditional processes.

Tim Murrow commented: "As a leading manufacturer of castors, wheels and materials handling equipment, being able to create high quality prototype parts and tooling quickly is essential in helping us win business and stay one step ahead of our competitors."

With the new SingleX head, we are now able to use engineering materials such as nylon infused with carbon fibre. The Olsson Ruby nozzle included in the head is incredibly hard-wearing and works with the toughest, most abrasive materials. Using RoboxPRO, we can now produce very large, robust parts that look great and are suitable for trialling on real sack trucks in the field.

Matt Walker added: "We considered other 3D printers but settled on RoboxPRO as it not only meets our demanding needs at an affordable price, but also comes with fantastic support. The technical support team at CEL are friendly and always happy to help us get the most of our 3D printers."
