Arevo Labs of Santa Clara, Calif., a maker of additive manufacturing machines, has introduced a scalable, articulating-arm robot-based platform for fabricating 3-D printed composite parts.
Arevo's technology is tailored to the smallest ABB six-axis robot, the IRB 120, but can be scaled up for larger robots.
Arevo's software suite includes CAM software to convert CAD models to positions for the robot and the company's composite deposition hardware. Also, Arevo has a kimematics simulator that interprets deposition instructions to optimize the part construction.
“We are excited to be the first to develop a robot-based additive manufacturing platform optimized for component parts,' said Hemant Bheda, founder of Arevo Labs. “Unencumbered by the constraints of conventional Cartesian systems, this platform is the dawn of the additive manufacturing work cell for the aerospace and defense factory of the future.”
