Aleph Objects, Inc. Announces New Hardware at CES 2017

LOVELAND, COLORADO, USA – Aleph Objects, Inc., recently named the #1 fastest-growing privately held U.S. computer hardware company by Inc. Magazine, announced a new hardware product at CES 2017. In Q1 2017 the company will release the new LulzBot TAZ MOARstruder Tool Head.

 

“The LulzBot TAZ MOARstruder Tool Head enables high speed and high strength 3D prints, with the robustness and reliability that users expect from the LulzBot platform,” Aleph Objects, Inc. President Harris Kenny said. “This tool head is ideal for prototyping in labs, offices, classrooms, libraries, and workshops.”

The LulzBot TAZ MOARstruder Tool Head is a high output tool head with an extra-long heater block, dual print cooling fans, and a 1.2 mm diameter nozzle. This is all mounted on the modular tool head carriage, so users are a single screw and a plug away from upgrading to higher speed Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing. Like all LulzBot tool heads, the MOARstruder features an open filament format, meaning it is compatible with current and future materials that will be introduced to the market.

After upgrading, users can 3D print 0.3 mm to 1.2 mm thick layers and up to 100 grams (0.22 lbs) per hour, ideal for rapid prototyping and production environments. Users can take advantage of provided quickprint profiles in Cura LulzBot Edition, the company’s popular Free Software program.

Like all LulzBot products, the LulzBot MOARstruder Tool Head is a Free Software and Open Source Hardware product that respects user freedom. It is already certified Open Source Hardware (US000053) through the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA.org) and freely licensed development files can be found online here: http://devel.lulzbot.com/TAZ/accessories/opah/

“Our engineers have been relying on the LulzBot TAZ MOARstruder Tool Head internally for months to make our own prototypes and jigs,” Aleph Objects, Inc. R&D Manager Julie Pettit said. “Not every print needs ultrafine resolution. Sometimes, speed and strength matter more.”

The LulzBot TAZ MOARstruder Tool Head joins other tool heads supported on the LulzBot platform, offering the option to upgrade to whole new capabilities from a versatile and capable base machine:
