Abstract: front page image
(EN)A CNC machine for additive manufacturing including a worktable (21) displaceable along a y-axis, a gantry (24) disposed along an x-axis, either fixed or displaceable along the y-axis, a carriage (27) on such gantry displaceable along the x-axis and including a thermoplastic material extrusion conduit, a tool carrier (31) mounted on such carriage displaceable along a z-axis, a dispersion conduit mounted on such tool carrier accommodating an applicator (70), means mounted on such applicator for extruding a molten bead of a thermoplastic material (71, 72), a flexible hose (60) interconnecting such molten material forming means and such applicator, a plurality of servomotors (41, 46, 66) for linearly or rotationally displacing such components along or about such axes and a computer for controlling such component displacements.
(FR)L'invention concerne une machine CNC de fabrication additive, comprenant une table porte-pièce (21) déplaçable le long d'un axe y, un portique (24) agencé le long d'un axe x, fixe ou déplaçable le long de l'axe y, un chariot (27) placé sur ledit portique, déplaçable le long de l'axe x et comprenant un conduit d'extrusion d'un matériau thermoplastique, un porte-outil (31) monté sur ledit chariot, déplaçable le long d'un axe z, un conduit de distribution monté sur ledit porte-outil et logeant un applicateur (70), des moyens montés sur ledit applicateur pour l'extrusion d'un cordon d'un matériau thermoplastique fondu (71, 72), un tuyau flexible (60) raccordant les uns aux autres lesdits moyens de formage du matériau fondu et ledit applicateur, une pluralité de servomoteurs (41, 46, 66) servant au déplacement linéaire ou rotatif desdits composants le long ou autour desdits axes, et un ordinateur qui commande les déplacements desdits composants.
