With 1.6 Million USD foundation, what do we get from Panowin F1
In the beginning of 2016, Panowin Technologies (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., released a new 3D printer: Panowin F1. On April 2014, Panowin F1 started a project on Kickstarter as model Trinus, leaded by their US partner, Kodama Inc. For now there are about 3,200 backers with over 1.6 million USD foundation in the project. And it is said that Panowin F1 has a big advantage for the great working performance, good looking and reasonable price.
On Nov 3rd, 2016, Antarctica Bear have seen the Panowin F1 in the facility of Panowin. The market manager, Miss Zhou Fei introduced all the detail to us. Now we shall give you the detailed review of the equipment.
***The separated modular design**
Panowin F1 is a 3D printer requires assembling. The all modular is made by Aluminium alloy or still. The whole package is about 25 pounds.
The structure is very simple and clear. The key parts include: slide module, extruder and PCB controller. There are total 6 modules and you can finish the assembling in 9 steps. Even if a beginner can finish the assembling within 1 hour with the help of manual. A experienced user will only need 15-45 minutes.
According to the Panowin engineer, the main mechanical structure was all model-casted by aluminium alloy. Therefor the whole structure is very steady. The stability and accuracy.
***Industrial level screw slider**
The screw-drive structure has more accuracy, less mechanical clearance and more torque power.
***Turbo fan cooling extruder**
The extruder has a double cooling fan design. The auto wind speed controlled turbo fan has a very high effect on the model cooling and improve the print quality. And the improved cooling end and extrude pipe design can ensure smooth of printing.
The nozzle of the extruder is removable. There are different types of the nozzle with different diameters to fulfill different printing requirement.
The extruder can be replaced by a 500 mW laser head. The 3D printer can be transferred to a small laser cutter with cutting and engraving function. Also it can be transferred to more type such as food printer, painting robot, etc.
***Integrated PCB controller**
The controller integrated all the function on it. All the modules are connected by the colorful port through the cable.
***Gridded plastic printing platform**
The printing platform has the gridded surface. The whole platform is press-casted with special material. While printing, the material is easier to stick on the surface. After printing, the product is easier to come off.
And there is a heated print platform as an optional part to order. While using the ABS or some materials requires heat up, or while the room temperature is low, the heated platform can make the material stick on the surface much more easily.
***High definition LCD touch screen control panel**
The HD LCD screen is another additional component. The screen connected by a hot-plugged port with PCB controller. And user can monitor the file, working temperature, speed and the rate of progress on it.
***High efficient slice software: Pango**
The software is using multi-threaded technology to speed up the slicing program. The working speed can be 2-4 times faster than the normal slice software.
