The Piocreat G12 is a large industrial 3D printer based on the FGF (fused granulate fabrication) technology, which is similar to FDM 3D printing and shares the same material extrusion principle. The difference lies in the form of plastics used for printing. While FDM machines print with filaments, FGF 3D printers build parts with granular material, or pellets. The extrusion screw rotates and melts the pellets into a homogeneous mass which is forced through a nozzle under the pressure. Plastic pellets are the material for producing FDM filaments, so printing directly with granules greatly reduces the production costs.
The Piocreat G12 is a large machine perfectly suitable for various industrial applications. It has a fully enclosed build chamber with a constant temperature of 60 °C and a huge build volume allowing printing large models. The maximum print speed of 100 mm/s makes for fairly short printing times important for industrial production cycles. The maximum extrusion volume of the proprietary screw-type extruder is 5 kg/h. To ensure reliable continuous operation, the G12 is packed with a set of smart features, such as print resume function or pellet runout detector. Automatic bed leveling with a BLTouch sensor shortens print preparation time, helps avoid part deformation, and ensures proper layer adhesion.
Using pellets instead of spools of filament has another advantage, which is the opportunity to change the material without interrupting the printing process. It is also possible to change the material color simply by adding masterbatch to the pellets.
The application range of the Piocreat G12 3D printer is incredibly wide thanks to its spacious build volume, a large number of compatible materials, and industrial-grade performance. It is successfully used in automotive, aerospace, medical, chemical, and a lot of other industries. Art and interior design fields also greatly benefit from the use of the G12, as it can build pieces of furniture or sculptures, just to name a few.
The Piocreat G12 can print layers of 0.2–1.5 mm thickness. The high-temp extruder heats up to 450 °C and is equipped with interchangeable nozzles with a diameter of 0.6–6 mm. Due to the extruder construction providing strong and uniform material deposition, the printed models feature industrial-grade quality and high mechanical properties.
The Piocreat G12 can print with plastic pellets of 2–5 mm diameter and is compatible with a wide range of thermoplastics, including high-temp and engineering materials. It can process PLA, PETG, PVC, ABS, PC, PA, HDPE, TPU, EVA, fiber-reinforced composites, and others.
The G12 features a large build volume of 1200 x 1000 x 1000 mm, indispensable for industrial printing.
The Piocreat G12 is operated via an LCD touchscreen with a user-friendly interface. Printing tasks can be transferred to the machine on an SD card or from the PC via a USB connection. The printer is equipped with an emergency switch.
The manufacturer recommends using the Creality Print slicing software compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux. The slicer is easy-to-use and supports STL, OBJ, AMF, and 3DMF file formats.
