The Axo A3 from Turkish 3D printing manufacturer Axolotl Biosystems is part of the company’s A series alongside the Axo A6. Designed for professional use, this 3D bio-printer is a simple solution with a high mechanical precision and integrated system that uses a technology known as Pneumatic Driven Extrusion. But at the same time, the Axo A3 is also the most powerful 3D printer Axolotl Biosystems has developed to date. The simplicity of this printer is also evident in the fact that it is a plug-and-play bioprinter. However, users can use this machine not only for bioprinting, but also for melt electrospinning writing. This is suitable for the production of fiber structures from polymer melts, the application of which can be found in tissue engineering, for example.
Features of the Axo A3 3D Bio-printer
In addition to a build volume of 130 x 90 x 80 mm, the Axo A3 also offers its user different print head options. These differ in a heated or cooled printhead, a cell electrowriting printhead, melt electrowriting printhead, UV curing toolhead or HD camera toolhead. This makes it very valuable. especially for research purposes. In addition, the Axo A3 has a wide range of printing and temperature ranges, as these can vary depending on the application requirements. The print head can reach a temperature of up to 265°C; the print bed, on the other hand, can even be cooled down to minus 10°C, as this contains a water-based cooling system. The pressure range of the Bioprinter is 0 to 800 kPA. Another important thing to know about the Axo A3 is that it is protected from any contamination thanks to the UV-C sterilization system. This UV-C thus prevents all microbiological contamination.
