KOKONI launches new KOKONI SOTA 3D printer at CES
The printer has a maximum printing speed of 600mm/s and acceleration of 21,000mm/s²
KOKONI, a Chinese 3D printing brand, has launched the KOKONI SOTA, the company’s latest 3D printer, at this year’s CES. The printer pushes the boundaries of currently-possible 3D printing speed, accuracy, and stability.
With a maximum printing speed of 600mm/s and acceleration of 21,000mm/s², the KOKONI SOTA is capable of keeping up with demanding production schedules. The printer’s custom high-speed stepper motor and close-loop motor system enable a smooth and reliable performance.
KOKONI embeds the upside-down design in the company’s consumer-grade 3D printers. The inverted design reportedly brings exceptional stability with close-to-zero vibration. The exceptional stability makes it possible to print with the highest speed possible, with less than 30dB of sound, and additional benefits for printing overhang structures. KOKONI SOTA also has an advanced Optical Radar that delivers precision and accuracy, while the close-loop motor controller monitors real-time position, and adjusts for errors. The KOKONI SOTA is also very stable, thanks to the company’s use of upside-down printing and full-metal structural support.
The KOKONI SOTA is designed to make 3D printing as effortless as possible – with no assembly or manual bed leveling needed, the ability to print remotely through a WiFi connection, and a mobile app-based modeling tool. The AI-powered 3D modeling software allows users to create printing models with ease – whether hand-drawn or with photos. The constantly updated template library offers thousands of customizable models, and the water-soluble support material can be easily removed by simply rinsing.
With KOKONI SOTA’s advanced AI system, the entire printing process is carefully monitored, and any issues can be addressed in real time. This includes everything from Spaghetti and Breakage Detection to low filament alerts, as well as the resume-printing function.
The printer is equipped with advanced multi-color and multi-material printing technologies that allow for more vivid printing. The KOKONI SOTA features seven-color synchronous printing, and also supports seven printing materials, including PLA and PETG, with its 90° hotbed and 260° all-metal hot end.
