The Essentium HSE 180-S HT 3D printer is Essentium’s top-of-the-range model, capable of printing low-temp and standard materials as well as high-temp polymers including PEKK, PEEK and PESU for specific engineering applications.

But that’s not all. The HSE 180-S HT is powered by Essentium’s latest-generation all linear servo motors with a direct-drive servo-controlled extruder system. The result is the ability to print at speeds greater than 500 mm/s. That’s 5 to 15x faster than conventional FFF machines, making it a truly valuable manufacturing tool.

The speed factor

Essentium designed the HSE 180-S HT to print significantly faster than conventional 3D printers. The printer uses an all linear servo motor during the X-Y stage to eliminate wasted movement during printing. In fact, it achieves a linear motion speed greater than a metre per second without sacrificing print quality.

The result is a faster 3D printing experience you can rely on, with the motion system specifically designed to cope with speed at scale, ensuring you can make the most of the massive 740 x 510 x 650 mm build volume.

The material factor

The HSE 180-S HT prints a wide range of engineering and performance polymers, as well as standard filaments and low-temp plastics.

The high-temp materials include PPS - CF, ABS, ASA, PEEK, PEEK - CF, PEEK ESD, PEKK - CF, PEKK ESD, PESU and PPA - CF. Many of these are used for specific engineering applications, such as PEEK, which is used in aerospace to make functional parts.

Additionally, the HSE 180-S HT prints these low-temp materials: PLA XTR, TPU - 74D, TPU - 74D ESD, TPU - 90A FR, PCTG, PCTG ESD and PA – CF, and these standard materials: PA, PP, PET, HTN, HTN ESD and HTN - CF25.
