Introducing the first industrial 3D printer equipped with true independent dual extruders (IDEX), the Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 280i HT 3D Printing Platform.
The Essentium HSE 280i HT 3D Printer offers world-class print speeds five to 15x faster than competitors. Ready to handle the most demanding applications, it can process high-performance super-polymers, enabling rapid production of parts with excellent dimensional accuracy.
By utilizing a non-slip, high-torque extrusion system with all linear servo motors, the Essentium HSE 280i HT 3D Printer offers a no compromise solution, offering the speed and reliability to 3D print at scale.
This newest Essentium technology takes the speed and strength of the HSE 180 3D Printing Platform to the next level with groundbreaking IDEX technology, making it the ultimate machine tool of additive manufacturing.
TRUE INDEPENDENT DUAL EXTRUDER
• Two heads, fully independent
• Prints two materials, identical parts, or unique parts
• Independent movement on the X and Y-axis effectively gives users two printers for the price of one
HSE 280i HT 3D Printer Modes
In addition to single-head printing, the Essentium HSE 280i HT 3D Printer features four additional print modes. The true independence of the print heads in both the X and Y-axis gives users the flexibility to print parts at scale, no matter the application.
SINGLE HEAD MODE
Single Head Mode uses one head to print five to 15x faster than competitors, equipping manufacturers to print at the speed of relevance.
• Print two identical parts simultaneously
• Doubles productivity
• Ideal for additive manufacturing at scale
• Requires upgrade
• Print two unique parts concurrently
• Two machines for the price of one
• Ideal for low volume, high mix lean manufacturing
• Available Winter 2021
• Print two different materials or nozzle sizes
• Wipe stations ensure clean prints
• Ideal for parts with flexible and rigid features
• Print support for parts in progress
• Use soluble material
• Ideal for printing complex geometries
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.
