Essentium's dual extruder 3D printer
Essentium Inc., a provider of industrial additive manufacturing (AM) solutions, debuted its Essentium High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 240 HT Dual Extruder 3D Printer at Formnext. Featuring a new industrial design including a single dual extrusion print head, the latest addition to the Essentium HSE portfolio is designed to maximize the performance, reliability, and efficiency of parts production — all within a small footprint.
At 1,168mm x 795mm x 1,687mm high, the HSE 240 3D printer is small enough to fit in small and medium-sized factory spaces and university labs. It features automatic filament switching to reduce downtime, creating more parts in a compact environment. The HSE 240 has three print modes that can create highly accurate parts from different materials in a single print without sacrificing quality and performance.
The HSE 240 can speed time to production of complex parts while significantly reducing post-processing costs. As an open material platform, it allows customers flexibility in material printing options giving them design freedom to innovate and make their visions a reality.
Blake Teipel, Ph.D., CEO of Essentium, says, “Whether a manufacturer is creating a one-off jig or scaling up their entire production, they need AM solutions that remove the complexity of traditional manufacturing and deliver savings in order of magnitude while speeding time to market. The small yet mighty Essentium HSE 240 HT Dual Extruder 3D Printer has been designed to empower manufacturers challenged with space constraints to enjoy transformative AM opportunities at the speed, scale, and economics they have come to rely on from Essentium.”
