FULLY INDEPENDENT

Fully Independent

The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer is the industry’s first 3D printer equipped with true independent dual extruders (IDEX), meaning each head is fully independent on both the X and Y-axis.

SPEED AND RELIABILITY

Speed And Reliability

By utilizing a non-slip, high torque extrusion system with all linear servo motors, the HSE 280i HT 3D Printer offers a no compromise solution, offering the speed and reliability to 3D print at scale.

Open Ecosystem

Are you curious about the value that the Essentium HSE 280i HT 3D Printer can bring to your business but don’t know where to start?

What is true idex?

The Essentium HSE 280i HT 3D Printing Platform is the first industrial 3D printer that offers true IDEX. Other IDEX machines on the market feature print heads that are placed on the same X-axis gantry, preventing independent movement on the Y-axis. This limits these “semi-IDEX” machines to print modes that are synchronous on the Y-axis.

Conventional Dual Extruder

Conventional
Dual Extruder

  • One head, two nozzles
  • Prints primary filament and support material
  • Second nozzle may leave filament deposits
Semi-Independent Dual Extruder

Semi-Independent
Dual Extruder

  • Two heads, independent movement in the X-axis
  • Prints with two materials and two identical parts
  • Fixed on the X-axis gantry, preventing independent movement on the Y-axis
True Independent Dual Extruder

True Independent
Dual Extruder

  • Two heads, fully independent
  • Prints two materials, identical parts, or unique parts
  • Independent movement in the X and Y-axis effectively gives users two machines for the price of one

Five Print Modes

The Essentium HSE 280i HT 3D Printer features five 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.

Single Head Mode

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.

Copy Mode

Copy Mode

Double productivity with Copy Mode. This mode unlocks the ability to print two identical parts simultaneously, ideal for AM at scale.

Independent Mode

Independent Mode

Get two machines for the price of one with Independent Mode. This mode allows users to print two unique parts concurrently, ideal for low volume, high mix manufacturing.

Multi-Process Mode

MULTI-PROCESS MODE

Multi-Process Mode allows users to print with two materials or nozzle sizes ideal for parts with both flexible and rigid features.

Support Mode

Support Mode

Support Mode makes it possible to print support for parts in progress using soluble or breakaway material, ideal for printing complex geometries.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are independent dual extruders?
3D printers that feature independent dual extruders (IDEX) use two print heads that move independently, enabling users to print support material, two of the same parts, or two unique parts at once. The Essentium 280i HT 3D Printer is the first industrial 3D printer on the market that offers true independent dual extruders, meaning each head is fully independent on both the X and Y-axis. Other IDEX machines on the market feature print heads that are places on the same X-axis gantry, preventing independent movement on the Y-axis. This limits these “semi-IDEX” machines to print modes that are synchronous on the Y-axis.

The Essentium 280i HT 3D Printer is equipped with four print modes.

  • Single Head Mode prints single parts at the speed of relevance
  • Support Mode prints support for parts in progress
  • Multi-Process Mode prints two different materials or two different filament diameters
  • Copy Mode prints two identical parts simultaneously
  • Independent Mode Coming Winter 2021

The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer is an independent dual extrusion printer with five print modes, while the HSE 180 3D Printer series are single-head extrusion printers equipped with one print mode.

The only feature that requires a one-time fee to unlock is copy mode. This feature gives the machine the ability to print as if it were two printers, doubling productivity.

Users can print with water-soluble or breakaway support materials.

The HSE 280i HT 3D Printer has a different build volume for each print mode.
