Essentium has announced it is to launch the HSE 240 HT, a new compact 3D printer featuring its High Speed Extrusion technology, with dual extruders, later this month.
At 1168mm wide x 795 mm deep x 1687 mm high, the HSE 240 HT 3D Printer has been designed to be small enough in footprint to fit in small and medium-sized factory spaces and university labs, yet despite being ‘compact’ by Essentium’s standards, the machine still offers a build area of 430 x 350 x 405mm.
The 3D printer features automatic filament switching in order to reduce downtime, allowing for the creation of more parts in a compact environment.
The HSE 240 HT has three print modes that can create highly accurate parts from different materials in a single print without sacrificing quality and performance.
With a claimed maximum nozzle temperature of 550°C and a build chamber capable of reaching up to 185°C, the Essentium HSE 240 HT has been designed to handle a wide range of filaments, including composites.
Essentium CEO Blake Teipel, said: “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.”
