What is True IDEX?

Pioneering innovation, the HSE 280i 3D Printing Platform stands out as the initial industrial 3D printer to provide authentic Independent Dual Extruders (IDEX). Distinguishing itself from other IDEX machines in the market, which position print heads on the same X-axis gantry, the HSE 280i ensures true independence by allowing unrestricted movement on both the X and Y axes. This sets it apart from “semi-IDEX” machines, which are constrained to synchronous Y-axis print modes.

Five Print Modes

With five distinct print modes, the HSE 280i 3D Printer provides a versatile printing experience. The genuine independence of the print heads along both the X and Y-axes offers users the flexibility to efficiently produce parts at scale.

Single Head Mode

Achieve unparalleled printing speed with Single Head Mode, utilizing a single head to print at a rate five to 15 times faster than competitors. Manufacturers can now print at the speed required for staying relevant in the industry.

Copy Mode

Double your productivity with Copy Mode. This innovative feature allows for the simultaneous printing of two identical parts, making it an ideal choice for additive manufacturing at scale.

Multi-Process Mode

Unlock new possibilities with Multi-Process Mode, enabling the printing of two materials or nozzle sizes. This capability is perfect for creating parts with a combination of flexible and rigid features.

Support Mode

Introducing Support Mode, a game-changer for printing complex geometries. This mode facilitates the printing of support structures for parts in progress, utilizing soluble or breakaway materials for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

The HSE 280i 3D Printer stands out as the first industrial 3D printer with true independent dual extruders (IDEX). Unlike other IDEX machines, it allows each head full independence on both the X and Y-axis, enabling versatile printing options like support material, identical parts, or unique parts simultaneously. In contrast, typical “semi-IDEX” machines have print heads on the same X-axis gantry, restricting them to synchronous Y-axis movements.

The HSE 280i 3D Printer features four distinct print modes:

  • Single Head Mode: Prints individual parts at a relevant speed.
  • Support Mode: Generates support structures for parts in progress.
  • Multi-Process Mode: Prints using two different materials or filament diameters.
  • Copy Mode: Simultaneously prints two identical parts.

Note: Independent Mode is a planned future feature.

The HSE 280i 3D Printer is an independent dual extrusion printer offering five print modes. In contrast, the HSE 180 series 3D printers consist of single-head extrusion printers with one print mode.

Unlocking the Copy Mode feature incurs a one-time fee. This functionality enables the machine to operate as two printers simultaneously, effectively doubling productivity.

Users have the option to utilize either water-soluble or breakaway support materials for their prints.

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