Harness speed and scale. Spread frontline innovations and expeditionary systems faster and farther through secure mass production at the points of need.
Essentium’s open materials platform means it can support innovation across biomedical, automotive, aerospace, and electrical applications to provide optimal advantage through tooling applications.
THE HSE 3D PRINTING PLATFORM
Essentium's High Speed Extrusion (HSE) 3D Printer is designed for industrial production and performs to the level required in the most demanding manufacturing environments. Offering class-leading print speeds greater than 500 mm/sec by utilizing a non-slip, high torque extrusion system and all linear servo motors X-Y stage, the Essentium HSE 180 3D Printing Platform has the right solution for your application.
This brings an incredible toolset to the warfighter, enabling innovation and increasing readiness. No other manufacturing option gives users the ability to design a part in the morning and have a prototype in the field by the afternoon. Designed for reliability at scale, the HSE 3D Printer reduces the turnaround time and cost of your next innovation.
Implementing design changes can be costly and time-consuming – luxuries the defense and homeland response industry cannot afford – especially given the lag time in outsourced tooling while moving through multiple iterations of hundreds of parts. The Essentium HSE 3D Printer delivers the speed, size, and material versatility to handle the production of up to 85% of all the jigs and fixtures required to assemble a vehicle. This brings an incredible toolset to the warfighter, enabling innovation and increasing readiness. No other manufacturing option gives users the ability to design a part in the morning and have a prototype in the field by the afternoon. Designed for reliability at scale, the HSE 3D Printer reduces the turnaround time and cost of your next innovation.
