We got rid of the traditional stepper motor-belt-and-pulley system and we replaced it with a linear motor system. Movement speed and Printing speed are two different things. Movement speed is how fast the printer nozzle can move on its own. Printing speed is how fast the nozzle can move while printing a good part. We have achieved movement speed because of our linear motors. We are able to print at those high speeds because of our non-slip hobs and powerful extruder.
We can bring the temperature of the nozzle from 20°C to 600°C in less than three seconds. Our ability to raise the temperature so high and accurately is what enables us to melt the plastic thoroughly by the time it exits the nozzle.
Traditional 3D printers use a lot of energy when heating a large heat block to bring the nozzle to temperature. We decreased the thermal mass of the heat block, decreasing the amount of time it takes to heat.
By implementing linear motors we have reduced the number of moving parts. Our closed-loop-feedback positioning system not only allows you to print accurately but consistently. Our high-performance extruder ensures there will be no skipping or slipping during extrusion.
The HSE will have a universal power supply, so it can be plugged in to any outlet, 110V or 220V. The HSE will draw between 5-10A so the circuit breakers and outlet load need to be configured accordingly.
Our HSE will be a closed chamber with a multi-modal heating experience so you have minimal warping. Note: Warping is typically caused by a significant difference in temperature between the part and the environment. A closed chamber and heated build plate allows you to keep the environmental temperature consistent.
In a stepper motor, the shaft rotates using magnets arranged in a circle. To move the nozzle back and forth, you have to use belts and pulleys, but a linear motor can move a nozzle by arranging the magnets in a straight line. Imagine unwrapping a servo motor and laying it flat.

29 x 20 x 25.5 in
< .1 mm
The machine accuracy is <40 microns, 0.001 mm with the ability to hold 0.01 mm, X & Y = 0.001 mm resolution and can hold +/- 0.05 mm in motion.
The HSE Platform will come standard with an all sapphire tip hot-end nozzle called the “Hozzle” – Essentium’s proprietary nozzle and heating unit.
Our Hozzle is a combination of a heater unit and nozzle in one efficient design.
We will have three nozzle sizes: .4, .8, and 1.2 mm. There will be a single extruder, with a dual extruder available in mid-2019.
Yes, the printer can run some of the highest loadings available. There is no need to upgrade the system as it comes standard.
It will be a high temperature, industrial glass bed.
Yes. The maximum temperature is >200°C, multi-surface heated bed.
You can do both - it has active automatic leveling, but you can also manually level the build plate.
It is a fully-enclosed, multi-modal heated chamber with an operating temperature of >110°C. This means you will be able to print high-temperature materials such as PEEK.
We will have materials certified for the platform, but you are welcome to use any materials.
Yes, we will have a machine-mounted dryer system on the bottom of the platform that can hold up to four 15kg spools.
The machine is designed for 1.75 mm. You will be able to print materials on the full material pyramid from PCTG up to PEEK/CF.
The system will be open, however the materials will be certified to perform on the platform.
Yes, the system will be full open.
Customers will be able to use standard software like Simiplify3D and Cura, anything that works with Marlin style of G-code.
Yes, there will be updates but it’s under user control. There are no additional costs unless the customer choses to upgrade to a premium software.
Yes. However, the machine only has seven moving parts, with no belts or pulleys and it is built to SMT standards. In addition to onsite repairs, we will be able to answer questions by email and phone.
Yes, this will be standard with the annual service contract
Yes, future updates on the hardware will be available. There will be a range of costs and some updates will be free.
One year. Additional warranty/service agreements are available for purchase.
