Rob takes a deeper look into the AON 3D Printer at Formnext 2019 and explains the specifications, design, and functional uses.

With the AON M2, you can choose from the most advanced materials when printing your parts and achieve warp-free, accurate printing with our 135°C+ actively heated build chamber.

(PEEK) is widely regarded as one of the strongest thermoplastics on the market, offering a range of desirable mechanical properties as well as resistances to temperature and chemicals.

ULTEM™ 9085 (also known as PEI, or polyetherimide) is a versatile thermoplastic used in 3D printing which offers excellent mechanical strength and temperature resistance.

PEKK (polyetherketoneketone) is a relative of PEEK in the PAEK family, and offers similar high-performance mechanical properties, as well as temperature and chemical resistances.

Polycarbonate (PC) offers exceptional strength for a 3D printed thermoplastic. This engineering-grade plastic offers strong flame resistance, impact strength, and heat resistance.

Nylon (PA – polyamides) covers a semi-crystalline family of polymers that have many applications in 3D printing. Nylon’s high strength-to-weight ratio and low friction coefficient make it ideal for a wide range of applications.

Build Bigger. Make More.
Print large parts in a massive 18” x 18” x 25” heated build chamber. Achieve extremely fine resolution with our CNC-quality motion components.

Slash Costs by 8-10x
Our open filaments system empowers you to use the filaments suited to your project while avoiding costly proprietary alternatives.

Built for Repeatable Accuracy
Designed to reliably achieve accurate end-use parts from hundreds of materials. The improved convective flow path provides the isothermal conditions needed for repeatable production.

Making Materials Matter
Achieve better mechanical properties for your printed parts with precision thermal control, enabled by an innovative chamber heater design and engineered convective flow path.

Open Materials 3D Printer
Avoid getting tied down with costly proprietary materials, and experience the freedom of choosing between the highest quality materials offered by leading vendors.

Class-Leading Features
High Performance Materials
Designed to print aerospace-grade thermoplastics, including PEEK, PEKK, ULTEM™, carbon fiber-filled variants, and many more.

135ºC Chamber Temperature
High build chamber and bed temperatures are crucial for ensuring first layer adhesion, preventing warping and improving interlayer bonding.

Build Chamber Volume
The 18" x 18" x 25" build envelope allows you to print bigger, or run batch jobs of multiple parts at once.

Liquid-Cooled Precision
The stepper motors and both hot ends are cooled with a liquid cooling loop, which extends component lifetimes and offers accurate control over the melt-zone while extruding.

Automated Calibration
Adaptive mesh leveling ensures precision-calibrated prints across without the need for manual intervention.

Double the Design Opportunities
Dual independent toolheads / extruders allow you to design parts using multiple materials, such as soluble supports, or quickly switch between two different nozzle sizes.

Dedicated Expert Support
Expert materials and engineering support come with every machine, including on-site training with each 3D printer delivery.

Easy Remote Management
Remotely manage your print queue and machine from any device on the same network. No software installation required.
