22 IDEX High-Temp 3D Printer – Vision Miner

With dual independent extruders capable of 500ºC, an actively-heated chamber reaching 90ºC, and a triple-motor, true-self-leveling 200ºC bed, coupled with the fully open material system, the 22 IDEX is unlocking the potential of in-house additive manufacturing, at a price that disrupts everything the industry has seen before.

PERFORMANCE MATERIALS

UNLIMITED FILAMENT OPTIONS

500ºC

Independent Dual-Extruder Hotends

Maximum temperatures give you the ability to print any Performance Thermoplastic on the market, from PLA to PEEK, PEKK, ULTEM™ , PPSU, and more. Unlike other machines, BOTH hotends reach the full 500ºC, enabling multi-material, copy mode, mirror mode, and full use of supports - soluble and otherwise.

200ºC

True Self-Leveling Build Plate

Never manually level your bed again. Triple Z-Axis motors enable true self-leveling of the build platform, combined with 128-point+ mesh leveling (technically unlimited points), so the hotends will compensate for any variation in the build surface. On top of that (literally), the QUAD-motor XY gantry squares itself -- your parts will maintain accuracy over time, without having to constantly recalibrate.

90ºC

Actively Heated Chamber

Performance thermoplastics are next to impossible without a heated build environment - the 22 IDEX heats up to 90ºC, enabling functional high-temp materials with solid mechanical properties. 

QUALITY CONSTRUCTION

MADE USING TOP-OF-THE-LINE COMPONENTS

LINEAR RAILS

Genuine Hiwin Linear-Rail Motion System

We were tired of poor construction and cheap components - when building the 22 IDEX, we ensured it was constructed only with the highest quality components, giving you the precision of an industrial machine on your desk. Robust high-temp stepper motors, linear rails, German wiring and industry-leading electronics means you get consistent print quality and accuracy, while minimizing overall system maintenance. Using High-Temperature rails and extra-wide Kevlar Belts, the 22 IDEX stays in-spec with ease.

TRIPLE MOTOR Z-AXIS

True Self-Leveling Build Platform

Most printers require manual leveling, in addition to planar-offset or mesh-leveling. Not so, with the 22 IDEX - we've integrated three Z-Axis motors to physically level the build platform before each print, combined with a 128-point mesh leveling process to eliminate all guesswork. This means that your prints will start at the perfect height, every single time. It's a game-changer.

NON-PLANAR READY

6 Independent Axis and 5 Degrees of Freedom

The self-leveling bed and auto-squaring XY gantry not only makes great prints, but enables non-planar printing to an entirely new level -- you're not just buying any other 3D Printer, the 22 IDEX is prepared to take on a whole new world of multi-axis 3D Printing. All 6 axis are independent, giving you a full 5 degrees of freedom, meaning your machine is already prepared for the next generation of non-planar printing and slicing software, once it becomes available.

INDUSTRY-LEADING FEATURES

Built-in Automatic Filament Drying System

The filament on the 22 IDEX is stored inside the chamber while printing -- this means that when using the heated chamber with hygroscopic filaments (read: most filaments), the filament is kept dry, eliminating much of the oozing, blobbing, and poor surface finishes due to moisture.

Auto Shutoff and Safety Systems, with Power Loss Recovery

Safety is paramount, in the workplace and workshop. That's why we've insured extreme measures to protect the safety of you and your team - the printer will automatically shut down if it senses overheating, thermal runaways, or electrical errors. High-quality Solid State Relays and German wires are just a fraction of the safety features designed into the machine, from the ground up.

Dual-Geared Direct Drive Extruders on both Hotends

Want to print Flexible materials? Go for it! Carbon Fiber and Glass Fiber filaments? No problem! These powerful extruders can handle not only the toughest filaments, but the softest ones too. On top of that, the 22 IDEX comes with hardened steel nozzles, standard. This means you can produce parts in CF Nylon, CFPEEK, or any other abrasive composites, straight out of the box.

AMERICAN SERVICE & SUPPORT

We're here to help you -- that's our promise, becuase if you win, we win.

We cross-train our team to use everything we sell -- there's a good chance that whoever answers your phone call, can also solve your technical problems, should any occur. In the rare event you need an expert, we staff passionate additive manufacturing techs to help you.

No time zone differences. No language barriers. No more total-lack-of-communication-for-months-at-a-time only to be sent to a new rep in another country. Nope, none of that. You'll be speaking with a real person, someone who knows the industry and can help solve real-world problems.
The guys working in the shop are the ones taking your call, to help you figure out your challenge. Not some trainee with step-by-step FAQ's you could find online (did we mention our extensive documentation and video tutorials? Most situations are easily resolved with a quick search, before you even pick up the phone)

No scripted auto-attendant generic answers, just real people with real problem-solving skills. We work via phone, email, and video conferencing to ensure whatever your problem is, we get you back up and into production time as quickly as possible.
