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.
Deliveries Begin Q1 2022
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Crank out more parts in less time, with one of the highest-flowing hotend designs available.
Unlimited extensibility with industry-standard electronics -- add a Raspberry Pi, more motors, other features -- plus, you can use any slicer you want, on any system - Windows PC, Mac, or Linux. Modify to your heart's content.
The Integrated WiFi (or ethernet, for our DOD customers) web interface and standard RepRap firmware makes the machine easy to control, from anywhere in the shop. Use your workstation, laptop, tablet or phone to control the printer -- using macros, or custom configurations you develop for your own needs.
