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 v2 is unlocking the potential of in-house additive manufacturing.
Parts you can sell, materials you can print jigs and fixtures from, vacuum molds, press brake tooling - if it can be 3D printed, there's a good chance you can do all that and more, on the 22 IDEX v2.
Aerospace-grade replacement parts, tooling, fixtures
Autoclavable, sterilizable tools for medical applications
Rigid, chemical & radiation resistant polymer composites
High-temp, metal-replacement thermoplastics
Under-the-hood in race cars, to satellites in space - whether you're a one-man operation, or a 20,000+ employee aerospace company, this machine can get your job done.
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. Dual chamber thermistors monitor the temperature, with auxiliary convection fans ensuring an evenly-heated build volume.
Not locked into proprietary materials, limited nozzle temperatures, or overly-expensive branded filaments... we carry the best materials we can find, at Vision Miner, from several sources -- but you're ALWAYS welcome to use your own. FAR 25.853, UL94 V0 rated materials, and more.
The latest and greatest firmware comes installed on your 22 IDEX, and there are always up-to-date links to the latest versions available in our documentation.
Many 3D printers include air filters, which are usually HEPA filters and a thin sheet of activated carbon. This simply isn't enough for a production environment, barely passing as filtration at all -- the 22 IDEX comes standard with hookups for 2" hoses, for connecting to industrial fume extraction systems.
Our automated XY toolhead alignment eliminates the older style of having to do multiple alignment prints. Pulling from proven, precision practices of the CNC Industry, our Auto Alignment probe takes the guesswork out of the picture with one easy, automated process.
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 - the printer will automatically shut down if it senses overheating, thermal runaways, or electrical errors. Solid State Relays and quality wires are just a fraction of the safety features designed into the machine, from the ground up.
When building the 22 IDEX, we wanted to use only the highest quality components, giving you the precision of an industrial machine on your desk.
Robust high-temp stepper motors, linear rails, quality wiring and industry-leading electronics means you get consistent print quality and accuracy, while minimizing overall system maintenance. Using extra-wide 12mm 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 customizable 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.
Crank out more parts in less time, with one of the most consistently-flowing hotend designs available. We absolutely love the quality -- incredible fine, beautiful CNC finish, and made right here in the USA.
When it comes to order of importance, it doesn't get much more important than your extruder -- the crux of the filament being printed on your machine. The LGX Pro from Bondtech now has all-metal gears and internals, making it a great choice for driving the high-performance thermoplastics you'll be extruding non-stop, without worrying about nearly as many jams, clogs, or inconsistent extrusions.
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. Plus, we offer pre-configured profiles for SuperSlicer, including materials like PEEK, CF-Nylon, PCTG, etc, and you're always able to use whichever slicer you prefer.
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 v2 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.
