The Essentium high-speed extrusion (HSE) 3D printing platform is intended to solve issues of strength, speed and cost that arise on the manufacturing floor. According to the company, the printer is faster than comparable technologies, offering print speeds ranging to 1 m/sec. It also offers the ability to heat the nozzle from 20°C to 600°C in less than three seconds. Parts made with the system are said to provide the strength of injection molding using Essentium FlashFuse.
