200°C chamber

Materials printed at their Tg provide optimal strength and prevent contraction.

Asset 2

HT materials

ULTEM, PEKK, PPSU and other high resistance materials at their best.

Asset 3

Beltless motion

Benefit from improved accuracy and high uptimes.

Asset 4

Hybrid Drying Technology™

Moisture-free materials thanks to ancillary dryer improve their performance and guarantee print results.

PUHT01

An actively controlled chamber where materials achieve their optimal performance

PUHT02

One of the key elements enabling a material extrusion process to produce high performance parts is thermal stability. Polymers, particularly crystallines, are prone to contraction when the chamber’s temperature is unstable. This makes thermal stability fundamental, particularly when printing larger parts.

 

In addition, when printing occurs at the polymer’s glass transition temperature, its molecular chain favors bonding with the newly deposited layer. This process improves layer adhesion significantly, as well as the part’s isotropic strength. These are key enablers for additive manufacturing to replace traditional subtractive processes.

A beltless motion system for improved
accuracy and high uptime

accuracy

0.05 mm accuracy

Macro PU HT features a hybrid motion system using ball screws for XY motion. This improves the printer’s accuracy to optimal values for the part sizes the system can print.

maintenance

Reduced downtime

Besides, beltless motion prevents the components’ wear and tear, improving the printer’s uptime and reducing the need for regular maintenance.

The beltless motion system is also present in both HT and LT versions of Macro Production Modules.

Smart3D Filaments

filaments

There is nothing like a reliable and open material industrial FFF platform with high temperature control to enable the widest material capabilities on the market. If your filament can be printed, it will print best on your Macro HT.

A scalable production approach

The scalable approach enables low initial investments, which may be increased gradually to meet manufacturing demand.

Macro HT is also production ready

Modularity and scalability are in Macro’s DNA. The same process that enables companies to transition from product development with their Prototyping Units to manufacturing with their Production Modules with a shared hardware, software and material platform, is extended to the High Temperature versions of the technology.

A flexible LT-HT setup for production systems

Production Modules have been designed for a flexible configuration dependent on the user’s needs. While companies may use their PM’s for the mass production of repeated sets of parts, customers can decide how many of each module’s 4 print chambers need to be HT capable.
