Robust 3D Printer for Industrial Use

The x500 is the answer to the current demand on the market and offers in addition to the large construction volume of 500 x 400 x 450 (XxYxZ) millimeters further innovations which are the focus of the requirements of industrial use.

German RepRap x500 Industrial 3D Printer Overview

Sturdy steel frame, new extruder technology and heated building chamber

With its steel frame and a total weight of approx. 185 kg, the machine offers an extremely high stability. A new extruder technology makes it possible to process future material developments precisely. The cooling circuit allows a stable process even at maximum building chamber temperature.

Heated Building Chamber

The heated building chamber (80 °C max) and the new high temperature hot-end (400 °C max) allow to process the latest technical filaments for highly durable parts and functional models. Warping and shrinking effects of conventional Filaments can be reduced effectively.

Auto Bed Leveling

The print bed is calibrated by the new auto bed leveling function. Surface irregularities are measured and compensated before the print starts. Any manual calibration of the printing bed is now redundant.

Simplify3D Software

One integrated software suite contains everything you need to print high quality parts. Customizable settings and advanced processes put the controls into your hands. Support for dual-extruders, multi-part printing and even multiple processes within one part. Included in scope of delivery.

Filament Feed Control

The movement of the filament is tracked by sensors in the new DD4 Extruder and synchronized live with the filament feeding. This guarantees a precise and constant material flow during the whole process. Printing Errors caused by twisted Filament spools or by inconsistent material flow are now obsolete.

On Site Service

Through our worldwide certified partner network, we offer our customers our unique on-site service. In addition to the maintenance and repair services, our partner offer Software and Hardware Training.

DD4 Extruder Technology

The x500 has a completely new precision measuring technology for its DD4 extruder. The new technology allows a variable contact pressure for the filament and has pre-set settings for all GRR filaments. As a result, very brittle as well as very flexible materials can be processed without further knowledge. This enables the x500 to process future material developments precisely. The cooling circuit allows a stable process even at maximum room temperature.

Precision in Continous Operation

The basic construction of the x500 is extremely stable thanks to the steel frame. The production takes place in Germany with high-quality industrial components. This makes the x500 a long-lasting device that has been designed from the outset for industrial use.

Stand-Alone Printing

The 7-inch touchscreen allows intuitive operation of the printer. This allows each print job to be started comfortably. Optionally, a network connection via Ethernet and WLAN with browser-based control and monitoring via webcam is possible. The “override settings” allow an intervention in the printing parameters during printing.

Maintenance and Service

Tailored to the needs of industrial use, the customer is optionally offered a maintenance contract as well as professional on-site service by a trained technician. The worldwide German RepRap partner network ensures a reliable service through a personal contact person.
