Hydra is our multi-purpose 3D printer that can significantly reduce your costs and production time. No matter if you want to create rapid prototypes, produce custom spare parts, or create the whole product – Hydra is the right choice for you.
Print using 45+ types of materials ranging from PLA, through Nylon and PEEK up to the chemically resistant PPS. Choose from various print bed surfaces and change them easily thanks to the vacuum hold-down bed. Interchangeable printheads and heated chamber always provide ideal printing parameters for every material.
Hydra’s modular design makes it easy to replace its components. Technical Condition Monitoring System (TCMS) and components provided by the most reputable brands, ensure trouble-free operation for many years without interrupting your workflow.
Interchangeable liquid-cooled printheads
The modular system allows you to change the printhead type quickly and with no tools needed, to easily adjust the printer for your specific needs. The variety of printheads enables you to print basic materials like PLA or ABS but also use engineering materials like Nylon or PEEK. Dual printing nozzles combined with water-soluble supports make it very easy to create even the most complicated geometries.
Heated chamber for advanced polymers
Working with advanced polymers requires uniform temperature within the whole printing environment. Enclosed and heated chamber makes it possible to print in ideal conditions ensuring the reduction of warp and deformation of printed models. Integrated HEPA and activated carbon filters reduce the level of harmful particles, gases, and unpleasant smells, which are released during printing.
There is no need to use screws or clamps anymore. Now you can easily change the print surfaces with just one push of a button. Use glass, BuildTak, BuildTak PEI or PEI sheet and be sure that they stay in place. All the necessary equipment, including a quiet vacuum pump, is installed inside the machine.
The liquid cooling is used for cooling the print modules, which is required due to the high temperatures involved in printing engineering polymers. Replacement of the heads is possible thanks to the special self-sealing connector. It can be safely unplugged even when the pump is running, without creating the slightest spills. All necessary equipment is installed inside the machine.
Filament drying mode
The heated chamber can be used to dry the moist filament reels. To do that, you need to detach the print head and select the dedicated mode on the screen. This solution is really convenient, particularly for water-soluble materials used for support structures.
There are over 45 compatible materials from which you can choose PLA or ABS for fast and cost-effective prototyping, Nylon for stiff, wear-resistant gears, PEEK for parts resistant to high heat, and many more. The possibilities are endless.
