Zortrax Endureal

3rd generation industrial 3D printer for high-tech manufacturing

Advanced thermal management enabling efficient work with high-performance polymers is what 3rd gen 3D printers are all about. Temperature of filaments in Zortrax Endureal LPD Plus 3D printer is tightly controlled at each stage of processing to achieve utmost precision and best possible mechanical properties of 3D printed parts.

Industrial safety systems

Zortrax Endureal has 17 built-in sensors working in real-time to guarantee seamless operation in high-tech manufacturing and product development projects.

Blackout Response System

When a power outage is detected, Endureal uses the energy stored in built-in capacitors to save the exact position of the printing head. This way printing can be resumed from the same spot when the power is back on.

Monitored printing progress

Printing progress can be monitored remotely with a camera installed in the Endureal’s printing chamber. The camera is capable of live video streaming and designed to work in high-temperature operating conditions.

Advanced filament sensors

Separate sensors work at all times to detect events when filament is jammed or depleted. The printer also monitors the weight of the filament spools to determine if there is enough material to complete the printing process.

Controlled filament’s compartment

Filaments are stored in a closed environment at optimal temperature. A built-in moisture absorber is responsible for reducing humidity to levels appropriate for highly hydrophilic materials.

Performance under control

  • Temperature sensors constantly measure temperature of 

    crucial components to prevent overheating.

  • Capacitive sensors measure build platform and nozzles’ relative 

    position to ensure calibration is on point.

  • Optical sensors working with no mechanical 

    parts ensure precise extruder’s positioning in all axes.

  • Fan stop sensors immediately detect when fans are

     disconnected or malfunctioning to ensure adequate cooling.

  • Extruder sensors detect a disconnection or failure in the 

    extruder to ensure seamless operation.

Industrial dual-extrusion

Endureal has an advanced dual-extrusion system capable of printing high-temperature filaments with soluble support structures. The extruder components and filament cables are thermally shielded from the build chamber by an elastic insulator with pore size smaller than the mean free path of air particles to achieve lowest possible thermal conductivity.

Designed for processing challenging materials like PEEK or CFR filaments, Endureal can also work with a wide range of cost-effective filaments like Z-ULTRAT Plus, Z-NYLON, or Z-PCABS. The printer supports both single and dual-extrusion modes.

Heated aluminum build-platform

Endureal has an aluminum build platform that can heat up to temperatures enabling processing of high-performance polymers. Easily switchable build plate made of ferritic steel covered with a PEI film is attached to the build platform to ensure proper adhesion of all supported filaments. Switchable build-plates are fairly elastic to make model removal easier and faster which is important in high-volume production.

Easy to implement
and run

Being a full-fledged industrial machine, Endureal can be implemented as easily as Zortrax desktop-class 3D devices. Intuitive user interface and software with carefully tuned settings predefined for each dedicated filament make Endureal ready to work at full capacity from day one. The ease of implementation extends further into running the printer due to business continuity kit containing everything necessary for fast and efficient in-house maintenance.
