AON3D announces the launch of their AON-M2 2020, the latest industrial 3D printer in their flagship product line. The AON-M2 2020 has been designed to print a continuously expanding array of melt-processable thermoplastics, including PEEK, ULTEM™, PEKK, polycarbonate, and hundreds of other materials.

Customers can realize the most demanding applications, since the extensive material compatibility offers the opportunity to 3D print parts that can resist harsh chemicals, stand up to extreme temperatures, and withstand intense mechanical stress.

The AON-M2 2020 is ideal for fabricating parts for a wide range of applications, including tooling, jigs and fixtures, end-use parts, or rapid prototyping.

Open Materials 3D Printers Unlock More Applications

Since its founding, AON3D has committed to the open materials standard in contrast with many 3D printing companies that restrict customers to a limited selection of costly, proprietary materials.

In addition, AON3D has focused its materials engineering expertise on developing optimized process parameters for vendors that provide the highest quality materials on the market. These include notable brands such as Solvay, SABIC, Kimya, DSM, Infinite Material Solutions, and many others.

Designed for Part Accuracy and Repeatability

The AON-M2 2020 industrial 3D printer improves upon the original design with its focus on part accuracy and repeatability, as well as reliability. “From the all stainless-steel frame to minimize thermal expansion, to the chamber heater redesign that offers precise control of the thermal environment and heats up in less than 15 minutes, the AON-M2 2020 is an exciting step-up for AON3D,” said CEO, Kevin Han. “We are thrilled to continue offering customers the widest range of material options for their applications and materials expertise that goes well beyond the machine design.”

Parts made on the AON-M2 2020 using SABIC ULTEM™ AM9085F filament and AMS31F support material.

Reach the Maximum Potential for Your Material

With its higher chamber temperature of 135°C (275°F), and bed and hot end temperatures of 200°C (392°F) and 470°C (878°F) respectively, the AON-M2 2020 unlocks an even wider range of high-performance materials that are in demand by industries such as aerospace, defense, R&D, and manufacturing. Operators can achieve better mechanical properties for printed parts with its precision thermal control, enabled by the innovative chamber heater design and engineered convective flow path. Also, its huge 454 x 454 x 640 mm (18 x 18 x 25 in) build chamber accommodates larger parts, and its dual independent tool-heads can print support material for complex designs with ease.

AON3D pairs its industrial 3D printing platform with a comprehensive process expertise offering; application engineers, trainers, and PhDs combine forces to support users in achieving exceptional part outcomes.

“We are seeing a growing demand for an additive manufacturing platform that can print the strongest thermoplastics, as well as an increasing recognition that reaching the maximum mechanical property potential for any part-material combination is a challenge best met with expert support,” said Director of R&D, Andrew Walker. “The AON-M2 2020 is the bedrock of a complete solution we offer customers for getting from CAD file to end-use parts, without sacrificing affordability.”
