AON3D's Duplication Mode Doubles the Output of a High Temperature 3D Printer

Montreal-based AON3D announced an optional firmware upgrade for its AON M2+ High-temperature Industrial 3D Printer to enable Duplication Mode and Mirror Mode 3D printing. This innovative new feature doubles the production of new and existing M2+ machines, allowing factory floors to keep up with expanding demand. With unrestricted access to the world's most advanced thermoplastics, the most significant build volume in its class, and features that minimize post-processing, the AON M2+ continues to be the agile manufacturing solution of choice for businesses worldwide, capable of producing functional end-use parts at scale in half the time of any other high-temperature 3D printer.

Through an Independent Dual Extrusion (IDEX) mechanism, the AON M2+ will be able to print two identical parts or two mirrored parts concurrently, doubling the machine's output. In addition, the IDEX system allows for more design freedom because it can print big interior geometries and non-linear holes with water-soluble support options while cutting down on the amount of work needed afterward.

The AON M2+ can also print high-performance materials like PEEK, PEKK, and ULTEMTM, which are some of the strongest and best materials available for 3D printing right now.
  • It has a superior strength-to-weight ratio compared to many metals
  • High heat resistance: temperatures up to 260 °C can be used continuously
  • Resistance to chemicals and hydrocarbons
  • Low friction and high wear resistance
  • Additionally, there are other advantages.

The AON M2Duplication +'s Mode upgrade provides twice the size, twice the output, and more material possibilities than any other sub-$60,000 high-temperature 3D printer on the market. By the fall of this year, duplication and mirror mode is planned to be available via a firmware upgrade. Existing AON M2+ customers on a success plan will automatically receive the upgrade.
