Unbeatable reliability for industrial applications

The x500pro is the solution for serial printing high-quality materials such as high-temperature, abrasive and other materials. In addition to a large build volume of 500 x 400 x 450 (X/Y/Z) mm, it incorporates additional innovations that are essential for industrial applications.

The x500pro is designed for the production of parts made from abrasive, high-temperature, and other materials. The build area can be heated to 80 °C in a short time (approx. 12 minutes). In conjunction with the high-temperature printhead (400 °C), this enables technically challenging materials to be processed for the production of heavy-duty components and functional models.

Medium Range for 3D Printing

The high-quality material conveyance system ensures a closed, seamless material feed, automatically even after changing materials. In particular, this makes it easy to handle even flexible materials.

The supply feeder is designed for a material diameter of 1.75 mm which also facilitates excellent processing reliability. 

Thanks to the fully automated system leveling technology, there is no longer any need to laboriously adjust the print bed before every print job. The print bed is automatically leveled by means of high-precision laser measurements using a three-point procedure when the equipment is initially set up and put into operation. This is done by two independent motors, ensuring optimal print bed alignment. The process takes less than 5 minutes.

The processing reliability of the printing operation is significantly enhanced thanks to the filament feeder and tracking system. The system constantly monitors the material feed while it is running and pauses if, for example, no more material is available. Printing can simply resume subsequently. In addition, the system registers the difference between target and actual speed for material usage, which is undetectable to the naked eye, and it uses this information to automatically regulate the printing speed.

The x500pro has a sophisticated water-cooling design. To ensure an optimal supply of material, this is maintained at the ideal feed temperature thanks to a water-cooled zone before it reaches the hot nozzle. The motors are also water-cooled. This is an important factor for process reliability and repeats precision, particularly for a heated build area (80 °C) and high nozzle temperature (400 °C)

Heated ceramic print bed:

The 6 mm thick, heated glass-ceramic print bed (150 °C) optimizes process quality because the object adheres better to the print bed.


The x500pro operates using water-cooled DD4 dual extruder technology and is designed with the new dual lift extruders.

Safety concept in accordance with industry standards:

The footswitch enables controlled safe system interventions while the process is in operation.

Electronics for sophisticated users:

The whole electronics system for the x500pro is housed in a special electrical cabinet. The industrial computer can be intuitively operated via the 7 inch touchscreen. Network connectivity is achieved via Ethernet cables which allows remote access and monitoring via tablet, smartphone, or computer. Printing tasks can be started directly from a USB stick or by using the browser-based controls.
