Intamsys Funmat HT Enhanced Review: Specs, Features and more

The professional additive manufacturing world was a lot more secluded just a few years ago. In order to enter the segment, you had to buy an industrial-grade 3D printer with quite a hefty price tag. Indeed, buying a 3D printer that could print with high-performance plastics used to be much more expensive. Luckily, the INTAMSYS company found a solution to the problem. The idea was to create a lineup of 3D printers that offered all the same high-end functionality at a more competitive price.

About Intamsys

INTAMSYS is a professional manufacturer of 3D printers represented by a passionate and experienced team of individuals that strive to shape the future by making industrial-grade additive manufacturing technologies accessible to everyone. Since its origination in 2012, the company and its products have been recognized by a number of representatives of automotive, aerospace, medical, educational, and other industries.

The current company lineup mostly consists of industrial-grade 3D printers designed for printing with high-performance engineering thermoplastics. Such machines can be distinguished from the others by the abbreviation FUNMAT included in their name, meaning ‘functional materials’. INTAMSYS takes pride in making high-quality 3D printing with functional materials (e.g. PEEK and ULTEM) a budget-friendly activity available to a wider community. 

 

Intamsys Funmat HT Enhanced

The Intamsys Funmat HT Enhanced is a professional desktop FFF/FDM 3D printer designed to make high-quality parts with outstanding mechanical properties. Compared to most of its competitors that basically offer the same functionality for three times the price, the Funmat HT Enhanced is an affordable all-in-one solution for professional printing with high-temperature engineering-grade plastics. Being compatible with a variety of high-performance thermoplastics such as PEEK, ULTEM, Carbon Fiber-reinforced materials, and PPSU, the machine is able to build strong objects with exceptional chemical and heat resistance.

It is a perfect solution for small businesses aiming to produce long-lasting industrial-grade products such as jigs and fixtures for the automotive industry; implants, prosthetics, dental arches for the medical industry; or incredibly chemical-resistant parts for the petroleum industry. It can also be used to produce a variety of highly durable and lightweight parts, accessories, and much more. The build volume of 260 x 260 x 260 mm allows for the production of a single medium-sized part as well as the simultaneous production of several small-sized ones. The device features a robust all-metal frame that eliminates any unwanted vibrations and contributes to a reliable and consistent printing experience.

The Funmat HT is an easy-to-use 3D printer that delivers high-precision outputs in a fast and consistent fashion. With the ability to print at a minimum layer height of just 50 microns, the device can produce well-detailed objects with an exceptionally smooth surface finish. In addition, it’s mainboard is powered by four independent drivers, providing additional consistency and allowing for rapid manufacturing at a stunning maximum pace of 300 mm/s, that is, however, unachievable in most cases. The rails on the Z-axis along with the ball screw have also been upgraded to its HIWIN counterparts, ensuring a smooth workflow. 

The machine offers a fully enclosed design and boasts its high-end thermal system designed for hassle-free printing with engineering-grade plastics. Indeed, it features an enclosed build chamber offering a constant high-temperature environment of 90°C that helps to reduce warping and stringing, a detachable magnetic build plate that facilitates print removal and can heat up to 160°C, and an all-metal extruder that can reach a maximum temperature of 450 °C. In addition, this 3D printer comes in a fully assembled state, which eliminates any potential play that could’ve otherwise been caused by improper self-assembly.

For other useful features, the Funmat HT Enhanced offers a filament run-out sensor, blackout recovery function, and a separate filament chamber. It is compatible with 1.75 mm materials and 3rd party filaments, allowing you to benefit from a wide material choice. Unlike its predecessor, the Funmat HT, the Enhanced version offers an improved nozzle and automatic bed leveling function for effortless print bed calibration, allowing to proceed to the actual 3D printing as soon as possible. In addition, the bed features an improved motion system and offers a glass-ceramic coating with PI film. Moreover, the machine’s print chamber has been equipped with a built-in camera allowing you to always stay on top of the printing process.
