The Apium P400 is a large industrial FDM 3D printer from the German manufacturer Apium Additive Technologies. This high-temperature machine features a patented adaptive heating system alongside a variety of smart functions and is capable of processing high-performance polymers as well as technical polymers or compounds, such as PEEK, ULTEM, and others. Due to its minimal infrastructure requirements to get up and running, the P400 model has been designed for smooth printing and continuous operation. 

One of the distinctive features of the P400 is its patented next generation adaptive zone heating system. Instead of energy-consuming heating of the entire build volume, like most printers with heated build chambers do, an infrared heater is integrated into the print head, saving time and reducing energy consumption. This technology ensures outstanding layer adhesion since the heater remelts the previous layer allowing strong bonds to form between layers. This results in maximized printed part strength and quality of finished prints, comparable to conventionally manufactured parts produced by injection molding.

The independent dual extrusion system allows for consistent production of successful multi-material prints, and the adaptive heating system makes it possible to simultaneously print with materials requiring different temperature settings. With the IDEX system, the user can double the productivity, printing in duplication or mirror mode. The P400 is a versatile platform which allows for easy print head switching depending on the dedicated materials being used. Spare nozzles and other necessary tools are stored comfortably in a convenient integrated tool drawer.

In addition to being a highly efficient and flexible platform, the Apium P400 provides automatic functions ensuring seamless integration into the production environment and convenience of use. Auto bed leveling and integrated optical calibration system for the print head ensure a precise print head alignment and therefore consistent printing results with minimum efforts. All important print process parameters are automatically saved as a PDF protocol.

 

Print quality

The high-temp extruder with adaptive zone heating system and interchangeable nozzles ensure industrial-grade quality of large parts and small objects. Isotropic properties, high mechanical strength and excellent surface quality of the printed models make the P400 suitable for functional prototyping and small-run production in automotive and aerospace industries, for manufacturing microfluidic devices, liquid or vacuum pumps, high current insulators, and more.

The machine can print layers of 50–600 microns and ensures print accuracy of 7.5 and 1 micron in XY and Z planes respectively. High-quality linear rails and servo motors ensure high print quality and low maintenance requirements.

 

Materials

The maximum nozzle temperature of the P400 is 540 °C. Combined with a print bed heated up to 200 °C and innovative 500 °C adaptive heating, this allows processing a wide range of engineering thermoplastics, including PEEK, PEEK-CFR, PEEK-GFR, PEKK, PP, PEI 9085, ABS, PA6-CFR, PVDF, PA6-GFR, and others. As an open material system, the printer is compatible with a wide range of polymers from different manufacturers including custom materials. The integrated dryer houses up to four filament spools and can heat up to 150 °C, providing optimal storage conditions, eliminating residual humidity, and thus providing enhanced print result.

Equipped with a spacious build volume of 400 x 300 x 300 mm, the Apium P400 provides enough space for 3D printing large models or small series manufacturing. The IDEX system allows printing two identical models in one printing session.

 

Printer controls and software

The P400 can be operated via a built-in LCD touchscreen with an intuitive, user-friendly interface, allowing you to manage print jobs and check the printer status. In addition, the integrated software tracks the status of consumables and maintenance parts. The printer's open system provides the user with the possibility to employ self-developed print tools and any slicer of their choice.

Thanks to Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity options, the printer can be controlled remotely via Apium web interface. The user can visualize models in the 3D viewer, arrange the printing queue, or check the printer status.
