Airwolf 3D's new EVO 22 3D printer is optimized for large-format 3D printing. The new EVO 22 is outfitted with a cartridge-style planetary extruder assembly and a three-bolt-reinforced QuickChange hot end for faster extrusion of materials. The EVO series' proprietary Tri-Heat Build Environment is key to printing large parts successfully.

The Tri-Heat is comprised of two built-in chamber heaters and a high-temperature print bed, rated for 160° C. It gives users control over the machine's internal ambient temperature, which allows them to create the ideal thermal environment for supporting large part production. The TriHeat technology has a patent-pending hot end and enclosed chamber design that optimizes and regulates the heat needed to increase part strength while minimizing cracks and warpage.

The system has a build volume of 3,276 cubic inches so it is ideal for prototyping and producing massive parts in end-use materials. The thermal environment is ideal for using HydroFill Water-soluble Support to manufacture large parts with complex internal geometries.

The EVO 22 features Airwolf 3D's proprietary firmware operating on the GENESIS board, a custom 32-bit automotive-grade microcontroller developed specifically for delivering higher speeds, more precision and control at ultra-high temperatures. The EVO 22 ships with a HEPA and carbon air filtration system, patent-pending 100 percent aluminum unitized frame, one-piece stainless-steel bed frame, ball screw Z stage and linear-guide-based CoreXY motion system.

The EVO 22 Additive Manufacturing Center is available now and will start shipping in September 2018.
