AON3D realizes the complexity often related with printing ABS, PEEK, and other high performance polymers. To help our users, AON3D has added the Vacuum Bed feature to the AON M2+ (CE), AON M2+ (R-NZ) and AON M2+ machines. The technology behind the Vacuum Bed feature not only helps eliminate the uneven build sheet surfaces, but also enhances the overall AON3D experience that allows the user to remove the build sheet and printed part with ease, and as a whole.
