AON3D: Revolutionizing 3D Printing with Metal Replacement Polymers

Monday, July 1st, 2024

In the ever-evolving landscape of additive manufacturing, AON3D stands out as a pioneering force. Founded in 2015, this Montreal-based company has made significant strides to make it easy and affordable to 3D print the world’s highest performance polymers, also known as metal replacement polymers. In a recent conversation with Eric Beardslee, Product & Content Marketing Manager at AON3D, we delved into the innovative solutions and applications that are propelling the company to the forefront of the industry.

AON3D’s Vision and Mission

AON3D’s mission is clear: to democratize industrial 3D printing by providing open material printers that allow users full control over the entire process. Beardslee explained that the founders were frustrated with the status quo, where proprietary systems limited users to specific settings and materials. This motivated them to create a printer that offers unparalleled flexibility and control with end-to-end automation for those who want “just push print usability”.

“We are a hardware and software company that focuses primarily on metal replacement polymers,” Beardslee stated. “We’re working towards AM adoption in regulated applications through process automation, AI-drive process tuning, and in-process monitoring, which delivers stronger, more consistent, and quality verified parts.”


Cutting-Edge Hardware: The Hylo High Temperature 3D Printer

The Hylo High Temperature 3D Printer

At the heart of AON3D’s hardware offerings is Hylo, one of the largest and fastest high temperature 3D printers on the market, is able to process the world’s highest performance polymers, such as PEEK and ULTEM™. With a build volume of 650 x 450 x 450 mm and independent dual extrusion, Hylo can produce full scale, end-use parts in a fraction of the time. 

“Our printer has end-to-end automation,” Beardslee said. “It features an automated material system, optical nozzle inspection and XY calibration, independent extruder leveling, and in-process monitoring. Through automation, we can achieve new levels of reliability and part consistency”
