Gearbox™ HT2 3D Printer compared to Roboze Printers

Gearbox™ HT2 was designed to be a best-in-class industrial printer ideal for the most demanding materials and applications.

Built to take full advantage of our industry-leading CarbonX™ Carbon Fiber Reinforced 3D Filaments, the Gearbox™ HT2 was designed to allow our customers to fully utilize these grades by incorporating high-temp extrusion, heated build chamber, industrial mechatronics and controls, and on-board filament drying technology. HT2 is our answer when customers ask which printer we recommend to make CF-PEKK and CF-PEEK parts.
