The E3D Hemera is the latest Extruder Hot End from E3D. Featuring a compact integrated system they were able to get the price down to mass manufacture these units at a great price.
They developed a custom motor, based on a NEMA 17 frame, with our own faceplate designs. This is neat as it allows us to use the motor itself as part of the assembly and to add our own features for the user’s convenience, such as the mounting T-Slots.
E3D Hemera is a dual-drive system with a hardened stainless steel drive train. Individually CNC cutting each hobb allows for a round-bottomed root, with a tooth that curves upwards to a robust, sharp tip. The round bottom of the profile strongly resists filament debris wedging into the drive gear and in almost all cases it’s self-cleaning as any debris simply falls off the teeth.
*Please note* - whilst the custom motor is similar to a Nema 17, it isn’t a standard Nema 17. Therefore, E3D Hemera it is not compatible with other Nema 17 motors and you'll not be able to swap the motor with either a compact but powerful/ slimline motor or other 3rd party motors.
