The first pieces are printing and the fiability tests had started.

Following the trials from January to March, there have been a lot of changes, the print head has undergone a complete redesign.

We added : 3 ventilators which blow hot air on the piece, one isolation of the hot area, thanks to a special silicon which can endure 500°C, an exterior skirt made of silicon gathers the hot air on the piece, a new system of lock in position, news ball joints, a new system of quick deconnection, a new cooler turbine… Almost everything has been modified, in order to improve the quality of prints and the fiability !

The whole line of extrusion (Extrudeurs, cooling tubes and print head) can be disconnected and extracted of the machine in some minuts, thanks to 4 knurled buttons, which facilitate greatly the maintenance.

This new print head will be the one delivered on series production machines.

Technical specifications of the ABSolutexT are here.
