3D Structures from Melted Thermoplastics
Our advanced motor driven piston extruders extend the capability of the pneumatic basic set:
- High pressure (Virtually > 100 bar) prints viscoelastic and high-viscous materials, even with tiny nozzle diameters
- Constant piston moves ensure constant material flow, independent on the material level inside the cartridge
The High-Temperature Piston Extruder prints thermoplastics like PLA (Polylactic acid) at temperatures up to 250°C. It comes with the stainless steel cartridge as well as stainless steel nozzle. A two zone heater compensates the temperature drop from the cartridge to the nozzle.
The Gradient Mixer (Available for BS4.2 only) combines the outlet of two HT-Extruders with a special mixing head. It allows varying mixing ratios of two thermoplasts during one print.
Printing of larger volumes (50 mL) is available by the piston extruder for hydrogels.
