Titanium nozzles


Recommended Posts

Posted · Titanium nozzles

Hi, folks!

 

Today I got my first nozzles of a high-strength titanium alloy that is compatible with the E3D extruder ( and a Olssons block, apparently). I would like to conduct large-scale tests, but my ordered filament with carbon and copper will come only after three to four weeks. If anyone is interested to participate in the testing, I can send nozzles to several forum users. Nozzle diameter is 0.4 mm, there are options under 2.85 and 1.75 mm filament.20160211_011320.thumb.jpg.df3a2ae94e33b29f9e286f55a23d0676.jpg20160211_011352.thumb.jpg.04fcbe6a6cde3c7690b460996787440b.jpg20160211_011430.thumb.jpg.9ad63411465ecf75be5c19bf06df2619.jpg

    @diettelo About the price thinking it's still early. I want to wait for test results.

    @SandervG Yes, the main idea was to increase the life of the nozzle. Now looking for a delivery service that will be able for sane money to send the nozzles to those who agreed to test. DHL asks for some absolutely cosmic level of price ;-( And the filament will go exactly three weeks.

    Does it also work with regular PLA, or is it aimed for abrasive materials only?

    Just saw a post, something with the email notifications. On idea nothing hinders to print anything plastic with this nozzle. I tried regular PLА from UM and Colorfabb and Clear XT (old version) and the quality was the same as in a conventional nozzle made from bronze. The only difference is the need for more prolonged heating due to low thermal conductivity. Unfortunately, ABS is also over, so I can't say how it behaves in this case.
