Head included with Upgrade kit for UM2E+

Recommended Posts

Morning,

 

I've previously installed the upgrade kit and has worked awesome for some time.  We've had a recent mishap where the ID threads for the nozzles have been contaminated with PLA.  It's been cleaned since, but I'm curious: If I want to replace that head, what part would I order?  Is it essentially the Olsson block?

 

Thanks

Yes.  The Olsson block.  I sell them in USA at thegr5store.com.  I also sell a slightly better version called the "block v3" which has less heat loss to air and better heat conduction to the nozzle.  

 

But you should be fine.  Just always change the nozzle when it's at least 130C.  I usually change the nozzle at 150C to 180C.  And you can ignore the plastic in the thread.  Also I recommend you use a torque wrench at around 0.5 to 1.0nM.  This one works great:

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
