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:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
