Is it possible to repair the AA core?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Is it possible to repair the AA core?

Hi everyone!

Our UMS5 had a little accident and ruined the AA core. Do you think it is repairable? Is it worthy?

Assuming it can be eventually cleaned and works, will it be reliable?


thanks in advance!

    Yes that should be relatively easy to clean, and the print core is not that fragile, so it should not take any damage from it. 

    (I have seen cores in a worse stade that worked well after a cleaning)


    Is it worth it, well that depends. 

    If its a privet printer I would not hesitate to do it.

    if it's an company printer its probably cheaper to buy a new than to pay your time to clean it.

    Btw. When it's not more, try and put the core back in the machine and slowly heat it. around 150c-175c you should be able to wipe it off with a cloth.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
