Advice for new heating table installation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Advice for new heating table installation

I'm planning the upgrade of one of our existing printers to have a removable heating table.  I'd love some advice on heating tables, either for purchasing or installation.


We're going to be putting this into a Dimatix DMP-2850 inkjet printer, so we can increase our substrate temperature from 60 c to 100 c.  As such, what we really want is a flat, thin, easy to control heating table that is durable, and with a minimum of hassle to place in and level flat.  I'm not opposed to adjustible legs, but if we can avoid them I would be happier.


  • Does anyone have advice on reliable aluminum heating beds in the 200 x 200 mm to 225 x 225 mm range that could pull this off? 
  • Any advice for making low-profile leveling setups (we need to keep the total height below 1.2 cm). 
  • Would you recommend glass or aluminum print surfaces (our current one is metal, so I'm inclined towards that).
  • Are there any options I should specifically avoid, based on what I'm trying to accomplish?
