Springs for UM2 Feeder

Posted · Springs for UM2 Feeder

By a stupidity of my own doing I lost the spring that is part of the original feeder and despite all junk I have in house, spare springs are not part of that list.

Can anyone point me to the specs of the spring and perhaps a location where I can purchase a replacement?

Thanks! I really want to start printing again :O

    According to the UM2s BoM it's the same type as the UM1 (D2110, of which I can't find much). However spare pieces for the UM1 feeder everywhere have the same spec, can anyone confirm:

     

    • Outside diameter: 7.5mm
    • Inside diameter: 5mm
    • String diameter: 1.2mm
    • Height: 20mm

    I think I remember reading somewhere the UM2 spring was replaced by a new version (weaker?) somewhere end Q1 this year. Probably not a big deal when you use roberts feeder as you have a lot of freedom for dailing in the correct tension... you could order at UM but you won't have it before you go to London ;) I would just try a local hardwarestore if in a hurry ... took mine out to measure it, most is close exept for the height ...

     

    • Outside diameter: 7.5mm
    • Inside diameter: 4,7 mm
    • String diameter: 1.3mm
    • Height: 16 mm

    Thanks Arjan for measuring it.

    I got the info from the UM2 assembly guide, which still mentions the same spring as the UM1 one.

    Here's me hoping silently they'll have some spare parts to purchase in London ;)

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        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.
