The Aluminum Hotend from 3D Industries resolves the most common problems with 3D Printing and is the perfect balance
of technologies to help you create successful prints. The all metal body can handle the stress of being repeatedly
heated up to 245 C without swelling and cracking like plastic bodied hotends, but also has a PTFE liner to allow filament
to slide effortlessly to the nozzle.
PEEK hotends can fail when the PTFE liner swells from excessive heat. The PTFE liner can push the barrel out of the PEEK tube,
forcing the heater block and nozzle to literally fall off the printer, or cracking the PEEK body, causing leaks and clogs.
All metal hotends eliminate the PTFE tube which makes them immune to damage from swelling, but suffer when heat creeps up
the metal body from the heater block up. The body can overheat causing filament to liquify too early and jam.
3D Industries rose to the challenge by designing a metal bodied hotend with a PTFE liner. The PTFE liner serves as a non
stick surface that your filament can glide over. In fact, PTFE is the same material used in most non stick frying pans.
By replacing the PEEK with an aluminum body and using a strong steel barrel that the PTFE cannot force out, 3D Industries
has eliminated the biggest causes for hotend failure and jams all in one stroke. The metal barrel is still susceptible
to heat creep, but as long as you configure the ALUHOTEND with the included fan and avoid exceeding the recommended
temperature of 245c, you should be able to reliably and consistently get high resolution prints with a minimum of fuss.
Hotend requires a fan (included) blowing on the heatsink for proper operation.
This hotend comes with a prewired thermistor installed.
