- Designed to fit in 16mm Groove Mount (i.e. J-Head)
This stainless-steel insulated actively cooled all-metal HotEnd contains no heated PEEK or PTFE. The all-metal design will withstand temperatures well in excess of that ever required for thermoplastic extrusion.
Version 5 of this HotEnd is more easily assembled and remains directly compatible with standard 16mm extruder bodies and should fit most extruder bodies accordingly.
The CNC-machined parts not only assure quality, accuracy and strength but are also aesthetically pleasing.
All heated parts are either steel, aluminium or brass. By using a stainless steel heat-break and active cooling we have reduced the distance in which the plastic transitions from ambient temperatures to extrusion temperatures to 2mm. This extremely short transition from cold filament to molten plastic provides highly precise extrusion with little extrusion force and reduced jamming.
The supplied thermistor has a maximum temperature of 300ºC and is compatible with most 3D printing systems, however the hotend has been tested to beyond 400ºC using a thermocouple. You can find thermocouples and associated electronics in the electronics section of our store.
