Introducing world’s first professional filament dryer
December 22, 2017 at 11:11 am
On the TCT show in Birmingham, 3D printer manufacturer Mass Portal will introduce an all new product line — professional-grade filament dryers for the open-materials 3D printing industry.
With Mass Portal Filament Dryers, professional material drying know-how and technology is being made available for the owners of desktop 3D printers. Customers can enjoy notable improvements in printing process stability and final part quality:
- reduced moisture-related processing issues, improved process stability and increased print success rate,
- improved part surface quality and overall cosmetic look,
- improved mechanical properties of printed parts,
- enables use of moisture-sensitive materials that are otherwise unprintable or deliver unacceptable results.
Feeding filament conditioned under controlled conditions further improves process stability and repeatability — removing the variations in ambient temperature and relative humidity.
Use of properly dried and conditioned material unlocks the possibility to print parts with maximum performance properties that the 3D printing materials are capable of delivering. For end use parts or industrial production applications, this is of great importance.
Mass Portal Filament Dryers are compatible with most 3D printers, both 1.75mm and 2.85/3mm filament diameters, and most widely used open materials spool sizes.
Mass Portal designs, manufactures and sells high definition, “open materials” 3D printing systems. Pharaoh® series thermoplastic 3D printers, introduced in 2014, are known for the highest part surface quality in industry. In 2016, Mass Portal introduced the Dynasty® Additive Manufacturing System — an automated printfarm that brings thermoplastic 3D printing technology beyond prototyping into the low-volume plastic parts production industry. Now, with the Filament Dryer line, Mass Portal is delivering a solution for raising the actual performance and materials compatibility of any “open materials” 3D printer.
