All Metal Hotend with Slotted Cooling Block for Duplicator 6
This is the Micro Swiss all metal hotend kit for Wanhao Duplicator 6 with the following improvements:
- Significantly better heat transfer
- Slotted clamping system
- No set screw to ding and damage thermal tube
- Easier disassemble and easier adjustments
- Precise control on bore diameter
This upgrade includes a modified thermal barrier tube, nozzle and cooling block. The thermal barrier tube is made from 2 different materials: the lower thermal break is made from stainless steel, because it offers low thermal conductivity, and the upper part is made from aluminum for better thermal conductivity, to carry away any heat from the filament.
Micro Swiss' all metal hotend will let you print at much higher temperatures than possible with the original PTFE-lined one. Another benefit of an all metal hotend design is more consistent melt chamber control. During slow extrusion rate, in PTFE-lined hotend, transition zone from solid to molten plastic tends to creep upward, creating more stringy prints. With an all metal design, a transition zone is always constant, located right at the heat break. With fast extrusion rates, PTFE tube doesn't have enough thermal conductivity to properly melt all the plastic coming out. On original extruders, that limitation happens around 60 mm/s, depending on nozzle size. All metal hotends solve this problem, as the plastic is surrounded by a thermally conductive material throughout its length.
