Information about the extrusion head

Post by TheBlackKey » Mon Aug 24, 2015 5:40 pm

Hello everybody,

hopfully anybody can help me here with a "problem". I am currently writing my Bachelor Thesis "Developement of an Extrusion head for an industrial Robot". The main task in this work, is obviously to create an own extrusion head, to gain the ability to print parts with an industrial robot. One part of this thesis will be the comparison of some extrusion heads from different companies. For that I Need detailed Information about the construction of this extrusion heads.
This leads me to my question. Can anybody give me some detailed Information about the extrusion head from UP3D?
Its quite hard to get Information about this.

Thank you in advance!

Christopha

Certainly i could, but as i wrote, i have to compare several extrusion heads. This is why I am looking for such Information from different companies. It would become a little bit expensive to buy each extrusion head. In addition I can't use them after studying.
If I only had to examine one, i probably bought one.

PM me with your private email address and I can send you a 3D PDF of the extruder design on my "UP Plus Pro" that you can study.
